"If it sounds like a freight train get in your bathroom!" ...."but we live next to a train station!!" 11/17/14

So last night we were on lockdown for a severe and imminent tornado warning. It actually touched down about 7 miles away from where we were at a member's house. Everyone's fine, don't worry about it. No one was hurt. But it was a fun (crazy) night. The whole mission was on lockdown. It was fun! But yeah, we live by a train station so some of the sisters were freaking out cause we hear freight trains all the time! all was well :)
This week went really well. We had zone training meeting, where we had to instruct on how to make your mission the ideal mission that God has for you. It took about 2 days of planning (no fishing this time though). I heard it turned out well, but I don't know. It's hard to tell with your own instructions. 
We had double exchanges this week, unintentionally! We went on exchanges with the Denham South sisters, and when Sis H woke up in the morning, she was super sick! so we let her stay home with sis carpenter (who got a concussion this week so she couldn't go out) and Sister Hafford and I went out and worked. It was fun to work with 3 different companions in a week! I'm getting a better grip on the area now, too. so that helps. 
This week we have MLC (Mission leadership council) on wednesday, then exchanges with sis McEntire on Thursday! I am so excited :) Doing exchanges with your best friends is the best :) Then we have the ward's thanksgiving dinner on Saturday and interviews with President on Sunday! so it's going to be a big week...again. No rest for the wicked! 

Today is Sis Hafford's birthday, so we're throwing her a party at the church--the assistants and office elders are coming. It's gonna be a blast!
Love yall! Have a great week :)

Quote from conference:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored to move throughout the world the knowledge of the life and teachings of the Savior. This great conference is being broadcast in 94 languages by satellite to 102 countries but is also available on the Internet to every nation where the Church is present. We have over 3,000 stakes. Our full-time missionary force exceeds 88,000, and total Church membership has passed 15 million. These numbers serve as evidence that the “stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands” continues to roll forth and will eventually fill “the whole earth” (D&C 65:2).
But no matter how large the organization of the Church becomes or how many millions of members join our ranks, no matter how many continents and countries our missionaries enter or how many different languages we speak, the true success of the gospel of Jesus Christ will be measured by the spiritual strength of its individual members. We need the strength of conviction that is found in the heart of every loyal disciple of Christ.
We seek to strengthen the testimonies of the young and old, the married and single. We need to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to men, women, and children, those of every race and nationality, the rich and the poor. We need the recent convert and those among our numbers descended from the pioneers. We need to seek out those who have strayed and assist them to return to the fold. We need everyone’s wisdom and insight and spiritual strength. Each member of this Church as an individual is a critical element of the body of the Church.
Each member serves as a testimony of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We are at war with the forces of the adversary, and we need each and every one of us if we are going to succeed in the work the Savior has for us to do..
Everyone matters! Love yall!
Sister Steele
