Snow, then Rain, Rain, Rain
We are truly amazed at the weather here!  The above photo was taken last weekend with Sisters Holloway, Smuin and I at the Orchid Show.  (They both go home in May and I will miss all the fun we have had with them.)  That was the last lovely day we saw.  After a winter of lots of snow, we are now experiencing rain.  And when rain is predicted, even if it is only 20% chance, it RAINS!  It has been raining nonstop for 2 days now.  The ground is sopping wet with puddles everywhere.  I sure wish I could send some of this rain to St. George!  On a happy note, it has been in the 40's for a couple of days, so we have turned the heat down.  The week has been good.  Elder Jones has had 2 teaching experiences and Sister Jones 3.  We LOVE going out with the missionaries.  I am getting much more confident in teaching lessons.  It helps that I attend district meetings each week and we must practice using role playing.  We were able to attend part of Missionary Leadership Training on Friday, as Elder Jones needed to speak to the leaders about "designated drivers" and I did their lunch along with Sister Smuin.

Tonight we are headed to a homeless shelter in Downtown Philadelphia where we are feeding about 300 people dinner.  Our ward does this several times each year and we enjoyed participating so much last time that we signed up again!  We feel so very grateful to have always had food and shelter.  What a huge blessing that is--and so easily overlooked...
