11-23-15 4 MONTHS (Thunder Bay, ON Canada)


Hello Everyone!! Another week has gone by. They just go faster and faster as I go haha! This week was super awesome, we went to Duluth for a Zone Training with President Forbes.

Tuesday: We did our weekly visit with a recent convert Brian Finlayson. He is super cool! I really love him a lot he is so nice to us missionaries. He brings us groceries like everyday and drops them off on our front porch! Man, what a guy he is. Then we drove like 40 minutes outside of town to see a less active member with one of the other members in the ward. We found her house, we did not teach her but it was really good to see her again, because she has not been to church since like the first few weeks I was here. After that we went out to eat with a soon to be missionary named Greg Mulzer. He is super cool! He will be serving in the Anaheim California Mission. He leaves December 30th, super stoked for him!

Wednesday: We did our Mormon.org time at the library to start off the day, then we taught a less active, Bro Helps. Then at about 6:00 that night we drove down to Duluth. I drove the whole way (4 Hours) it was raining and it was hard to see, but we got there safely. 

Thursday: It was Zone P day, it was a really awesome day. I got to see my MTC companion so that was exciting. What we did for the activities was we played Hungry Hungry Hippos human style. Haha it is hard to explain but it was really fun! Then we went bowling and shopping. The Duluth mall is so sick and I love going there. At the Zone Leaders apartment building they have a Sauna. I had never been in one, so we all went in there. It was soooooo hot! I have never sweat like that before, but it was pretty cool. Hahaha!

Friday: We had Zone Training with President Forbes. We talked a lot about having back up plans always. I really hate planning, but it was really good to get a good training on it. We talked about the new Christmas Initiative " A Savior is Born " Video. It is super good, I encourage you to go look at it on LDS.org. Then we drove home and went to bed pretty much, we were super tired. Lots of Elders that I have gotten to know very well are leaving.. It makes me really sad. Really they were such good examples to me and I look up to them a lot.

Saturday: We had lots of plans going into the day, but were not able to accomplish a lot of them. We did lots of paper work and really organized our area book. Then a member brought us some Pizza it was really good. Then we had companionship inventory, hahah that is always interesting. 

Sunday: We went to church, then we ate at Bishop's house. That is always fun, hahah the bishops wife is so funny!! Then we taught a lesson to a guy named Kashuik, it went really well, we taught the ten commandments, he said that he will be able to make it to church this Sunday so that makes me really happy! 

I have been out 4 months now, that is honestly crazy hahah! But I am doing pretty good, I am much more comfortable teaching. I am improving everyday. We are still doing Insanity so that is good! I see improvements each day! I have some good pictures for the week :)
