I still do a lot of my own cooking but Elder McDanel and I have just been getting sushi all the time! There is this super good place called California Sushi! The Asian man just loves us, he even gave us free noodles. But there are a lot of the times where we will go over to the mission home and eat with President and Sister Thomas. We stay in the mission office home and there are two rooms with two sets of bunk beds, so a total of 8 missionaries can stay there, which happens for things like zone conferences or ZTM or when trainers and new missionaries come. Honestly we don't do a lot of tracting....kind of lame :( We are currently helping out two missionaries who just need some help getting back on their feet. They have been with us since last week and this week, and then we will travel up to Saskatchewan for exchanges with missionaries, and so we will be up there for a week. Then the following week we will be doing exchanges with missionaries in Manitoba and then the next week we do transfer planning. We have just been super busy with meetings and just helping out missionaries. For exchanges with Manitoba we bring missionaries into our area and tract out our area.
So this week has just been really busy. I don't get to bed until like 12. I have never been so tired in my life. I am just dead, but i love it. It's great! Everything is still just super new to me so I'm still just trying to get a hold on things, but it will be ok. Elder McDanel is from Preston, Idaho and he had Napoleon Dynamite's locker...haha. He's a super great guy. He pushes me to work harder, it's teaching me a lot.
This week we had meetings, but last night was one of those most spiritual nights I have had yet. Elder McDanel and I were running to do some errands. We saw this guy on the side of the road because his car broke down. We both had the impression to stop, so we did. We went over there and asked if there was anything we could do to help and he said no because he was just going to call a tow truck. We both said a little prayer in our hearts that the car would start and we gave him a pass-along card. We turned around and took 5 steps and his car fired right up. Then, we were driving home and we saw these girls lighting candles where their friend died. She died last Thursday. She hit a tree and died on impact. We drove by and both had a super huge impression to stop and go teach them about the plan of salvation. We had no idea what we were doing haha we said a quick prayer. They were in their car and so we stopped by the place where they were lighting candles and then we walked to their car. They rolled down the windows and we just testified of God's plan and gave them a card to look at mormon.org. By the time we left they were just about in tears and we saw them pull out their phones and start looking up the website. It was just neat! God put them in our path for a reason.
Everything is going great here! Our meetings have gone super great as well. Being an Assistant is for sure a challenge. It is not easy. It's something I'm not used to but I'm just going at it with a willing heart and a willing mind.
This week and the rest of the transfer will just be super busy! But I love it. It is so great! :)
All is well,
