So much food.... So many Kilometers


I am trying to figure out a way to start my letters that doesn't sound exactly like every other letter that I have written, because I'm pretty sure people would probably be getting sick of reading the same stuff over and over again. I'm just boring like that, sorry. (Haha, already apologizing like a Canadian) So, here we go, I'll see if I can dig us some interesting stories for yous guys (Adding S's to the end of words is a Nova Scotia thing... It makes me crazy)

Monday: Great P-day. We took a long nap. Naps are great. If you are in the place to take a nap, you take that nap, and enjoy it. Seriously one of the best decisions to make on a P-day. After our super eventful day, we went and did Family Home Evening at the church. We had only planned for an hour, but one of the people who came started talking about conversion stories, and we ended up having a great conversation, and staying way past the hour we had planned. Needless to say, we didn't get any finding time in, but we got to know a couple members of the ward a little better, so it was totally worth it. 
That's my boy!

Tuesday: Haha, Tuesday was so crazy. We did the normal missionary thing in the morning, knocking on doors and what not. While we were out knocking, the sisters called us and told us that they had someone sign up on the wrong dinner calendar, and their supper appointment was actually for us. The only issue was that we already had a supper appointment for that night, and it was on the exact opposite side of the area. So what did we do? We went to both appointments. So much food.... So many Kilometers... But it was worth it! That night we were supposed to go to the seniors home to sing, but both us and the sisters were going to be late, so it got cancelled. I was pretty bummed about that. But hey, sometimes those things happen, what can you do?

Wednesday: District meeting. It was a pretty good meeting. Our DL is new, and still getting the hang of things, but he is doing really well. The Zone Leaders were there, so that stressed everyone out, but it ended up being really good. Wednesday night we went out to Hammond Plains and met with our investigator (He's the only one we have left...) He is doing great. We had to do a lot of clean up because his wife had tried to explain the Kingdoms of Glory to him before we got there, and he was so confused, but we finally got it almost worked out. He said that he doesn't understand how it works, but he can accept that it is true. I'm really excited for him! We ended up missing our Family History class because our appointment with him went really long, but the sisters were there to save the day. After Family history we had correlation with the Ward Missionaries, and great things are going to be happening here in Sackville :D
He is sad because one of them fell out.
Thursday: AMERICAN THANKSGIVING! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wished everyone here a Happy Thanksgiving, and they just looked at me like I was a crazy person and stuck in October. So it is great to say it to people who will just think I'm a little late. We had an awesome American Thanksgiving supper at the Bishops house with all the Americans in the ward. So much fun. It was great getting to know some of the members, and to just kick back and be American for a minute, haha. We did have to duck out from the supper a little early because we had an appointment with a Less-Active member, but it was still a great time!

Friday: Weekly planning. We spent a lot of time in the apartment working on an assignment from bishop. We had a whole list of Less-Active single adults that we needed to call and confirm all of their information. Awkward... Old ladies just laugh at you when you ask them if they are still single. It's pretty great. We went knocking out in Bedford, and found some beautiful houses. Nobody was interested, but we didn't even care because for once we weren't knocking in a sketchy part of town. (We usually knock the sketch areas and let the sisters have the nice ones... We are just nice like that.) Not a ton else actually happened on Friday...

Saturday: Saturday was cold. The morning was just bitter cold. We still went out street contacting, but it was so cold. Bright, sunny, and -4C with 90% humidity. It was fantastic. We met with a couple of Less-Active members, and then went back to that really nice neighborhood and knocked again. We aren't leaving it until we are done!  

Sunday: I was supposed to speak in church on Sunday, but the other two speakers went way over their time limit, so they rescheduled me to speak in two weeks... on a different topic... So I spent all week preparing a talk, just to have it thrown away and have to speak on something else later... I was pretty upset. Our investigator got really sick, so he wasn't able to make it to church, but they committed to come next week.  We went knocking out in the boonies in a little area near where we had a supper appointment, and we actually found a potential investigator. He was really nice, and it kinda surprised both of us. People don't usually say yes...We had supper with a fantastic member family. They are so much fun! We finished out the night by going to Halifax to practice for the Stake Choir thing that they have going on. (It's run by other missionaries, so that makes it really hard to say no...) That was pretty much our entire Sunday.

And that brings us back to now. It was quite the week. 

I do have something else to say that doesn't really fit into any of the days... I have a Tim Hortons addiction... Their Hot Chocolate it just too good.... It's pretty bad. I am becoming more and more Canadian as the days go on. :D
Gotta Have My Tim's

I hope everyone is having a great week! I love all of you! And I hope I will have some good stuff to report on next week.

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