Good Week

Hey mom,

Here was the week:

Thursday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every morning and then we got ready for zone conference and we went to the church and did some setting up and then we were asked to attend the district leaders meeting and it was good and we were there and able to know what president Keung was telling them, so I guess we can hold them accountable and as well just know what he us telling them so we are not in the dark about things. Then we started our zone conference and it was good and had some talks on some elders Christlike attributes and learned that way and then as well we got some information from president Keung and sister Keung. Then we had a panel with some ward leaders and we just talked about what we can do to better help them and as well to get a better understanding of what we can do better. Then after that we had lunch and that was quite good. Then I got a little bit of training on some cars but the APs pulled me out and asked if i had keys and i got them and we opened the kitchen and we were grabbing all that we can with water because there was some smoke comkng from the pine tree out near the church. So we grabbed the fire extinguisher and then put it out enough until the fire department came and took care of it. But then we came back and we talked about what we can do to better our focus and what that was. Then we got a training from the APs about our dinner appointments and how we can make thise even more effective. And man it was good and able learn a lot from there. Then we had a testimony meeting and this was the Manwearings last zone conference and able to hear them one more time. It was great. Then we mingled after and talked about what was happening and said my last goodbye to the Manwearings until I come home. Then we had our interviews and thise were great and then we talked about the zone and what president Keung can do to help. Then after that we had a small exchange with the APs and we had dinner with a great family and we just had a blast with them and also made it productive. And then we went out and did find for most of our evening and then some online prosoliting to finish it off.

Friday- So our morning was pretty weird and kinda not normal but it was ok we learned a lot of how we calm make things more productive. So we got ready for the day and then we had a daily planning session and then we talked with the APs and they helped us with a better and more effective way to have our weekly planning session and they went through it and then we did it the same way and as well asked questions along the way. But it was really good and to hear a lot from them. And learn as well. Then we had our time to get things ready and then we made lunch and then we went to our correlation meeting and talked about a presentation that we are giving on how we are here to help the members minister in a more holier way.
And we have a good plan for that. Then after that we came home and did some planning of things and we then went out to Jaffray and had our lesson with Lynda and Glen Falk and it was good and talked about learning and serving in the church and how this applies to them and how they can use this to there life. And then after that we drove to dinner and had a good meal with them this was good and had a great massage and what we can do to help grow the church. Then we drove to some areas and did some good old finding and that was great and just did that with the area and did not talk with lots of people because they all live so far apart which is a ridiculous. But who cares. Then we stopped by this former investigator and talked with him and he is a really good guy and able to meet him and is very religious and open with his mind on what we teach and what we can do to help him but itnis going to be a small progress but that is all we need. Then we drove home after that.

Saturday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we got going and then we got planning our day and then we had our personal study and that was really good and able to get some thoughts going and what I can learn and just really good. Then we had our companionship study and made plans for our lessons for that day. And then made some lunch and then we went into our daily contact and helping others. But then while we were doing that we got a knocking at our door and we thought who could this be and ny thought was the member that was fixing our pants. But when we opened the door it was 2 ladies from the Jehovah Witness church and they invite us to a meeting that they were having and we were like ok thanks then we told them who we are and they kinda got quite and then I invite them to General conference and they said ok thanks then they were on our way. But that is a first for another religious group to knock on the door. Then we finished what we were doing and we went and helped a Less Active move her friend and that was not bad at all and we helped there and it went pretty fast and then we shared some videos with the nonmembers and asked if we could come back and they said sure. And that was nice and then we drove back to our apartment and got changed into prosoliting clothes and was on our way. Did some online things to finish and then we had a dinner with a great family and shared a really good message and able to help them with anything they needed and it was a very solid appointment. Then we went out and did some finding and then we drove to the church and we did the other stuff of our weekly planning session and getting that done and that finished our night.

Sunday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we got ready and made plans and then we drove out to church and had a good time at church and we haf a really good sacrament meeting and felt the spirit there and able to help apply it to me. Then for our second hour we had the time to apply it to the way we are working with the members and what we can do to help and really felt like they understand what we are trying to do and help them as much as possible. Then after that we had to get going to Jaffray for church because it was our day and we caught the tail end of sacrament meeting and then had a good second hour of what we can do to apply the come follow me program. Then we finished church and had some time to talk with the members and then we had a companionship study and planned lessons out and then we drove and had our lesson with our investigators out here in Jaffray and had a really lesson and they have just felt and seen the gospel bless their lifes. Then we had dinner and that was a really good time and felt the spirit strong and able to do some good there.

And then we came home and we had lunch and then was right into our companionship study and making solid plans for our investigators and our appointments for today. And then we had some time to knock off some administrative stuff and get ourselves back in order because we have been doing things that keep us from that. Then we had some updates with the APs and gave them all the information they needed. Then after that we drove to our dinner and we went finding for a couple minutes and then we had a wonderful meal and a great purposeful message and then we had some more finding for a bit and then we drove and picked up our ward mission leader and we had our appointment with a less active that is kinda confusing to me but it will catch on but that was our day.

And made a good lunch after that and then we drove and stopped by our investigators and caught them home and we were able to talk for a bit and able to catch up for a bit and feel how they were doing. And then made some more stop bys that we had planned and then made our drive out to Jaffray and got into town and had our correlation meeting out there and that was nice and we then did some things with online stuff. And then went out and did some finding and went to dinner after that and had a good meal and to have a great message to help them be strong and also so they can better others. And then we had our lesson with our investigators out here and we just reviewed somethings that we thought would be good and we then went back into Cranbrook and did some things around there to finish our night.
