I'll go where you want me to go dear Lord, I'll be what you want me to be...
Well this week has been really good and very crazy. If you didn't know I am being transferred to the first ward in Surrey, which is about 20 minutes from Abbotsford, and my new Companion is Elder Bonfield. I don't know too much about him but that he has been out for almost a year and a half. So, I will be leaving Clearbrook on Wednesday.
I am really sad to leave Clearbrook because the members here are awesome and we have some really great investigators here that have been prepared by the Lord! Garry, who we have been meeting with a lot lately, has really progressed and has also gone through a lot of struggles too. He recently broke up with his girlfriend and she is moving out soon and he has almost completely quit smoking! So, he is very close to being ready and he really wants to. He talks about it all the time and loves come to church. He is very awesome! Katrina is someone we found at the beginning of the transfer and has been coming to church and has been reading the Book of Mormon like crazy! She is amazing! She has been completely prepared. She just needs to be taught. Clearbrook is amazing and I’m sad to go but I know that the Lords needs me to be in Surrey and that is where I will be the most effective and will help him hasten his work the most. So I am really excited! Oh, and Elder Boehmer's new companion is going to be Elder Kelly!! He was my trainer so that's stinkin’ awesome! I actually got to talk to Elder Kelly last night and it was really cool.
Another really cool thing that happened this week was Elder Crapo (Crape-o) got to go on exchanges this week, so now I have gone on exchanges with two of the Elders in my MTC district.
We went to a dinner appointment and they were telling Elder Crapo about how the socialist group took the majority in Alberta and Elder Crapo said he was happy and then this member who was obviously conservative told him why it was bad. So, that was pretty funny and a very interesting dinner appointment.
Well, not much else happened this week except that I got to Skype home which was awesome even though my sister is growing up and is scaring me, but that’s ok because we all have our agency.
Anyways I gotta go and do some packing!
Love Elder Slack
