|Each of her dozens of great-grandchildren have|
something made by her!
I am sure none of you checked the Weather Channel half as much as we did this week, but up until Friday it looked like we were going to get Hurricane Erika going through Orlando. She has broken up, and will just result in 2-3 inches of rain tomorrow - which we get every day (so sorry we can't share with you dry-Western states!!!) But it was nice to see the infrastructure that the mission has in place not only to keep the missionaries safe, but to have them prepared for an emergency, and trained and primed to help quickly afterward.
|There were MANY people at Costco on Friday filling many|
gas cans like these, in anticipation of the storm!
|We get SO much rain here that EVERY store|
or public place has these bags as you enter!
While transfers don't affect us nearly as traumatically here as they did in Brazil, we were sad to see one of these dear sisters from the Spanish Ward get transferred. They have let us be included in their efforts by asking us to take people to the temple, give them blessings, take them to meetings, check out their apartment when things were amiss, etc. To show their appreciation they had us over for dinner - how cute is that? Only the third time in Orlando to be invited to dinner!!!
|Sweet, sweet girls - they serve in a HARD area - have|
seen dead bodies and lots of other crimes!!!
