Tornados! And Chris Is getting Baptized!!!


CHRIS IS GETTING BAPTIZED!!!!!! Man it makes me so happy every time I think about it. He called us on Saturday night and told us the good news. I am not exaggerating when I say I lost my voice from shouting joyous praises to the heavens. Elder Boyer and I are going to the baptism on Saturday and I can't wait. Sister Cooksey is going to make my favorite dish for me too, lemon pepper fried chicken, a southern delicacy.

But of course since there is opposition in all things the devil had to send forth mighty winds, yea his shafts in the whirlwind, and all his hail and mighty storms! Man that tornado was crazy. It was on the ground forever. We were eating dinner at a members home last night when we got a call from President Petersen saying we needed to get everyone in our zone in and safe asap. So we were calling everyone like crazy and making sure they were in a safe place. The only people we could never get a hold of were the Pinnacle Mountain Sisters who were the closest to the tornando! We freaked out but they ended up making it. It was pretty crazy. The alarms went off forever. President said that we will probably go help clean up on wednesday or thursday.

We had some miracles happen this past week in our zone. So at the beginning of the week it looked like we were going to reach our monthly goal easy, then crap hit the fan and a lot of our baptism fell through. So it looked like we were going to be 2 short of our goal, we fasted and prayed so dang hard! To make a long story short we are going to reach our goal this month after a baptism on Tuesday! I'm pumped!

Carsha is still doing good! The ward loves her. In gospel principles this past week we were learning about the 3 kingdoms of glory and we did a demo where Carsha was the judge and she had to judge people and where they were going to go. She sent everyone to hell. ha ha It was funny! She is really awesome though and she will be getting baptized soon! She is almost there. Robert is doing great too! 
Let me just leave with my testimony that the power of the Book of Mormon can help us overcome addictions. I have seen that in these past couple of weeks. I love the Book of Mormon! It is a pure vessel of the spirit and can bring comfort and solace to every human heart. I know that it is the word of God and testifies and Jesus is our Savior! Thanks for all your support family!
