Iraqi Lions' Den

Buddha gave his talk in Primary today. He talked about the story of Daniel in the lions' den and how it teaches us to be obedient and have faith. First, though, he opened with a few words about how reading the scriptures can help us return to Heavenly Father (since that's the Primary theme this month). Then I started to read what we'd written so that he could repeat after me. Here's how it went:

Me: "I love the story of Daniel in the lions' den."

Buddha: "I love the story of Unkey Dino in the lions' den."

Me: "No, Buddha, not Unkey Dino, just Daniel."

Buddha: "I love the story of Unkey Dino in the lions' den." (stubborn little bugger)

I love him. He's always making me laugh. Later on, I found out that on their way to church, he told The Chief he was giving a talk in Primary about Unkey Dino in the lions' den. Well, I guess being in Iraq could be considered its own type of lions' den. :) We can't wait for you to get out of that lions' den and come home next month, Unkey Dino! We love you.

That must be Soren's spin on the scripture to make it more personal. I love it! Great job, Soren.
