If my sister and I get a fever my mother puts damp rags on our faces to cool us down. So my sister and I try to stay healthy. </li></ul>
<ul><li>I absolutely love going to church. We learn all about the Lord and all he has done for us. I believe that if it was not for the Lord we would not have made it to America. All of the children love going to church. </li></ul>
<ul><li>There are many laws that you should not break. If you break any of the laws you have to pay the price. If you kill somebody you will most likely get a death sentence. If you steal you will have a worse punishment. </li></ul>
