Well today we are not chilling with the Elders for Pday. We are just chilling at the office, using the WiFi! And then I'm going to go and buy some shoes. Well boots, because boy is it getting cold! My poor little footsies is getting chilly!
Last Monday was really good though. We had a lot of fun with the Elders and we cooked, and laughed and made the most epic music video that missionaries probably could. Well I just looked really stupid actually, but it was all a great laugh. I've done some odd things that
I probably would never have done if I wasn't a missionary! We missionaries are a weird species. And you can't help but become weird when you become one. It's not be possible!
Tuesday was cool, we had our first visit to the family history centre. And it was really awesome. I was really enjoying looking at the genealogy that has already been done, and I am so pumped to do some for myself. I loved looking at where our family came from. There was some Ireland, Scotland, England and even some Cornwall in there. It was so interesting! I wonder what we'll be able to find out. :) I haven't even really started it and I'm already excited. The spirit of Elijah is real!
In the evening we had so much fun! We went and did the Single Adults activity this week. We did a short little lesson, and then we did an activity. The game we played is called psychiatrist. Basically you have someone go out of the room and you all decide on something that is wrong with you. Then the doctor comes back in and they ask you random questions to try and guess what is wrong with you. (Eg. You move your arm whenever you answer a question). This was the funniest thing! I don't think that I have laughed that much in a very long time. So dang funny!!
I want you all to know that on Thursday we found out that I am having a Baby Dinosaur... It's a boy! We're going to name him Russell Bellen Baffney. Oh, right, so basically I had an ultrasound cos I've been having tummy pains, but I'm ok! There's nothing to worry about, but me and Sister Butler are hilarious and this is what we came up with. Don't judge me!! hahahahaha.
For the last couple of weeks we have had a list of people to stop by who haven't been out to church in a looooong time, and we stopped by most of them and got a lot of no's and go away's. But on Saturday we stopped by one lady and she was so nice and she is happy for us to come back and see her. She's never been to Wylde Green ward, but guess what, she was a member in Woodsetton! Of all the places! Cool right?! So I'm looking forward to going back and teaching her.
We've been trying some fun ways of doing missionary work, and this week we came up with some fun questions to ask people when we are GQing. These are 2 of our weird, but successful questions. "What is the colour of your favourite dog?" "If you could be any fish, which fish would you be?" Yes, we actually did get a potential with each of these questions. I don't know how, but it worked. And it was fun and different and it made us and them, smile!
I love being a missionary! Time is going way too fast! I can't believe how long I have been out here for. I guess they say 'time flies when you're having fun'. And I am definitely having fun! And I am absolutely doing the toughest thing ever... And that is not that I am learning a new language, the language of the EBM missionaries. We really do have our own language, it is called 'obb'. Pronounced like aab. I'm getting pretty fluent at it. :-)
I love the Gospel! The Church is true!
Love Sister Gaffney
Don't even ask... Sister Butler
