Wow that's crazy with the floods in Texas! That's awesome that Brennan was able to save people. I love that picture of the temple and what a miracle that is wasn't damaged. The Church is true.
Well we are having the opposite weather conditions here in the Philippines. It is really hot here. Currently we have 4 missionaries in the hospital due to the hot weather. But actually it has been a spiritual experience for me. I don't know how often you pray for me because everyday when we got to work in the blistering sun I don't feel the heat...I can't explain it. I know it's hot outside because I can see it and I know the temperature but it doesn't feel hot for me. It's almost like there's some kind of shield around me that the heat doesn't bother me or affect the work. I don't know about you but that's a miracle to Elder Strader. Just a little reminder that the Lord's hand is in this work. A tender mercy indeed.
Other then that things are going really well. I'm having fun with Elder G and we've had some funny times. Yesterday we found a family compound and found some kids playing in the street. When they saw two Americans they asked us why we there (in the Philippines). I then replied, "We here to tell all people to repent or this city will be destroyed." The fear on those kids faces were priceless. Okay maybe that isn't truly doctrine but it worked.
Anyway, I love you guys. I'll Skype ya'll on Mothers Day! Please send me dad's Skype account again haha...The Church is true!
