Week 53- Glenda Week

What a week!! Holy moly haha i feel like I have a ton to update and a little time to do it! but I will try my best.

So we got hit by a typhoon.... Glenda is the name. It hit on Tuesday night. We got word on Monday night and we had to be moved to the church on Tues. So tuesday morning we went to the church and the weather was actually really really good. We were just joking around and thinking we would be fine. So we brought some food and few things thinking we would be back home by the afternoon.  and went to the church! So from 8 in the morn till bout 5 all seemed well. By this time is slowly sunk in that we would be sleeping at the church and it was too late to go to the house to grab things we actually needed to sleep at the church. haha this led to the worst sleep ever. but the storm hit around 6. and it lasted until bout midnight. It was crazy! the church was shaking at one point haha but we made it!

it was all well.. Then the next morning we went out and checked out the damage. Man it was bad.... Trees everywhere and power lines down. So we have been without power for about a week. But still doing ok! We have been curfewed too since there is no power so one night we had a campfire and roasted hot dogs haha things to do when you are bored!

This week has been one of the most humbling weeks ever. We have just been out helping people with their houses and things.. Haven't had a ton of work, just been
trying to help people with all the trees that have fallen and parts of their houses destroyed. Some people have even lost there house. So it has been crazy. But one of the best things to see how quick the people have worked things out. The next morning people were already outside hacking away at trees and trying to clean everything up. So it has been a blessing in disguise!

In the process of cleaning and all that jazz i lost our cellphone! That sucked... I feel like a pro tree chopper and nights have gotten boring with the curfew. But all is well! i feel so blessed to be here and to help the people out. To see how people have been has just hit home to me. Helped me realize the most important things in life. Family and this gospel.. That is what life is about. So tell your fam members you love them. and don't forget we are just one big happy family. I know Heavenly Father loves us. I know he cares and I know he is waiting for us. Don't give up my friends. Even when you feel like there is no light. Sometimes you need to walk in darkness. Trust him. I love you all! i leave you with a scripture 3 Nephi 9:14. Until next time family

Sorry no pics! this comp shop is struggling.. Next week!
