Week 50

Heeeey Everyone!

Its Elder Toly again reporting in for another great blog sesh. I also just want to thank you all for checking out some of my life by taking 5 minutes of your life to do it haha. This was a pretty good week here in the great farming community of Kawartha Lakes. The weather has been super hot still but we were also blessed with a couple cooler days as well which was stupendous. On Tuesday we had preparation day in which we went to Oshawa for sports there. It was super fun and I gotta play a couple games of Ping Pong which I have not gotten to do for a while. It was great being with a large group of missionaries because we are so isolated up more in the northern part of the zone. We also went to an all you can eat Chinese buffet place called the Mandarin which is a huge staple here in Ontario. It was good.

On Wednesday we went to all you can eat sushi which was great. We also met with one of our investigators who has a baptismal date. We were planning on sharing a lesson with him when circumstances changed what we shared because he was super stressed with stuff going on in his life so we read through the scriptures instead. We read 3 Nephi chapter 11 which tells of Christ coming to the Americas. It went very well and at the end he said his first prayer with us and in it, gave thanks for the peace he had from reading and from the message. Something super cool. Unfortunately we were not able to meet with another one of our investigators with a baptismal dates, but hey, its all good.

Thursday we had a pretty good day. We went to an investigator we had found earlier that week and instead of teaching him, he wanted us to teach his children while he was in the other room. So we were sitting there with 4 kids fro ages 2 or 3 to 8 years old haha so we taught the first message, the restoration and then showed them for kids where they can watch some videos. Cute kids, but it was crazy and unexpected haha. Later that night we went and had dinner at moma Doerings home and from there did some finding then drove to the zone leaders place in Oshawa to stay the night because the next day we were to have zone council.

Friday morning for exercise we went over to a skate park with the zone leaders and some scooters and had some fun and took some awesome photos which I still need to get from one of them. The meeting was excellent and we had a good time and had a couple good zone photos. Afterwards we went on exchanges and Elder Anderson from Utah (who woulda guessed eh???) came to Lindsay. We met with a few returning members and our new convert Marie. We also drove out to a member family in the middle of nowhere and had dinner which was nice. Saturday we dropped by a couple people including a member Who I hadn't met yet due to being less active but it was good. We shared a message on Faith which was great and turned into a swell discussion.

Sunday we had fast and testimony meeting and I got up to bear my testimony. Most of you probably won't remember me ever bearing my testimony in a meeting like that because I almost never did. Regardless it felt good. If you have a testimony, share it cause you never know who needs it.

Thats pretty much the week in a nutshell, but hope yours is even better. Also just wanted to give my dad a shout cause he recently just got called to serve in a Ysa ward bishopric.

Have a swell week!
