Hurricane Irene was really pretty boring. We only got the outer bands (the very outer bands) in Greensboro. We didn't even get any rain. The wind was almost like Rexburg winds, though, so that was good. President Thomas has us taken care of. He sent out a message to get some extra food and water and make sure we could ride out two or three days without power. So the official report :boring. windy. some good gusts. two branches knocked out of small trees. boring. repeat, boring. :)
I actually didn't feel the earthquake. everybody was talking about it but I still don't have any idea what they were talking about.
Good news: if all goes well, we'll have a baptism this weekend! Dennis is his name.
Also please pray for Alexis, our newest investigator. She's been dating a member and wants to know the wholoe shebang. She's committed to baptism and to read the Book of Mormon to know if it is true. Just as a side note, she has two cute kittens too, an orange tabby named Luna and gray longhaired something-or-other named Tonks.
Going to Zone activity today, so more next week!
Love, Elder Brown
