This is Halloween :)

Well hey there fam!

This week was super awesome! I can't believe that it is already Monday/Halloween/almost November!! Seriously it's so crazy. Also, super fun cause I opened up my mission call a year from yesterday, so that's pretty fun.

But anyway, life is good! One thing that was super cool yesterday is that Tammy, our less active that we have been working with for a while got a calling! She's working in the nursery, but it was pretty cool to see that she is active and excited about getting a calling in the ward. So that was pretty cool.

THE Calgary Tower Burger... it did NOT disappoint!

We had some pretty good lessons this week as well. Jasmyne is on date for baptism on November 19-- so we are helping to prepare her for that. She has really been progressing but her wheelchair is broken so she hasn't been able to make it out to church in a little bit, but that is getting fixed so we should be good.

Tender mercy of the week! So at interviews with President on Wednesday, Sister Miles talked to all of us and said that we need to get our flu shots... bummer. Still hate needles. BUT on Saturday we went to see if we could get them so we went to this place and asked if we could get them. We didn't have any proof of residence with us but the pharmacist that was there said that we didn't need to do any paper work or anything. He was from Korea and he had talked to missionaries on the streets there a couple times and he knew that we were doing something good, so he just let us get them. And I didn't die, so that was good too.

We went on exchanges and I got to go with Sister Jakobi to Arbour Lake (it's like 30 minutes North), and we were going to stop by some of their less actives when this name jumped out at me. His name was Stan. So we stopped by and guess what... he is Tammy's dad! So we got to talk to her parents for a little, which was super fun! But what are the odds of that happening? It was pretty cool.

​Exchanges with Sister Jakobi!

There are like SUPER nice cars everywhere!! This is one we saw yesterday.

Outside of Ron's house-- the actor for Disney

Fun moment too; we have this super awesome potential investigator named Ron Nash. He is an actor and has been in a bunch of Disney movies... He has so many pictures with a ton of famous people and get this, he has pretty much like every Disney movie ever! So you could say that we're gonna baptize him cause he's already got life half right :) but ya, seriously he's living my dream life. He said that when I get back from my mission if I give him a call he could hook me and my family up with some free Disney passes. So you can bet your bottom dollar that's what we're gonna do!

Waiting for the Elders to open the FHC so we can email you guys :)

We also started up this youth game night thing in our ward and it was SUPER solid. We had a ton of people there and we got to play ball and now we have a couple more potentials. So basketball is the way to baptisms, I have a testimony of that :)

This is as close to a moose that I have seen in Canada...

Anyway, this week was just full of good things! We have a lot more potential investigators so that's pretty exciting. Just living and loving life.

Quote of the week: "Humility is the key to inspiration"... ha gotta love it. but here's another "we, in our imperfect view, sometimes focus on our imperfections and then despair because we think we'll never measure up. But our Savior, Jesus Christ, sees us as we can become. As we allow His Atonement to work in our lives, He will shape us into masterpieces who will one day live with the King of Kings." -- Ellen C. Jensen

Scripture of the week: Mosiah 24:13-15 Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me... And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions... yea the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.

Love you all,

Sister Ashley King
