Waterfalls and Sloths? Ok - really just rain storms and a stuffed sloth ;)


This week was another great week here in the TSAM. The highlight of
the week was when we got a call from a member in another part of San
Antonio. She met a woman and her son who were interested in meeting
with us. We went by the next day and met Pam. Pam is such a nice and
caring lady. She cares for people who have disabilities and is one of
the most genuinely kind and caring people I have ever met. We were
able to give her a Book of Mormon and will be going back soon!

Last night we had a huge thunderstorm. I slept through most of it, butmy companion woke up and said the streets were completely flooded. Ithaca stopped raining and isn't as flooded anymore so don't worry.

We had service this week at the San Antonio Food Bank. There were a lot of people there. We sorted through the food and threw out the bad stuff. They were playing music really loud and it was really distracting. There was a bag of flour that wasn't closed that made a big mess.

We also had Women's Conference this Saturday ( it is a meeting where
the general authorities of the church speak specifically to the Women
of the church). It was so great to hear them speak. We had a couple
investigators there and they really enjoyed the messages and songs
that were shared. I really enjoyed Sister Bingham's talk about how we
should have charity, the pure love of Christ. It reminds me of one the
talks we had in Church yesterday. He spoke about how we live in
practice mode and not at performance level. He urged us to realize
that everyone, including ourselves, make mistakes so we shouldn't
judge others.

I am so excited for General Conference this weekend! I know that it
will be great and that we can make it more meaningful as we prepare
ahead of time and go with a question or goal in mind.

Have a great week!

We got wet again this week. It started dumping and we were biking over
to dinner. I think this was the most wet I have been. We might as well
have been standing underneath a waterfall.

Sister R's pet sloth likes to hide;)
