Remember, remember, this week of November
Unfortunately, it is not likely that Canada will be celebrating Guy Fawkes day this Wednesday, but, seeing as it is British Columbia, I’ll try to celebrate it in my own little way.
It’s been an enjoyable week! We’ve met lots of interesting people, and my morning studies are becoming better and better. Elder Smith, Elder Sloan, and I are only finding that we have more in common that we thought, so our time has been very enjoyable.
We’ve been very fortunate the past week; for example, the battery in our car had to be jumped once a week, and we found out that the airbags in the car were not working. Turns out that the car had seen many miles, and it was time to sell it anyway. We now have a much safer car, a Chevy Cruze, which we have decided to name Chloe (1 Corinthians 1:11).
At our recent zone conference, President Burt showed us the new movie “Meet the Mormons.” It’s simply a documentary showing the lives of six amazing familes around the world, and is presented very well. The beginning is very funny, showing several misconceptions that the church has received, and even features some short clips from South Park and The Simpsons. It does not really attempt to throw any church doctrine at the viewer, so it makes for a great feel-good movie for people of any background.
I do love the area, and transfer calls won’t be until November 24, so even if I am changing areas, there’s still plenty of work for me here in Willoughby.
With that, Elder Smith and I are off to Walmart! We plan on stocking up on Halloween candy today.
