The Heat is On

Hello everyone!
It's been very warm and humid lately. Muggy is the right word. We had a great week though. On Monday we set a goal for baptism for our investigator JP which was awesome. That night we got a call from the zone leaders telling us that we had to be in Ottawa on Wednesday morning for and interview with President Patrick. No problem except now we're super low on kilometers for the month which means riding bikes, and as previously mentioned, it's hot outside. So basically, July is going to be a sweaty month haha. As uncomfortably as it is sometimes though, it feels good to just get out and work and not worry about yourself. A cool thing happens when you stop being concerned with yourself and starting just focusing on the people around you. It was a bit of a revelatory week for me. I love when I can look back and see the important lessons I've learned. Sometimes they come little by little so they're harder to see but sometimes they come in bigger portions.
The interview with President went well. By the time we got back from Ottawa I think we were both tired of being out of our area. On Saturday we passed by a family Elder Boehme and I had met and we were able to give them a back of Mormon after we visited for a bit (and saw some awesome card tricks from their son). They are a super cool family and are always super kind to us.
Yesterday was a farewell for the Browns in the branch who are leaving for a mission in Winter Quarters. So after church there was a potluck as a final goodbye. We are going there for dinner tonight so we haven't had to truly say goodbye just yet. We'll miss them though. They were a huge help for us in our missionary efforts. Anyway, the work is going great and time is flying by.
Love you all!
Elder Oxborrow
