Me shoes are still going strong, just going to buy some boots soon.
This past week was a lil stressful, Pugs and I we're worried and anxious about transfer calls. Sis Ahola, flatmate, calls us 'the old married couple' because we always have like service wars like washing the dishes or cooking, just anything! So it'd be sad to leave, but we both STAYED! YAY! We both pretty excited about this transfer, it's gan be good!
This week we taught Dean. He read in the Church Sunday meeting programme announcement about a youth temple trip and asked if he could go! He is so excited to have this experience and to do sacred ordinances for his ancestors. It's amazing that he even brought it up! So we are doing all we can to organise that for him(:
Lesley passed her xili 洗禮 baptism interview! We had Hedwig there to share her experience of baptism before the xili interview, which made Lesley 'looking forward to being drowned'. She calls baptism drowning cuz, to her, that's what it looks like haha but she does know what the promises and significance of baptism is(: and we, being focused on what will happen at transfer, forgot the baptismal record so we had to run home and run back! That's what you get for lacking in morning exercise bahaha just imagine it two people in skirts and big coats bustling down streets, pre cray.
Oh and we got TWO surprise calls! Two potentials this week who we haven't contacted in a while, rang us. They wanted to come to Church with us! Last Sunday was the Primary children's programme so it was a great Church service to come to. It was also a Young Single Adult munch and Mingle. So grateful for the munch and mingle cuz our recent church converts, church investigators and potential church investigators got to integrate with the local church ward members and other students! Perfect activity! And Sis Pugs and I made sure to set the chinese in between the YSAs to start friendships(:
A new church investigator we have is Rui Xi, she's got a few Chinese friends in the States who became members of the Church in America and they have been telling her about it. And she is very interested cuz of the influence of her friends. Power of being a Christlike example. She's got an open schedule and loves to go to church activities and met some YSA at the Munch and Mingle and wants to go to a YSA Convention!
I love local church ward/missionary coordinations! Bro Grainger is a man who magnifies his church calling! He's the assistant Ward Mission Leader but so helpful, he's giving us great ideas, support, how to get the local church ward more involved. This is a great change for us, we're not used to is. He writes down all that we need help with and sends it to the Bishop. This area will be blooming!
Oh and last Preparation day, we went to Castleton! An hour away on the bus! Great adventures, we climbed a huge hill and saw loads of vistas and sheep!
