Dear Family and Friends,
It sounds like a lot of stuff is going on at home. That's too bad the Dickson's are moving. Tell them goodbye and that I will miss them all. That's great you got to hear Rick Doxey's farewell talk and Tragen's. Wish them Good Luck and tell them to keep the rules! Tell them and all my friends hello and to email you so you can get the letters to me since you can't mail letters to Canada right now. ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
We had a somewhat eventful week. We had a special training on Wednesday and they trained us on how to leave an effective 7-day challenge (which is where we challenge the members to have someone for us to teach in their home in the next 7 days). At the end of the training I had to go up in front of all the missionaries and President Archibald and role play what we just learned. Then we used the new 7 day challenge in a lesson the next day and they told us they would have someone for us to teach this Friday, so that's exciting and we also taught more of the Nzojibwami's friends on Saturday. Their names are Christian and Letari and they are from Burundi as well. We are meeting again with them this week and they went to church.
That's about all that's exciting that has been happening here. We went out to Morely the Indian reservation and met some of the members out there. I have been riding a bike and have lost 15 pounds. My belts don't fit any more!
I forgot my camera again, so I will send pictures of Cardston and Banff soon for you to see.
This week should be good, we are potentially going to be teaching 5 investigator lessons this week. Next week is transfers so I won't be able to email until Tuesday. I am guessing I will be transferred and I am a little sad. I am anxious to go see some other places though I have really loved it here. I will make sure to thank those who have helped me before I leave.
I love you all!
