Exciting week of travels on the front over here!
Lay down of the week:
Tuesday: Drove to Corner Brook Newfoundland and ate Moose-meat pie! yes real moose
Wednesday: Flew to Halifax and worked with some elders there!
Thursday: Had a big meeting in Moncton, New Brunswick. Spiritual thought to follow.
Friday: Went on exchanges with some elders and it was super fun! I love Halifax!
Saturday:Went to catch our flight home, however the plane was delayed an hour, then 2, then cancelled.
*At this point we were a little sad because now no one in Grandfalls could go to church! It was a sad realization point…
Sunday: Went to church in Halifax with a ward of 150+ and was overwhelmed!! Seriously blew my mind away at how many people were there!
Monday: Went to catch our new flight, and we got all excited because we were having a layover in Labrador (a place no missionaries get to go)!! We got on the plane and were all nicely seated, then the worst announcement came on……mechanical leakage….everyone get off. HAHAH They realized that we wouldn’t make our connection and so our only option was to wait 6 hours in the Halifax airport! Our flight left at 11:30pm and we got home around 2am!
Anywho, it was a funny experience, and loved every minute of it!
Personal Conversion to the Doctrine of Christ can make trials and tribulations easier to bear. I was reminded again this week of how learning and applying the Atonement in my life will help me have peace through all trials. While we dealt with travel problems, this was the first time in my life that I was not frustrated, nor angry. These things happen in life, and getting frustrated and flustered, stressing and sub-conscious about these matters will never help.
I love this beautiful life we live!
