10-05-2015 Email from Elder Anderson (Thunder Bay, Canada)

Hey everyone! I had an awesome week. General Conference was absolutely amazing. Back home I took it for granted.. You really do get what you put into it.

Monday: we were at our church for most of the day! We played basketball and soccer and it was really fun! Then we tried to go see some people but none of them were home..

Tuesday: We we to our LandLords house to shower because he offered to let us. Man was his house sick. It was the nicest house I have seen in Thunder Bay, I showered in his shower that was like as big as a bedroom it had multiple shower heads and it was so awesome. Hahaha! Then we went to a member in our wards house and helped him move a treadmill, then had a dinner and was there for a while. They are a really cool family I really like them!

Wednesday: We had district meeting with Elder Long as our new district leader. It was good, but there were a few disagreements between him and his companion haha! Then a couple missionary from Duluth came up
to inspect our place and they gave me my driving card that I need. SO I CAN FINALLY DRIVE YAY! They took us out to Apple Bees and that was good. Haha since I have had my driving privileges I have been driving everywhere.

Thursday: In the Morning we got a call from a less active member asking us to give her a blessing. So we went over there and she chose me to do the anointing. I was so nervous, but the other Elders said I did good. So i was happy I did that!

Friday: WEEKLY PLANNING DAY...­čśÉ We planned for a few hours and that  was not fun at all. But it was good to talk about what we need to do and how we are going to use our members in our lessons. Then we had
dinner with a family named the Holdens and they are so cool! They have so many animals and its pretty fun to be there! Then we played some basketball at the church. I always love that!

Saturday: We woke up did our daily things and then Elder Hawkes reminded me that at a store called "Sports Chek" They have a limited time thing where when you are about to purchase something they give you the opportunity to choose from like 50 coupons and then they take it and scratch the back of it and then it tells you what percent you get off. So I was buying my winter coat that was not cheap and the coupon I picked was the 50% off card. I guess that happens 1/1,500 coupons so it was so rare. Then they told me to go get more stuff and
it will all be 50% off. So I was STOKED!! So I got all my winter stuff for 50% off haha. But more importantly General Conference happened. I loved it! I really like President Eyring's talk in the Priesthood session. I like the story about the Elders Quorum President.

Sunday: We had more General Conference which made me so happy. It was like waking up on Christmas :) I got so much out of these talks. One of my favorites was Devin G. Durrant's about "Ponderizing"  I am going to take his advice and do the Scripture every week. I really liked that! I was very happy with the 3 new apostles. They all are awesome! I cannot wait to hear more from them.

We really are so blessed to have Prophets and Apostles on the Earth today. I know that they are called by God and are his servants. I love hearing from them and it kinda sucks that we have to wait another 6 months to hear from them again. But it will be so worth it. I love them! They help so much. I am more motivated as a missionary.

I love you all so much. Have the best week! Thanks for all the letters and the emails!

Elder Anderson
