In one of my areas, a river flows all over the place, so of course to cross it, they built a whole ton of sketchy hanging bridges. As I gingerly walked over the plethora of bamboo boards held together by cables and nails, others kept passing me running with rice bags on their shoulders. I definitely felt a bit like a foreigner haha. Even though the pathway was perilous, the views were amazing. The people here are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place. In the Book of Mormon the prophet Alma talks about how we can know that there is a God. One of the reasons he gives says, "All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator" (Alma 30:44). I know that God lives and we are His literal children living in His beautifully created world. I'm so thankful to be here and be a witness of Him and his divine creations and all therein...even the sketchy hanging bridges.
