June 1, 2015 - Area 4: Surrey East

The Big Party

So begins another week of what's been a challenging transfer in Surrey. The short sum of the week involves a lot of personal finding throughout the week. Our legs and feet have become exceedingly sore. We've gone everywhere from Surrey Central to Gilford Mall, to the darker side of town. Once again, we have found a few potentials just as we did last week, none of them which turned out.   

On Friday morning we taught Betty but she told us that her husband is apparently not very pleased with our meetings with her. She says she knows that the Book of Mormon is true and says that she will have to talk to her husband about the meetings and we all agreed to pray for him and her. 

The main event that took place that should be noted is the cancer fundraising party the relief society threw on Saturday. We spent an hour helping to decorate and get the tables ready. The next day it started at 1:00 pm and we prepared and served the food for a few hours with a few of the Langley YSA members. The Surrey West Elders were there and it was pretty cool seeing Elder Bonfield (who used to manage the kitchen of a restaurant in Ontario) with his kitchen face on. It was a great event to be a part of. The party raised about $2300! We came back later the same night and ate dinner and took home some much needed leftovers. We finally got our debit cards filled on Friday which was also very welcoming since we had to live on practically noodles, cereal, and peanut butter toast for the 3 days before. 

On Sunday we had a Korean guy named Levi show up at church with Brother and Sister Cardwell. Its his first time going to a church and he seemed to really like it. That was the only investigator we found this week. Jim never showed up for his appointment on Sunday after church and we haven't heard from him since.  

Hope your enjoying this first day of June. It's mostly cloudy here right now but still around 20 degrees. A certain lady we talked to on the street the other day told us that 2015 will likely be the hottest year the province has seen in a long time. Hopefully I don't move to Osoyoos this summer!
