This past week week I've really enjoyed studying the Epistle of Peter, James, and John. I've also really enjoyed studying the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It's also great to know that one of the last acts that Jesus Christ did while on the cross was making sure that his mother was taken care of.
25 ¶ Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
On monday Brother Minhsull took us to see John Harrison at Sunnybrook hospital! We talked with him for about 30 minutes. While we were there we were talking about how church was on Sunday and he talked about his past callings and how much he loved them. He was also going off on how much Brother Minshull would like the show American Pickers. classic.
Later in the week we were able to have breakfast with the De Paula family!!! I love that family. They are the best, they help us in every way possible for fellow-shipping and just love to have us over, and they are teaching me Portuguese so win win win!
Then right after that we helped Brother Baines pack up his apartment into his jeep so he could move back to Alberta! sad day. Brother Baines and I were homies. While packing up he gave us some Australian Ginger Beers and he gave me his legit Wallabies rugby jersey from his mission. Such a stud.
Through out the week we have been doing a lot of less active contacting and it turns out that having a less active in Toronto is the hardest thing ever. I'm sure that other missionaries serving in big cities understand. People that live in Toronto move about every 2-5 years and they change their number for some reason as well.... so now we have a full Less Active list of about 200 members but we have no way to contact about 50-75% of them..... yaaaaaaaaaaa good times.
Elder Dixon is killing it. Learning extremely fast. I can see the gift of tongues working through him and it is amazing.
