Another week in the life of Elder H.
Looks like your having a good time, you should go to Guadeloupe and visit Elder Jason's family! You are in the neighbourhood. Cool stuff, hopefully everything is going well at home as well. (I sent Taylor pictures of the cruise Jenna and I were on last week.)
This week has flown by! It was super busy, but great! So much has happened, lots of little blessings everyday, well not little...huge! We went to teach Marie-Betty and we had planned to bring the Bishop with us. We got there before him, and as he was driving up, Elder Yunack said, oh hey, I'll get the Bishop and then Marie-Betty had told me that she was just thinking that she wanted to speak with the Bishop right before we got there. We didn't tell her it was the Bishop that was coming with us! Super cool right? I went on exchanges into the Spanish district on Wednesday. Elder Arias and I had a blast, and I got to use the Spanish Elder Gamez taught me back in Ottawa.
One of the coolest things this week was service. On Thursday night, we got a call asking for volunteers to help the next day. It was for Red Cross collecting money in Metro stations for relief for the people that live in Lac-Mégantic. There was a train that derailed and exploded there this week, destroying the town, and many people were killed. It was last minute preparation but it was so cool, we stood in the Metro station for 6 hours, we were so sore, but it was really cool to see the generosity of all the people! Crazy that a tragedy happened so close to here.
Saturday was a full day of lessons, and when lessons fell through, we were blessed with other lessons to take their place.
Over all a great week. Oh and we had cake for Elder McCook and Elder Smith's year marks.
Well have a great week!
Love Elder Heinzlmeir
