Week 25: Wait! What?? 6months already??


So question time:

1.   Updates on investigators or reactivation efforts?
      So in preparation for Elder Oaks coming on January 17th, We are required to get at least 2 new investigators each week but they are asking for 5! We have had trouble finding investigators!
       When I got here we had no maps, we didn't really have a potentials list, or a decent dot map! So that is something we are still working on! We visited and called some of the Formers and the Potentials and if all goes well we will have 10 New Investigators this week! AHH! 
        Mark- Very interesting! Not progressing anytime soon! Only time and prayers can help! :)

2.  Tell us about your new companion, where is she from, how long has
she been out, etc?
      Sister Barton! She is from Taylorsville, Utah! We came out together, we were in the same MTC zone. She loves to sing and she is awesome at it! She is 19! She loves to Serve God!

3.  What is the new area like?  What about your new ward?
     Brampton is a lot like Draper! Big Houses, spread out everywhere and the Temple is in the middle of it! People here were born Roman Catholic and want to die Roman Catholic... Well we will see about that! 
      My Ward is so much fun! There is a different Diversity here! Everyone is pretty young! Also we have all the temple missionaries in our ward!!! So much fun! Brother and Sister Ethridge are from Roy, Utah as well!!!!!! WOOT WOOT!! They live right by the airport!

4.  What is Brampton like, small, rural, urban what?
     Pretty Big it is more of a Subburb. But my area is more on the out skirts and it has more fields and smaller towns and such!

5.  How are you holding up in the weather?  Has it been cold?  It
snowed here quite a bit and the nights have been bitter cold.
     Oh my GOSH!!! It is SOOO cold! it was -12C today when we left at 10 this morning! and that was without wind chill! Sister Barton's ink was freezing! 

6.  So who is in your new district/zone?  Do you know some from
