Week #43

Oh boy am I tired!!!!!

Elder Gubbay and I are super tired but we are still smiling.

Yesterday we had a great day of service; where we helped a man cut down his trees.
It was super fun and we did all kinds of crazy techniques to break branches.
We later had a chance to speak with him about the Gospel.
His whole family are members and he has seen missionaries for a long time.
It was great to be able to help him and his wife and to talk to them about their wonderful family.

Zone Conference was awesome,
Elder and Sister Teixeira are incredible!
They have such a great love for everyone and have a great fire for missionary work.
It was such a wonderful experience to be able to be with them for 3 days as we toured the mission.
I loved seeing all the missionaries and they all looked so good!!!

Elder Gubbay and I had a really cool experience.
We were planning for the week when I felt like we should stop planning and talk to all of our neighbours.
We decided to go and do it.
As we ran out of our apartment with great excitement, we accidentally locked ourselves out.
We ended up talking to a ton of our neighbours and even taught 2 families in our same building.
2 other neighbours said they would love to meet with us another time.

During our travels around the mission for Zone Conference, we talked with a lot of people.
We talked to people at the airport bag check in, Flight Attendants, Airport food court workers and many other places.
Elder Gubbay and I love just trying to talk to everyone who is in our path.
We are going to meet with a man who we talked to as he was checking our bags for our flight.

So I am super tired all the time but all is well.

Love you,

Elder Ioannidis
