Week 38 - Merry Christmas!

4:31 PM Posted by Janette , No comments

This week has been a whirlwind!! We have been busily insane, but it has been really fun. This whole week has been crazy running around. Tuesday was our only real proselyting day, and we got a lot of work done. The rest of the week was spent getting everything ready for our chapel open house which was yesterday and continues on today. It has been really fun so far, hopefully we are able to get some good community involvement, and some new people to teach.

Then on Thursday, to add to all the craziness that was going on, President Merrill decided that we were going to have zone conference. (Actually, I knew about it for a while, but really hadn't prepared for it). So off we went to East London, getting lost in the CBD, and what not, then having an awesome zone conference on Friday. Our km's were way high (we have to stay under 500 km/week) and last week we were at 700 something and this week we were at like 650 something. It is crazy how much we are in exile. So close, yet SO far away from anybody else. But it is fun and I like it. Then, I have to tell you, since I didn't before. Elder Cook was awesome!!! He talked about being shepherds, and not sheep-headers, and it was a really amazing, spirit filled day. Then in gospel doctrine, the lesson was on Ezekiel 34, which also talked about being a shepherd, and then priesthood, Elder Cook taught about the roles and responsibilities of the priesthood, which was really cool. Then afterwards, we went over to the Wheelers for Brunch with Elder and Sister Cook, President and Sister Thomas (Mission Presidency), and President and Sister Wheeler, and us! It was fun to get to sup with a general authority, and to associate with him.

As for the other random things from Emails,
Uncle Ben, It was good to hear from you and how your family is doing! And Merry Christmas!!
Mom, yes, I was called as a District Leader in August, and have been one since then.

Merry Christmas,
I Love you all!!!
