Virtual Zone Meeting:

This week was pretty fun. Last Monday the sun finally came out so Elder Dunn and I went on a hike. I had my first Zone meeting in Petersburg. We are slowly seeing a bit more progress with our investigators. We also did a lot of walking this week.

Last P day Elder Dunn and I took advantage of the sun coming out since it rains like crazy here. We decided to hike a trial called Ravens Roost. We heard there was a sweet cabin up top so we gave it a shot. It's only about 4 miles but we weren't able to finish it due to the snow. The hike was really awesome it started out in a thick forest. It felt like I was walking through a frozen Costa Rican trail. The trees were so thick. Everything had moss on it from the moisture. We couldn't see the trail most the time so we had to always be looking at the markers on the trees. Once we got out of the trees we tried hiking through the snow but that didn't work out too well. We kept falling in the snow with every footstep we took.

We had Zone meeting this week. It was super weird seeing how the Juneau zone conducts their meetings. It was super awesome having the Elders in Canada, the Elders on the various Islands, and the missionaries in Juneau all Skype each other. It was a lot different than having everyone in one room.

We we're able to go to dinner at an investigator's house this week. This was a huge step for us bc there hadn't been any contact with her for months. Hopefully we'll be able to start teaching her again bc she's the only other hope we have of teaching someone besides Judith.

Since there isn't a whole lot of work here in Petersburg and everyone has heard what the missionaries have to say ten times already Elder Dunn and I do a lot of walking. We pretty much walk around and small talk with people. Really all we can do is try to be friends with everyone and have small talk.
