Rain Rain Go Away... Please!

It's a beautiful day here in SC. And by beautiful I mean we are in the middle of a torrential downpour. This would be a lovely day to catch up on all the movies that I have DVR'd over the past couple of months. Unfortunately I have to get out at some point today. I have a baby shower gift to buy, a friends new house to go by *and hopefully help out a little*, and my parents house to go to. Hopefully it will slow down, but it sure doesn't sound like it!
Last night was very refreshing. After work I went with friends, J & C, to the church they go to. They had a big ... event I guess you can call it??... about missionary work (which I have been pretty interested in) There is a young couple that goes to church there that have been living in Africa for a couple of years. They are there with 2? children.. maybe 3.. and one on the way. The preacher was talking to them over the internet for us all to hear, although it was very hard to hear them, very muffled, we could all get the gist of it though. Their goal is to build churches over there and to bring people to Christ. It was very interesting to hear how they are raising their children and just to hear about their lifestyle really. They also had different foods there, a band playing, the little kiddies were dancing around with the band, and the childrens choir got up and sang a couple songs... which was so so cute!
After that the three of us went to eat some Mexican *we didn't eat much at the church* and then went to J's parents house for a bit. Our plan was originally to pick up a pie (since she's been pregnant that's all i've heard her talk about is pie pie pie) :)
But we ended up staying for a while. Somehow we got on the topic of Christianity and ended up talking for a least an hour. We were asking them alll kinds of questions. They are very very strong Christians and seem to have an answer for everything. I definately want to go back over there when we all have more time to talk! I'd love to sit and pick their brains for hours!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends and hopefully your weather is a little less dreadful than ours is!!

I'm not minding the rain so much. I had a hot stone massage this morning then came home to a hot shower and watched The Duchess. Now I'm drinking a great cup of coffee and blogging. What a great day!
