As most of you have heard, there was a hurricane! But, no worries, I am doing fine! The rain started on Friday, but we were still able to go out and visit people. The good news was that everyone was home! So we got to go visit some people we hadn't been able to get in with. On Saturday it was still raining, but it wasn't really flooding yet. So we were able to leave our apartments if we had a set appointment. (Sadly all of our set appointments cancelled on us because people didn't want us to be out.) Later in the day it got a little bit better, so we were able to go out in a 15 minute radius around our apartments. (We knew we were about to get trapped for several days, so we went to see what fast food we could get. The only places open were KFC and Taco Bell because they don't care about their employees' lives. So we had some KFC before we were stuck eating all of our apartment food!) But, then there were some tornadoes so we had to go back. Then it started raining harder and flooding, so we have been stuck in our apartment ever since! And the rain is still going, so it looks like we will be here a few more days. But, we are safe! We are on the third floor, and we have plenty of food and water.

Please pray for the temple too! The water is up to the fountain out front, and we don't want the temple to flood or get damaged!
The weather kind of prevented us from going out and finding a ton of new people to teach, but we did start teaching this awesome lady named Flor! She is excited to start reading the Book of Mormon.
I don't know if any of you remember Kevin from back in my training, but he got baptized! It is a miracle! When my trainer (Hna Sheirbon) was back here visiting a few months ago she went up to visit Kevin and his brother Erick. She introduced them to the missionaries currently serving up there, and they started teaching him again. I am so happy for him!
Well, that's about it for now. I know Heavenly Father is protecting us!
