This week went flying by, and not too much to show for it. But we helped move some big furniture into a members home, and accidentally scratched up the walls of the home we were moving it out of. Thank goodness my companion did painting and such back home, so we putty'd and painted it and it looks good as new! (Is THIS where "the elder's quorum" gets their "skills" when helping people move???)
We've been teaching Stephanie, and her best friend Tia. They are both constantly progressing in the Gospel and it's great to have built relationships with them where we are friends, and not just missionary/investigator.
Well, this week I hit my 3 month mark...crazy how time flies. Of course, there are those moments when it feels like time stands still...but for the most part, time is going really quick.
We had a chance to go to Institute in Halifax again this week. I love going there and learning. What really caught my attention this time was this: while reading through the scriptures, put yourself in someone's position that you're reading about. So if you're reading in Nephi, put yourself in his shoes and try to see it from his view. Then the next time you read it again, look at it from someone else's point of view... EX: Lehi or Laman, etc. It really opens your eyes to new things that you would never think of before!
It was great to attend the YSA ward this week for church. It was nice to be around all people my own age again, but it also reminded me how much I love the family wards.
Stephanie has her baptism this coming Saturday! Exciting stuff, and we can't wait.
Other than that, not too much to mention. Sorry it's not very much stuff but it'll have to do! Mail has slowed down out here due to hurricane Sandy's impact on things...so i'm just finally getting mail now from October still. Woohoo!
Well, I love you all! Thanks for your constant love and support...it really means the world to me. Take care!
