to bring my journal so I'll do my best to keep things interesting.
Tuesday: Zone Training! This was over in Moncton, 3 hours away. We had a great training with
our Mission President over Skype (we do a lot on skype here) and the other missonaries' comments were really inspiring! They talked about being fully consecrated. Never looking back, and enduring steadfastly to the end! Even though I'm still green it helped me too! Briefly on the way back we stopped to
take a picture at the Confederation Bridge, it's beautiful, and one of the longest bridges in the world... I think.
Wednesday: We had a few lessons, some fell through. A lot of knocking. We got to go to a members
house and share a spiritual thought with them. I love the Aitken family, they are fantastic. Here's a Missionary Miracle! We were knocking (and I have to say this is not very effective, either people aren't home or they "have their own
religion" and wont even talk to us.) and it was my turn to knock. A girl opened the door and we introduced ourselves, I said, "would you allow us to share our message with you sometime?" And she said, "Sure." WHAT! I hardly knew what to
say next?! so I said, "Umm... Do you have time now?" and she said, "Yeah, come on in." How crazy is that!? So we went in and taught the first discussion with her and it was super cool. What a miracle.
Thursday: Bingo with the old folks, oh how I love it. Then we had some meetings and a few lessons and yeah. Typical day!
Friday: We had a lovely break of normalcy as the Relief Society women got together to eat lunch
and watch a re-broadcast of the Women's Conference. It was wonderful! But it
broke our weekly planning into two random bits so that took forever. And all of
our investigators cancelled there lessons. lame. The girl we knocked
into two days ago also texted us saying she wasn't interested after all. Sad
Saturday: We had another fun activity on Saturday. The Primary Easter Activity! We helped the
three primary kids, (two of which are our investigator's daughters) make birds
nests out of cereal, they had to butter up their hands and a 4 year old
boy ran around going "Squeesy fingers! squeesy fingers!" It was adorable. Then
they colored eggs, and Sister Sharp and I hid them outside. They had a small
hunt, and it was a lot of fun. I also got a wonderful package from my Mom which
was full of Easter Candy and things that I needed. I love her, she's the best!
Sunday. What a wonderful day. I gave the closing talk in Sacrament meeting about
The Resurrection. And I learned so much. That helped me to really appreciate the
holiday. I made Creamy Eggs on Toast for breakfast. A Smith Family tradition.
And it actually turned out okay! and we had a fantastic Easter dinner at the
DeVries families home. They were good enough to have us over. Sister Sharp and I
did go knocking and we found a bat on the screen door of someone's house! That
Ok Here are my fun/random stories. Sister Sharp and I were knocking one evening and it was
getting near sunset. And we were standing at a door when I hear this yowl and
some dark thing came rushing towards us! I totally jumped and screamed. It
was!!! a cat. a very friendly cat actually. But Sister Sharp laughed at me so much.
We were walking down the street and we see to guys, so Sister Sharp approaches them and we say
hi. They work for Bell-Alliant. And one of the guys goes, "You knock doors
right?" And we're like "yep" and so he goes, "Us too! YEAH!" and puts up both
his hands for high-fives. Haha so random. I don't even know.
Burger Love! There is a PEI "best burger" challenge called Burger Love. And today Sister Sharp and
I got to try to Sir. Isaacs A Burger. or something like that. Look up burgerlovepei.com I think It's
a crazy challenge (look it up mom and dad, you'll laugh!)
Well that was my week. I hope all of you are doing good. Don't forget to write!! ;) Missionary
work is a lot of fun, and it's definitely worth it. I love you all. Stay good,
don't do anything I wouldn't! (ok. well you don't have to be missionary strict,
but you know what I mean!)
