God Said He Would Never Flood The Earth Again ...Week 10 in Monroe

     Monday was great that day! We met the ward mission leaders wife at Greenfield Village and we spent our preparation day there and it was sweet. I dont know how to best explain it other then searching it up for yourselves, what a fun place. Later that evening we went by to a less active and Elder Musich taught the lesson because she only speaks Spanish. She made us dinner and it was rice and some lamb but the lamb was way to spicy and since she knows I don't do spice she had some without for me, she is awesome! It was a great day. 

     Tuesday we went to help an older lady in the ward mow her lawn, and that was great. Another appointment for Elder Musich and his back so we went to the doctors and in total of appointment and driving its was 3 hours. That evening we had the Book Mormon Class and it was great as everyone there learns so much and you really come to love the Book Of Mormon. We saw this family as we went home teaching and they are a great family, a strong resemblance of my family. 😁 

     District Meeting which was great, the assistants came to it and that was great! AND WE LEARNED A LOT. That evening upon the request of someone in the ward we stopped by his sons and talked with him. Then we had a visit with a less active member and she is great!!! I love it, she is so funny.  

     On Thursday Mornings there is a flee market in Monroe and we go to it every so often to talk with people so we went today and I bought some corn on the cob and this huge cantaloupe. It probably weighed 4-5 pounds.... okay back story here... the other three Elders when we were at correlation at the ward mission leaders home and they had corn on the cob, they put mayo instead of butter on there corn and I have yet to fall in to such abomination. 😷 We had a mini exchange tonight so we could cover more appointments and later Elder Musich couldn't do much due to back pain so we stayed in the apartment and I also felt ill. 

     Super Planning on Friday then some appointments where we shared the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and it was great. We were able to help them understand the need for it in their life. Then some finding, the good old stuff. 

     So Saturday is really where the title comes in to play we were tracking and we could see the clouds and I knew by previous encounters that it would unleash but we had hope and the faith that someone would let us in so we would not need to be out in it but low and behold we knocked and a lady said you better get back to your car or some shelter because the forecast says it about to come down and she didn't let us in so we ran/walked back to the car in the rain and we were pretty wet. As we were driving back it was like flash flood, the water in some parts was like right under the car, but "God Said He Would Never Flood The Earth Again"  That night we took an investigator over to our ward mission leaders and had dinner and watched the restoration video, it was great!

     Sunday was also full of adventure. I had to give closing prayer in sacrament, first time doing that. When we were home for lunch there was another massive thunderstorm and the thunder made me jump, it was by far the loudest I had ever heard. Later that night we had correlation and it was bright and sunny. 

Hope you are all reading in Alma 17-27 

Lots of Love

Elder Rodgers
