MS 13

This is Lindsey and I wasn't sure if Colin would send Mom this photo, so I decided to post it for everyone to enjoy!

Colin said that this week was pretty boring because, as a result of heavy gang activity, he and his companion had to stay at home for safety reasons.  Colin, however, being the epic schmoozer that he is, managed to get an unusual photograph with his local MS13 (the internationally notorious El Salvadorian gang) leader.  Not sure how or why, but here it is:

Frankly, I'm not too surprised :)

Hurricane season opens

Thanks for your prayers, and everything!

We are all safe and sound. Saturday I was super drenched all day, and then at about 6 we met up with some other elders that told us the President had called and said that we should go home so as not to get sick. The President also said that we had to have our 72 hour kits ready by Monday. We don't know if he just said that, or if someone from the First Presidency told him to tell us, it doesn't matter- so that night I told my comp we are buying food now! So we went to the Super Selectors, that is the Von's here, and we stocked up on beans and ramen noodles, spam, water, granola bars, and Snickers. We are ready for Armageddon. Or another hurricane, hahaha.

This week was better. We taught a ton and found a ton, but still no success with them going to church, so that is something that I personally am never going to let happen again. I will always have at least one person at church, this is the second week that we haven't brought anyone to church and I was MAD. I know it was raining, but that was no excuse for us, I need to stop being weak and just tell my comp "hey, we've got to do it" and then do it!
