The flooding hasn't affected too much down here, except it flooded the oil refineries that our gas comes from and so there have been gas shortages and we need to be careful about that. My current area is not one we could get around in without a car. Sometimes there are really long lines we have to wait in, but luckily we have a few gas stations nearby that supply it. A ton of gas stations don't have it at all. So that's been an adventure. I don't know how it has affected other parts of the mission. There are lots of people working to help the people down there.

Letter #45 - Baptism!

August 14, 2017






Dear Friends and Family,

This past week was very eventful and very busy! Last Sunday, a man who
was not a member, but who has been married to a member for over a
decade, stood up and announced that he finally knew the Book of Mormon
was true and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was
Christ's church on the earth today. We already had a baptism set up
for Melissa on Saturday and they asked if he could be baptized then as
well. We had to move quick to go through all the lessons and set up
his interview, but it got done! He had been coming to church for years
and even had a calling. He paid tithing and was considered a dry
Mormon, but he is no longer! It was a wonderful event and there were
around 100 people at the baptism. It was awesome. That being said,
Melissa was also baptized and I have felt so blessed to be a part of
her journey. I have truly felt God's love for her and her family. They
have made such a big step forward in their lives and I know she will
be a blessing to her family as they already have been in her life.
Thanks for all of your love and support!

Love,

Sister Prue

Letter #44 - One Year!

July 24, 2017





Dear Friends and Family,

This past week I hit my year mark. I am so grateful that I have been
able to be out this long and look forward to completing the remaining
7 months. I love having six hours of church on Sunday, but being over
two wards has been a little overwhelming. The good news is that we
will have a baptism this next month. Her name is Melissa and she is a
pre-teen who started coming to church with her friend. She has faced a
lot of opposition from friends and family in her decision to be
baptized, but she is staying strong and is such a wonderful example to
me. Other than that we have been working to learn the area and meet
the members and teach the recent converts. Life has been good. Hope
you are doing well!

Love,

Sister Prue
