Who Knew That's All it Would Take!!!

(June 13, 2016)

Well, everybody, it's been a pretty fun week. We had a lot of good things happen in our area, and all we needed to do apparently, was be in our area for the week. It was a pretty good time today, we had some miracles happen, and we have a lot going on for this next week. :)

Monday was a nice relaxing day. We went knocking out in the country. Thorburn, NS to be exact. It was a pretty nice place, people would let us in to talk because none of them had ever seen missionaries before. We met one family out there who we hopefully will be able to teach. :) Here's to hoping!! Other than that it was a pretty simple P Day.

Tuesday was where things really started to get exciting. We started out the first hour of the morning by getting a new investigator, who was a referral we got while knocking. He was pretty cool, he is a jack of all trades kind of guy, he used to live in Alberta, and he works a lot. We are excited for him. He had learned that our church was the fastest growing in the world, and he had to figure out why. So cool! Later on that day we went to Antigonish to work there, and it went pretty well, we taught a lady who we knocked into on her patio. She was pretty nice and we are going to teach her tonight as well. She wants to know how she can be with her family forever. It was a really good day! We also taught a man that used to investigate the church, but was too busy at the time. His name is Ozzy, he is super funny and we feel like he will be a pretty good investigator to work with. He is seeking for additional purpose in his life.

Wednesday was District Meeting day in New Glasgow, so that was a relief. After that, we went park contacting because it was pretty sunny outside, and went to a dinner appointment with a member. She is just starting to come back, and her husband and her were so cool. I'm glad we got to meet them. :) after that we had a lesson with a kid that the Sisters had found in Thorburn. He is a pretty cool guy, he is very simple, and he is a pagan, which is pretty interesting. We are going to meet with him tomorrow. But he was pretty cool! :)

Thursday was another great day. We had exchanges with the Truro Elders, and they came to our area. We split off and Elder Lerminez and I went to Antigonish while Elder Hunt stayed in New Glasgow with Elder Alger. It was a good time. We learned a lot on the exchange, and we ended up teaching a really solid YSA age girl! She's so cool! She's loving the Book of Mormon and it's good to hear that she is enjoying it.

Friday was a little scattered, but it was still a good planning day and we worked hard in Trenton for a while.

Saturday we helped a family with their insulation and ceilings, so that was fun. I got to put insulation into the walls, since I'm a little shorter, but it was fun. We also had a really successful primary activity that was a blast too, and we had a lot of less active members come.

It's just been a very fulfilling week this week. I'm so glad I get to serve the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I love the gospel, and I love how much it has helped me in my life. I love being a missionary. :) I'll talk to you next Wednesday! :)
