Well this week was a fun week. A few ups and downs, and a few gong shows. :) That's life as a missionary. :) It's only going to get crazier from here though with what we have going on the next couple of weeks. :)
Well we had pday. Did everything that we needed to and then did some shopping. We then went and played a little dodgeball. It's so much fun. We were in shorts that time so it was easier. We left and went downtown to try a few people and to fill up. We then had supper at Irmen's. We got a text and someone needed a blessing. That was interesting. Leanna is a semi LA in the other elders area. She texted us though to come. She is having some struggles and when we went, she wasn't telling us the full story that we found out later. Stupid drama. Leave the missionaries out of it. It was still a really good visit.
Well we tried by some potentials and then went to have lunch at the other elders' apartment. we then went on exchanges. I was with Elder Hentunen in my area. It was a fun exchange. We went tracting a bit. We tracted into Leila who is super awesome. She used to be Muslim, but doesn't really practice anymore. She was super interested in the idea of modern-day prophets. It was awesome. We then went and met with Grandma Jean. We need to get some fellowship there. We then tried some other potentials and tracted. We had supper at Fitzner's. All 4 of us. We also did some landmark burnings. It was E Hentunen's year last month and E Barber's 6 months next month and my 18 next month. we decided to just do it all at once. Burning the Fitzner way. :) It was fun. Also had a super cool lesson with them.
We had a lesson with Nahia. We/I couldn't get a hold of some one the night before to come, so we were trying hard to find some one to come in the morning. Finally got sister Landrum to come with. It was a decent lesson. We then had our interview. Well next week we have zone conference and so we are going to have some time in Edmonton. Elder Hentunen and I are going to go see Cody :) It's going to be great. We called him during our interview. He didn't seem to know who we were at first. Then I think it finally clicked. :) We then went back to our apartment and had lunch. After lunch we went and did mormon.org time. We then went and visited Bud and Dan. It was a cool visit. Well when we got back to the car there was a not so nice surprise waiting for us. We were park a little too long and there was a nice parking ticket and things in Fort McMurray aren't cheap. :P Well we then went to Boehme's for supper. They are pretty nice. After supper I gave the keys to Elder Barber. I'm not driving anymore. It's been 15 months. I need a break. It's an adjustment to not drive though. :) We then tried some potentials and tracted a bit.
We had District Meeting. It was really inspiring. We just read about faith in the scriptures and PMG and watched District videos. It was really cool what I was able to learn. We then went to lunch at this Schwarma place. It was ok. Our lesson fell through and then we went to Kidd's. helped out and visited with them. Bro Kidd is going to stop smoking next week. :) We then rushed back and had supper with Cahoon's. Dry. Not much conversation. We then went to LA Olsen's and had a good visit with them.
Well we tried some potentials and then went to Mark. He is an incredible guy. He is a brain cancer survivor. His story is incredible. He is the most positive person I've met. We then went home and had lunch. We then had Weekly Planning. We went and stopped by some potentials. We then had a lesson with Krystal and Amber, with Bro Aullenbach. It was an ok lesson. We then stopped by Roys'. They weren't home, but the Sousa's (?) let us in to share a quick message. We then went to the Simpsons. They are hilarious. they definitely need some help. We were going to take a late supper, but they fed us instead. :)
We tried potentials and tracted. We then had lunch. We visited Bud and Dan again, mostly to set up for next week for epic splits. We then went to Gregoire and met with Bro Rich. He is pretty cool. We then tried some potentials. We then went to the Roy's they were home and we were finally able to share the mousetrap lesson. It took a long time, but it was the perfect lesson that night. We then came home and had supper.
We had Ward Council. The other elder's investigator Gabriel is going to be baptized this week. We had church, then coordination. It was a lot of planning for the epic splits. The Zone leaders are coming up this week and we are going to do a 6 way split with some ward members on Tuesday and Wednesday night. It took a lot of work to plan it out, but we did it. We then ran home to change and had a quick lunch. We had a couple of lessons set up, but they fell through. We went tracted and met Papa though. Yes that's his name. He is from Ghana. Super excited to met again. We then had supper with Stewart's. It was the first time it was just Stewart's. It was pretty cool. We then tried by Lisa, but rescheduled. We then helped Bro Mackay move a couch really quick.
It was a really good week. Always seeing miracles. :D
