Hello everyone! So we are in the midst of a hurricane watch right now! Woo! We were instructed to get lots of water and non perishable food and then hang out in our apt because there is a crazy storm coming! Houston can't catch a break! We were at the store this morning and it was PACKED. People were stocking up on what ever they could get their hands on. This is why we have food storage! So when natural disasters come we don't have to be all panicky! I couldn't believe it. The store was actually running out of food. It was crazy! Anyway, we are all prepared! Now we are just watching and waiting! As of right now, it doesn't even look bad out! Just a little cloudy! It is supposed to hit at 7 tonight so I guess I will let you know what happens! So this past week has been awesome! We have a baptism coming up! His name is Kevin! And he is actually Litzi's cousin! He is going to be baptized this Saturday and we are so excited!!!!!! This week we had a couple of really cool experiences. We have started teaching this really special family. They have a little son (hes 6) with terminal cancer. He is down to his last few weeks and he just stays on the couch while the family cares for him. We had an opportunity to sit with all of them this week and teach them the plan of salvation! It was such a special experience. The spirit was so strong as we taught of how families can be together forever. It was probably one of the most special experiences I have had on my mission! We also have this other little family we are teaching. They have been investigating for a long time and haven't really been keeping commitments. For the longest time we haven't been able to decide if we should continue seeing them or not. We decided to have a "do or die" lesson with them. We went in and talked about waiting on the road to Damascus and how we need to act now on our faith! (There is a really good Mormon message if y'all have time to watch it. It's called.. Waiting on the road to Damascus) They took our lesson really well. When we were done, both me and Hermana rupp both had the strongest impression that we can't give up on them yet and we need to keep teaching them. And then low and behold they came to church yesterday for the first time in 4 months! Hopefully they will start to progress towards baptism!!!! In other news, I learned how to make tamales this week! This sweet Hermana in our ward was put in charge of making tamales for the ward party we had on Saturday. She asked if we could help her for a bit, so we did! It was so fun!!!! The ward party was crazy. Hispanic wards go hard when it comes to party's. They are filled with food and everyone is dancing and they usually last until about 10 or 11. We have to go home at 9 so we missed all the craziness this time. We had a few investigators come and they loved it! Also.. This is a little off topic.. But none of the Hispanics use utensils when they eat. It's all hands! Or tortillas. They make fun of us because we are used to always eating with a fork or a knife. Some of the members have a special set of utensils that they only use when we are over! It is so funny! I am so bad at eating with my hands! It is hard not to make a mess! Haha! Well I hope y'all have a great week! Look for missionary experiences every single day! I love ya! Hermana C.
