A really weird week

Hey mom,

Here was the interesting week:

Thursday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then we got ready and did some planning our day and right into our studies. Personal study was good and learned lots of good things and what I can keep applying to myself. Then the end our personal study our mission president calls and elder Urling is going to be going to Calgary and he leaves tomorrow. We were both in shock and what was happening but we did our companionship study and then the end our study we got a call from the APs and we planned what was going to happen tomorrow. Then we had some lunch and that was nice. Then I got our zones updates while my companion was packing. Then we got done with those and then we had some planning with the other elders since I will be staying with them for a good week. Man it is weird. But we got our schedule figured out and then we drove to the church where we did some weekly planning and got mostly through the people we are teaching and then we had a phone call lesson and it was good and able to help her and get her the missionaries to her. Then we went and finished our planning of our people we were teaching. Then we drove over to the hospital and we were going to give someone a blessing but some things we weren't able to do it because of the conditions. But we then went back to the church and we finished our weekly planning for once on our day of planning. Then we went out and we did some finding and talked with some people and got a few potentials but we will see what happens. Then we went to our dinner and that was a good dinner and had a blast to be with them and to be able to help them with their sharing the gospel. But we did a few more finding stops and then we went to the church and did some online prosoliting and I did some computer things and while I was doing that my companion called some people to say goodbye. Then called it a night after that.

Friday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready and we did the daily planning after all that. So for personal study it was good read through the Book of Mormon and getting to the point of Abinadie. Then to do for the rest of my study I did some things in preach my gospel. We had our companionship study after that and it was good and learned from each other one last time and then had some lunch and elder Urling finished packing all his stuff. So we went to downtown and had some contacting time and that was fun and headed to our Bishops house and said Urlings last goodbye and then headed to the church and did some things online and then the APs got here and we put all our things into their car and we drove up and met the other elders that I will be staying with and said our goodbye for now and then we did some contacting for a little bit and then we drove back to Cranbrook after that and grabbed some dinner after that and called it a night. But here starts our fun journey for a couple days until I get my companion.

Saturday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and then got ready and made some plans for it as well and then we drove to the church and the elders had a correlation meeting and did that and I did my report that I needed to do and get out. Then we had an appointment and that was good and it went swell and helped her with some concerns but we will see what happens. Then we changed and then went to Jaffray and helped out with a service we did there and did some cooking for the service and able to help there as much as we can but we are doing a little thing. Then we had to get going and made our way back into Cranbrook and did some contacting for a bit and had a lesson with an inactive member and that was good and able to help him with things that are bothering him and just being there to love him. Then we had an amazing dinner with a great family and able to hear some great experiences with their ministering efforts and just glad to see some effort from the ward. Then we had some finding time and thag was good and just to get out there and do some finding and spread the good news of God. Then to finish our night we visited with a former investigator and he was a guy and was able to help him as much with questions but he said to come in the fall so I hope the elders do stop by in the future. But a solid way to end our night.

Sunday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready for it and then we got our things and made our way to church and we went to my ward first and then from there we had a really good service and all that fun stuff. Then had a really good Sunday school lesson that was prepared and then my church ended then I did some mingling then I poped into the other wards service and that was fun and had a good church meeting with the other elders. Then we drove back to the apartment and changed and went back to the church and did our studies outside and that was great and able to catch up in reading and with other things. Then we finished our wonderful study and we headed to our dinner and that was a really good meal that we had and it felt really good and to have a great meal on Easter and all that fun stuff and to be able to have some company and talk about things. Then to go for the rest of our night all that we did was finding and stopping by people and it was good but that is what we planned to do. Then then the very last thing we did was a survey for the church about the mission.

Monday- So we got up and did the normal routine that we do every day and got ready for it and made some good plans as well. Then made our way to the church and had our personal study there and it was good able to do some reading and to learn from that and apply it to how I feel when I read it. Then we had our wonderful district meeting talked about some plans of how we can do better as missionaries and it was over all a good district meeting we had. Then we got lunch and made our way to an appointment that we had in a town called Kimberly. It was a good lesson and helped them with what they needed to come unto Jesus Christ and they seem to be doing well. Then we drove and changed into our service clothes and helped out a lady that needed help with some trash removal so we helped her out there. Then we drove back to Cranbrook and we helped a lady do some painting and that was nice and it has been a while since I have done some painting. But I enjoyed it. Then we changed and made our way to the dinner area and did some finding around there and did not talk to many people they were not home so we kept going. We had our dinner next with a wonderful family and we did some come follow me and it was good and just had a blast. We then drove to an area and dropped off some stuff and then had some finding around that area where we dropped off things and we talked with a few people and had some meaningful conversation with them. But then to end our night we drove back to Cranbrook.

Tuesday- So today was good and we had the usual morning routine and then we got ready and did some planning and then we had a personal study and it was good mostly going through my reading and getting a lot out of it. Then we had a companionship study and that was great and we were able plan out our lessons and then we had lunch and then we did our normal things and then we did some online stuff and we made our drive out to Jaffray and had our correlation meeting and it was just a good thing to have and have the branch know what we are doing. Then we had a lesson with our recent converts and then we talked about some questions and it was great to have. Then we drove back into Cranbrook and we went out and did some finding and then we went and drove to eat some dinner and then we hit the grind hard and then we had a lesson with the other elders investigators and it was a interseting lesson and then we drove home to finish our day and then we got transfer calls and my new companion is Elder Wells and the whole zone changed.

But a good/interesting week but we saw good in it but thanks for all that you do and thanks for the support and have a great week.

Elder Orton
