"Dear Elders and Sisters,
We are pleased to announce that we will have an all-Mission meeting in
Montreal at. One of the Quorum of the
Twelve will preside.
More details will follow."
WHAT?!?! YES!!! WE GET TO MEET AN APOSTLE!! Needless to say, my birthday week is going to flipping rock! Anyways...
THis week was good! We didn't do a whole ton. Wednesday we had District meeting, and Elder Pehrson and I did splits. Elder Pehrson started at the same time as myself, he is the Zone leader here for us now. We actually got to do splits a long time ago, back when I was in Alma and we were both in Quebec city for zone meeting. It was a great split back a year ago, and this split was great also! we taught our awesome friend, tried to crash a latino gathering in Pembroke (it was already over though, so no spanish parties for us... =[ ), we ate, we talked, we sang, we laughed, we cried... OK, maybe not cried... We then Un-Split on Thursday and had a great day with Elder Losee! Friday was a great day! We Went to the hospital to meet the Aunt of one of our memebers, who is not a member, and we had a lesson with her, and gave her a book of mormon, then we played Rummy-O, because she was bored to death in the hospital. It was great, she was supposed to come to church SUnday too, but the Doctors had an appointment with her, so she couldn't leave the hospital. Then, We went back and visisted her on Sunday, because our D.A. got cancelled, so we talked with her, and we talked with one of the other womne who was in the hosptal with her, and she asked us which church we were from, and then told us that she had moved to pembroke about 5 years ago (From a town 45 minutes away... not that big of a change), and hadn't decided on a church to go to since then. And the she told us that she would love to meet up with us and talk about Jesus and our church! So, we were like... YES! And then she told us that she lived on Everett street. And then we were like... Uh... WE LIVE ON EVERETT STREET! So, we have a new investigator! She is one of our neighbors! And then, Today, our member went to pick her Aunt up and this woman, Jennifer asked if she could have Bonnie's book of mormon, so they gave it to her and they (the member and Jennifer) exchanged phone numbers and addresses and stuff! It was super cool! We will teacher her as soon as she is out of the hospital! So back to Friday. We then had a bomb lesson with one of our less active members, Cassidy, who wants to come to church, but broke her foot, so she is working on that one, the lesson went so well! Spirit was there, Members were there, all in all, it rocked. Saturday we did our weekly planning. So, Elder Losee is a very visual person. He is very stimulated by colors and patterns and lights and flashy things. And that makes planning very very hard. He is all over the place. We have yet to have a good weekly plan. Until Saturday. So, I realized Elder Losee's visual learning style, so I was trying to think of how I could get him to only look at his planner. I wasn't coming up with any ideas, because everything I could think of was like, build a room, paint it white, put nothing in it, plan in there. Or things like "Blind him" But I don't think my mission president would have appreciate that. Or him... Or his parents... Or anyone. So that option was completly out. But then I remembered! Elder Losee has a huge aversion to seeing me naked (Which is a good thing. If it were any other way, I would be a little bit worried...), and I have a huge love for not wearing clothing, so I decided to plan. Naked. Honestly, that was the best planning session I have EVER had, not just with Elder Losee, but with any of my companions! He didn't take his eyes off his planner ONCE! We were completly done in 2 hours! Most missionaries it takes 3 hours to do, and with Elder Losee it was taking us about 5 hours, broken up over 2 days. And then Boom. Streamlined. I should be a business man or something. Work on Efficency-ing up peoples businesses! Right?! Anyways, We have a zone conference this week, Thursday. That sjhould be great! And then we have splits, and then it will be next week, and next week we get our transfer calls. Insane. Anyways, I shall talk to you later, have a great week!
