Good to hear you got some rain!! We were on our way home the other day after a lesson when the windows of heaven opened and dumped a ton of rain on us. 5 minutes later we couldn't have been more drenched. It was fun. And we were glad to be going home so that we could change into dry clothes. The rain felt good. It has been really warm lately and the other day we decided it would be better to sleep outside instead of in our hot room. It felt nice but there were more bugs than I was wishing for! Mom and Dad, happy late anniversary!! Hope you had an enjoyable day! Tell Kaysie and Quinn happy early anniversary!!! Is this 5 years???? Weird.
Dad I had to laugh about your fruit snacks. Glad you survived the long trip even without them. Ha what is Mo going to do with all those puppies? One for everyone! Seminary starting soon already? Summer always goes by fast. I saw my fleece lined tights this morning on my shelf and I’m not looking forward to wearing those again! The hockey season starts in 2 weeks. What?!?!
We had an awesome lesson this week and our member shared how we must lean on the Lord for strength.. She shared how she became a young single mom of 4, all under the age of 10, still needed to go to school, feed the kids, clean the house, and keep a job. She said the first thing she did was get down on her knees and pray and ask Heavenly Father for help. She knows that that is the only reason she was able to do it. She wouldn't have had the energy on her own. Prayer is powerful. The answers we receive are powerful. We had a fun week. We went "survey tracting" in some student housing with our friend. It was interesting and people were more open than if it was the typical "missionary" approach. She had a ton of fun and can't wait to be a missionary. She has been a blessing to us since the day we met her and the gospel has been a blessing to her. I love the gospel. Stay strong in the faith. Have a great week!
