Worst Drought in History- Miracles abound

LOVE my mission President and his Wife. President and Sister Alba

This week I got flooded with mail!! I LOVE mail!! Mail is a missionary's best friend! i will do my very best to respond to all of your letters in what little time I have today, but I cant guarantee they will all get responded to by today.

Sorry if I go kind of cap lock crazy, because I am SO excited, and SO happy! Aside from the part of my week when random men from different parts of the world confessed their undying love for me over Facebook (It is getting pretty old), this week has been filled with pure joy!
Just one of the many examples of the undying love and affection I receive on facebook.

ELDER PRINCE IS HERE!!! I haven't seen him yet though, and it's killing me!!! Missionaries keep telling me there is an Elder from my home town in Canada named Elder Prince who just got to the mission! I am beyond excited to see him, but I have no idea when that will happen.

I GET TO GO TO THE SACRAMENTO TEMPLE THIS MONTH!! I am SOOO excited! I can't wait to do some more work for my ancestors. Mom, most of the names that got sent to me a few months ago didn't have their initiatories done, and as missionaries we only get to do the endowments. Is there any way that you might be able to do a session for them sometime this month before the 20th? If so that would be AWESOME!

I got a package from Tanisha (my sister) this week full of all sorts of fun stuff. All of the missionaries want pictures with the shirt that says"Finish the Mission -Nike." Sister Eisert thought for sure you had sent me an ugly sweater by the feeling of the package. I told her all about your hideous sweaters that you love, and how you probably sent me one just to bug me. I laughed so hard when I found the pens that had adventure time all over them. She knows how much I hate that dumb cartoon. I especially loved the pile of unsent letters that took about 6 months to finally get to me! Haha!

Sister Eisert and Sister Beach may or may not write a letter to the family sometime. They always talk about how badly they want to meet you because of all the things I tell about you.

I HAVE MORE MUSIC!!! I was this close ---->    |______|      to throwing my 1 good CD out the window, when it was saved by a package of new CD's from the Muirheads! It was the best surprise ever! My companions and I screamed and jumped for joy at the news of being able to listen to different music. "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho" is only so great until the 164th time listening to it...

Sister's come in all sizes!!

So I have a little request... If there is no way for it to happen then I completely understand. For the past few years I have done the Valentines Day service project making valentines for all of the elderly, widowed, and people going through challenging times and may need to feel some love in different wards of the stake. If there is any way that someone could take that little project under their wing, it would make my February! I will do my best to see if I can do it here in my ward as well.

MIRACLE!!!! So California is in the worst drought it has ever been in since California ever started keeping records. The Prophet and first presidency asked all of the members to fast and pray for rain on Sunday (yesterday). We invited a bunch of our investigators to join with us in the fast for rain. one of our investigators who is SOOO close to getting baptized joined with us in the fast and came to fast and testimony meeting. That morning we checked the weather forecast and it said there should be rain on Thursday. We decided to bring our rain jackets and umbrellas "just in case" there was a sudden change in weather. Sacrament meeting happened, incredible testimonies were born, our investigator got to listen to members share conversion story after conversion story over the pulpit about all the exact things she needed to hear, and finally we walked out of the chapel to see rain!!! It rained and rained all day Sunday!!!! I know that Heavenly Father hears prayers!

I need to go, but I love you all!

Sister Eisert's sister is having a baby. We sent these pictures home to her to show what we think she is having.
