Week #78 A Date?

Week 78: Well, this was an interesting week as it was the week I went on my second ever date. Stay tuned though as I let you know about it a sec.

Last Monday we had our norm p-day and one of our members came to play sports with us. After we were planning to drop by a referral so we asked him to come with us. We call the person who gave us the referral and they say to come by in like an hour. So there we are with an hour and a member and he looks at us in the car and ask if we have a dinner appointment and we say no, and then he repeats the question again and we're like yes? And he took us out and then we went to the home of the person being referred and the member we brought just happened to know her so that was pretty cool. After
we had FHE which was fun.

The next day was pretty good we taught a couple investigators including our Muslim friend and found another person to teach. Now this is where the date comes in... It was last week and we were talking to some people beside the university and we met two girls and we shared a message with them and asked if there would be a time that we could meet up and they said yeah and we exchanged numbers and set a time to meet next.
Tuesday which turned out to be valentines and we met at a coffee shop and shared the restoration with them. It went pretty well and we didn't actually buy them anything so I guess it wouldn't count by anyways that was fun.
Wednesday we had district meeting which we learned about having better contacts and sharing the message with others and we taught a couple people, including our prayer investigator.

Thursday was a blur and I can't really remember that much haha.

Friday we had a meeting in which accountability was discussed and met with our new convert who we have been struggling to help him consistently read the book of Mormon. We talked about it and he came up with the solution himself to listen to the soundtrack of it and now is doing well with his reading.

Saturday had an appointment at a coffee shop (why a coffee shop you ask? because its right by the university and student housing and a lot of YSA don't really like meeting at their homes.) but it fell through so we started to do companion study in a coffee shop, yes i know, Mormons and coffee is bad. And then the other guy we had scheduled for in 30 minutes at..... the same coffee shop haha showed up and we taught him and it went really well. While we were teaching him he was reading the pamphlet and read the whole thing while we were with him. He couldn't meet up during reading week though cause
he was going to Toronto and said after that he would meet with us and by then he will have read the whole thing and we're just like... man that's a long book, really? It was good though and his background is from Nigeria which made it better and he's quite the hipster. We also saw another investigator as well. We also went to the soup kitchen which was pretty fun.
Sunday we met for church in the Ajax chapel and met the trainee of a missionary from Lethbridge. Monday, yesterday. was family day so there was like no one out but we still taught a couple people. Anyways that's our week!
Hope you all have a great week and that the weather is hot like it is here.
