So really quickly, this weekend we received Hurricane Harvey! The last couple days we've been in the apartment just hanging out. I got super bored and found a gingerbread house making kit so I'll send a pic of that lol. We have had a little bit of flooding but nothing too bad in our area. We are mostly concerned for the people farther down south so be praying for them! We were informed during the week last week that we would receive a hurricane so we did some preparation. In all the stores there is no bread or water and everything is pretty bare. All the gas stations were out of gas as well. It's been pretty crazy haha but we are all safe and everything's good. We have been doing check ups 2-3 times during the day on every companionship in the zone and getting on conference calls with president 2-3 times a day to make sure everybody is good. Some companionships have been evacuated from their apartment but everybody is safe and President is keeping track of everyone. Stake conference was supposed to be this weekend but it was cancelled and so were all church meetings in the area. We are excited for the opportunity to help lots of people out from the floods and everything that has been going on.
Okay, so, at the beginning of the week before the hurricane hit we were able to see some sweet miracles! We found a couple new investigators from English class and they are so cool! They have been coming to English class for a little while and we were finally able to sit down and talk and teach them. We call ourselves "La Banda" or the squad in English haha. We are excited to keep working with them and get them to church when the weather conditions allow us to.
We were also able to get in with a potential that we find a little while ago. They are the Gonzalez family. The dad works with a return missionary and has heard a little bit about it. We talked to them about the Book of Mormon and even read a little bit while we were gone! They enjoyed it and we are excited to continue working with them.
Thank you everyone for all your prays to the people here in Houston and in all of south Texas. Some people have really been devastated from this hurricane so please keep them in your prayers! I hope y'all are doing good and had a good week. I will talk to y'all soon!
