Monday January 16, 2017 - Where did this week go?


Where did this week go?
Well it has been another incredible week up here in Calgary! Every single day I grow to love this place and the gospel more and more! I am not sure how, but I swear its happening!

Not too much happened this week besides the fact that our Spanish branch became a WARD!!!!!!! Wow, I don't think I've ever been so happy in my whole life! All the members were so excited as well. It was such a great day! 

Well in other news, we picked up another investigator this week and she already has a baptismal date!!! She has no religious background whatsoever and we have been able to teach her so much! It is so incredible to see people who are just ready to accept the gospel. I have no doubt in my mind that the Lord prepares people for His missionaries!

Another highlight of my week was a lesson with a less active last night. We went into this guy’s house thinking we were just going to share a scripture and invite him to the Spanish branch but instead his talked to us for an hour about the sacred nature of our calling as missionaries and his we are constantly surrounded by angels. At the end, he told us that we are far away from our homes and families but we have a home and family who loves us here as well. By the end, I was in tears. The spirit was so strong. THE CHURCH IS TRUE!

Well that is all I have got for you this week but I would love to hear about your own personal missionary experiences if you want to send me an email! It is always great to hear how the work of the Lord is continuing throughout the world every single day!
