It's great to be teaching people again!

Hello hello! Another week as come and gone in the Canada, Halifax Mission! It's already that time of week again, can you believe it?

So, I will see if I can think up some fun stories for this week!

Monday: It was pretty normal. Had Pday. We fixed the computer here at the church, so it doesn't take a total of for hours to email, so we actually get to have a Pday again! It's pretty awesome! After Pday was over, we went and knocked on some doors, and tried to get in contact with some former investigators. We finished up with a lesson with some less active members.

Tuesday: It was actually a pretty awesome day! We were supposed to drive up to Greenwood to stay the night with the District leader before Zone Conference in Dartmouth on Wednesday, but we really felt like we needed to stay in our area, and work here, and just drive up to Dartmouth Wednesday morning. So we called the DL and told him, and he told us to stay here, so we did. That night (at exactly the time we would have been driving to Greenwood), we knocked into someone who let us right in and we are now teaching him! It was pretty great!
Elder Beckman and I decided to take a picture before we left Halifax the other night, because we never actually get to see the temple at night!

Wednesday: We left Yarmouth at 5:50 so that we could get to Dartmouth at 9:00 so I could practice with the group for a musical number. Zone Conference was pretty great, it always is! This is going to be a crazy transfer! Lots of changes happening in the mission! After Zone Conference we had interviews with President Pratt. Good stuff. We had supper in Dartmouth at a SOLID seafood place, and then drove the 3.5 hours back to Yarmouth.

Thursday: We basically just worked out butts off trying to play catch up after losing a day to Zone Conference. Yeah, that's about it, tons and tons of work.
This is from when I saw Emile at Transfers. I promise he is happy,
 just not great at smiling, haha!

Friday: Yeah, so last week when we went shopping, we started talking to this guy in the check-out line that was from Jamaica, and had met with JW's over there. We had a really awesome conversation with him, and got his phone number. This week we were able to set up another appointment with him, and, we are now teaching him! It's pretty awesome! It's great to be teaching people again!

Saturday: Yeah, another day of just pounding the pavement. It was pretty crazy! Lots and lots of work. 

Sunday: Happy Sabbath! We spent the whole day meeting with shut-ins and less active members. I would call that a good day :D

So yeah, that was pretty much our week!

I hope you are all doing fantastic! I love your guts!
Have a great week!

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

P.S.Oh Yeah! And Before I forget to tell you, because I have forgotten every week for like, two transfers now, Gina Eves sister is serving here with her husband. Elder and Sister Excell are the Branch President and wife in the Halifax YSA branch. It was an interesting little connection that Bishops Sister in law was here in the mission.
