1 exchange, 2 mental institutions, and 3 crazy people later.....

Alrighty, so here we are. Back to Monday..... It was quite the week... I can't even start to explain it all... I guess I will have to start from the beginning.
Monday: It was a pretty good Pday. We didn't have much to do, so we went and looked around some of the tourist shops in Charlottetown. I stoped and bought a hoodie from one of the stores.
It says "Cool as a Moose". I love it! We also stopped in to the City Hall and got Charlottetown pins to add to my collection. That was pretty much our whole Pday. That evening we had a lesson with a new investigator, and his uncle who is a member. That was fun! It's always great to have people to work with. After the lesson we drove out to New Brunswick to start our exchange with the Zone Leaders.

Tuesday: Now this is where the crazy starts. The Zone Leaders had MLC for most of the morning, so we didn't get to do much there... Afterwards we stopped by a potential investigator that the sisters gave us. He fell through, that was a little bit of a bummer. We went back to the apartment to do a little work on the Area Book, and we got a call from the Sisters saying that one of the members had called them and their wife had had a stroke about a month ago, and nobody had been there to see her. He asked if we would be able to go and to give her a blessing, and afterwards if we could stop by in the other hospital to see him and read some scriptures with him. Happily we obliged...  We went and gave the blessing (This lady was not all there.... It was weird....) and then went to find the "other hospital". Little did we know that the hospital that he was in was a mental institution.... and I mean, the kind of place where Horror Movies and Video Games take place... This place was SKETCHY! We ran into so many crazy people... Screaming, and shouting, and being insane... It was super great, ya know.... While we were meeting with the member, we kept getting interrupted by people popping in to say things, and steal bibles, and talk about how they are God... It was strange... I wasn't all too impressed... I'm glad I made it out alive! We topped off the day by having supper with the Ward Mission Leader and his family. They are great!
I taught Elder B the correct face for selfies!

Wednesday: District Meeting here in Charlottetown. There was some other crazy that happened during the day, but that is a little less discussable, so sorry... After all that was done, we drove back to NB to switch back companions. On the way there we had to stop and get Cow's Icecream. It's supposed to be the best icecream in Canada. It's GREAT! We looked at the ingredients, and found out why it's super great. They use 16% milk... So basically that one icecream cone is probably the most fattening thing I have ever eaten in my life... YUM! 
Elder B drew a turtle and selfied with it with my camera...

Thursday: Basically, we just put in tons of finding hours on Thursday. We were really behind, so we worked all day. Nothing really new to report on that one.

Friday: Weekly Planning. And chips and salsa. That is how we survive weekly planning. We had our final interviews with President Leavitt before he leaves next week. That's pretty weird. That was probably the last time I'll see him in person. Strange. We had some lessons set up, but they ducked out on us... Again, not completely a waste, because I got Tim's out of it! We finished up the night with a YSA activity. The YSA are crazy. I love them! It ended up in a USA vs Canada debate. It always does. 'MURCA! 

Saturday: Lots of finding, and we visited a couple of Less Active members. That's about it....
Flying the American Flag at Boom Burger - that's what's up!

Sunday: Lots of finding. Church was fantastic. I love church. It's pretty much the highlight of my week now! Love it! And then back to finding. Lots and lots of finding. 

There you go, that's my super exciting week. Any questions, comments, concerns, verbal abuse, or cyber bullying, feel free to send me an email! I love getting emails!

Hope you all have a great week!

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