And we get to do it all again next week :P

Hello Hello!

What a week it has been! I know I always say that, but it is always true! It may not seem all too crazy when I write about it, but life is pretty crazy around here. Lets see what happened this week.

Monday: Not a ton happened. Just P-day. We did all of our shopping and what not, and then spent the evening traveling down to Amherst where we spent the night. 

Tuesday: Well, we got up at 4:30, so we could travel all morning to get to Dartmouth at 8:00 in time for the Temple Session before the all day leadership meeting. It was pretty good. It's always interesting to put all the leaders from the mission into one room and watch what happened. The tension in the room was almost palpable :P But, there are going to be a lot of good changes happening here in the mission because of that meeting. So that is pretty great. We spent the rest of the evening driving Back to Amherst to pick up my companion, and then driving back to the Island. I hate traveling that much. And we get to do it all again next week :P 

Wednesday: District meeting in Montague. It was an interesting meeting. It was extended an extra hour so all the leaders would have time to train on the training that we received at the Leadership Meeting the day before. Change is hard, haha. That fact was reflected on how the training was received :P No, everything went well. Life is good :D

Thursday: It was a rough day. We had an appointment set up with a really solid former from our Area Book, but we were running a few minutes late to our meeting. We showed up and he wasn't there, so we gave him a call. He told us that we weren't on time, so he left, and he is done with people wasting his time and doesn't want to hear from missionaries any more... We messed up a little bit... But, I guess that's the way life goes. We live and learn.... 

Friday: Weekly planning. Fun as always. We had an awesome lesson with one of our investigators! She is on date for baptism for September 12. It's a ways out, but that is the date that she set and agreed to for herself. So, that's great. We had supper with an awesome family. The whole family are members, except one, and he is investigating, so we will see. He comes to church every week, so that's pretty awesome! They are such a cool family!

Saturday: CONFERENCE!!! Conference was super great! I enjoyed every session of it! We had an investigator come to the 5:00 session, so that is pretty awesome (oh yeah, the sessions here are 1:00-3:00, 5:00-7:00, with the priesthood session at 9:00 going til 11:00... It's a wee bit later than in Utah...) 

Sunday: Pretty much the same as Saturday. Conference was great!

So yeah. That's where we are now. We went and played Squash with one of the Young Men from the ward this morning! That was pretty great! 

I hope everyone is doing well! Congrats to Janika Jensen on her Mission Call to Omaha Nebraska! That's pretty cool! You and Tara will be comps. one day :D

I love you all!
