September 09, 2017 - The Week We Evacuated St. Augustine

First, I'll give you all an update with Irma. Sister McConnell and I have evacuated. We are staying in Middleburg, which is more inland than St. Augustine, with some other sisters. We evacuated yesterday and have been given instructions to stay indoors for safety. We will be here probably until Tuesday or Wednesday. The storm is to hit us on Monday morning. The church is so organized in it's procedures. Thankfully our mission president, President Lee, is so great and is taking excellent care of us by taking all precautions necessary to ensure our safety. After the storm hits we will be out and helping clean up. Since the storm is hitting on Monday we are having our PDay today! So, SURPRISE!

Let's move on from the storm. Morgan is doing amazing. She also evacuated but asked us how to find a church building where she is staying so she can go!! Her faith is incressing every day and I am SO blessed to be here while she comes unto Christ. It's incredible.

This week the elders had a baptism and the whole district was able to go. We were asked to sing the musical number and I was asked to speak on baptism. I was so happy to be there and see this darling girl follow her Savior more perfectly. Morgan also came to the baptism and it was so awesome! She loved it. She felt the spirit and was so happy to be able to experience the same thing in a few weeks!

We have been working with a cute family and we taught them repentence this last week. When I asked who had ever made a mistake they all raised their hands and said "Sister A we know YOUR mistake! You forgot to bring us the seed!!" (We had previously taught them about faith and I told them I had a mustard seed and forgot to bring it.) So yes, I was called to repentence by a bunch of kids. It was humbling to say the least.

Thank you so much for your prayers this week especially. I am very excited for this storm to hit so I can get out there and serve already!  I love you all!
