Tuesday was the most normal day. We did our normal service at Saint Vincet DePaul's and followed up with some contacting of people. We got to talk to the excommunicated member again and her family. They all seemed fairly receptive to what was said, and want to talk to us again, which is awesome for the family. The next major events happened on Wednesday, where we spent a large chunk of time helping out a homeless man who was part of a church who had stolen everything from him, and a fun lesson with Taylor again. We had our ward mission leader over, Brother Dyer, and watched the Testaments with the family. Their dog ended up being in labor and started to give birth half way through the movie, which derailed the rest of the night. It was fun to see, and somehow by the end of the night Taylor said that she wanted to be baptized on November 19, despite all of the craziness going on.
On Thursday we did a lot of service for a bunch of different people, including feeding pigs on a pig farm and tearing out carpet for a recent convert. On Friday we had a district meeting where the zone had fun "killing" one of the zone leaders who goes home tomorrow, and Saturday we went to a train park for a ward activity. Several investigators came and it was fun. We had a train ride, as well as a showing of a giant model of different scenes with trains. We then showed up to a little boy's birthday party who asked us to shortly visit at the train park, and then we had dinner at a member's home who geeked out with me about vintage Star Wars action figures he collects.
Sunday was pretty normal outside of packing up for the coming transfer. Elder Borden is going to an area called Bandon on the coast and I got a new companion named Elder Hoskins who is from California and is pretty laid back. Overall it was a pretty crazy week and hopefully the coming week goes really well as well!
Thanks for reading,
