"How many grams of sugar have you had today?"


Okay, first of all... WELCOME TO THE FAMILY LITTLE RAE BAUER!!! Seriously so stoked about life right now, congrats Kenzie and Colby!

Anyway, this week was great to say the least. We were going, going, going nonstop! It was great!
This week consisted of interviews with President, MLC, 2 exchanges, a baptism and just a bunch of fun stuff!
We had interviews on Tuesday-- that was really good! I just love the Miles' so so much! Plus during my interview President said that he was going to write a book... so when that book comes out y'all better read it cause it'll be fire, plus maybe since he got that revelation in my interview he'll dedicate it to me. Probs not but it's worth hoping.

Wednesday was MLC-- SUPER SOLID! We had some really good discussions. We didn't really have anything new, all of our trainings were just ones that we have had in the past, but it was still super good. He said that we need to continue with the things that we're learning and make sure we are doing well at that before we move onto something else-- so we talked about teaching repentance and baptizing converts, effective studies, patience and the Doctrine of Christ. It was just an awesome meeting. Plus I got to see all ma homies, so that was pretty chill.

We went on exchanges with Sister Poll and Sister Robison (the other sisters in Taber) and that was actually super fun! We definitely were able to see some miracles! So Sister Poll said that her whole mission she hasn't been able to pick up an investigator even though she's done lots of finding. So we said a super sincere prayer to be led to someone who is prepared for us. We made a list from their potential investigators in their area book then we headed out. We prayed and picked 2 names, we went to the first and got a return appointment with them :) then I really like to knock on the surrounding doors too-- so we did that and we got into this house with this cute Native couple. We ended up teaching the Restoration and they said that we could come back too :) MIRACLES PEOPLE!! Then we went to the second name-- ha she was NOT interested at all, but it's still good cause we knocked on the surrounding doors and ended up getting a return appointment with 2 other families!! Oh man it was such a solid day! After that we went to a baptism that some Elders in our district had.

Ashley Hofman. She's like our only youth in Vauxhall, we took her on splits with us to a couple lessons this week.

That night we went out and taught our investigator David. He is super solid! He is a mennonite but is dating a lady in our Vauxhall ward. We went and taught him the first lesson and he loved it! There is so much potential with him! The only thing that we are worried about is that his church doesn't really like us all that much and we're worried that they are going to start saying stuff to him... but the church is true and he has felt the spirit so we'll see what happens!

On Friday night we drove up to Lethbridge for our exchanges. I got to have Sister Barlow come here with me :) That was real fun! And we had a really, really good day. We met with the Neufelds and with our new investigator Na. OKay, Na is just the best! We gave her the Restoration pamphlet last time we talked to her and she went through it hard core and was marking things that she liked and answering all the questions in the back. It was just a really good lesson with her, she is so prepared to hear about this gospel it's ridiculous!

So pretty much it was a crazy week full of miracles! Ha one funny moment of the week was when we were over at the Neufeld's-- the oldest son, Abe, was talking to me and he said "Sister King, how many grams of sugar have you had today?" And I asked him why and he said "cause you're always laughing and smiling." Ha so that pretty much made my day cause it's true. I am happy and laughing all the time cause I'm so dang happy, but it's not from eating sugar :) It's from going and being able to make other people happy. Anyway, that was just a fun moment.

Exchanges with Sister Poll and Sister Robison

Sister Taylor for the win. Sent me a tag, totally gonna keep it forever.

Reunited with my fav. I don't like doing splits every Sunday... 

Tender Mercy of the week: yesterday at our supper appointment I was talking to Brother Williams and he told me all about the BYU vs Gonzaga game. Literally the best news :) So that was real fun!
ANYWAYY... hope that you all have a fantastic week! And happy March! Can you believe that February is almost over?!?

Quote of the week: "We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy." -Albus Dumbledore (heard this in church yesterday and thought it was great)

Scripture of the week: Alma 26:14-15 Yea, we have reason to praise him forever, for he is the Most High God, and has loosed our brethren from the chains of hell. Yea, they were encircled about with everlasting darkness and destruction; but behold, he has brought them into his everlasting light, yea, into everlasting salvation; and they are encircled about with the matchless bounty of his love; yea, and we have been instruments in his hands of doing this great and marvelous work.

Love you all and have a great week!

Sister King
