Week #60

Hey everyone!

Here is week 60 in a nutshell!

On Tuesday we finished emailing and went to a members house for dinner and she shared her conversion. You might not know it but sooo many people here in Ontario are converts. She had been searching her whole life and had started meeting members from the jehovahs witness' and one day she was meeting with them when two Mormon missionaries' came and knocked at her door while the jw's were there but she knew she had to talk to these two young men so she told them to come later and they did and then she went to church and as soon as she entered she knew it was the right church. Pretty cool. Her daughter was there and actually had two of her friends so they stayed and listened to the spiritual thought. Though I have been gone for over a year from everything I can say grade 10s are still like grade 10s. We then went and visited a less active 76 year old lady who threatened to throw me over her railing but it was ok and she said I had a gorgeous smile but then said I looked like a puppy. So I'm not really sure where we stand right now. haha.

The next day we had district meeting and then went to the upper floor of a superstore to teach an investigator. We talked about the Book of Mormon and how he had to read it and ask God if it was true to know for himself. That's what I like about this church is we don't try to convince people and make it super appealing to make them join but we reveal truth through light and invite people to ask God and find out for themselves. We literally share the message and it's up to you to find out if it's true. We also went and did service for a non member and later went and visited another investigator.

Thursday we went and helped out a member with moving some stuff. Elder Pollard got the short end of the stick and ended up shoveling some cat feces out of a litter box. "And I enjoyed every minute of it" he says.

Friday we were just running around everywhere so I'm not even going to highlight on that but just remembered something I gotta tell all of you. So Our meals were not going so great until this week and we had almost a meal everyday so we tried to make it better. We started taking fun pictures at some of our dinner appointments and posted them right by the dinner calendar and this week we got dinners every single day so now we are going to get fat. Be careful what you wish for!!

Saturday we met with a couple investigators. One which we might stop meeting with cause he is thinking it might not be for him cause his parents aren't for it.

On Sunday we had church and had a return missionary speak who just came from the BC mission which my buddy Elder McNabb serves in. We were able to find a new investigator and we got to take our 86 year old out to a dinner appointment with us who kept teasing me about my driving haha.

That's the week in a nutshell though. Thanks for cracking into it!
