Hey yall! How's life?
Mine is great! ha! Man my time here in Whitehorse has passed by far too quickly! The 5 weeks since this last transfer started have felt like 2 weeks. Time flies when you're having fun and doin' what you're supposed to! Those of you who have served missions know what I'm talkin' about. This past Monday we played basketball since Elder Johnson's ankle was healed up. We have gotten a few people to consistently play with us. It's a lot of fun!
Tuesday we had 2 suppers! We went to the Thompson's for supper. I will miss the suppers at their home. She is a really awesome cook! It was Sahil's birthday so we went to Boston Pizza and ate there and had a fun time and then went to their house and had cake and ice cream. We then played a game or 2 with him and then we had to go home.
Wednesday we were able to go teach Brenda again with Pres. Little. It was an awesome lesson! Sometimes people teach me without knowing it. Brenda is an awesome woman. She lost her husband and son on separate occasions and she isn't mad about anything. She is 69 and does more than most people ever do in a day. We went around and saw some more people and we had supper at the McDonald's and said goodbye to Bro. McDonald. He left for Saskatchewan on Thursday morning and won't be back til January some time. I will miss him. He is a very humble man with a great heart for others. Then we went to David and Xenia's for the rest of the night visiting since they were leaving on Friday morning for California and vacation! I know they are enjoying themselves right now! They are awesome and I will definitely miss them a lot.
Thursday we had to go and be at the church for a few hours for the nativity display there. We helped set up for it everyday earlier in the week. It was a long process.
Friday we went on a Bus trip with the people at Copper Ridge Place and watched the Nutcracker with them. I have never seen it before and thought it was alright. Friday night we had a potluck at the church and lots of people came and looked at the nativity display and watched videos and ate. It was pretty cool.
Saturday we did service at the MacBride Museum and did a whole lot of work. Saturday night we went and helped take everything down from the nativity. We went to the Peterson's for a missionary meeting.
Sunday we had church! surprise! Haha it was really good! We had lunch at the Guevera's and then supper at the Peterson's.
Have a great week!
That's about all that happened this week. Hope you enjoy the pics!
