The weather this week has been crazy. Its rained almost everyday and we have received four severe alerts and two extreme alerts for flash flooding and tornado's. Craziness!

church with B~. It was a good discussion, we went through the
scriptures and talked about the organization of Jesus Christ's church
and taught him the restoration. He is awesome. He is so honest and
