"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of those that bring glad tidings of good things, and that say unto Zion: Behold, thy God reigneth! As the dews of Carmel, so shall the knowledge of God descend upon them!" ---D&C 128:19

The Rain is Crazy!

Hello friends and family! Everything here is still the same. We are serving and working hard. The highlight of the week was definitely yesterday when we got a referral from a member. We went to this investigator to try and follow up on him and the member that referred us to him came along. We sat down after introducing ourselves and started to teach a little bit about the Restoration. Pretty soon  this member just went for it and was explaining like every aspect of membership in the church. He just went off, saying stuff like "Yeah you'll get baptized and then the Holy Ghost, then if you pay your tithing and you pay your fast offering they'll interview you and you can receive the Aaronic Priesthood and then if you continue on you can receive the Melchizedek Priesthood and with the Melchizedek Priesthood you can give blessings of healing with oil." Luckily the guy we were teaching did not let all of that overwhelm him he was just silent and listening. At the end of the lesson we gave him a Book of Mormon and he said he would read it and that we could come back so we are pretty excited.
We also tried to go to Brownsberg today but because it has been raining so much the roads were covered in waist deep water. Not only was it waist deep but it was running water. It would have definitely carried away our cars. (All this rain is crazy!) So we turned around and asked the locals where we should go. We ended up finding a pretty cool dam and some other really cool views. Hopefully the pictures explain themselves. When we looked out on the river we saw a little houseboat so I sent a picture of that. It looked pretty cool. .
Sorry this is so short this week Most of the time was spent uploading photos. Hope you all are safe and well. Pray often!!
Love you guys!
