Half of Friday was a preparation day. Following our past trend in seeing historic museums, we went to see Colborne Lodge, a historic house in High Park. It was the home of an early architect, engineer, surveyor, and statesman in Toronto.
We quickly walked the length of High Park to see some fall colors (which were mostly gone) and the lake before meeting up with Elder Woodruff to take him for another visit to the physical therapist.
While Elder Woodruff was in his session we took a walk through historic Unionville. It was a lovely village and even had a waterwheel.
Saturday was an interesting day. We started with ESL as normal. Well, not actually normal since we had four new Brazilians show up. Since the elders came things have been picking up.
As we were finishing we got a call from Marzia who was at the subway station waiting for us to pick her up for church. Could it be a misunderstanding between Sabado and Domingo? The elders picked her up and brought her to the church. We were able to give her the tour of the church then a lesson on the Word of Wisdom. She doesn't have a problem, but would like her husband to follow it. He did give up smoking about six months ago. In the afternoon Sister Wheeler had another baby shower (called a babe tea in Portuguese), this time for Emily Genoa. Marzia went with her and was able to meet several of the ward members. Unfortunately, she was sick on Sunday and was not able to make it to church.
We had our missionary coordination meeting Sunday morning during which we reviewed the Ward Missionary Process. It should help us be more organized. Elder Wheeler then went to PEC and was assigned to follow up on Spanish members living in Scarborough whose records are in our ward. He was also assigned to get together a Portuguese choir for Christmas day (there will also be a Spanish choir). After church we had a planning meeting for a ward party late in November with a Brazilian theme. It looks like things are moving on. We hope we can keep up.
