Wednesday morning we had Zone and District meetings. We brought mail for the zone from Brampton which was very exciting for the missionaries.

Friday for P-Day we stayed around the apartment for most of the day. The computer is just under the window so it is hard to see the monitor because of the glare. We went to Michael's to buy a display board. We attached a large map of Ontario to the display board which we can place in the window as a partial blind and remove when we don't need it. Lighting makes the city looks nice lately. There are not as many night lights since it is bird migration season so they minimize the amount of light, thus keeping the birds from flying into windows.

In the afternoon we walked past two homes we had previously tried to contact. The brother of Manuel said to return on Sunday. The Ponte family was nowhere to be found (again). As we were returning home a young couple said, "Hi, missionaries". We stopped to talk to them and found out they were the Pontes and were very friendly toward us. Had we gone a different direction we would have missed them. Sometimes small miracles happen. We had marked a visit with Maricio for Saturday evening, but when we arrived he was working so we couldn't meet him. This shows the ups and downs of "real" missionary work.

This has been a busy week with a lot of failed visits and some successes. We have been exhausted every night, wondering if we are doing any good here, but it's not about us, is it. We are on the Lord's errand.
