This week has involved a lot of traveling around the area. To start, on Wednesday we had the adventure of getting called down to Waldport, by the assistants to the president, to help set up an apartment for a senior missionary couple moving in. It was a fun, random move, but it forced us to move our schedule around and use a lot of miles on our car. I get the feeling that will bite us later, but hey, that new apartment sure is nice!
Thursday we had district meeting, then that night we got to drive into Corvallis for interviews the following day. When we got there, we found out that the Zone Leaders had some other Elders over that day for an exchange as well, making for an interesting night in the Zone Leaders place. We then had interviews which were as good as usual, and then worked in Toledo for a while. We finished out the day by helping our ward mission leader set up for the ward Christmas party.
Saturday was a normal day of missionary work. It ended with the ward party. In it Santa came and we got a photo next him! He wouldn't take our Book of Mormon unfortunately, haha. And then following the dinner our ward mission leader engaged in a large musical number, complete with a great funny dance for the twelve days of Christmas. It was pretty great, and Guillian and his mom managed to make it to the party.
Sunday was also good, with the highlight being meeting with many of our investigators that day, who also came to church. The best lesson was with our on date, who is now locked in with the Relief Society president and is so awesome. It is a miracle that is fun to be apart of. Then today we had Elder Kellerstrass and his companions come on over to Newport for p day and spend some time on the beach.
The work is progressing and is continuing to build up. Thank you for all the support and merry Christmas!
