It was a slower week this week, just trying to catch up on things that need to be done before we leave. Monday at least gave us the opportunity to take a ride downtown for a little bit in the afternoon. We spent Tuesday looking for a truck to rent since we will have to move our furniture to Campbellford. All the missionaries showed up for ESL on Tuesday night, but none of the students came. We were ready to go back to the apartment at 7:30 when Shaheen (one of the students in our class) came. So we had a special lesson for one person.

Wednesday was a cold day. It started with a district meeting in the morning. We then went to visit Marzia with the three Portuguese elders. She fed us all and Elder de Moura gave her part of the 5th lesson. We then hurried to the church where we helped the elders give Mucio and Jayanna Maia a second lesson. They are a delightful young couple who seem very interested in the church. We had a 5-to-2 advantage, that's better than a power play in hockey.

We went to the bank to deposit a check and get some cash. We snapped a picture of Nigel from Tobago (the little island in the Caribbean tied to Trinidad) who has been very friendly since we first opened the account last June. We then went to see Emily and her new baby.
The internet has been down this week. We finally gave Rogers (our internet provider) a call. They sent a technician out on Friday to replace the modem. We also had a 3rd lesson with Mucio and Jayanna on Friday morning. We had our last ESL on Saturday. Shaheen, from Pakistan has been a regular in our class. She said she will miss us as English teachers. She was very sad and teary eyed.
In Campbellford, we will be moving in to the apartment where the elders used to live. They left a few holes in the walls over the years they have lived there that will be fixed up before we move in.
It is really the building being demolished behind the Stake building.

We had a New Years Eve dinner with other senior couples at Frankie Tomatto's, an Italian buffet. We will miss getting together with the other missionaries.
