so this week was crazy! lets start at the beginning 
Monday: for once we where not rushed, in fact we where bored! everything was just done early i guess! also i caught a turtle!
Tuesday: nada day! nothing happened at all! pretty sure we knocked every door in Ontario.
wednesday: on exchange( a 24 hour trade of companions) with elder nelson, we taught a super powerful lesson with one of their investigators. she committed to come to church! and then at dinner i was asked if i was related to Craig Dickson, i was like i duno. and so we had dinner than after dinner he brings out a stick bug and puts it on my arm! that feels weird, they walk with little claws by digging them into surfaces! kinda tickles. then after dinner he brings out this yearbook, and i kid you not this man looked just like me!( i included a picture) his name is Howard Craig Dickson! and he is like 60 now!
Thursday: another SLOW day!
Friday: yet another SLOW day!
Saturday: got the chance to fix a less active members car today! we had joel (our investigator) come over and help us bleed her brakes for her!
Sunday: this is when things get crazy! so first we have an investigator Allen he has been investigating the church for 3 years, but has not been able to kick his smoking habit, we had a really spiritual lesson with him, and then asked "allen will you stop smoking?" and he said "this weekend" so exited for him! fasting and prayer really does work! then later that evening we had a lesson with Emily(the lady we accidentally stalked!) and sister Swart, (our ward mission leaders wife) made a really good friend for Emily and as we taught her about the plan of salvation, she loved it and cant wait to hear more! and just to put cream on top of the cake, we finally got a good picture of the snapping turtle that lives in our pond!
this week was so hot and cold! its hard to have a really full day and then a day of just nothing!
