This week has been pretty crazy.
Monday went as follows, most of our preparation day was spent with a

There were a few other things that happened that day too but the main
one was the mutual (or youth group) activity.
Thursday we went and taught the people that we had set up appointments
with and was able to take Ian and Xander with us to different people
to have them help us teach. We also taught at the Hanna household.

starts training there will be 140 out of the 250 missionaries either
training a new missionary or they will be a new missionary. That's a
scary thought.... I hope they are all doing well. Sunday was goodbye
day, I said goodbyes to many people of the congregation and was able
