"Heavenly Father hears your prayers, loves you, and He knows your name."
Today we had Weekly Planning in the morning because we had the conference yesterday, and we had lunch, and then reorganized all our area book because the elderes had given us a whole bunch of old records of the area from the past 4 years or so. So we went through, sorting everything by location and calling everyone to see if we could visit them or if they existed and if the phone number was right. So we had some success with that, and we'll be working with all the records this week trying to find people. Lots of work to do!
|Tropical Storm Earl - we were all ok, just received TONS of rain!!|

But apparently there's people that think that when someone dies, we keep their body in a classroom in the church. They don't know why or how, just that we do that, apparently. And we definitely don't do that. Sometimes we have a service in the church where the body is present, but then the family goes to the cemetery to have the funeral and burial. Sometimes people think really weird things.
