How are you all doing? Enjoying the great summer weather? I hope so! Because we are one week away from full-on WINTER here. Right now we´re experiencing Utah-weather where it´s suuuuuuper hot in the afternoon and then life-threateningly cold as soon as the sunsets. I guess Utah weather isn´t very unique to just Utah…
So the other day we had this CRAZY wind storm. It started off as a light breeze in the afternoon, but by evening it was just blowing like nothing else. And the weird thing is that the wind was super warm, too, which is incredibly unusual because it is WINTER. So there we were, being attacked by this weird warm wind and all the dirt it carried with it when I decided to take out my camera and snap a video of this weird weather (because why not?). Then, just a few minutes after I´ve started filming, I catch on video the moment we almost died (more or less). You see, the wind was SUPER STRONG, and we were walking right under this tin-balcony thing when the wind roared and TORE OFF THE TIN ROOF and then this tin roof LANDED RIGHT IN FRONT US!
I might have screamed a little bit.
Anyway we´re actually totally okay but if we had been standing just a few feet closer….pucha. So we have some little things to be grateful for this week!
We committed two perople to a baptism date this week and I´m super hopeful for them. They´re both single women and when we invited them to be baptized, the spirit was so strong and they both expressed to us their desire to change. I´m especially hopeful for Anarosa. She was so sincere with us about how she´s already been hinting towards her family that she would like to attend our church and be baptized. She was very hesitant towards accepting a baptism date, but the spirit was so strong as we taught that I felt prompted to share a scripture with her, and that scripture, along with our testimonies, helped resolve her fears and she accepted a baptism date. Now we need to get her to attend church with us! haha
Well, I love you all and I hope you´re doing great. I´m grateful for all your support from far away.
