That Sunday night the thunder started at 11:30 pm, continued with intense lightning all through the night with pouring rain. There was still lightning and thunder through the morning on Monday. A foot of rain fell in some area causing bayous, roads, and houses to flood. The street by the temple was flooded but not the temple.
Elders Backstein, James, Queen & Hanks cleaned up tree branches at the office that were the result of the storm.

We gave them a print of a painting by a local artist, Ken Turner, called “I Will Go Before Your Face”. The print shows 2 actual sister missionaries of the Texas Houston Mission. As they walk a Texas road the Savior is before them with angels on the right, left and behind them. “…I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.” D & C 84: 88
