It’s a Privilege to Serve in Canada!

 It’s Elder Call again! How is everyone doing? We had a very good week this week. Wednesday night we stayed with the missionaries in Colville in their beat up trailer, woke up at five in the morning, and got ready to go down to Spokane for specialized training. Elder Anderson spent an hour making everyone eggs, bacon, and sausage that ended up tasting less than delicious, so we agreed to just go get McDonalds. We met the Zone leaders in the infamous “transfer van”, drove by a steaming deer carcass on the way that the other missionaries insisted we pull over and take pictures of, and then we continued on to arrive at around seven o’clock in Spokane, about an hour early. The training was wonderful. President and Sister Mullen taught us tons about how to teach more simply, instead of going off on tangents, and the AP’s gave us new insight on planning. I really took alot away from that training that I’m excited to try. Missionary work is an exciting thing. We have alot of things going on in Grand Forks, that are difficult to keep a handle on. On Sunday we had a member of the Stake Presidency -President Merugie visit the unit. He spoke with us in our meetings alot about things that we can do to help the unit grow. He pulled Elder Wendt and I aside, and talked to us. He said that being in this area is probably going to be the greatest opportunity on our missions. Grand Forks is a city of about 4,000 plus people, and here we are starting to build the church from ground level. The Stake President has felt really impressed that the unit was going to grow tremendously in the next little while. President Merugie told us he had impressions that there were families in this area prepared to hear the gospel and he gave us some other insights. We are always getting more and more excited about working here in Canada. I know that what President told us is true. Things are really happening in Grand Forks. I feel privileged to be serving here. I hope all is well at home. I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying warmer weather in Austin! Spring would be a nice thing to have up here. I’m sure it’s not too far away. Much love, Elder Call

    Took photos of a ‘steaming deer carcass’. Did you tape off the area and look for ‘who done it’ clues????? Yuk……lol.
