So, at least I'm wearing clean clothes :P

Hey hey hey!
Rollin up in our sunglasses :P
Hello again from Sunny Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island! 

It's been a pretty good week here, and guess what, we got Transfer Letters yesterday.... Drum roll please.... For the first time in almost 8 transfers, NOTHING IS HAPPENING!!! I'm not getting transferred, my companion isn't getting transferred, we aren't getting split up, the sisters are staying put. NOTHING IS CHANGING! It's so awesome! I don't even know what to do with myself. I don't have to worry about me packing, or my comp. packing. It's so awesome! I love it!
Sometimes we actually go out and work :P

So, In other news... Lets see if I can think up some stories:

Monday: It was pretty much a normal Pday... We didn't do anything overly exciting.. Lot's and lots of laundry! So, at least I'm wearing clean clothes :P We had a supper appointment with a couple who live way out in the boonies! It was a really nice scenic drive though. They convinced us when we were leaving to take the scenic route home because "it only adds like 5 minutes to your travel time". That's a lie... More like 35 minutes... We didn't really have much time to do anything else that night. But at least it was an awesome view!

Tuesday: We did a lot of finding. We knocked, we street contacted, we called people, we went and visited Former Investigators... Basically anything we could do, we did it.  We had a lesson with a Recent Convert. He is a pretty great guy. Has a good outlook on life. After that, it was a lesson with a less active (not really less active anymore) family. And then right on back to finding.
The Awesome mural outside a shop here in Charlottetown. 

Wednesday: District meeting, here in Charlottetown, like always. It was a good meeting, lots of great input from the District. We did a lot more finding. And then we had a lesson with one of the Sisters Investigators, that they are giving to us so we actually have someone to teach. That went alright.. We aren't sure of how committed they are right now, so I guess we will see as we keep teaching them. Then we had Correlation with the Ward Mission Leader, but he wasn't there, so it was just Correlation with the Assistant Ward Mission Leader. It was still an alright meeting though. Trying to get things rolling here.

Thursday: Thursday is our Service day. WE street contacted for a while, and then we went to the Soup Kitchen to help out for the day. The lady who runs the place is a saint. She is pretty interested in the gospel, so we are trying to set up an appointment with her. That will be great when we can. We were so late to the Supper appointment that we had... We got out of the soup kitchen late (because we were talking to the lady about setting up a time) and when we walked back to where we normally park the car, we realize that we had walked to the Soup Kitchen, and we were parked back home.... So we had to bolt back to our house (about 1.5 Kilometers away), and then the family lives way out in the bush, so it took us forever to get there.. We felt so bad!
Even the Garden Gnomes here love Hockey

Friday: Weekly planning, and Correlation with the Sisters.... after that all of our appointments for the day fell though, so we ended up doing a lot more finding for the day... It was pretty rough.

Saturday: I spent Saturday in Montague on an exchange with one of the Members of the district. It was kind of a last minute exchange so we left Friday night, and switched back Saturday night. I was expecting to kick back and let the other missionary lead out his area, but that wasn't really the case. So, We did lots of work, and even ran into a couple of crazy people... It was super fun!

Sunday:  Church. Great as always. We  went out and talked to a lot of people (that's kind of the reoccurring theme here, we talk to a TON of people). Then we had supper with an awesome family. It's always great to dine with Americans :P There are actually a couple of families in our ward from Utah... I don't know what drives people to move to PEI from Utah, but there are a couple here. The sisters called us and asked us to give one of their investigators and her son a blessing, so we went over and did that for them. It was incredible, the spirit was so strong there, I can't even believe it! I am so thankful that she asked us to do it!
The Ghetto air conditioner that we made (They don't have air conditioning here because you would only have to use it for 2 months out of the year, so it's not really worth it... But it's super hot and humid!)

Well, that's about it for this week... I can't think of much else going on. I will let you know if I forgot anything next week :P
See this? This is called a "Chub". Do you know what a chub is? It's a log of Bologna.... This is how they sell Bologna here... In giant logs! It's crazy!

I love you all, and I hope you have an awesome week! 

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