“And the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down…” ~Winnie the Pooh

Hello Everyone!

Sorry, the power at the church temporarily went out so this will be short, but I love you!

This week has been so crazy and so fun! Thank you to everyone who sent Rachel a birthday thought!

Also, sad note, Sister Bryans is getting transferred. Good news, she is going to Oak Leaf, which is in our zone, so I will still see her!

I am going to be companions with Sister Pereira!

These are some highlights of the week:

You know that guy who plays chess in the short film before a bugs life? I basically met him.

*One raindrop falls* Sister Bryans: “No no no no no!” *shoves BOM in bag and zips! “It’s going to rain!!!” Five seconds later starts pouring. We get drenched.

 “Let your smile be your umbrella” I am not sure how effective that advice was…

Basically, it poured all week. It is pouring now. I love it so much!

We also got to go to a Genesis devotional Sunday! It was full blown gospel singing and clapping and hallelujahs and amens. I am not used to it, but it was such a fun experience!

I love all of you so much!

A thought for this week… it comes from 1 Nephi 18:3: “And I, Nephi, did go into the mount oft, and I did pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things.”

I love this correlation, that as we turn to the Lord, He gives us guidance. As we follow Him, He will guide us more! He loves us infinitely.

Please never forget how much your Heavenly Father loves you!
