I hope you all had a great week! Our week went by super fast! On Tuesday, since it was our p-day and it just happened to be the fourth of July, President and Sister Shields invited all the missionaries over in the Brampton Zone for a BBQ. It was super fun, but I have to say, it was really weird being in normal clothes at President's house and seeing President walk around in slippers, hahaha. :)
On Wednesday, we had MLCs, which are always super good! I always love meetings because you're just called to repentance so much! You come away from the meeting with so much to work on that can help your area. One of the things we talked about was talking with everyone. President's been bringing that up frequently for the past few weeks, and it's been so cool to see the miracles that have come from it! After MLC, we had a lesson with an investigator named Trisha who we found through talking with everyone. Her dad recently got baptized in Nigeria, so now she's curious about the Church. We went over and we taught her about the Book of Mormon and it was really cool to see how much she wanted to understand the truth. We're going back this week and she wants the rest of her family to join in the lesson. :) (It's like talking with everyone is inspired or something!)
We have an investigator named Stacy who's preparing to be baptized this Saturday. We had a lesson with her a few days ago, and we brought a really nice lady from our ward with us. Stacy asked a question about understanding the Book of Mormon, and our member jumped in to answer. To understand how hilarious this was, you have to know that this member is super sweet, quiet, and kind...she's a really nice Japanese lady. So her answer was, "don't worry, Stacy. Sometimes it's freaking hard!" Sister Holmstead and I about died! It took everything we had to keep it together! It was so funny!
We met with Stacy after church again yesterday right after her baptismal interview. She was so happy! It was so neat to just see her joy that she's going to be able to enter into a covenant with God. I think that's one of my favourite parts of missionary work...seeing the joy the gospel brings to other people.
Well, it's officially the last week of the transfer! Honestly, we can't figure out how that happened! Time sure flies!
I Love You!
P.S. Next week, I have to start working on My Plan during computer time, so I probably won't have time to email most of you back, but I promise I'm not ignoring you, hahaha! :)
