We did a whole whack of travelling!

Hey There!

I guess I should probably write an email this week to go along with all of the pictures this week. There are also a couple of videos on the way, I hope they are able to come through! 

So yeah... Let me think up if we did anything exciting this week....

Monday: Nothing too exciting for Pday. We did lots of shopping, and stuff like that. It was pretty boring. We had a lesson with one of our investigators, and it went really well. She is doing pretty great! We are super excited for her progress! Other than that, it was a pretty quiet day.

Tuesday: We did a lot of finding, and tried to visit a whole bunch of Less-Active members. We are trying to start working with more LA's in the branch. Nobody lives close together around here, so we did a whole whack of travelling! We got to get in and see a couple of people, so that was pretty nice. Yeah... That's about all we did on Tuesday. Hunt people down, that's what we do :P

Wednesday: It was a bit of a sad day.... We started out pretty good, we had District meeting, and then had a lunch appointment with a really sweet lady. After lunch we shovelled her drive for her (We had about 20cm (8inches) of snow that day), and then headed out to a lesson. The lesson didn't go exactly how we had hoped... Our investigators decided that they no longer wanted to keep going, and don't want to meet with us any more... that was a hard "Breakup", haha! We still went out and worked afterwards. That was about all for Wednesday...

Thursday: We did lots of finding. We tried to get back on track for the week. Snow does a pretty good job at getting you behind on everything. We had a quick meeting with the Senior Couple in our area to teach them how to use a spreadsheet for the mission. It's pretty complicated... More finding. and then we had a lesson with one of our investigators, and then took her to institute. We had a pretty good institute class this week. There were 4 YSA from Sydney there! It was pretty awesome. That was about how we finished off the night. (there is a video that goes with this part about us teaching the Chinese Girls how to play Musical chairs.)(click the link to see the video)
Musical Chairs with our investigators
Friday: Weekly planning like usual. We had to stop at 11:00 to have a Skype Call with the Sackville Missionaries and teach them how to use the spreadsheet as well. Actually Elder Lerminez teaches everyone how to use it, because over the last 18 months I have become completely computer illiterate. We then had lunch with one of the members. And then back to work. Lot's of finding. We went to a members house for a cottage meeting that was mostly for older couples, but some of our investigators wanted to go, so the Senior Couple invited us to come along and help them understand what everyone was talking about that. That was our Friday.

Saturday: We played street hockey in the morning. I am actually getting proficient at Hockey! I'm going to have to find people to play with when I get home! We did lots of finding during the day, and then had another lesson with one of our investigators. Pretty quiet day.
Sunday: We got about 2 feet of snow on Saturday night, so we spent a lot of time on Sunday morning shovelling out. We shovelled so much snow! And then we were stuck at the church for most of the day, so we had to find some way to entertain ourselves. We found a wheelchair and played around with that for a while, and then Elder Beacham and I invented the Wheelchair Snowplough! (Click the links to watch the videos)
It's pretty great! We got to watch the World Wide Devotional from last week. President Nelson is pretty great!

so yeah.. That was pretty much our week... Nothing to exciting.

I hope you are all having a great week! Love you

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