“Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.” Lord Of The Rings, J.R.R. Tolkein

So...big oops. When I started to do this week's post I realized I forgot to post the blog for last week! Sorry, here it is!

As for the work here in Chestermere, things are going pretty decently well. This week we are having significant improvement. We have an investigator now, we're teaching a few less-actives that are really coming along, and we're walking LOADS. On Saturday my fitbit said I walked 20,000 steps.... Oi. But hey! Here's a funny story for this week!

So Elder Shah and I were walking back from our dinner yesterday evening. Thunder clouds were threatening in the distance, but we were pretty sure that we could make it home before it hit because it looked super far away. We had been walking for around 20 minutes when all of a sudden, hail began to fall. Elder Shah and I ran for cover next to a utility hut that was next to a park. It was starting to really come down hard and we were carrying a bag of left-overs that Sister Maund had given us. We had to do something because things were getting pretty rough. The hail was getting bigger. Elder Shah peeked around the corner of the shed that we were taking cover next to, and he couldn't see any type of shelter. Except for one thing: Two Port-a-potties in the parking lot of the lake parking. SALVATION! Neither of us were wearing jackets and we were already getting soaked, so we ran for it. It was probably around 100 yards to the port-a-potties. So we booked it as fast as we could, all the while getting pelted by hail stones. It was pretty intense! I almost tripped a bunch of times. But we took shelter in the port-a-potties until the storm started to slow down. Then we just walked home in the rain. :) It was good times! Our left-overs remained intact!

Anyway, make this week a good one! I love you!
