Matthew 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
So first things first,
I AM COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY SAFE AND FINE!!!
The hurricane was actually not too bad, and all of our missionaries are safe and accounted for. Some of the missionaries around us were evacuated but nobody was hurt and everyone has power back already!
Thursday morning we went out and helped some people prep for the hurricane and it was very very rainy haha
We were very wet by 6 when we had to stay in for the night haha but we had a great time!
The storm didn't really hit until Friday and that's when we stayed inside All. Day. Long.
It was really boring because we didn't have much to do. But we played a scripture game I made up and then had brownies so really, we were living the high life! I also took 3 naps. :)
Here's us staying safely inside.
On Saturday, we got to leave the house again! Our water was shut off during the storm but it came back on that morning. A lady we visit all the time broke her foot during the storm and she didn't have a car, so we went with the Relief Society president and took her to the ER. It was an adventure and we were able to meet and talk to a lady there who was so awesome and prepared to receive the gospel. She met the Elders in St Augustine LAST WEEK! So we gave her a pamphlet and she promised to contact them. She was awesome.
Here's our selfie with our amazing RS president
Then we had a really fun day Sunday. We only had a 40 minute Sacrament meeting and then we split up into teams and tackled some huge service projects all around Jacksonville!
I got to use a machete! An Elder taught me how to use it.
We cut up this whole giant tree on a guys shed. It was awesome!
This tree was in our apartment complex and it got completely ripped out of the ground.
So many trees were uprooted like that haha
But it was a great week!
I am having a grand time!
