I hope you’re planning on taking tons of pictures of your semester abroad and will be keeping a journal (or maybe a blog) but have you thought about using your Book of Mormon to help you remember your adventures. It sounds weird, but trust me.
You probably read through your blessing every so often but when’s the last time you actually studied it? Not to give you more “homework” to do but it’s something that’s worth your while.
Back in October of 2008, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints announced that they will be building a temple in Rome, Italy! The saints in Italy have been so excited to get their very own temple ever since the announcement was made. But, now over 8 years later, the temple still hasn't been completed. Ever wondered why it's taking so long?
Just like with anything we do in life (whether in the States or Canada or somewhere abroad), there are risks. It's all about putting yourself in the best position to lessen those risks.
While you can still go to church when living abroad in Russia and China, it can be a little more difficult to feel the spirit in a country where you can’t (legally speaking) share your religious beliefs. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative when it comes to sharing your testimony and feeling the spirit.
I grew up in a city where it took about two minutes to drive to my church, and about 6 minutes to walk to it. That was certainly not the case when I was living in China.
Volunteering abroad is a dream come true for many. However, a lot of times it can be a little difficult figuring out how to fit going abroad into our life plans, this is especially true if you are student. Don't let that hold you back from having the time of your life exploring new countries and making a difference in the lives of children abroad. Our solution: take online classes, but not just any online class, take a religion class online. Why? Let me tell you.
Did you have an opportunity to listen to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint's broadcast of their October 2016 General Conference? Many people gather around to receive inspiritation from leaders and there's so many quotes that we found worth jotting down.
It can be difficult to worship when living in a country that has a completely different culture than your own, especially if you can’t make it to church.
Don’t miss out on the chance to go to church while you serve abroad! You can participate in an LDS ward no matter what country you’ll be volunteering in with ILP, but there are a few schools that have a church house (or even have a temple!) close to your school.
