Hello and welcome to a brief summary of what has been a fairly quiet week. Linda has been doing great! We taught her the first new member lesson yesterday. Unfortunately, our teaching pool has suddenly gone pretty bare. With our conference in Victoria taking up Thursday afternoon up until we left Saturday morning, so finding was lessened.
A while ago we talked to a man named Rick who said he was interested but he has been away at his working camp for a long time. He told us that he has been reading the Book of Mormon we gave him and wants to meet when he can.
And the family we have all been waiting to hear about, the Bammons? Sadly, their busy schedule got the better of them this time. Both Rachael and Jeff have been working and dealing with taking their 2 boys to their hockey tournament. Jeff told us to try him at the beginning of the week after this. We'll see how things go. Please pray for them!
The conference in Victoria was great! We drove to stay at the Duncan apartment Thursday night and stayed with Elders Matheson (who goes home in 3 weeks with Elder Lamb) and his companion Hancock. The Nanaimo zone combined with Victoria for a day at the chapel in Victoria. President and Sister Burt each did a training followed by a couple of assistants. The conference was long enough to force us to stay in Duncan for another night before driving home.
We took another trip to Quadra Island where we were fed dinner from a member family named the Stewart-Webbs. They fed us some homemade spaghetti which was truly amazing. As we were waiting for the ferry to pick us up, I captured some great photos which I can't show because there's no way to upload them. :( There's the week. Have a good one and enjoy the last week of winter!
