"This week was amazing!
We got the opportunity to meet up with so many of the members from Scarborough. This week the YSA branch was closed because of the trip to Kitchener, so we decided to go to the nearest chapel in stead....which was SCARBOROUGH! Man...Elder Nugent and I both served here for long periods of time and so we knew everyone. It was a nice reunion with everyone! We saw many of the people we had taught before and the members were so friendly and kind. That is one of the nicest parts of serving a mission is you gain so many lifetime friends. We loved it there!

This week was a little slow in terms of teaching but we still taught many lessons. Elder Nugent and I are brothers! We get along so well and i love the guy. His family are pioneers in Jamaica and helped to establish the church there. So he has some strong background in the church. Its nice to have a stalwart companion.

Shady is still progressing but is planning for her birthday this week and so we will have to see how that goes in terms of helping her prepare for baptism. She has been at home for a while now because of her foot healing, but we continue to visit her and she is learning well.

had some exchanges with other missionaries this week too! Taught some great spiritual lessons on those exchanges and saw many miracles!

I testify that when there is love at home. When there is kindness in our relationships. when we serve others, especially the ones closest to us in our lives, no matter where we are in our relationship with them...love can conquer all fear...it can and will turn the night to day.

I also testify of the power of forgiveness and the great plan of redemption. I know that Christ overcame death for us...not only that but he understands each individual life. He knows me. He comforts me when faint. He gives me power to do that which I feel I cannot. The Atonement is real, and it provides humble power to overcome the obstacles of life. Of this I am certain. Every good thing came into life because of Christ and still does today.

I invite each of you to take the time to ponder and pray about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. To ask god if it is true. Look for ways to use this power in your life and you will find it. The Atonement can heal any hidden wound or scar and can change our very natures :)

Keep being happy and positive!

The Lord will make up the rest :)

Have a great week!

Elder NuWeh! Nugent and Wehi!"

Great news, Elder Wehi sent three photos for this week. I would like to share with you one of the photos that he has shared and the photos are also shared on "Mission Photos" section of this blog.

Again everyone, thank you so much for being patient with me and Elder Wehi. We really appreciate it.

2 Months Left

This post is short and sweet. I hope this post doesn't take away much of your time but if it does, I am sorry and I am sure this post is worth to read. I encourage you to think about and answer the following questions in your own time.

"Did you have somewhat an idea what this post would be about before reading this post?"
"Was it Elder Wehi has accomplished twenty-two months and he has two months to go?"
"What was your sudden thought when you read this post's title?"
"Isn't it crazy how time flies while you are keeping busy?"
"Isn't it crazy how time flies while you are having fun?"

Can you believe yesterday reached twenty-two months ago since Elder Wehi left for his mission and also yesterday reached seventy days left until Elder Wehi comes home? Well, I am telling you now that is definitely true that Elder Wehi left home twenty-two months ago and he comes home in seventy days.

Time have been going so fast and I seriously can't keep up with it. I am so happy for him. Please continue being patient with me and Elder Wehi, we really appreciate it.

Have a great weekend everyone!

FAITH+FIRE= A Superb Week!

I love hearing from Elder Wehi. Here's to what he said for this week.

"Elder Nugent is full of fire! He really is on fire with living the Gospel and teaching it! Its so nice to have such diligence that I have seen so many times from other companions too! I have been blessed with wonderful companions over the mission. Elder Nugent and I are meant to go home at the same time so we could possibly finish up here in Toronto YSA, which would mean that they would whitewash this area....whatever comes we will love it!

So this week we walked and 'pounded the pavement' so much! We went to Universities and contacted (talked with everyone) around the area. We found 10 new people this week to teach. Its been wonderful seeing the Lord pour out these blessings. We love each one of them.

Shady is still progressing. We love teaching her. Every moment of the day we are thinking of what we can do to help her. Its really nice to have that kind of charity in our hearts, which I know has been gifted from God. We cannot do this without your prayers and your support either! So grateful for that! thank you!

The mission is the best experience ever! Really! I have learnt so much about myself, about the Gospel and how to really live it...I have learnt the importance of choice. i have learnt how to pray more fervently. I have even learnt how to cook better...some of my companions might disagree ;) The work is beautiful. There is no where on earth i would rather be. I love being a missionary!

