So this week has been great! We found 7 new people to teach and set a date with Skye! We have plans to start teaching her whole family this week as well! :)
Last night it was raining and storming and today, everywhere is flooded! All of Houston! School and work was canceled for lots of people and many homes have already been destroyed...it's so sad to see but it's amazing to see the Ward here work together! We are safe (we live with the RS Pres) and on a hill. But lots of the members and people in this area are experiencing the effects of the flooding.
I don't have a lot of time today but I do have a cool experience I wanted to share ...
On the way to District Meeting, we said a prayer as we were heading out the door and I remember specifically asking for safety as we travel to our next destination. Well, our on way to Cypress there was a car completely stopped on the freeway. One of the cars didn't see us and tried to get over before hitting the stopped car and in turn, we had to slam on our brakes before we hit the car. We were literally not even a foot away from the car. I remember feeling so much peace afterward immediately recognizing Heavenly Father had answers our specific prayer to keep us safe. We said a prayer to thank Him and were off to District Meeting a little sore from the whiplash and still in shock. It truly has strengthened my testimony in prayers and how we need to pray with faith specifically for Heavenly Father to answer. :)
Love Houston, Love the Rain (I'm from Oregon, remember) and love the Gospel!
Hope y'all have a great week!
