I think I have caught up on all of the pictures that I needed to send for the past few weeks. So happy that we finally came to the Trail Center to email so we could send pictures! Sounds like the week was SO good and that you all did an awesome job hiking the Grand Canyon! We had a really good week too. The Lord is just blessing our area so much and I am so grateful that I get to be able to witness all of the miracles that have been happening. We had THE most eventful (and I mean literally event-full) weekend. It was a lot of fun, but it also just wiped me OUT.We started on Saturday morning with my alarm clock going off at 340 so we could be out the door by 440 to serve food at a pancake breakfast in downtown Omaha. We were doing it for the Kiwanis club that Dr. Fischer and Elder Cleverly are in together, and Sister Harris, Sister Whittaker, Sister Kirby, and I were on the 5 am shift. It was POURING rain, so we were really grateful that there was a big tent covering us. There is a guy here named "The Pancake Man" and he travels and makes pancakes at events and fairs and things of the sort. His grill was about 10 feet long. It was crazy. As we poured all of the syrup into bottles- quite the difficult task, I'll tell you- we met one of his assistants. Pancake Man Steve. He is a young single adult that lives in Council Bluffs. WAIT. WHAT!? A YSA that lives in Council Bluffs?! Those are my favorite kind of people to talk to right now! Ha. He asked us all sorts of questions about being missionaries, and we gave him our phone number and invited him to the bonfire we are having tonight for Family Home Evening. We are praying that he will come, and I think he will because he has been texting and asking about it! What a miracle. See, blessings come for sacrificing sleep to serve, especially at 5 in the morning.
I love you all!
