This week has been an adventure. Tuesday we were out in Buffalo with our ward mission leader and his wife. We were heading to Louisburg for a lesson with the Listers- a part member family. It started down pouring! We had the lesson and didn't think much of the rain. Well we leave the lesson and it is still raining super hard. We had left our car at the walmart in buffalo so it was about a 8 mile drive. We try to get off the dirt roads and onto the main highway but every road is blocked from all the rain. There are a lot of rivers here and low bridges. All the bridges were covered in water way to high to drive through. Brother DeLaMare was trying to drive over the bridges but we would just get stuck at a bigger one. I thought we were going to die. He was speeding through the bridges at 40mph. I'm pretty sure that isn't how you drive in the rain. After 20 minutes of driving every way we have to make it back towards the Listers. Brother Lister and Brother DeLaMare drive around in his truck to see which way is possible. They come back a little later -it's like by now, the time we are supposed to be home. Long story short, thank goodness for Brother Listers truck, I'm just glad we made it home safely. Heavenly Father was watching out for us.
We have had a really hard time trying to find people. We have 2 investigators- Danielle and the butler family. Neither of them are progressing though so it has been really hard, We spend most of our time tracting or doing family history. We will also try and see people but no one answers the door. We won't give up though! We just keep praying for more investigators.
I think that is all for this week. Everyday is an adventure. We almost got Danielle to church yesterday but she slept in. We were so sad but we got 2 Less active families to church! Yay! I am so happy Brother Benes came. He is super cute old farmer.
It has been really hot and humid and rainy this week. By Thursday it wasn't raining anymore but it is so hot. We did service Saturday morning with the ward then helped the House family with chores on their farm. We probably changed clothes 3 times before we went to dinner that night. tracting on saturday was really long!
I am getting more used to missionary life. I really like it here and I am glad I am here for another 6 weeks.
I love you all and miss you!
We saved a turtle from the highway this week.
Don't worry there weren't any cars around :) It was super cute!
One of the many bridges preventing us from our destination. This was the worst!
We were like 200 ft away from the stop sign to turn onto the main road and we couldn't cross the bridge. We had to turn around and find a different way to go. It was some adventure. It was especially fun to back up Sister Booms on a one way dirt road but that is a daily occurrence. I can't tell you how many times we have to turn around.
Sister Booms carved my name into a banana during lunch.
Small town post offices are the cutest thing ever. they are the size of a box.
