TaBURRRR!

Have you ever had that feeling where you walk outside, breathe in, and your nostrils instantly freeze? Cause I have!! Ha hey there fam! It's a little weird emailing on a Wednesday, but this past week and a half has been real good!




The weather got real cold real fast. We had a meeting with our Stake President this morning at 7 and when we went outside it was -27... (celsius of course) but ya, it was real cold.



The past couple days have been pretty crazy. President and Sister Miles came down to Taber for our Stake conference. It was really fun to see them again. They both spoke at the Saturday evening session, and it was real good. WE also went on splits with our Stake President's wife-- Sister Baldry. We went and saw this less active in our ward. Him and his wife are going through a lot right now but we talked about the Atonement and he ended up opening up to us and completely bearing his testimony to us-- it was really cool, the spirit was so strong! And Sister Baldry was the PERFECT person to bring with us!

Smiling through the pain-- it was frigid!


So we meet with this Mennonite family-- they've been taught by missionaries for a while, but they are really starting to progress. We went over there and watched the Restoration and the mom told us afterwards that she believed it was true, then she corrected herself and said that she felt it was true. SO DANG COOL! We can see the spirit working with her!



Anyway, on Monday we had zone conference. Elder Weatherford Clayton is doing a tour of our mission right now and he was at our conference. It was really good! We talked all about the Plan of Salvation and how we can simplify our teaching.  It was just a really good meeting. Then right after that we drove up to Calgary because of MLC the next day. President told us to go up the night before because the roads are starting to get pretty bad, but we made it safe and sound. And we got to stay with MAMA BLAKE! Seriously the best night ever. Brought back so many memories of when she was training me, I loved it.

Saying bye to Mama Blake-- she goes home at the end of December


Yesterday was MLC-- Elder Clayton was there for that as well. It was another really good meeting. We talked a lot about what the needs of the mission are for 2017. I can't believe that it's already December. Christmas is going to be here before we know it! 

Exchanges in Brooks with Sister Leonard-- she is the cutest!

Helping decorate some members Christmas tree :)

Our little Christmas Corner :)

​Got my Christmas package from the fam!

Ha got a couple letters in the mail this week-- this one was my favorite. Thanks Cubby!


WE GOT TO HOLD WEEK OLD GOATS!!! THEY ARE THE CUTEST THINGS IN THE WORLD!
 Plus, they're the fainting goats which makes it that much more fun.

This is what happens when you ask Pres. Miles to take a pic-- we about died.

Hanging with President and Sister Miles-- some of my favorite people in the whole world.



Anyway, lots of our week was just driving and meetings, but it was still really good. The people in Taber really know how to get you pumped for Christmas! I love it! Small town for Christmas!

Anyway, love you lots and hope that you all have a wonderful week!

Quote of the week:"Our Savior's Atonement does more than assure us of immortality... and give us the opportunity to be cleansed from sin by repentance and baptism. His Atonement also provides the opportunity to call upon Him who has experienced all of our mortal infirmities to give us strength to bear the burdens of mortality." -Elder Oaks

Scripture of the week: 2 Nephi 10:23 Therefore, cheer up your hearts, and remember that ye are free to act for yourselves-- to choose the way of everlasting death or the way of eternal life.

Love,
Sister King
