Caught in the rain: The Story of my Life

Hello everyone!
Usually my emails are a little more thought out than this one will be,
so sorry in advance if it's a bit scattered!
Things are going well for us in Sittingbourne. It's much warmer now
although we occasionally still need to wear tights. I'm learning how
to deal with the humidity, which is a new experience for me, coming
from desert Utah!

Last week I wrote about our friend Ryan, but unfortunately he gave us
a fake address! We tracked the whole street with no avail. We finally
discovered that number 49 simply did not exist. Hopefully we will see
him again!

Last Thursday we went out finding, but there were dark clouds that
threatened to drench us with rain. But acting in faith we decided to
go finding anyways! The first person we stopped was a man named Craig.
I honestly can't remember too much of what was said, but he was
interested in hearing our message! When we were talking to him it
started to rain slightly, and as we said a prayer with him, it started
to pour! I loved how Heavenly Father gave us just enough time to find
the one person we needed to find that day. Of course we still got
absolutely soaked because we got caught in the rain with no coat or
umbrella. When we asked a woman where we could buy an umbrella, she
warned me that that was not a good idea because it was too dangerous
to be using an umbrella when there is lightning, and it was dangerous
enough that I was daring to wear a necklace, and that I was certainly
going to be struck with lightning. Fortunately a member saved us from
that possible tragedy by giving us a lift to our dinner appointment!

On Saturday we got to help our dear friends, Suzanne and George with a
service project. George is a less active member and his partner
Suzanne is investigating, but currently her health prevents her from
coming to church. I love them so much! We had so much fun painting
their room! There is truly so much joy in service.

I love you all and I hope you have a great week!
The church is true, the book is blue, and we go out two by two!
