Four Man Carry

For those of you happy followers who went to Girl's Camp back in the day, you theoretically know how four people can carry one injured person comfortably for miles until you reach safety.

I do not remember how to do this... but theoretically I know because I did graduate girls camp. And going on week two without the senior couple in Brewton... I feel like Sister Lloyd and I and the Elders are four man carrying this entire city... Well, God does know that I like to feel useful. Currently, between Sister Lloyd and I, we hold the callings of Church Setter-uppers, Group Pianist, Group Chorister, yesterday's speakers in Sacrament, Youth Sunday School Teacher, and Primary Worker. And the Elders run the Sacrament, teach Elders Quorum, provide the water for our portable fountain, and take down church at the end.

We need a senior couple. For reals.

Bless this little group. We only need to make it 3 more days and then the Bowlers will get here and hopefully straighten things out a little bit. It's amazing the difference the presence of a couple full grown adults can do in a place like this!

The part-member families we work with (the only 2 in the city haha), are both doing a little better than they have been. Babies have been born; sisters, aunts, and third cousins, have all been housed somewhere other than with these families; maybe soon both of the mothers with their eternal migraines will get some relief.

We also found a new investigator from an old potential sheet in the area book. She goes to church across the street from her house and loves all the hooting and hollering they do there. She said it was like a higher level of spirit or something like that. So we thought she wasn't really interested, but she asked us for something to read from, so we gave her a book of Mormon and she was fairly interested in that. She said we can come back and talk more about it with her. Hooray. I will be teaching her with one of the Sister Trainers tomorrow!

That's about all the excitement of this week. It's hot as heck. And humid. SURPRISE SURPRISE! And guess what, you can be in a cool building, walk outside for less than a minute to get something out of the car, and walk back inside to find that the building has become freezing due to all the water you collected on your skin during your little adventure outside.
