What a week!!
We were all over the place this week!!
We were in Truro all day Monday. Then Wednesday we left New Glasgow at 6:30 am to travel 4 hours to Cape Breton to go to our district meeting from 10:30-12:30 then we traveled another 4 hours back to New Glasgow where we were for a few more hours. Then Thursday morning at 6:30 we left again to go to New Brunswick for a leadership counsel. This is when all the leaders in the mission (stls, zone leaders and the Pratts) meet together to discus the needs of the mission and how we, as leaders can help the missionaries. We were there from 9-5 in counsels and training's and then we packed up and headed home and arrived just in time for bed (: Sooo busy busy few days!
Inspite of all these things going on we were still able to meet with all our investigators. We met with Patrick in Truro and that went well. Then Bernie, who is SO cool!! He is just like a sponge! He absorbs everything we teach and asks so many good and genuine questions! I just love teaching him!
We also were able to meet with Jason 3 times this week!! I love when we have investigators that are willing to meet more than once a week!! It helps them to progress so much more! We had some really spiritual lessons with him! He knows he doesn't know much about God, but he also knows that he really wants to. So he is willing to act and do what he needs to to get the answers he is searching for! He related to the Joseph Smith story SO much! It was sooo cool!! When we read James 1:5 (
And he explained (perfectly) what that scripture meant and then he said, "this makes me think...if God would answer Joseph Smiths question, he would answer any question we have for him.
It was like...WOW this kid gets it!! It was awesome!! I love teaching him! I can just seem him in a suit with a badge one day...(: He'll be a killer missionary! I know it! OH OH OH and he's on date for May 30th, that's coming up quick! He even picked the day himself!!
On a sad note...Steve Aucoin is in the hospital, it happened yesterday so we spent the whole day with Jackie (that's what president asked us to do) And he is doing much better, but if you all would pray that he can continue to recover quickly I know that would help so much!
I love love love you all!! Have the BEST week!!!
We went Canadian bowling!! Woo! The balls are tiny! Sorry America...Canada's bowling is better(;
