I'm not sure if I'm ever going to get my feet underneath me! If you have ever seen the comic Calvin and Hobbs...yeah the one where he's running in the rain. That's exactly how I feel right now. We've got a thousand and one things going on right now, and I just might have a handle on one of them. It's just crazy, but it's crazy fun.
Early last week, we had a solid lesson with a couple that we barely started teaching. Rob met with missionaries back in Calgary, so he pretty well knows what we're going to say before we say it. But both Rob and Samantha have really been open, and they just get that they need to pray to know if the Restoration really did happen. It's been grand teaching them.
We've had a bunch of crazy meetings this week. One was on Wednesday with the Stake President and the other Stoon zone leaders. We were discussing the needs of the stake as far as missionary work goes and coordinating our efforts. It was a really great meeting. Pres Robertson is all over it! Another meeting we had was on Friday. It was a Missionary Leadership Council meeting. Yeah...really neat actually. But we had to drive to Regina on Thurs evening (about a 2 or 2 1/2 hr drive). Then we left by van Friday morning at 6:30 to go to a little place called Moosomin ( about a 2- 2 1/2 hr drive). Then we had the meeting about Pres Thomas vision and instruction for the mission. Yeah...now it's our responsibility to pass all the info on. (Sort of a hefty responsibility, eh?) But then we had to drive all the way back to Stoon. Saturday morning was rough!
We had a great lesson on Saturday. We went to meet with this guy from Nigeria named, Dipson and his roommates. But they weren't there, so Elder Kuhre called them and texted them. Then, we saw Dipson pull up to the house. He was in Regina (remember that 2 or 2 1/2 hour drive?), but he wanted to meet with us. So he came back. It was a great lesson, and his prayer was powerful. So great!
Then on Sunday, we were actually waiting for Dipson. He said he would be late. But he didn't show. But because we were in the foyer, we were able to greet this stranger who walked into the church. He came to Sunday school and had a junk load of questions. But unfortunately, he's not too interested at this time. But it was neat to be in the place that we needed to be!
I love you all! Thanks for all of your support! This gospel is true, and I'm so thankful for the blessings it brings into my life! Have a wonderful week!
