I love you soooooo much!!! I missed you this week. Our ward talked about emergency preparedness in church on Sunday and I just thought of you the whole time. Also we were teaching a recent convert and she had hurt her back so we were teaching her in her bedroom kneeling around her bed, and it reminded me of sitting around your bed talking to you…. Whenever I miss you I wear your sweatshirt to bed…
Tell Jonathan happy birthday! I love you all!
On Saturday there was a really bad accident here. There was a lady that for some reason stopped her car on the train tracks and got out. We don’t know all of the details but she got hit by a train and was killed. The train ended up stopped on the tracks for a few hours. It was so sad to think that her family might not have the knowledge that they will ever see her again.
Also yesterday we witnessed an accident literally in front of us. There is the scripture that talks about how we will have angels all around us to help us; this story definitely goes to support that. So, we decided to park the car and walk yesterday. As we were walking we came to a cross walk and stopped to wait for the cars to stop so that we could cross. There was an older man driving a minivan that stopped to let us cross. Without thinking about it, all three of us stayed on the sidewalk. We knew that he was stopping for us and that we could cross but none of us moved for a couple of seconds. I remember looking down to step off the curb and hearing someone skidding. I looked up in time to see a truck run into the back of the van. The van of course went forward into the cross walk. We must be doing something right. Luckily no one was injured but they all might be a little bit stiff today. By the time we walked away we had talked to the driver of the van about the gospel. It was definitely a faith building experience.
