A 3D Week: Duly-Ordained Minister, Didgeridoo, Dead Seagull

Hello Hello,
            Great week this week. Haven’t been able to use Facebook very much because it blocked me haha.  Too many people added me all at once so I am very limited as to what I can do on there now – only for a couple weeks though.
            Elder Kopischke and I are doing all right. We have been majorly trying to freshen up our teaching pool. C, one of our investigators, decided not to go through with baptism because she already has a burial plot in a Catholic cemetery, so she thought she might as well stay a Catholic. Fair enough.

            And we have stopped teaching other people due to various reasons.
            We had a zone meeting this week. Elder Kopischke and myself gave an excellent training on our authority and power as missionaries. On a little certificate we get at the beginning of our missions it says we are “duly ordained ministers” of Jesus Christ.  We focused a lot on that and how Christ is the true vine, and if we take him out of the equation, then we can do nothing.
            We did lots of service this week. On Tuesday we were at a member’s house for dinner. He was showing us his didgeridoo and letting us have a go on it. Then a lady from the ward called him and said she had a dead seagull on her roof and asked him to come get it off. We offered to help as well so off the three of us went! I thought she was exaggerating a bit and that it was probably a little pigeon, but when we got there she was right! A huge seagull was just lying in her rain gutter. I hung out of a bathroom window and poked at it with a broom until it fell off. 

Russell Square, London

             On Wednesday I had an exchange in London with the assistants. It was fun going into the big city for a couple of days. We went finding in front of the museums and then we took this big display thing to Russell Square and spoke with people there. It was a good day! Spoke with lots of different people from all over the world. 
            We had a great General Conference weekend. We had one investigator watch the sessions as well. My favourite speaker was President Eyring. He is the man! Both of his talks were inspiring. I always feel stoked and ready to go do some proper missionary work after General Conference. It was good.
            I hope you all have a good week!
