6 MONTHS.....

Wow, so it's already Monday again and I'm starting to get super worried cause the time is going by wayyyyy too fast!! 
I hit my 6 month mark on Wednesday, so to celebrate we were able to go to the temple. The Parkinsons, serving a couples mission, took us. That was really fun! It had been a while since both me and Sister Burnside had been to the temple so that was a really fun experience!

Temple day!!

I think that Elder and Sister Parkinson beat our jumping picture :)

On Monday we were able to meet with our recent convert. He has been working in Saskatchewan for a while so we hadn't seen him for a bit. It was great to see him and see how well he is! He's gone more than 70 days sober from everything! That is a major accomplishment and he wanted me to share with everyone that he is doing so well!  
Thursday was Sister Burnside's 3 month mark! How neat is that? Ha I feel like she just got here... my baby is growing up!

The teaching this week was a little slow. Summer is winding down so everyone and their dog is busy... which means we get to be creative with our time and try to find some people to teach! We've been going through our area book a TON lately and we always wish that we were teaching more lessons but I think that we did pretty good with our time. 

We were able to have a meeting with our Stake President, President and Sister Miles and our district. So that was really fun! We talked a lot about what we can be doing with the members to get them more involved and stuff, super great! Plus it's always good to be able to see President and Sister Miles. That night we had a fun relief society activity. It was really fun because I got to talk to a lot of the people that I've really grown close with over the past couple months... I'll probably be leaving Lethbridge in a week and a half so it was good to see all of them.
We were able to go to the Francis's for supper on Friday-- we made chimi-changas. So that was super fun. They really are too good to us.

This is Wendy!

On the way home the Parkinson's took us to this crazy little beach in the middle of nowhere!!!
Don't worry, we didn't touch the water or anything!!

Crazy moment of the week. We got a referral from this guy in Cardston to go and visit one of his friends who has been struggling a lot lately and is trying to find meaning in her life-- SCORE (that's every missionary's dream) so we go and see her and she happens to live in like THE sketchiest place I have ever seen! Smelled like drugs, beer and anything else that you can think of. So we were super scared to go in, but the girl came to the door and she is just adorable! She had gotten into a lot of bad things but she was super cute and loved meeting with us. We're meeting with her again next week-- this time probably somewhere else. But we made it out alive and it was a neat experience!

The Thompsons are doing great! Their health is going down hill a little bit so if you could keep them in your prayers that would be great! But they are just loving everything church related! It's great! Alex is doing wonderful as well! All my peeps here in Lethbridge are doing great!

We're teaching a little girl and she is so close to committing! So that is exciting!
Anyway, the work is going great and I'm just very grateful for the time that I have had in Lethbridge. Hoping that I can stay just one more transfer here but I think my time is coming to a close... but it's just that much more exciting to see where the Lord needs me next!

quote of the week: "being distinct and different from the world will draw some criticism, but we must anchor ourselves to eternal principles and testify of them, no matter the world's response." -Neil F. Marriott

Scripture of the week: Hebrews 12:1- Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

Love you all!

peace out (kip voice)
