Goodbye Barrie! 09/26/16


Well, We got the transfer call last night.. and it turns out that I'm headed to London! I'm excited, it's a pretty big city, between 300,000 and 400,000 people! Looking forward to that new adventure! I'm going to be serving with Elder Certonio yet again, so crazy how I keep getting put back with Companions! I'm so excited though, looking forward to it so stinking much! I'm going to miss Barrie so much however, this place feels like my home away from home, I love the people here so much, and I love the area. It's sad to leave, and it kills me to say goodbye, but, I'm needed elsewhere! Get this though, Elder T is coming back to Barrie! Hahaha, crazy eh? My goodness. 

This week was crazy with all sorts of different things. Stressful week in the sense that we had to do a lot of reports this week because it's the end of the month and transfer, so it was nice to get all those done. 

We had an amazing lesson with one of our Investigators Stefan, we got there and he had been drinking some and had a pack of cigarettes, so we started to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it was only our second lesson with him, and we were talking about Baptism. Then Stef said, "I have to be honest with you, I had an experience, I did what you said, I believe Joseph Smith is a prophet" I think my jaw hit the ground, it was awesome. He then asked what he needed to do to be baptized so Elder Munsey (Exchanges) brought up the word of wisdom and then looked at and passed the conversation to me so I had to teach what he couldn't do.. It was funny afterwards we laughed a lot about it, anyhow, we talked and Stef took his beer and dumped it on the ground, he then said he still needed to smoke so hit lit one and sat back, we invited him to be baptized on Oct. 29th and he leaned forward, snapped his cigarette in half, and through the pack over the fence and said "What else do I have to do". He then proceeded to come to church on sunday, loved it there! He also told us he gave all his beer to his neighbor! It was awesome! He's doing amazing!

I don't have a ton to write this week, sorry. But I'll send lots of pictures for you to enjoy. They are more fun anyhow. 

Love you,

Elder Taylor
