Hey Family!!! How are ya all doin? I hope real good!! Soooo much happened this week!! It was crazy! So first off we have been in a ton of tornado warnings! It was soo much fun!! We got stuck in the E's basement and just chilled down there till the tornado passed. It didn't hit directly Sioux city so we were fine! Although there was golf ball size hail!!! Sooo sweet! But a DOUBLE tornado hit Pilger Nebraska. (which is about 45 mins away from us.) oh awkward...you all have the news so you probably already heard about this..anyways...so the whole town of pilger was completely destroyed. It was soo sad. We were able to go with a bunch of missionaires and serve for 2 whole days cleanin up the tornado damage. It was so sad....these peoples houses were literally picked up and completely ripped down to shreds all over their fields. We walked fields for 6 hours on Saturday and I found dolls and wedding pictures and clothes and roof ALL over their corn fields. It was seriously one of the saddest things I have ever seen....the people were completely devasted. They had the national guard there and red cross and TONS and TONS of volunteers from all over the U.S. comin to help. It was soo cool to be apart of it.
