Good to hear from all of you this week!! This week was an interesting one! The week started with exchanges with Elder Keeler and Horton! I went with Elder Keeler in his area for the day and it was fun! Great to have a change in scenery. We did have dinner with members almost every night which was nice again!
As you can see from the title, it rained a lot this week. Almost every single day! But the worst was yesterday (Sunday)! It POURED all day! So much that a section of Long Beach was under 30 ft of water!! We saw a guy canoeing!! CANOEING!! Well lets just say that California is not prepared for rain. EVER! It was pretty funny but we got soaked!!
I also got Grandmas gift this week and also a card from Nana! They were both great! I enjoyed the quotes! I will read one every p-day for the next year!
Also on Saturday, Elder Keeler and Horton got a call that they were moving apartments and had an hour to get ready! So they called us and we helped them move into their new apartment! This Sunday we also had Stake Conference which was good but only 3 families from the Spanish branch showed up so that was unfortunate!
This week I had the opportunity to share a message with a family here in Long Beach about building our foundation on Christ. I used Helaman 5:12 and talked about how in this era, the tempations, tempests and whirlwinds, as referenced in Helaman, we have to ensure we have a strong foundation. Without that foundation, we will fall to the temptations of Satan. A strong foundation is so important and becoming more so today.
Oh and one of the young girls in the ward painted my nails (yikes!) See pic and also of our area before the storm.
I hope you're all doing well! I miss and love you all! Sorry for the lack of time today......chat next week!
