Yeah this week has been good. Everything seems to have smoothed over with Alyshia she says she isn't mad but we haven't had a lesson with her since her baptism. She is actively coming to church, and has found names dating back to like the 1600s on family history, so that is all good...Still think she is mad at us. I love that our family is so supportive. Mom you are always there for any graduation so it seems. Did Jeff get a Quilt? :) Shawn and Randy will soon be official that is really cool. Glad Keeg still finds a little time for Warcraft. Does Kade sleep downstairs or up? If I was home I would get you a tramp mom. Hopefully we don't just buy the net again. I will be calling on the 8th, not sure on the time, probably from 5-10 your time. It just depends on when we can get the computers. Sorry I don't have more details - Mother's Day snuck up on me, like I just realized on the email today :) Thanks for including the phone numbers (haha) just in case. I love you Mom.
We had some cool stuff happen this week. I am back to it being a pretty good week this week. It feels nice to say that again.
We had MLC this week which usually takes place at the mission home. We were able to instead go to a local mountain, (more of a hill) and have a hike up to the top (more of a nature walk). It consisted of us being able to have a lot of spiritual self-reflection time and then at the top we raised a banner, filled it with scriptures and sang High on the Mountain Top. We had the opportunity to do the same thing again and take a zone through the journey the next day. It was an awesome experience and it was the best Zone Training I have ever prepared. We included heaps of games up the mountain so it was a lot of fun but still really spiritual. We were able to really compare our mission to the mountain. Something President wanted us to focus on was really the fact that our year mark isn't the top, our 18 month mark isn't either, the top of our mission should be the end. It was something I am really focusing on and the mission seems to still be uphill that's for sure.
We had a couple of miracles for the week when two really keen investigators came to our ward. We also had a lesson with Ohine who came last week. This past week we were able to find and teach 6 new investigators which iI haven't ever done before in one week my entire mission. Only 2 of them were YSA for our area but still. It is really cool to see the other missionaries light up when we find and investigator and then give it to them. We are so luck to serve in this area and I am so excited that I am still here. Some good things are going to happen this transfer.
Sorry it was kind of a boring email this week. We don't have to much time. I love you all though and thanks for all the support and prayers and stuff.
P.S. Sorry I don't actually have a picture at the top yet. Hopefully I can send it next week. I just need to get it from someone.
