I'm am so sorry you had to join that club. your fall seems so much worse than mine. It sounds like you have had a fun filled week and summer.
This week we are preparing for a baptism her name is Desiree Campbell she has 2 kids and is wonderful! its amazing to see the light of christ enter into her life. we have found so many people here in saint john who are ready and prepared. its amazing! so the guy named james that we met on a park bench....we are teaching him and he is amazing, he asks really thought filled questions. he is really seeking for the truth! i'm excited to see where he ends up! On tuesday we had zone conference in Moncton NB It was very spiritual and uplifting! my favorite part about zone conference, was the comment that one the the assistants Elder Tyler Torrie From Taber. he said that "Greatness does not come from you, it comes through you." what words of wisdom! i love being a missionary! i love knowing that all the missionaries are from alberta! means we will be friends forever! my friends now are the ones i've made on my mission! Other than karalynn of course! and well a few others! i can't wait for the day that sister Jarvis and I are companions! anyways. after zone conference we had a leadership meeting, that was weird being at, but cool to! i just don't feel like i've been out long enough to be a leader. crazy stuff! I'M TURNING 20!!!!!! i'm going to buy a cheesecake!
oh so crazy story. this week we met this guy named bryce outside of a convenience store we talked to him for maybe 2 minutes but didn't have time to get his info and moved on. the next day we decided to go knock in a random area and low and behold guess who was out side on the grass with their dog outside of his apartment building. Bryce! when we pulled up there were a bunch of cop cars outside and people, wasn't really sure what was going on until someone came over and said " SOMEONE DIED!!!!" in a freaking out voice! turns out this guy died. not sure why or how he wasn't very old, but during all this we taught Bryce on the grass and while i was teaching about apostasy they pulled the body out of the apartment building. it was so distracting i couldn't even focus and i butchered it. but hey he still understood and he is on date for baptism. but it was just a very awkward, interesting, unusual experience.
last night we were street contacting and this random guy stopped us. he had 8 tear drop tattoos.......do you know what those mean??? each tear drop resembles each person who they have killed....so here we are talking to this guy and all the sudden i got this feeling to walk away. low and behold sister wilkinson got the same feeling we turned around at the same time and walked away while he yelled some interesting things. i'm so grateful for the spirit! and then the next person we talked to was interesting and we are meeting with them this week.
also another day we were street contacting on the same street. and there was this lady playing guitar and harmonica and called us over to talk to her. we ended up singing i am a child of god with the tune she was playing on her guitar in up town Saint John for the whole city to hear! and we recorded it but it won't let me send it. but we did take a picture. she was cool, but wasn't interested. Saint John is so neat! they have some amazing culture and old buildings! Lets just say i LOVE IT! and they have this square called kinds square and they always have people performing there everynight!
