Erin Letter and Photos 9/30/2013
Mum, Well, Annie and her kids asked me to speak at their baptism. Wow! and President Harding is going to be there...and Bishop Corbridge, and the ward, and tons of other missionaries....no pressure. I'm speaking on baptism and I am absolutely TERRIFIED! Sister Hixon is going to play the piano, but I'm so totally scared! Wow Mom...I've been out for 3 weeks and I was made a trainer. I'm training Sister Green who is from Orem too and she went to Timpanogus. I've been out 3 weeks and I can barely manage all this with what's going on and now I'm a trainer! Stressful!! I don't know how much longer I can handle this stress. I'm dying. Oh my Gosh!!!! I was on exchanges or whatever with Sister Green and I was the Senior Comp. We were having a 'crappy' day and none of our appointments were opening their doors...so we decided to go to the Library to make some phone calls. When we were headed to our next appointment, we had to cross the street to go where we needed to go...it's a busy street like Center Street but at 45 mph. I thought about crossing and I got the thought to not. So I walked about 20 feet in the opposite direction. I turned around when I heard tires screeching and 2 cars got in a head-on collision!!!!! Shrapnel was flying past our heads. Once I saw the crash I instantly took off running towards it; I didn't have a second thought. I was the 1st on the scene and I ran towards the 1st car. The guy jumped out and he instantly grabbed me. He was in major shock. I set him on the ground and immediately started to aide his wounds. Before I knew it, both he and I were covered in blood. I couldn't tell where the blood was coming from. When the ambulance guys came they took over. Thank goodness! The other guy cut up his face and both cars were obliterated. I gave both my witness testimony and my church testimony. I taught 16 different lessons that day and I realized that everyone at the scene was huddled around me. I was so calm and speaking with the spirit that everyone was Mesmerized. The EMT'S checked me out to see my level of shock and they were amazed that I was so calm and preaching about God.
