Another week

Here was the good week:

Thursday- So we got up and got ready and taught seminary and that was good and just happy to be there and learn with the youth. But then after we finished seminary we drove home and we carried out the morning and then into our planning session for our day. We went into studies after that and personal study was great. I was able to read and do some catch up on that and as well do some studies for our lesson we were teaching today. We then went into our companionship study and made some good plans for our lessons. Then made lunch and went to the church and did some updates with the elders out in Trail. So we got those and then we did some weekly planning with them and we helped them how the mission wants to plan and help them see the full potential in the way we want to do it. It was great. We then had an appointment to go to and we had a good lesson on baptism and the priesthood and how she was feeling about this. Then we finished our appointment and we then came back to the church and we did some more planning and trying to pump it out. Then had another appointment and that did not go through. So we had a young man with us and we were sitting in the car and we talked about the mission life and just how that feels and just his questions. Then we drove back to the church and we finished our planning for our people. And we had dinner and had a great time there and able to help them and also to feel the spirit as we shared our message. We had some time after that to go and do some finding and that took us all the way to our appointment with our investigators from Jamaica and it was a good lesson and had the spirit there and one of them is really soild and able to feel the spirit and get him ready for the step towards Christ. But had a good lesson then called it a night after that.

Friday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we got ready and had some good plans for our day and right into our personal study. I read the scriptures and as well a conference talk and had a great feeling about it and I learned a lot from it. Then we had our companionship study and made some plans for lessons that we were teaching out in Jaffray but we had a correlation meeting after that and it was a great meeting there and to able to talk about the work in Cranbrook and what the ward can do to support us in our efforts. Then we had lunch after that and did some contacting in downtown Cranbrook. And that was good but we then did that for a while then we drove out to Jaffray and we got there and we went to the church and we finished up our weekly planning session and that is always good. Then did some online prosoliting and having that way to find more people which is nice. Then we went out and did some finding and meeting people that way. Then into our dinner appointment where we jad our recent converts come and we shared a message with them and they are just so grand and glad that they made this step. Then we stopped by this one former investigator and we had a really good talk about what we do and it was really good to have that and to see where the mom lays at and what we can do to help. But good conversation we had. Then we drive home to finish the night.

We then had a companionship study and we had some plans for lessons with our day and then we went and got some lunch after that and we went to the church and watched a video that we need to watch before a date in May. But we had a meeting after that and was able to have it with all the Ward Mission Leaders in the stake. Then after our meeting we had some time to go out and find and then we went and did some online prosoliting after that and we went back out again and did more finding. Then went back to the church and we changed into our suits and then we helped with the dinner that they put on for the adults and that was great and some good food. As well got to see some members from my first area which was cool and had a blast doing that. Then we had the adult session there and it was really good and shared really good info about the come follow me program and how we can better use it. Then we came home and did a review and called it a night.

But then we drove and stopped by a investigator and he was not home but we then went to church and we had stake conference and it was great I got to see more members from my first area which was nice and they were amazed to see me again but still had a great time. Then we had the meeting start. It was a really good meeting on the Savior and his love for all of us. Then finished that meeting and then we drove back to the apartment and had our lunch.

Then we went out and did some finding and talk with people and then we had some dinner and that was good and then we were going to have a Facebook lesson with a lady in Mexico and we were able to send a referral to some elders there and to teach her in Spanish instead of our English. Then that was good and we went to our investigators house and had a good lesson with them and we read 3 Nephi 11 and they liked it and seemed to enjoy it. Also one of our investigators read and he gave a good prayer. Then we finished our night with a call woth the leadership in the mission talking about the goals for the month and then some other things that is going on.

Then we had a companionship study and made plans for our lessons and they were good plans for them to come unto our savior. We had our lunch after that. Then we went downtown and we started and a YSA age guy stated that we were harassing people but we got talking with him and then we left on a good note. But we did some contacting here and then made our way to Jaffray and had our correlation meeting and that was good and able to help they ward understand where we are going and how they can help. But we then did some online prosoliting and as well watching videos that need to be viewed by a certain time. But it was good. Then had an appointment with a member family that the husband is struggling but had a good appointment and then we drove and did some good finding and then we had our dinner and man that was a good dinner and then as well we taught the new member lessons to our recent converts and then made our drive back to Cranbrook and there we had one last appointment and that was slightly ok. It for sure could have gone better but we learn and know now. But a good way to end our night.
