Another week

Hey Mom,

Here was the week:

Thursday- So this day is a little short because we did so much driving. So we got uo and did the normal routine that we do and then got ready and we did some studies and that was fun and then we got everything that we needed to our car that the elder that was transferring. Then we drove to my apartment and we dropped my things off and we drove out to Lethbridge and man that was a drive. So that took a good bit. Then we finally got into Lethbridge and man that was awesome and to see others and to catch up a little bit and discuss how the work is going. Then got our companions and Elder Wells is a funny dude and is from Utah a place called Wellsville in northern Utah. So it was a nice drive as we drove the other elders as well and Elder Rice one of my past companions is serving in the same town as me and it is great. Then we made our long journey home. We made a stop at the BC border sign and took some pictures then we drove into Jaffray and we were able to have dinner together and get to know each other and as well to catch up with some old memories. Then we got home and put things into other cars and we drove home and Elder Wells did some unpacking to finish our night.

Friday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then got ready and had a small planning session and then we drove to our Second councilors of the Bishopric and helped him move something really quick and help him get that done and we came back to our apartment and we got into our personal study after that and that was really good and was able to see somethings that as I read stick out to me. Then I also went through the Christlike attributes section and getting an idea of what attribute I want to work on this transfer. So we will see which one I pick. Then we had a short companionship study and we made plans for that. Then we had our weekly correlation with the Cranbrook ward and do all that fun stuff. We came home and ate some lunch. Then we drove to help a couple move and it was not to many things and it was great. Then we talked with and asked if the other elders could come by and share a message and they said yes so we gave the info to them and we changed and made our way to the church and we had a weekly planning session and getting things situated for Elder Wells and give him the run down of the area. It was great and then we did not finish to much then we had dinner with ourselves and then we drove back to the church and Elder Wells Skyped into a baptism and then the other elders were there and we discussed about member work and how we can help the ward with improving their work. Then we grabbed our board updates from our DLs and that is great and they are doing well and the zone is moving right along. That finished our night as well doing updates.

Saturday- So we got up and did the normal routine and we got ready and we had our normal planning session for our day and right into our personal study and it was great and with my Christlike attribute that I am working on the next 6 weeks is going to be diligence and I don't know why I selected it but we will see why at the end of the 6 weeks. Then Just going through reading and it is going great and then we had our companionship study and made plans for our day and it was great and then we had our lunch and then we for a good but we did some finding and it is great and being out and talking with people and then we drove to the church and changed into some service cloths and we went and helped a nonmember and man she is a wonderful person but a handful and we will leave it at that. Then we came back to the church and changed back into prosoliting and did some church invitations online and then we went out and see if we could stop by some potentials and not to many hkme which is weird for a Saturday. Then we had a dinner with a great family that has some struggling boys and we are doing as much as we can but that is what we can do. Then we Stopped by our investigators and see how they are doing and as well we invited them to church and then we had reports to finish our night off.

Sunday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we went and got ready and then we went inti Jaffray and had a Branch Council and talked about things there and that was nice and just being able to help them with things. Then we had church and it was great and had lots of good testimonies given. They had fast Sunday today since theg have Branch conference next week. But it was good then we had elders quorum and talked about President Nelson's talk in priesthood session and had a realy good talk about it and how we can apply it to us. Then we finished church and then we did some planning and then we drove to a members house for lunch and they were great and they are great people and support us in all that we do and then we changed and went and helped Lynda and Glen with some yard work and it was good then had a lesson right after and we then finished that and then went to a nonmembers house and looked at some service and we just got a look for what he needed to do. Then we drove to the church and we then changed and headed to our dinner and we got there and had a really good lesson and then we just felt good about it and what they needed and they are also just a solid family as well and they move well with us. Then we drove back into Cranbrook and had a really good time and introduced Elder Wells to some of the members there and then we just had a great time and then to finish our night off we had did some planning for our meeting that we have on Tuesday.

Monday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready and then some planning and then we jumped right into our personal study and that was great and able to feel the spirit and just to keep learning diligence in that and it felt great. Then we drove to the church and had our district meeting and had lots of good happen and then after that meeting we had our lunch and then we had a companionship study and then we hit the ground because we didn't have much time today to do that. But we did that until the APs called and we drove out for the last little bit and did some finding until we started our drive out to Calgary. That was our day there and short but that is what happens with driving nithing to exciting.

Tuesday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we got our things together and we drove to the church where we had our meeting as a leadership and it was great and had lots of good stuff to talk about especially since we had a very great month of April and how successful we were and how we can keep that on a constant basis and raise it higher. But we will see and had talked about things like finding and as well we did stuff with Area Book and how we are to use it on a constant basis. Then we did some other things with that meeting and got a lot out of it and we then had some time to catch up with other missionaries and then we drove home after that and that was our fun day. Just doing that and having time to get info and hiwnwe can best apply it to us as a zone. But I loved it.

But it feels great to be back to normal here and have things situated. But hope all is well and that you have a wonderful week.
