elder egbert versus the ark

I swear, never have I ever seen it rain so much.

Even for France, it rained a butt load.

I'm pretty sure that there was one day during this whole week where it
didn't rain. But hey, we count our blessings as they come.

Jessie got baptized is week! What an incredible experience. For my
whole mission, it has been one of my dreams to meet someone from the

Nagloo is officially gone. (For those of you that are actually

This week, i was reading in the book of Mosiah and there was a verse
that stuck out to me.
"9 Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things,
both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all

Stay fresh.

Go jazz.
