    The lesson I have been trying to share as a senior missionary is that there are only two things you take out of this life. Your experience and your relationships. Your experience will be never ending and so will your relationships. The most important relationship is with the Savior. The most important experience will be in coming to know him and what he wants for you.

    I miss the two-minute talks. They were full of fun facts like this article's. As a kid, they filled me with wonder and gave me something to daydream about for the rest of the day. Did you know that the Eskimos have 39,000 words for snow?

    RE: Bread a Biblical type of Jesus. …The Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you;…(Ex 16:4)
    I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.(John 6:35) For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. v 38.

    @Bread as accurate fulfilled Biblical prophecy.
    "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet(Malachi) has written: ".'"( MT 2:5),,
    The birthplace of David and later of Jesus (1Sam 16:1, Matt 2:5, Lu 2:4-7). The name Bethlehem means "house of bread" because the area was a grain-producing area in Old Testament times.

    (Jesus)…born of Mary at Jersusalem? … who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost(Spirit) and bring forth a son yea, even the Son of God. ( Alma 7:10).
