The Tempest Was Raging

Hey there everyone! Wow, wasn't General Conference just awesome? I absolutely loved it. The coolest thing was that there was one talk especially for investigators. Sunday afternoon session by Elder Costa. During that talk we had 3 investigators listening! It was so great! 

We had a very interesting week. This week we were going to have a consejo <conference?> with all of the zone leaders this Thursday. Instead we had the biggest rainstorm we've had in 40 years in the city. Here in Comodoro they are not all that used to rain. The city is not prepared for it. This week it rained all that it usually rains in a year here in 2 days.

So we traveled up to Comodoro the night before, not knowing it was going to be so bad. When we got there we had to stay in the pension <apartment> all day. We couldn't even leave to buy food. In some parts of Comodoro it took cars away, flooded streets, and even dropped some buildings. (it took all of the dirt our from underneath of them.) So Thursday we were in the pension all day. Friday also. Except for the end of the day, President let us go play ping pong in the church. Then at last we were able to go home Saturday morning.

We got to conference a little late cause the roads were destroyed but we were able to watch it! It was awesome. It was really cool when the 70 who was the mission president in Washington talked about looking up and opening your mouth. So right after that session we took a picture doing the same. 

Here in the city were I live, Caleta Olivia, the rain came but not as bad. But the missionaries that live in Comodoro I think will probably be doing a lot of service in the next month. Life for us here will go on pretty normal. We are just going to open our mouths and look up!

Look to the sky and open your mouth!
