December 1, 2014 - Area 2: Clearbrook (Abbotsford)

Staying Together
Yep, Elder Lamb and I are both staying in Clearbrook this holiday season. Meanwhile, Elder Maura and Elder Walker have both been transferred and Chilliwack has been closed down. Elder Lamb is also now the district leader. December is here and so is the cold! If you happen to be living in Alberta however, it doesn't seem that bad. It's only -5. It's unreal how close 2015 is. My year mark is not too far distant. 

Wednesday night we drove into Vancouver to pick up an Elder from the airport and drive him to the Mission. We had to take our car in for repairs so we took the Mission Elder's Subaru. Then it rained real hard the whole night and it took us seemingly forever to get back into Abbotsford in time for curfew.  

It's been a pretty quiet week. Thursday we helped a new family move into the ward from Mission. The family just so happened to live 4 doors down from the Noftle's home and a couple of their kids went to help out.  

On Saturday when we got our car back, we met with a new investigator at his home in Aldergrove. His name is Nick and he had a hard time with the restoration. He's still willing to read the Book of Mormon despite feeling skeptical about things. The problem is he's going with his wife to Australia until the New Year so we won't be able to see him for a while.

Once again, we taught Devin, this time at the church, Sunday evening. There's enough proof to say that he wasn't ready to be baptized. Elder Lamb and I have decided to just re-teach him everything. It'll be a little while before we set another baptismal date with him but we have no problems with that.  

And so ends another transfer in the Canada, Vancouver Mission. Looking forward to writing about next week. Sounds like there's plenty of snow in Edmonton, so it should feel easy to get into the Christmas spirit! Cheers!
