Crazy Rain!

So the weather this week has been really crazy! It's been raining SO much! On Tuesday, we thought we were low on our allotted k's, so we were walking. It was just pouring! We got soaked! Unfortunately, we found out it was for no reason cause we're not low on k's at all! Yeah, there's been several instances so far this transfer that have made me feel really stupid! We even were walking all over on Thursday. We were exhausted!

We had specialized training in Saskatoon this Wednesday, so we drove up on Tuesday evening. The training as all about finding. It kinda made me feel like dirt cause I'm really not confident in my finding abilities. Of course during practice, Pres. and Sis Paulson were evaluating Elder Call and I. Yeah...I felt stupid! But I'm starting to see a little progress, so there's hope. I was also able to see Elder Zohner again. That was pretty fun!

We went on exchanges with the assistants Tuesday morning, and we found a new investigator! His name is Shane. He's into philosophy, so he's a thinker. He's really solid. However, he may be a ysa turnover. Oh, well.

I also went on exchanges on Saturday with the zone leaders. I stayed in their area, so I went street contacting for the first time. I was absolutely terrified! The first couple contacts were really rocky, but afterwards, it went better than I thought it could. I actually like it more than tracting. I learned a bunch about finding, so it was really helpful.

It was also Stake Conference this weekend. 4 other elders and I had to sing at the adult session on Sat night. I wasn't really nervous at all because of the size of the group (both our singing group and how small the audience was!). Plus I just had to sing melody. I think it actually sounded pretty good! We sang 'Be Still my Soul'... A Capella. Yeah.

Kerry's baptismal interview is coming up. She's pretty funny. She likes to tease, but I feel like she's ready. Elder Call was really excited cause yesterday she said that she had forgotten the questions she had when they first started teaching her. I guess she had some pretty major concerns about like polygamy and stuff. So, yeah, I'm glad I didn't have to deal with that. I guess Elder Call and Elder Brower just shelved her concerns, and she resolved them herself! That's the way it's supposed to be.

So for the food section, we ate at Wing World in Saskatoon. Yeah, I ate another deep fried mars bar. I had to eat a celery stick to get out of the food coma! And at a meal appointment yesterday, I had some killer hot sauce! It was called "Colon Blow". It was pretty bad. It doesn't help that my tolerance is way low cause there's zero spicy food in Canada.

Well, I love you all! I hope that everyone has a fantastic week!

Elder C. Lyons
