It's been a really crazy week again. On Sunday, we were able to go to the church to see the dedication of the Cebu Temple. We are so lucky to have so many temples all over the world and that it's so easy to go to the temple to do work for others. The spirit was strong as they talked about the importance of the temple; I know they really bless our lives. I had the opportunity to go to the temple this morning. It is so nice to just sit there without any distractions from the world and to receive inspiration. I also learned that President Monson is a really fun person. When he was outside the temple, he made the piano girl move so he could play. It's so amazing to me to have a living prophet here on the earth that can exercise the power of the Lord to dedicate temples for our benefit.
We are getting a lot of rain now. We were out working and then came home to eat lunch and while we had been out working, the sky was completely clear. Then 30 minutes later, as we were eating, we had a crazy rain storm with wind and lightening. It was probably the hardest rain storm I had ever seen; that's happened twice this week. It's definitely not like Pasco, but we continue to work. There hasn't really been a problem with flooding yet, but you do have to walk on higher ground or you will soak your shoes.
Well that's what's been going on here. I love you all and you are in my prayers.
Love, Elder Smith
