It's Always Pouring Buckets

Alma 26:36-37
36 Now if this is boasting, even so will I boast; for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation, and my redemption from everlasting wo. Yea, blessed is the name of my God, who has been mindful of this people, who are a branch of the tree of Israel, and has been lost from its body in a strange land; yea, I say, blessed be the name of my God, who has been mindful of us, wanderers in a strange land.
 37 Now my brethren, we see that God is mindful of every people, whatsoever land they may be in; yea, he numbereth his people, and his bowels of mercy are over all the earth. Now this is my joy, and my great thanksgiving; yea, and I will give thanks unto my God forever. Amen
The Lord is truly mindful of me and my situation and being in such a "strange land"

Other Things:
not super funny, but we totally got lost trying to go to a dinner appointment with Sister Turnball, and just ended up going home to get food, because it was pouring buckets, not before we got out and explored a near by forest, and got stung by some strange plant, and took pictures of course! My driving is getting better....
People thought we were nuns again....ha..oh sir we aren't training to be nuns, and a drunk man tried to kiss me...what a week!

Thank you again for all you do! Hope you have a great week!
