Bibi and Avi's baptism yesterday :) It went great!
This week was a good one. It's always great to end it with a baptism! Bibi and Avi were baptized and it was great! They were both very excited and we had a lot of support from the ward and President and Sis Scott came too. Subhash was up in the middle of it all! He went and bough a bunch of indian food, when i asked him about buying food on Sunday he said, "i didn't pay for it! I just picked up and told them i'd come tomorrow and pay for it." haha is that cheating? He's so funny. He helped in the kitchen and stayed and helped clean up too. He also recieved the aaronic priesthood today! He was so happy. He's planning on going to the temple to do baptisms this week. We aren't allowed to go with him but some awesome members are going to help him out.
You're wondering about Mo? Well we did see him a few days ago. He was riding his bike around the church. Right after he was baptized, the place he's working at gave him a full time job (including sundays!) So he works Sundays for the summer but should be coming back soon. That's what always seems to happen, eh? He's doing pretty good though i think.
I did hear about that shooting at the sikh temple. It hasn't hindered our teaching at all. We never teach sikh people anyways. They're never interested.
So there's a new office couple- the Caldwells. So we're getting to know them since we visit once a week. Well, last week i found out she's an interior design teacher at LDSBC! Cool, eh? So we started talking design and i've realized how hard it will be to go back and try to remember all the software programs! haha uh oh. She said a lot of the teachers at BYUI are retiring this year :( sad day!
We had one of the most awkward street contacts this week. We found a pretty good spot in part of our area at an intersection. There's a bus stop on each corner so we were walking around. The buses come often so there's usually a good # of people. However, it's kind of difficult (i think) to talk to an entire group of people cuz they're all standing really close to each other. So you can either pull one person out and focus on them, but that's awkward too. Or i decided to talk to all of them at the same time. (mistake.) A couple of people turned and looked and turned away, a couple other people didn't even look in the 1st place and a few others just stared and talked on thier phone. So after introducing ourselves and saying a few other things there was no response whatsoever...so i just said, "no takers? alright...well have a great day!" it made for quite a journal moment.
We had a zone training meeting in Weston this week. Drove down to Toronto and met with all the missionaries in our zone. (about 25 or so) We practiced teaching and learned some good stuff.
So that about covers everything I believe. have fun taking mady to college! A few missionaries left a transfer early to be able to attend this semester at BYU. Just remember mady, nothing good comes out of a date with an RM. ok? :)
miss and love you all
