I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me;
yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy. Alma 29:9

Continuing the Work

April 20, 2015

Hi Family,

It's transfer week! Yesterday we got an email with all the areas and the companionship's for the new transfers. It's like getting a mission call every six weeks. Are we staying here? Who is my companion? Am I changing areas? Fortunately I get to stay in the metro area longer because I am staying in Cole Harbour with Elder McGuire. He is stuck with me for another transfer. Elder Wilson who has lived in the apartment with us, companions with Elder Blum, is being moved to Cornerbrook up in New Foundland. Elder Blum's new companion is Elder Tauffer, who came out in the same group as I did.

The fact that there are I think four cousins getting ready to go on missions around the same time is awesome. It would be so cool if one of them went to Halifax, but out of 402 missions there is a slight chance.

Most of our investigator appointments cancelled this week, which was a bummer. We haven't had the chance to meet with Steven yet but will be this week. Also Alex was working on a project at school at the time we usually meet. And we were going to meet with Greg, who we just met, but we think he wasn't sober enough to remember that we had an appointment. On Thursday we helped the sisters move their apartment from the fourth floor down to the first floor. The building does not have an elevator. Picture this, moving tables, chairs, desks, couches, and beds down four flights of stairs. Everyone was so exhausted after, yet the day wasn't over. We should be moving our apartment in the next couple of weeks from the ninth floor to the first floor, and luckily we have an elevator. The elders and sisters live in different apartment buildings.

It is starting to warm up and there are a lot more people walking and running outside now, it is easier to talk to people. One place that I enjoy talking to people is on the board walk in Eastern Passage. It is right on the ocean and lots of people are there. We also get to enjoy the ocean, it`s awesome. Yeah so Friday evening was Dave Lake's baptism, which was huge because this mission doesn't see too many baptisms. Our whole district had a part in his journey to baptism at one point or another. I guess I could count him as my first but he was the other elders investigator, I was just there to help teach a lesson once. There were eleven missionaries at his baptism, and we all sang Amazing Grace for it. Dave picked the song. As a missionary if you have the slightest musical ability with singing or an instrument you will be involved a lot.

Today we will be going to the mission office for a surprise party for President Leavitt's birthday. It will be different when they leave in a couple of months and then we get President Pratt. That's another big reason I like the areas near the mission home and office, because you get to be involved in fun and important things. I get to go to some meetings that others don't and do things like throw a party. Anyways, much love.

Love, Elder Ray

Not Transferred yet.

Dave's Baptism and all the missionaries involved.

We got our pictures and info up in the church
building, so everyone can know that we exist.

This is how we weekly plan, so focused.
