Meredith’s mission update of Feb 29, 2016
Officially got to 16 months on my mission this week!
Monday, for p-day, my companion and I ate at a great Montreal smoked meat sandwhich place and hung out in Old Montréal until we did our emails at the location we had reserved next to the mission office. We visited the Cathedral in Old Montréal, and it is beautiful. A lot of the images inside are of the first Catholic missionaries in Québec, and so it was cool to see that as a current missionary in Québec, albeit of a different branch of Christianity.
Tuesday we had interviews with the mission president. We were on exchange, which means that we worked with different companions, and got a bit lost around Montréal (because that always has to happen on exchange). It would have been a nice scenic drive around downtown if we weren`t so stressed.
Wednesday we had a normal day of appointments after District Meeting.
Thursday we did weekly planning and had some meetings. Friday was another exchange after mission leadership Council. After the meeting we had lunch and cookies made by Sister Patrick. Saturday we stopped by to see some members and investigators.
Sunday we had Church and a delicious Haitian dinner with members. We are speaking a lot of French and hearing back a lot of Haitian Creole. We have a pretty equal mix of Quebecois and different immigrant groups of Africans, Latinos, Haitians, etc (so the food is amazing!).
We are still trying to find more people to teach, so please pray that we can find them. 🙂
I love you all!
9 Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.
10 And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them.
