Hurricane Matthew Hits NC!

This week was pretty crazy! I am done with my 2nd transfer and also done with training. My companion Elder Garrick is getting transferred to Raleigh.. Elder Garrick and I have become such good friends and its sad to see him leave... I find out who my next companion is on Tuesday!

Monday our Mission President is a huge tennis fan and he holds a tennis tournament every year and its called the "Dennis Open" Well on Monday I went to the Dennis Open and it was awesome! President James played tennis for Utah State and has never lost to a missionary in a match before... well I had to change that:) It was so awesome to get back on the court and play tennis with other Elders and my mission president.

Tuesday I went on exchanges for the day because my companion had to go to some leadership meetings. It was pretty fun to catch up with some elders I came out with! Wednesday we had Zone Conference and it could have been the best Zone Conference ever. We went to this guys farm and had normal meetings but after we played games with 4 different zones! It was sooooo much fun! That was my first Zone Conference and it will probably be the best Zone Conference I ever go to my whole mission!! Friday was also fun we got to do service on this thrift shop and they wanted us to paint shelves and tables! For service it was pretty fun... I am not the best painter in the world but I had a good time!

Saturday.. well Hurricane Matthew hit... I have never ever seen so much rain in my entire life. It was crazy!! It down poured ALL DAY LONG. Everyone's apartment was flooding and basically everyone in our ward power got knocked out! Luckily we were all safe! It is scary that we got the worst part of the Hurricane. Keep the people who really got the worst of the Hurricane in your prayers. Sunday our church got cancelled because its power got knocked out! It was weird not having church.. I hope everyone has a good week and I will send pictures next week of my new companion! I find out who my new companion will be on Tuesday!
