Another Week Gone

Hello all,

Well, It's already Monday again. How crazy is that? I honestly feel like I was just here writing my last letter to y'all! Time is a crazy thing on a mission. I've only been out for 2 weeks, and it feels like 2 days and 22 months all at the same time! 

This week has been a crazy week in the work of The Lord. We have met so many people, and picked up 3 new investigators in 3 days! Things are sure starting to pick up around here! Sackville is the place to be in Atlantic Canada right now :D

There are some people that you work with who you just know are going to leave a lasting impression on you, and there are times when it is impossible not to she The Lords hand in your life. Both of these things came together in our newest investigator, Theresa. She has had so many problems in here life, and the story of how she came to meet with us in totally unreal. God works in crazy ways my friends.

The weather here cant make up its mind. The other day it was cold and rainy and maybe like 18 degrees (64.4) outside, and today it has been all sunshine. I think it even got up to like 26 degrees (78.8), so that's pretty warm when you are wearing a suit! The nights are starting to cool down, which means within the next two weeks I'm probably going to have to go shopping for some cold weather gear. I'm just praying I don't get transferred to Newfoundland for the winter months, that would be awful!

It's been difficult for me trying to get to know everyone in the ward. Because there are only a set of Sisters and a set of Elders per ward, you are expected to know everyone! And I mean, not just know every one, you are expected to know everything about their lives! I'm not that social of a person yet, I don't know how to just go up to some one and ask for their entire life story... Maybe that is a skill that comes with time.

I got to help clean the temple today. THAT WAS SO COOL! I loved it so much. I would hate to do it all the time, but it was cool to do it once. It takes so much work to keep the temple clean, and we only have a tiny temple out here, I can only imagine what it takes to keep one of the really big temples clean!

Missionary work is crazy. I am tired all the time. ALL THE TIME! Even when you take naps, or sleep well, it doesn't matter, you are still going to be very, VERY tired. I guess you just have to get used to working in a perpetual state of sleepy.... I'm not very good at it yet. Elder Blum has started calling me the Space Cadet because I get tired and space out... oops....

I about exploded when I found out about Tara's Mission call, CONGRATS!!!! I'm so excited! She is going to be the best missionary, and y'all can quote me on that ;)

 I think that is every thing for this week. I don't know what else to say. It's crazy here. Insane. Nuts, coocoo for cocopuffs.... But I love it! I wouldn't trade this time for any thing! 

Have a fantastic week!

Hockey hockey, Moose moose, Maple leaf, Sorry about that, eh?
