Angels Among Us ~April 27th

Tornados all over Alabama and Mississippi, but thankfully for now all missionaries are safe and accounted for. The closest one to Elder Franklin was about 59 miles away. Some Elders have been moved to safer areas. We are so thankful that he is safe! President Holzapfel is keeping us updated about every 6 hours. He is wonderful and doing all he can to take care of those in his charge.

Also, Mckena and Shayla tried out on for the Syracuse High Dance Line. I am happy to report that they both made it! Mckena was chosen as President. They drew numbers to find out what order they would tryout with. Shay drew #18 and Mckena drew #2o which put them in the same group! What are the chances of that? They are both excited to spend next year dancing and spending choice time together.

And also today was our dear Chelsea's birthday. We can't help but feel her love and watchful care as she was with all of us today in one way or another. We had so many wonderful friends and family members remember her this day and that means the world to us!
For a day that started out very emotional and rough, we ended the day knowing that there truly are angels among us, in more ways than one!
