Hello friends,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Am I the only one that feels like 2016 just flew by? So weird! So happy for this upcoming year though, so many things to look forward to. I love that I get to start out the new year with just being a missionary. Best thing of my life.

Anywayyy, this week has been really good. I have loved the holidays but honestly ready to just get back into the normal swing of things. On Monday we were supposed to just hang out with members cause #boxingday so that was super fun. We went over to the Andersons. They are honestly just some of the best people in the entire world. Then we went and hung out with Don and Shawna Tanner. Ha we went to the church and played dodgeball. That was a party!

On Tuesday we found ourselves in Brooks with some of our sisters. We talked a lot about seeing miracles and then we challenged them and ourselves to pray for a miracle and then to text it to each other by the end of the day. So we were driving home from Brooks-- like a little more than an hour drive, and we decided that we should stop in Vauxhall. So we did. We drove around and were stopping by a couple potentials houses and a few less actives and while we were driving around we saw this lady like 3 times... and I have this little personal rule where if I see the same person twice I have to go and talk to them. I told Sister Taylor that and she pulls the car over and rolls down the window.... ha so that was cool. I started talking to this girl and said that we had seen her a couple times and that we felt like we should give her a Book of Mormon. She went on to say that she actually already had one and that when she is going through something hard she reads the Book of Mormon and finds a lot of comfort... WHAT?!?! So we got to talk about the Book of Mormon with her and she completely opened up to us and told us some hard things that she is going through, then she gave us her address and said that we could stop by. #MIRACLE!!! Seriously it was so cool! So we texted that to our sisters and they texted us with a miracle as well. They were out by their mailbox and a guy came up to them and said that he wanted them to teach him... #SERIOUSMIRACLES!!!! So that was pretty cool.

We did exchanges with some other sisters this week and that was super fun! Seriously there are just some amazing missionaries out here. I went with Sister Rumbolt, who is finishing up her training and I was just amazed by her. Seriously just learning so much from going on exchanges!

On Saturday we did some service and met with a couple old ladies and just talked with them. Again, President told us to spend Saturday and Sunday with members... so that's what we did.

It's been a really good couple of days for us. Lots of our investigators and people we are working with are coming back from holiday this week, so we're pretty pumped for that. Also, transfers are coming up this Thursday and we're just hoping that Sister Taylor can stay for another one, but we'll see what happens!

Anyway, love you lots and HAPPY NEW YEAR! About to make 2017 the best year of my life :)

Quote of the week: "It is the doctrine of Christ that allows us to access the spiritual power that will lift us from our current spiritual state to a state where we can become perfected like the Savior." -- Pres. Uchtdorf

So our mission started reading the Book of Mormon on Christmas and we're reading roughly 4.6 pages a day so that we can finish on Easter. We're going through and highlighting anything that refers to the doctrine of Christ: faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. It's amazing how much is packed in there!!

Scripture of the week: John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Love you all and have a great week!!

Sister King
