119 Degrees and the People you Meet!

I love being a missionary!!!! This week in particular, the weather here is way extreme compared to Idaho for a few days it was pretty hot but thankfully I was able to endure it and really quite enjoyed it thankfully. We keep well hydrated at all times so that probably helps.  Yesterday was the worst rainstorm I have ever seen there were trees falling left and right and the roads were so flooded so we had to wait out the storm till we could go out and work.  People in South Carolina are very patriotic and excited for the fourth and so am I because I get to go and find people to teach the gospel to :).  Me and Sister Allen have found new ways of contacting and getting into people’s homes one is to go in the heat and so they will feel sorry and let us in their AC homes and 2 is we carol we sing to people church hymns of course but it is funny when they tell you that we have pretty voices because neither one of are good but we know it is the spirit that makes it beautiful in their ears.   The people we meet in Florence are all different we have meet prophets who predict our futures and teach us of their Jesus.  We met this man his name was Leonard we met him at an investigators home and he escorted (on his jazzy scooter) us to the house and waited till we were done and escorted us back to our car he then offered to take us to a restaurant to get dinner after he asked for a dollar so we generously declined but he was very nice and protective of us and lectured us on safety and where not to go.  Everyone we teach and meet is different and their personalities are different.  They all have religion but they do not realize that they do not have more than what they believe and people get mad and offended when you try to tell them that. They give you the stare like you are the devil.  But we do find those who see that there is more and I love seeing them change and become these solid strong people who will have forever strong testimonies.   I know it :) I am humbled everyday being here and see how much trust God has in me to help guide these people to him and his gospel. I love you all and hope you are enjoying your nice cold weather. I really do hope and pray that this email finds you all well and happy.  I just cannot say it enough but I just love being a missionary. Till next week

Love Sister Browning
