Our apt stinketh

Howdy and iakwe yall!!
This week was a good one, started off way wack though. So we have been getting tons of rain in Oklahoma lately and our apt was leaking sooo much through the ceiling. One day we woke up and our ceiling was on the Floor hah. There was a huge 6 foot hole and now the whole ceiling has fallen down pretty much. So now our apt "stinketh." Elder Huang and I are always quoting scriptures like that, it's so funny to us ha. Also, the District sang Elder Huang and I a song for our year marks hah it was so cute of them. Our district is the goat. Also one of our new friends gave us these huge knives! He calls it a "rambo knife." We have been having so much fun with it! Also, he's trying to get married and baptized and so that's way cooler than the knife haha! We have been staying busy with lessons! We have been really blessed in that way. Our friend Caston is on date to be baptized on September 5th. We baptized his wife about 8 months ago, they're the coolest family. But despite all these awesome things, I have never heard him pray. I've taught him for like 10 months and have never heard him pray. He prays by himself, he's just sooo shy. But we had the sacrament with his wife and he was there to feel the spirit of it. We all went on to bear our testimonies and the spirit was thick in that room. We asked him to say the closing prayer, and he was so happy to do it! He offered such a simple, heartfelt prayer and it was so awesome. I love that family. I am for sure coming back when they get sealed! But atonement is real and changes us for the better!! It's almost like the church is true or something??? Thanks for all the love and support!!

Iakwe kom!
