Week 70, 1/31/17

What's up hosers?  This week was an interesting one for sure.  We had a little bit of everything, ill try to pick out all the most important things so this email isnt years long:)   

Wednesday - Friday was a spiritual/training feast for us.  Wednesday there was a worldwide missionary broadcast and we got to listen to the head council of the missionary department of the church simply talk about the doctrine of Christ, teaching repentance and baptizing converts, and a bunch of other things, it was revelatory for me!  There were also some new changes in our schedule which allows us more free time in the morning and evenings, and more freedom to choose when in the day we do all our studies and things like that.  Its pretty sweet:). They also changed the key indicators we report, so we keep track of way less numbers now!   

Canadian donairs - kinda like a gyro on steriods - YUM!

Thursday we had an MLC with Elder Larry J. Echo Hawk of the seventy and got to receive some counsel from him and his wife, it was pretty cool.  Friday was spent mostly with the Echo Hawks as well, we had a mission tour!  We received some awesome training and heard some miraculous stories from Elder Echo Hawk.  I honestly can't really remember one simple thing that stood out to me from it, I just remember the thick spirit that was there the whole time.  It was intense!   

Saturday morning President told us we would be getting a third companion later in the day who is struggling and he would be working closely with for the next few days.  When he dropped him off the first thing he said was, "Party at Ellerslie!"... now we have 5 missionaries staying in this tiny house haha.  Its pretty impossible to do anything productive in my free time now but oh well.  I have had some good opportunities to practice becoming more patient is all I'm gonna say;) So we have been in a tripan since Saturday and it has been interesting for sure.  Sunday we got to teach Monica and Roycent again!! We were both looking forward to that appointment all week, and it went pretty well.  I've never had so much hope that someone would accept the gospel.... they are so cool!  Pray for them! 

                                          I've become a true "Canuck"

Yesterday we got F bombed at a couple times, tracted a lot, just the usual:)  Well I guess that covers my week.  I learned a lot of good lessons this week and felt the spirit so strong.  I know that Jesus Christ lives, this is His work and His gospel, and He leads us through living prophets.  Everyone do me a real big favour this week and cheer EXTRA HARD for my patriots!!! 💙

Weekly Scripture: Mosiah 3:19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father
