Happles and Harnges

Hello everybody! :) It's been a pretty good week here in Grand Falls-Windsor. We have been seeing a lot of success and Newfoundland in general has been doing really well. The zone found 18 new investigators, which is incredible!! :) That hasn't happened in Newfoundland in a very long time. Along with that, we were able to teach a young girl named Bryanna Smythe. She is a child of record who lives with her less active mother Melissa! Melissa is super cool, and they both came to church today along with her other 4 year old son Derek. Derek is just a silly little boy! 

Other than that, we have been able to see some good things happen. Monday, as always, we had a Family Home Evening and played some games together as a church family. That was fun.

Tuesday was a pretty simple day, we had a couple of meetings and met with some of the less actives in town. So that was nice.

Wednesday was an interesting day. We were going to visit the Corner Brook Elders, but unfortunately we had our first storm, so we had to cancel it. The Gander Sisters were with us in Grand Falls, and unfortunately they couldn't drive back home because they left their phone in Gander and the storm was way too bad. So we spent the better part of the day helping them get situated in the church apartment. Then we tried to knock, but it was too snowy, so we literally called people in the phone book... it wasn't too bad though. We found a couple of people. :)

Thursday we took advantage of the storm and went shovel contacting. We ended up getting a referral for a lady who said she wants to meet with us! So that's sweet! We also spent some time helping a different lady shovel, and it turns out that her friend had family who were members of the church in British Columbia. They gave us a ton of food and made us lunch. The people in Newfoundland are just so caring. I love them!! We also were able to have a lesson with Bryanna and Melissa, so that was cool.

Friday we went to Sister Borden's to eat supper, and she made goolash! :) It was good. :) The dinners at her house are always so much fun. :) I love it!

The weekend we spent a lot of time trying to find people to teach. It's been up and down, for whatever reason we haven't been as fruitful as usual...but we will keep working! :)

I love you all!
