What's up brethren and sisters
Dang what a wild, wild week to be a missionary, especially for us. This week was transfers so I got my new comp Elder Lolesio. He is from American Samoa and hes super dope.
We whitewashed the area which means both Elders left and they stuck us brand new to the area together. We got to work and have been meeting some cool people. We went to 1 YSA activity and met some of the YSA members of our Branch. You know we're just goin along having a great time being in one of the best areas in the mission and then BOOM the world goes freakin nuts and all of a sudden we dont have church, activities, english class, we can't get close to people, can't shake hands. I think Corona is fake news and the only thing that should be canceled is General Conference because our favorite Apostles and Prophets are not the youngest bunch so they would probably be very affected if they got Corona. But they can’t take away General Conference. That’s a missionary’s Super Bowl. Idk why everyone else is losing their minds. Just play ball, let us go to church and everyone RELAX. Canada definitely needs to relax, I have never seen so many medical masks and people get so freaked out when someone coughs. Canada is in hysteria, meanwhile me and Elder Lolesio just want some tiolet paper.
Anyway we still have a work to do. It just got way harder though because we can't invite anyone to church and YSA people we meet on the streets love activities like sports nights but we can't invite them to those either. On top of that because we whitewashed we don't know anyone in the Branch and we were suppose to go teach Come Follow Me to members but we don't know any lol. I feel like the first missionaries that they talk about in D&C a little bit, they couldn't invite to church because it was so far away and all they could do was testify and give people Book of Mormons. I got mad respect for those guys, I feel.
God is so good though. I woke up and thought it was gonna be a grind of a Sunday but he gave us so many miracles. A guy responded to one of my old Book of Mormon ads and so we gave him a Book of Mormon and he wants to meet with us, come to church, and bring a friend who is interested! Then on the way home I said hi to a guy, he recognized us, asked for some teaching because his mom passed away, I was able to testify of the Plan of Salvation, we gave him a card so hopefully he hits us up. God is so good guys, and no unhallowed hand can stop the work.
I hope you guys have a great week, keep praying for missionary work it needs your prayers. The church is so true, the prophet called all of this so just think about that. Hopefully yall listened and took your vitamin pills just like he said so you can quit freaking out about stupid Corona lol. Now you can't mess around with Come Follow Me it's all you got haha. Have a good week!
