No Unhallowed Hand Can Stop this Work... Not Even Tornadoes! -January 24th, 2017

Hey everyone! 

We've had a crazy and amazing week here! 

We've had tornadoes all weekend down here in the Montgomery area. Thankfully none did too much damage and all our missionaries are safe! It's been funny because we are instructed that during the event of a tornado warning we are to get in the bath tub with our bike helmets on and a mattress covering us... We have three men living in our apartment and one bathroom. At least two of us would definitely be blown away in the event of a tornadoes if we attempted to squeeze in our five foot bathtub haha so it's a good thing we didn't have to do that! 

We saw many mighty miracles wrought in this land as we worked our hardest to proclaim the gospel to His children here! We've met some amazing people who we are very excited to work with. Including a part member couple named Jared and Lacy who love us! We were amazed that no missionaries had tried to visit them for years! He's been inactive for a long time but grew up in the church and wants us to teach his wife and answer all her questions. We're really excited to work with them! 

One of the main people that we've been working with and that I've been close to since i got to Prattville, named TJ, also ended up having his girlfriend move out due to situations and now is able to get baptized! The Lord has a plan for everyone and is leading this work! I'm so grateful to be a part of it!! He and his girlfriend, Mary, and the rest of their "family" are some of the most amazing people that I'm so grateful to know and be close to. They've both done so much for us and been the closest thing to family for me here in this area! 

Well, I hope y'all have a great week and I'll talk to you next Monday! Love you!
