This week we had our first Webex meeting, it is a new thing our mission is doing. So usually once a month there is a meeting where all of the District Leaders and Zone Leaders all meet in Boston for a meeting. This month though they did it online, basically like a video conference call. So everyone just gets to stay in their own areas and participate in the meeting online. Since Elder Boone is the DL we were able to be a part of this first one. It saves a lot of time and a lot of money to do it this way rather than for everyone to drive all the way to Boston just for a 2 hour meeting. So now all of the leadership meetings are going to be online from now on, and also the first Tuesday of every month the entire mission will have a giant online meeting where President and Sister Packard will talk to us for an hour or so and give us trainings, we are pretty pumped about it.
We got hit pretty hard with snow in Waterbury this weekend. It snowed all night on Friday and then all day on Saturday. A lot of the wards cancelled church on Sunday, but ours didn't. We had a whopping 50 people show up to church though, so we had Sacrament meeting and then called it a day early. Not gonna lie, it was pretty nice to have 1 hour of church haha but I won't count on that happening very often. For the most part we spent most of the day Sunday out shoveling snow for some of the single sisters in the ward and then for a few of our investigators also. It was a good time, I am definitely feeling it today though.
Tomorrow is our mission's Christmas meeting, so we will be heading to Boston bright and early in the morning. We start it out by going to the temple for a session early in the morning, then we just all get together and have a giant Christmas party and devotional type thing. I don't really know what all will go down, but everyone says it is pretty fun! It should definitely be a good time!
Some random Ariel that we ran into during our day Saturday. How often do you see a giant Disney Princess just hanging out in Connecticut?
