My Mission Experience

And the Rains Came Down

June 14, 2010

Dear Parents,

First let me tell you that all missionaries are accounted for and reasonably dry.  This has been the strangest six months. We have have blizzards, extreme cold, ice storms, wild fires, massive hail storms, tornadoes, an earthquake or two, and now the rain.  The missionaries will brag about the spring of 2010 the rest of their lives.  We woke up this morning to thunder and lightening and then the rains came down.  We are used to heavy rainfalls and I couldn’t tell that this storm was unusual until I went out in it.  The heaviest rain fell in a limited area with close to fifteen inches falling throughout the day.  Other areas only got abut seven inches.  For a while we told the missionaries to stay in their apartments and when they ventured out to avoid low places.  The city officials helped by closing several streets and roads.  The heavy rain was restricted mainly to the metro area.  Many parts of the mission got little or no rain.  It is still raining tonight and there will probably be a little more flooding, but the forecast is that the rain will be lighter and won’t impact travel tomorrow like it did today.  None of the missionaries live in areas which are prone to flooding so they should be in good shape tonight.

Sister Gee and I are in the process of traveling around the mission and saying goodbye to the missionaries.  That will take most of our remaining time.  Collectively, the missionaries are working hard and striving to improve.  We love them and will miss them.  We appreciate your prayers in behalf of the missionaries.  I see evidence of God’s protection every day.

Best wishes,

President Gee and Sister Gee

  1. Elder Peper is a great missionary. He and Elder jackson taught me while he was in Burkburnett. He was at my baptism. He was the best missionary we have had. He does a fantastic job.

  2. Thank you, Sister Coffey. He mentioned that your baptism was wonderful, and he provided a photo with you that I posted here on April 27. I am so happy for you and appreciate your kind words about our son.
