AN eight year old girl named Perla is in the second grade in the Mexican state of Varacruz. One day her teacher asked the class if any one knew how long a whale is. From all indication, this question was intriguing to the whole members of Perla's class and no one answered. Then Perla raised her hand and said, "The gray whale can be 14 meters long and weigh 16 tons." According to the article on Awake! Magazine of February 22, 2005 page 31, in amazement Perla's teacher asked "where did you learn that." Perla replied that she learned it from the Awake! Magazine and offered to show it to the teacher if she'll be allowed to do so. Usually, Perla carries recent issues of Awake! In her school bag in order to share with others. Coincidentally on that day, she had the September 8, 2003, issue containing the article "An intriguing Encounter with the Gray Whales", where she learned about the Gray Whales prior to their teacher's question in their class on that day. You'll agree with me that Perla did not only answer the question as per how long a whale is, but also went further to talk about the weight of the whale, a sure prove of knowledge. This did not only please her teacher but she also opted to read and wanted to keep the copy of the Awake! magazine she recieved from Perla. Nine other members of Perla's class also recieved copies obtained for them by Perla who in return recieved much praises from her teacher On this note, i would like to inform visitors to my Blogs, especially members of my opera community, that Awake! Magazine does not only teach the gospel but also general knowledge of everything that gives glory to the all the mighty creator "Jehovah." On the other hand, it may also please you to know that my blogs is a personal online diary not withstanding its openness to the public. Bulk of the information there in are extracted from Awake! magazines and some perhaps from other sources as the case may be. They are posted there for the purposes of sharing and my personal references as at when the need arises. I sincerly recommend to all, this wonderfull magazine "Awake! "- packed with genuine information and general knowledge that is pleasing to Jehovah. And to the writers of Awake! Magazine i say, more grease to your elbows.
