Homemade Poutine and Pink Cream Soda... I'm becoming more and more Canadian as we speak!

The lovely picture I captured of my district as I was trying to set the timer :D

Here we are again, Transfer Week Already. I can't believe how fast the time is flying! 

Bridgewater Alumni
It's been an interesting week, as always. There never seems to be a Not-Interesting week. I guess that is a good thing! Lets see what kind of stories I can scrape together for this week:

Brigewater Alumni
Monday: We really don't do all too much for P-days out here. No real adventures to report. We spent the day taking naps, and cleaning and what not, and then heading out to Amherst to spend the night for the Leadership meeting in Dartmouth the next day.

Tuesday: We got up ridiculously early and traveled from Amherst to Dartmouth for the meeting to start at 9:30 am. The meetings are always good. I really enjoy being able to see all the leaders from around the mission! It's great! And I get to see some old companions, and mission friends. Plus we also get training, so that is super great. The meeting got over at 4:30, we left after supper at about 5:30, and finally made it back home safe and sound in Summerside at about 9:00 pm. It was great! 

Wednesday: District meeting in Charlottetown. It ended up being an extended district meeting because of the leadership training the day before, so it was 3 hours instead of the normal 2. That caused the day to be a bit cluttered, and we had to do some thinking on our feet to fix our plans for the day, but it all worked out. We had a lesson fall though on us, so that was a bummer. We had supper with a less active member, and his investigator girl friend, that was fun! The Senior couple from the area came along too, it was pretty fun :)

Thursday: It was quite an interesting day. We had a lesson with a potential investigator, and he ended up not so much being a potential. He was a Born Again Christian, who didn't really want to discuss anything, but more tell us that we are saved by grace alone, and there isn't anything else that we need. We can do whatever we want, but as long as we accept Jesus into our hearts, we are saved... He was also talking about how the only part of the bible that applies to us is Paul, because it is written to the Gentiles. But not Hebrews, that's not really Paul writing. It was a crazy lesson. But, later as we were knocking, we came across a really great guy and he became a new investigator, so that's pretty awesome! He is such a sweet guy!

Friday: Weekly planning. Pretty much the same as it is every week. Really not a whole lot of new stuff for Friday... We met with our new investigator again, he is super great!

Saturday: We went out to Alberton. Such a nice little town. We had a meeting with our investigator out there, and she ended up dropping us... She made up her mind that the Book of Mormon isn't true. It was pretty sad.... But, we worked all we could out there, and made the most out of the day. 

Sunday: Our investigator came to church! He stayed for all 3 hours, and even came along to the Linger Longer! It was so awesome! He loved it! We ended up having a lesson with him later that night, and he loved it so much! He says he can see himself being a member, he just needs a little while. It's so awesome! I am excited. I guess we also got transfer news on Sunday... Both me and my companion are staying in Summerside, but we aren't companions any more. They are taking out the sisters and putting in another set of Elders, and we are getting split between the new Elders. I'm going to be companions with my MTC companion again, so that is pretty great! I'm excited for that. It's going to be a good transfer! 

Well, I guess that's about it for this transfer! I don't have a lot else to add on. Just that I love y'all, and I hope you are doing well! Have a great week!
