Hello family and friends! I love you all dearly! This week has been crazy! So many great things, and some hard things, but such is life in the mission eh?
Dad! I can't believe you went to Timmy's! (Tim Horton's) That is cool :) I like their donuts and muffins. Yummm!
Things of this week seem to be a blur! We have enjoyed some beautiful weather! All in preperation for fall, the Canadian harvest, and Thanks Giving in October! It will be great!
Highlights of the week! Our New and Returning Members are doing so well! We met with the Bolibrucks again- the returning member couple that told Sister Maas and I they want to get sealed in the temple! We were hoping to see them at church yesterday, but they were unable to make it. :( But! We are excited to see them at General Conference! They are progressing well. This week, we will be teaching them and helping them to remember what the Plan of Salvation is all about! It's going to be sweet. We also met with the Sager's! Sister Sager was baptized this March, and Brother Sager is a returning member! They are great! They set a date to do proxy baptisms!! We are so excited to help them with their family history and get them to the temple- both for the first time ever! They were both at church this past Sunday. It was great to see them! Especially because Sister Sager hasn't been able to make it for some time now.
Another Highlight! I received an email from Mariyam *formally* Tooba! Her and Raman are officially married! I am so so so happy for them! They are both wonderful! I can't wait to see them again and give them both large hugs! :) I am grateful for them in my life!
For the past few weeks, Sister Edwards and I have been struggling with finding New Investigators- and many of our investigators seem to be a little flimsy. It has been a challenge. Saturday afternoon, we were out talking to people before the broadcast, and got yelled at a few times by various individuals. It was a rough day. Luckily, we were able to head off to the broadcast, and enjoy the safety of the spirit and sisters in the ward! It has been a rough patch, but I have and still am learning lots from it! The Lord knows what is going on. As we continue to do all that we can, blessings will come!
This next week is going to be crazy. We have so much going on! We are excited! There is, of course, General Conference to be excited about! As well, between Investigators, and New and Returning members, as well as active families, we already have 16 lessons planned. We are going to be running around like servants of the Lord with their head cut off. Basically, it will be a party! :)
I am excited!
Patience, Diligence, and Endurance in all things!
Love you lots! Have a great week and remember to take a few questions into conference!!
