I love this. My mind is in the process of reflecting on a task as a fill-in teacher for the Sunday school gospel doctrine class lesson 12 2013 D&C course - Gathering my people theme. Soon after getting into listening to Mary's experiences with our family in Africa I felt a little bit of how the early LDS pioneers may have lived in certain ways and responding to minds being awakened to truth & clouds of darkness removed. It is good to step out of a so-called first world country and step into a second-world country and see through our Savior's eyes. Speaking more generally, I am grateful for the audiobook formatting.
