Happy Rainy Monday!

"The weather this week has been insane. It has been raining everyday since Thursday. When it rains here, it pours. AUtah sprinkle is a heavy humidity here. A Utah rain is a WV sprinkle. A Utah pour is a WV rain, and when it floods in Utah, it pours here and usually it's the pouring kind of rain. I always think of the Wizard of Oz when it rains here. The wind goes insane, the clouds get super dark and super thick, and the thunder and lightning go crazy. The lightning gets super close, since the clouds settle in between the hills, and so the thunder gets really loud at times. It rains for hours at a time. They say it rains everyday all the time in Seattle- they haven't been to WV... My companion and I still question ourselves - Where does all that water GO?! It rains, and it rains, and it rains. (♪ and the rain rain rain came down down down...) As a matter of fact, it's raining, er, excuse me, POURING here right now. When you drive, the windshield wipers are on full blast, and it's still very difficult to see. One foot out of the car, and you've fallen into a pool. It's pretty great (: But the rain makes everything SO GREEN here! We drive a lot of backroads, and you can't see anything but trees. It's so beautiful! I am SO thrilled that the magnolias are coming out. The buds are on the trees, and they're getting ready to bloom. When the humidity wave hits in a couple weeks, they'll be in full bloom, and I am SO excited"

"We picked up a new investigator. She's about 50, and she is SO ELECT. She hates her church, how they "vote" everyone into their positions. She hates that she doesn't know where her tithing money goes, and how they do tithing at her church. She LOVES the BofM, and she says that every time she reads, she feels God never tells her that it is wrong. She has read the intro 4 TIMES. We can't wait to see her testimony of the Gospel and the BofM grow and flourish into a beautiful lamp that will guide her friends and family to the gospel as well."

As you can tell, the rain hasn't dampened her spirit.
