Opportunities to Serve

Hey family,
Sounds like you all had an awesome 4th of July.   Its a bummer sometimes being here in Mexico when it's an American holiday because nobody does anything!!  My companion and I didn't do anything yesterday.
We're party poopers!  We were thinking of what we could do but we didn't come to any conclusions so we just went to bed cause we were exhausted! But throughout the day we were singing the Star Spangled Banner.  I truly am grateful for our country . . . . and Mexico has really helped me see how much I LOVE my country...haha!
This last week was crazy with Hurricane Alex.  On Thursday we couldn't even leave the house unless we had appointments set. We had alot of opportunities though to give service.  Just walking down the street you could find many people in need.  We helped alot of people bucket water out of their house.  Many houses were flooded.  I believe we are going to see alot of people humbled and ready to hear the gospel this week haha!   For the first few hours when the hurricane hit my companion and I were like, "man this is awesome!" Then after about 2 hours we were miserable, walking in rivers of water haha! and nobody wanted to let us in their houses because we were soaken wet.  But we really got a special chance to experience a little bit of what Jesus Christ went through. It was a great opportunity and I'm so grateful for it.  Sorry, I' don't have many crazy stories, but that's how my week went.  I've gotta go but I hope you all have a great week and hope you all know I am always thinking of you and praying for you.
Oh mom, is there any way in the next package you send me to send printed photos from the fam reunion, the 4th and whatever other pictures you want?  I would love that. . . and a few more of Davids cds?but there is no rush... just whenever.... thanks mom, love you.
