Busy Busy - Work and Play

Weeks are a serious blur! When people ask me what we did the previous day I have to check my planner because I have NO idea. I think it is part of being a missionary. The good memory I used to have is completely gone!

This week was good, the parts that I can remember anyway. :) We taught a family who then became our new investigators. They are from Colombia and they are a beautiful family! The dad says he is liking the Book of Mormon, we will be teaching them tomorrow.

Sister Norell and me - "I feel like we look alike!" haha

Sunday was Fast Sunday and we did a Ward Fast for missionary work. (That was Sister Norell's idea, she is brilliant!) It was really good, I think it gave everyone a purpose to fast and it made the testimony meeting a lot more meaningful because people bore their testimonies on what they knew to be true and not random stories (we all have been in those fast and testimony meetings... -_-)

Monday was the Civic Holiday, which meant libraries were closed so thus why P-day is today (Tuesday). Yesterday was also the ward picnic which was SO fun! The morning started off with some baseball, where I discovered that I am not actually that bad at baseball. Who knew?! 22 years of wasted talent. haha It was fun.

At one point I was sitting out in the outfield looking at everyone and I thought to myself, "I am in Ontario, Canada, on a mission, with people I met 11 weeks ago, and I feel like I am at home and this is right where I need to be." I love those moments. Most of the time I still can't believe I am on a mission, I'm not sure if it will ever hit me.

After baseball was lunch, and after lunch were the little kid carnival games and then after that came the pie eating contest... I didn't really want to do it but I knew that I would regret it if I didn't so... I went for it! Thankfully Elder Tu'ilotalava inhaled his pie in like 30 seconds so I didn't have to eat very much. haha I stayed pretty clean until the ward mission leader, Bro.Oswald, convinced someone to put the pie in my face. haha it was a lot of fun. Safe to say I probably won't do another pie eating contest again, though. I think one time is enough to have coconut cream pie up my nose. :) (Picture of THAT later :)

Well this is the last week of this transfer. The next time I email we will find out if I am staying or going. I think I will be staying here in Hamilton but one thing I have learned is that Heavenly Father knows better than I do and He will put me wherever I need to be! I hope everyone enjoys the pictures. I tried to take a lot more this week for my mothers sake. :)
