I slept through the earthquake.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the emails this week.

Sounds like things are going well at home. Mom and Dad sounds like the yard is going to look great. Are you doing the home tour this year? Hopefully you'll get to relax down there this summer and not just work all the time. Wow, Ab sounds like you are in high demand, talking and singing in sacrament speaking at seminary graduation that's really cool. Sounds like you are really busy. Have you had your madrigals concert yet? What are all you girls doing for the summer? Are you working? Have you started working at the front desk at the club rach or teaching tennis? PS-what is a crew regatta?

So this week has been pretty crazy. I don't know if you heard but there was an earthquake in the north west tip of Puerto Rico in a place called Moca. It was about 1:00 am in the morning and I didn't feel a thing even though it was about 5.8 on the riechter scale (spelled right?). Sunday morning my companion said did you feel that shaking last night and I was like what? I have no idea what you are talking about. But then we got to church and everyone was talking about it. As far as I know no one in our area had anything damaged they just felt the shaking, closet doors and dishes in the cupboard rattling etc. Pretty crazy I slept right through it. I've never thought of myself as much of a deep sleeper. No worries though everything is fine here. Pretty crazy though.

Other than that we have been just doing the same old thing. We found have a new investigator named Isabela who is amazing. She doesn't really have a religion and she has the cutest little family. She and her husband are awesome. We testified of the family and there was a really special spirit there. She doesn't really know much about the Bible at all but I know that she felt something different. When we asked her what interested her about the message she said very quietly that she just wanted something to believe in. It's so true there are so many people out there that just need something to believe in especially when life can be so hard. We are really excited to go back and teach her, there was really something special about her and her family.

So today we experienced probably the biggest downpour I have seen since being here in Puerto Rico. I mean this was the aguacero of all aguaceros. We happened to not bring our umbrellas and had to run from the doctor's office to our car which was parked on the other side of this huge parking lot. The rain wasn't letting up so we just took a run for it. Here were these two american girls in skirts just booking it as fast as they could down the flooded sidewalk and across a parking lot by the time we got to our car we were completely soaked, mascara running down our face and not a dry spot on our clothes, it looked like we had just jumped in a pool. We couldn't stop laughing for the longest time. So any of you planning a trip to Puerto Rico anytime soon remember to bring an umbrella even when it looks sunny in the morning.

Love you all!
Have a great week.
