Week 2 in Trenton!
Monday we did our shopping (SEE WEEK 59 ) . Stopped by Orvis (one of my favorite fishing stores!) that's in our area, lemme tell ya it won't be the last time haha. Later we were on splits with the Spanish elders that cover our area. One of them has only been out for about 6 weeks now and he's just loving it so far so that's good. After the splits we came back to our apartment and there were 4 mice that we caught in glue traps! That makes 9 in one week haha.
Tuesday we went to a district meeting and one of the district leaders in our zone gave a training on how we can use the Book of Mormon in different ways. When we got back to Trenton we had an appointment fall through so we just did some finding.
Wednesday we went to service and helped prepare food for the homeless and hungry. We had a few appointments with investigators and then we had a meeting with President Hess and our stake president and his counselors to discuss the progression of the members/non-members in our wards and branches. After that we started an exchange with the APs (assistants to president Hess). I was going to Elizabeth to stay in the APs apartment with is a four man apartment (four missionaries live in it).
Thursday did our studies and then we made some bomb breakfast for lunch and then we did some deep cleaning because the end of the transfer. From that point on we had appointments all day. Later that night we exchanged back.
Friday we went to our service at TASK again. And then we had appointments all day. We had an appointment with one of our investigators Eddie who's really cool (he's the older guy), and he wants to change his life and have an eternal family. And then we saw one of our investigating families. A single mother with 4 kids. We visit the family but the mother and the daughter (Miriam and Alexis) are the only ones Investigating. They are from Liberia and they are also on date to be baptized on the 30th of this month so that's super exciting! The youngest (Alex) who is 1 is my best friend. Seriously though he is so funny!
Saturday we had appointments with some members. An appointment with Tito and his family. He's a single father with three kids and they're homeschooled. Soo it's hard for him to provide and get a job. We talked about how his family does it. Like how they get through the hard times? How do they keep there spirits up when the don't have any food? And they shared with us something very neat and it was the acronym W.Y.E. it stands for Watch Your Energy. There is never a need for us to feel down. Yes there are times where, because of circumstances we put our selfs down but that doesn't mean we need stay down. In a talk that I listened to by Hyrum Smith he talks about how self worth is directly related to your productivity. So if you're down and you don't feel super great about yourself then in turn you will not get a lot done. When we watch our energy and make sure that we are giving out good vibes and being hopeful and really sharing the light of Christ which we all have then we will be productive, we will make due with what we got and we will keep on working even harder to progress spiritually and temporary. Later that night we visited the Jorgensen family. Such a great family and loves to have the missionaries over which is even better haha!
Sunday was great. Church was good, still getting used to an English ward. We had some meetings after church and all. The rest of the day we went finding and tried by less actives. We had the transfer call too. I am staying in Trenton haha. I wasn't expecting to be moved after 2 weeks haha.
And today we were fishing. One of the youth in our ward does a lot of fishing and so I had him hook me up with some spots. We only went out for a little and I caught a little bluegill. I need to get in some fishing before the snow comes and packs me in haha nah we'll still be out but we won't be able to fish.
Have a great week!
Oh and we haven't caught any mice in 5 days but we are still seeing evidence that they are alive so we've been trying everything haha.