We also had a skills and interviews with President and sister Shields! I didn't get a very good picture yet...but this one would probably suffice for now haha. They are so good! they are full of fire and faith and they are super good with reading the book of Mormon. They are super friendly and they are hitting the ground running in finding and teaching on their own too. They shared a pass along card with a mail post person who came to their door! hahaha its funny because the fire they bring is like seeing it in brand new missionaries too! Its great and we love them!


I SAW GUARAV AGAIN! Guarav was baptized about 2 years ago in churchville YSA....my first area. We were on exchanges with Elder Holt...the wonderful assistant to the mission president (He is great!) and we were going to a lesson. i knew that Guarav was in the area and so we invited him to come teaching with us. It was SOOOO GREAT! I ran and almost tackled him as I saw him again since 2 years...It was so great to once again see him doing so well too!

Since the beginning of when he was baptized til now he has received the Melchizedek priesthood and gone to the temple many times. He also baptized 2 people a couple of weeks ago. He is doing so well and he prays like a champ. He told me a beautiful story. he said that when I left he got into some bad places in his life. He felt so bad and felt like he should stop going to church. he then realized how much the Gospel meant to him and he became converted to jesus Christ. He knew he could rely on him because he loved him. Since then he goes to church to come unto Christ. I couldn't ask for more. My joy is so full with that! :)

Remember....life is meant to be enjoyed...go find something fun to do...go make a new friend...go visit someone in need in your family or another...go do something with your life...and God will help you find the joy of doing so!

Life is a gift. How we use that gift is up to us. God wlll help us through the bumps and valleys. Of that I testify, that I know :)

Have a great week! I love you all, my family and my friends :)

Elder Nugent and Wehi"

Elder Wehi has shared two photos for this week. I would like to share with you one of the photos. Both of the photos are shared on "Mission Photos" section of this blog.

Hello everyone!

I would like to say my input before sharing this week's update, I still would like to thank everyone for being patient with me and Elder Wehi. I strongly encourage you to continue being patient with Elder Wehi to reply any of your emails because I know he has a very limited time to email.

Elder Wehi loves receiving emails from home. Elder Wehi loves receiving letters from home. Elder Wehi has sent a weekly update this week because it has been four weeks without a weekly update.

I know Elder Wehi emailed his Mum last week, to mention some things such as he will be staying in Toronto area, and he will be getting a new companion. Elder Akre got transferred to a different area, and his new companion is Elder Nugent.

Here's this week's update, "Thought I would send you all a picture of Elder nugent and I as we hadn't sent one in a while....its alittle strange...a little haha

This week has been super well! Elder Nugent and I served around each other in the MTC. He was always striving to help others find joy in the work and he still does that! He is great! We get along super well! We are one, we have so much in common and we testify of each other all the time. We have fun and work hard together and so there is going to be many miracles! I love the man!

Shady is still progressing well! We had a great lesson with her this week where we talked mostly about repentance. Shady testifies that she is trying each day to repent. She has been learning so much at church and growing so much. She said her first prayer the other day. It was a beautiful experience. We are learning so much with her too!

We had a special Mission Leadership Council where the new Mission President Shields and his wife introduced themselves to us. We sang hymns, talked and counseled on the needs of the missionaries in the Zones we are serving. We had lunch and breakfast which was super good! not too many days do we eat toooo well...but we do sometimes and those are special days haha. I recieved revelation that we should help certain missionaries and the biggest thing i took away from the meeting was to WORK HARD!

This is a sacred work! There is nothing more important that what I am doing now. This work does make a difference. Christ understands all things. He wants to succor all of us. He can only reach us to relieve us as we reach out to him. I am giving everyone the opportunity to feel that relief in their life. With Christ, life is sweeter. Thats why I am here...to bring souls to Christ. Gotta work hard for that...now and after the mission :)

We are looking forward to a great week!

Thank you all for your prayers and your love. You are all special to our Heavenly Father and to me. If there is anything we can do for you please please let us know? :)

Elder Nugent and Wehi (Nu-Weh) ;)"

Have a great week everyone!
