McDonald’s Saved My Life!

So this week was pretty stinkin’ good. Even for being on public transit! Which has been a pretty big hinderance this last week! So we have a zone baptismal date for April 26th and 27th where EVERYONE in the zone is “going to baptize!” So Elder Barker and I were desperatly searching for someone to baptize this month as we flipped through our area book and found every investigator who has ever been to church! Then, we called or dropped by every single one! Now if we would have had a car, that would have only taken us a day. But, we don’t. So it took us all week! Some people hadn’t been taught for four years and didn’t even live in Canada anymore, but the majority of people were just not interested unfortunately.

So that leads me to my story about the title of this e-mail! (aren’t they always so clever?? haha.) So we were out and about contacting former investigators and it was a b-e-a-utiful day! Super sunny! So much, in fact, that Elder Barker (my “fair and delightsome friend” as I like to call him) still has a nasty sunburn on his forehead haha. So anyways, we were walking around and I started to get suuuuuper light headed. I knocked on this guy’s door and I was so out of it, I didn’t even remember what we were there for haha! And afterwards, I turned to Elder Barker and he was like, “Dude, you’re super pale.” Then I was like, “Alright, we’re leaving.” We were SUPER far from home, so I was stumbling all around and Elder Barker had to stop me from falling over a couple times haha. Then we turned a corner and there was a wal-mart and a McDonald’s there! So obviously we chose to go into the McDonald’s! And I got some water! Hence, McDonald’s saved my life haha. I learned that even though we’re out all day and don’t have a car to keep water in, we’re going to have to find a way to take some with us. Which stinks because it’s heavy and we do a lot of walking. But oh well, we’ll get stronger!

Other than that, this is my first week in Brookswood that we hit the standards for our mission! I used to hit it all the time in Penticton, but Brookswood has been more of a challenge. I blame the car situation, but I’m not one to point fingers… We found 12 new investigators and set a couple baptimal dates on doorsteps so that was sweet. Almost all of them have fallen through already, but oh well. WE’LL JUST SET MORE!!! We still want to baptize in April but it’s not looking too good for us right now. We’ll be praying and working for a miracle!

Well that’s about all I’ve got to share with you this week! I love all of you very much! I hope you’ve been enjoying the spring time, I know I have! Have a great week everybody! I’ll talk to you later!
