Brett Hogg was serving a mission for The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Texas Dallas/East Texas area when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma (Stage IIIB). He was later declared cancer-free and now he has returned to missionary service in Dallas! This chronicles our journey...

Not much new... and Hurricane update

a whole lot new this week. This family we've been working with (the one
where they own a restaurant and the dad has little drinking temptation,
if I've written about them before), well the dad was in the hospital and
hes out now and we stopped in and visited and had a spiritual little
moment with them and their inactive son was there with his non-member
girlfriend. They all felt the spirit and the mom and dad were tearing
up. Then the son asked us where God came from (we told him to read
Abraham, and Genesis) lol, and his girlfriend asked about temples. We
gave her a Book of Mormon and it was a pretty cool experience.
far as the Hurricane, it just rained here a little more than usual, but
other than that nothing crazy. When it rains here it starts and goes
really hard, the suddenly stops and starts again. Then there was a huge
gas panic which was NUTS. People parked around the block at every gas
station. Then by the end of the night, and into the next two days,
nearly all gastations where out of gas. So that was crazy, all the car
missionaries where worried we would have to be on bikes lol. A lot of
stations are still out right now. I assumed it was like that everywhere
but I guess just north Texas/DFW. You can probably find the news on it,
everyone was freaking out.
than all that, not much. We haven't been able to get back with our
micro multitude, and the other lady that we taught with Elder Rodriguez
his first day pretty much dropped us. We did help our Branch Mission
Leader paint some on his house today, and his wife fed us tacos.
Otherwise not a whole lot new.
