Hey there everyone. This past week has been super fun and super crazy.
today was kinda a boring p-day. A lot of the zone was doing different
things so we really didn't get together. We ended up hanging out with
the ZL's and Spanish at Londonderry chapel. It was pretty boring. We
went with Spanish to Nobert's for supper. They are so great and fun to
visit. On the way out the front right tire was stuck in a hole. Well you
had Simms, Phillips, Shreeve and me. It wasn't too cold outside, so we
got it out in no time. It was pretty awesome. That was about all that
Well we went to the Food bank and did service
in the morning. It was a little weird. We got a ride with the ZL's but
they set up an appointment at 12. We didn't get there until like 10:30.
So we got a ride with CD1. We went to Kingsway mall for lunch. After
they dropped us off we went to see if we could get in with Sister
Allen's mom. Sis Allen said she wanted us to go visit her mom. Well so
far we just have awkward conversations through the window. Still haven't
gotten in. We headed back home and ran into Alosious who we were going
to go meet up with to play basketball at the church. It was a small
miracle. He had to get new glasses so couldn't make it. We met up with
the other guys and went to supper at Sister Forsyth's. It was a little
awkward. It was a supper with her, her roommate, her old roommate and
her old roommate's husband. Pretty strange. It was like having a YSA
dinner, but we are serving in a family ward. Strange for us. Oh well. We
then headed back home. We were supposed to be in by 6. So we played
chess, uno and nerts until we were bored. I went to bed the usual time. I
didn't stay up this year. Whatever.
I don't remember what we did that morning,
but at noon we met the other elders and played basketball at the church
with Alosious. We went and picked him up and walked to the church with
him. It was really great. We played some Basketball and then took him on
a tour of the church. He is really anxious to learn, but won't come to
church. We went to the Calverts at 3 for fondue. It was pretty good, but
really long and slow. Too many people to do fondue. There was probably
12 of us all having fondue. Gong Show. After that we went over to Bro.
Duckworth's. Crazy day.
We had district meeting. We then went to Red
Robin for district lunch. It was really good. I like being in the city
for that reason. We get to go to cool places for district lunch. We then
time. We then went to try and stop by Bro Guinard, but he wasn't home.
We ended up talking with his neighbor. He is a really cool guy. We then
stopped by some other people. We had supper on our own, because supper
was supposed to be a 6 but we had another appointment then so we
couldn't go. We went to David's. He is the LA that is into african
drumming and thai chi. Pretty interesting dude. We might go back
sometime next week and play some drums with him. It will be super fun.
We then went to Sis Hernandez. We were finally able to meet with her
since our many attempts since before Christmas have fallen through. It
was good. She got us a 4-in1 extendable backscratcher/pen/magnetic pick
up tool/ ball rolling massager. It is pretty cool. We've unscrewed the
backscratcher and put on the magnetic part as a pen lid and use it as a
cool extendable pen. She is so nice.
Well we had some time today, so we had to
clean up. We got a letter saying that the managers were going to come
inspect the apartment again so we had to clean up what they had asked
and just cleaned up period. It was good. We then had lunch and then did
weekly planning. Bro Bonnell came by around 5 and helped us take our
couch to Bro Duckworth. We finally got rid of it! It really opened up
our apartment. Now we just have to get rid of our coffee table and we'll
be good. We had supper at Branco's with everyone. All 6 of us. ZL's,
Spanish and us. Cramped but fun. We then had a lesson with Joe. We were
hoping to start teaching his sister, but she was kinda in and out. We
taught Joe about PMG and next week we are going to go back and Joe is
going to help us teach her lesson 1. It will be great for both of them.
Well we did some stop-bys in the morning. We
then had lunch. Went and stopped by Bro Guinard, not home again. We
were going to play basketball at the stake center with some LA and
investigator in Castledowns, but we had a lesson with Alosious instead.
We then went and had supper with Laubman's at 3. Sis Laubman's mother
isn't doing well so see had us over early so she could go back to the
hospital. We then stopped by a few people and then went to Spanish's
baptism of Marisela. Part member family in our ward. They have been
teaching her for a while and she was finally baptized. It was really
cool to go to. We were asked to come so Elder Phillips could play piano
and I could lead the music. We probably would have gone anyways. We
didn't really do much the rest of the night.
Well we were moved to the 9 o'clock church
time. It is different, we usually have studies before church, but now
it's going to be in the afternoon. Well we had a interesting experience
going to church. Pretty much I hit a pretty big snow pile going to
church and popped the tire. So after church we had to put the spare on
it. Then we had coordination. Bro Palmer wanted to talk to us after
coordination. We were there until 3. We then went to stop-by some one
that Barrhead called us about. They told us about a LA that was taken to
the hospital the night before for premature labor. She had her baby 6
weeks early. We went to stop by and couldn't find her. We had supper
with Hoag's and then went back to the Hospital. She was in under her
maiden name. She and the baby are doing well. We then went and picked up
the others and went to Palmers for P-day eve. They are super great.
Well that was our week. Gong show at most times. This week
might not be much better. Just craziness all around. Hopefully things
will settle down when transfers come next week.
