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

Training Again

September 19, 2016

Dear Family,

For P-day on Wednesday we spent the day in Moncton with the missionaries there before transfers and we went to a place called Hopewell rocks, which has a lot of cool rock formations and it has the biggest tides in the world. Pretty sweet place.

So I show up Thursday morning to transfers and all the new missionaries get off the space shuttle (transfer van) and I'm looking at all the name tags to see which one is Elder Carlson, and none of them were him. In my mind I was like, ok I guess I'll just not have a companion. And then Elder Sulzen comes up to me and says that I am his trainer. Elder Carlson got changed to Edmunston because he is learning French and that is a French area, so I get to train Elder Sulzen. He's a great guy, we already get along well. He is from Vancouver Island but the sad part is his mission is actually in Salt Lake East... yep he's a visa waiter, my second one. Hopefully he stays a while though.

We stopped by Matthew just to see how he was doing and while we were sitting in his yard with him his cat and this squirrel were playing together, rolling around and stuff right next to us, it was so cool. I've never seen that happen before.

Took Elder Sulzan out to talk to people on the street and helping him learn how to talk to people, and we ran into this couple who was on vacation, and they originally speak French but knew some English. So I tried to say something in French and also say Jesus Christ, but I said His name in Spanish by accident, whoops. They looked at me like, what? and then I corrected the name in French. Luckily Elder Sulzen knew enough French to carry on a conversation, haha.

On Saturday we taught our most recent new investigator, Faisal (pronounced Fy-Sell). He is YSA age and he is from Afghanistan. He moved from there to India for two years and his dad died there, and then they converted from Muslim to Christianity before they moved to Saint John. He was super understanding of our message about the Restoration and he said yes to baptism, but then he asked, would it be okay for me to get baptized in my church? So we focused more on Priesthood authority but I'm not sure if he quite understands it yet, but we will work on that. Solid guy though.

We had an Elders quorum activity where we played Bocce ball, but our investigator that we invited didn't show. Oh well. Still had fun.

Remind someone of their worth!

Love You All!!

Love Elder Ray
