A lot has happened this week. Mostly, a lot happened this past weekend! Yesterday we had our ward fast for The Rescue. This ward has apparently been praying for missionaries to help them since long before Sister Bennion and I got here. They've had two elders in the ward for a long time, and it just wasn't enough to cover the 60 mile North-South boundary. (That's no joke, 60 miles long, and probably 30 wide makes up our ward). So after they all prayed for more they got us. Then they kept praying and along came the Habels. Then as of this last transfer, the DeFuniak Elders became a trio and thus we have SEVEN full time missionaries for this little backwoods ward.
So after the fast yesterday, we all went to the highest point in Florida, Lakewood Park, 324 feet elevation (it's in DeFuniak!!) and had a dedicatory prayer over the area. It was pretty neat. This sweet little ward. They deserve good missionary work. We are doing our best.
I don't think I'll have time to send pictures home this week. :( But I will eventually get y'all pics of the Lakewood Park sign and the members of our ward all posed around it. Also, you all see Howell's ALF... ask my parents about that one if you must know hehe. Basically, the set for DeFuniak Death Trap, the horror movie. Yep. If that existed. That's where it would happen lol.
I love y'all and talk to ya soon!
