you were able to feel that momma! I took some good notes and wrote some things down on how I can do better in life from general conference!
This week was weird but it was good I guess! We've been on lockdown since Friday night because of the insane amount of rain out here. Streets are flooded everywhere, businesses are totally closed and all the highways are off limits right now. We even saw a video on the news channel where a car was floating because the water was so high. The water made a whirlpool because it was draining somewhere and the car got sucked down by it! It's pretty crazy in Columbia and Charleston. Here it's not as bad. The roads are flooded on the sides but you can still drive on them. The whole mission has been on lockdown this whole time though.
The Blythewood Elders and Sisters had to stay up here last night because it was too dangerous to get a ride home. The Elders stayed in our cabin with us and the other Ridgeway Elders, and the Sisters stayed at a member's house. Luckily we bought groceries last Monday and I spent almost all of my money on food for
some reason and it turned out to be a good choice so that a lot of us could eat! Hahaha. The members have been great at checking up on us too. They have been awesome. It's been pretty weird. We've done a lot of talking and reading hahahaha. And watching conference. We live half a mile away from the church so we didn't miss any conference.
I hope we're going to be busy with service! We got a call already from Bro. Marion and he needs help putting new carpet in his basement tomorrow because it flooded.
Jayden came to a session at the church too! We have been finishing up lesson 4 with him and he will most likely be baptized in 2 weeks!!! I'm way excited for this kid. He is really mature and awesome.
So that was my week for the most part. Not much got done because of the natural disasters out here. But we had fun and saw some pretty abnormal things! Hahaha

Here are some pictures Elder Pace sent his mom. These were not taken by him, but give you a good idea of the extent of the flooding:
