Things have been going pretty great this week! Nothing overly exciting, but I will try my hardest to think of something to tell you.
Monday: Pday. For some reason, pday seems to fly by a lot quicker than every other day of the week. We never seem to have enough time to get everything we want done accomplished. But, that's the way it goes. We found a wholesale place to go shopping at, so we bought a whole bunch of bulk candy... Ya know, that's just how missionaries roll! After pday, we had supper with a sweet older lady, and then finished off the day by going out knocking.
Tuesday: It was a pretty quiet day. We spent most of it out on the street trying to talk to some people. We drove all over Sydney trying to get in contact with some Less Active members, but nobody was around, so we lucked out a little bit on that one. We had a lesson with one of our investigators, and it went super well! She is doing fantastic! After the lesson we went out knocking for a little while.
Wednesday: We spent a lot of time at the church. We had a correlation meeting with our Branch President (because we don't currently have a Branch Mission Leader, so he is filling the role). After the correlations meeting, we had a member come to the church to whip up a meal for all 6 of the missionaries here. While he was cooking, we started the Worldwide Missionary Broadcast. It was a pretty good broadcast! I enjoyed it a lot! Afterwards, the meal was done cooking, so we all ate together. Not too long after that, we had Branch council, and that basically took up the rest of the night. The Zone Leaders showed up to do visits with the other companionship (the joys of not being a district leader :D haha)
Thursday: Lots of finding on Thursday. The Zone Leaders were in town, so there were three sets of missionaries working in Sydney instead of just two, so we had to get a little more creative about when and where we were going to be out working. Our lunch appointment had to cancel on us because she was sick, but another member stepped in and fed us :) We had a lesson with one of our investigators, and it was great! Like I said, she is doing fantastic!
Friday: Weekly planning. We had lunch with one of the members. Great family! We met one of our investigators at a cafe for hot chocolate and a lesson. That was fun. We got all of the plans made for her interview this Wednesday, and polished out all the details for her baptism. It's going to be great! We did a lot of finding, lots of street contacting and knocking. We finished up the night with supper at a member's home! They are fantastic people!
Saturday: Street Hockey in the morning! I love hockey.. I'm becoming more Canadian as we speak! Basically after hockey, we just spent the rest of the day finding, so I won't bore you with details.
Sunday: Happy Sabbath! Church was great. Choir was cut short because nobody came, so we sang through it once or twice and then called it a day. Gotta love branch choirs :P We had a really weird mix up, because we were supposed to have a mini district meeting in the afternoon to discuss what the Missionary Broadcast was about, but the other Elders got held up in Eskasoni, so they weren't able to make it on time. So we went to a lesson, and then it got rescheduled for just after our lesson, so not much actually got accomplished. Lots of waiting around, and rescheduling. But the meeting was great when we actually had it. Fun story, we were only able to have a quick lesson with our investigator, but in that time, she put herself on date for baptism at the end of February! So we now have 3 investigators working towards baptism! It's pretty awesome!
So yeah, that was pretty much my week! I hope everything is going well back with you guys!
Have a great week!
