Is the parking brake on?

We have been working out in Dublin a lot.  Dublin is an even smaller town really close to Stephenville.  There is a lot of potential out there, and we are starting to find some new investigators out there. 
Stephenville and Dublin are so small.  I am really in the country right now.  Last night, as I was looking at the stars, they were so bright and clear.  I am definitely a city girl through and through, but I love the country sky.  It is spectacular.  I saw Leo the Lion last night, which is a sure sign that Spring is coming (or it is here!)  I love Texas Weather!  It is so nice right now.  We still need our jackets in the evening, but the days are beautiful!  I love it!
We have a lot of potential baptisms right now, which could all happen really soon.  
The first is Lindsey.  She is engaged to a member, who is also a Rodeo-er ( is that a word?). They have a large ranch, and raise horses.  Lindsey is amazing.  She reads and understands the Book of Mormon better than any one I know, especially considering that this is her first time reading the Book of Mormon and she doesn't have a background in the church.
Then there is Terja.  She has been investigating the church for years, and could be baptized any day, if she makes that commitment to herself.
There is also Priscilla.  I love Priscilla.  She is more active than most of the members, and she has even come on exchanges with us! :D  The only thing keeping her back from being baptized is the law of chastity.  Her "esposo" is married in Mexico, and his divorce has to go through before they can get married.  We have heard exciting news about the divorce, so it could possibly go through sooner than later, and she could be married and baptized really soon.
Hermana Potter and I have so much fun together.  We are always talking about gospel doctrine, mathematics, star trek, rodeos, people, or something else fun. 
On Saturday there was a huge thunderstorm.  At 6 pm it started raining. At 6:10, we arrived at our destination.  We were parked next to an empty field, by an abanoned factory, and there was a railroad.  There were also some pretty sketchy houses.  It was a great place to be on a dark and stormy night!   We ran out of the car into the pouring rain.  (Imagine the water dumping bucket at Oquirrh Park, except it is pouring continously and everywhere.)  We were out in the rain for 40 seconds max, between walking to the house and walking back to the car.  (We stopped under the porch for a few minutes to talk to the people in the house).  But in those few seconds, we were drenched.  I could literally wring my skirt out it was so wet.  
Best wishes,
Hermana Julie Anna Sanchez
