Tractin in Taber Town

Hey so I miss you guys and everything but this thing where the time keeps getting faster and faster is really bumming me out... like it's going wayyyy too fast. 

This week has been a really good one!
Just some of the things that we did!

On Tuesday we drove to Medicine Hat for their zone training meeting-- Sister Sims and I got to train on the Sacrament. That was SUPER awesome! What better thing to talk about than the sacrament and the Savior?! On the way home we stopped at this drive-in, looked a little sketch but it was actually really good! Diners, drive-ins and dives maybe?! 

Wednesday we had our zone training meetings in both of our Lethbridge zones-- those went really well too. We got to have a discussion about the mission broadcast a couple weeks ago, all about teach repentance and baptize converts. That went really well. We were a little nervous cause our whole training was just a discussion, but everybody participated so that was good!

Went bowling for P-day last week... killed it!

Found my brother in the mission. Elder King :)

Helena gave us this recipe for cookies...
I think they look more like chicken nuggets but they still tasted good.

Ha. Brother Chris Rogers. He's this old British guy who is in our Vauxhall ward, he got admitted into the hospital and we went to see him this week. Never laughed so hard in my entire life!

Exchanges with Sister Halliday-- don't ask me why there's a pumpkin. Also, she goes home this week... super weird!!

So the Neufeld children had a baking competition and they wanted me and Sister Sims to judge it... that was a party! These kids really are the cutest! Oldest to youngest: Abe, Nancy, Peter, Pancho and Isaac. Love em to death!

Okay so knocking on doors is one of my least favorite things in the whole world-- maybe it has to do with the fact that we got chased off by a dog this week... ha but that was actually super funny. Anyway, Sister Sims and I decided that from here on out we are going to make a concerted effort to tract for at least 30 minutes every day. But we're going to make it the most effective by praying for where we need to be. So we tried that out this week. And holy cow, ha the Lord really is in His work! So we felt like we should go to this specific area and we knocked on maybe 10 doors. Out of those 10 doors we have 3 potential families that told us that we could come back, an old lady who said we could come share a message with her and we ended up knocking on one of our less actives that we haven't been able to talk to... he said that we could come back too. HA and this happened all in about 45 minutes-- it was pretty cool.

Another cool story from knocking this week- so we've been working with this girl named Emily, she told us that she was moving but that she didn't know her address yet cause it was super last minute. So she moved and now her phone doesn't work... she pretty much dropped off the face of the planet and we have no idea where to find her. BUT we went to her old place- it's this little four-plex and we decided to knock on the other apartments to see if they knew where she was. Ha we got the door slammed twice but the last door we knocked on this cute Chinese lady answered the door. Her name is Na and we talked to her, she didn't know where Emily was but she did say that we could come back! So we set up an appointment with her for this Thursday. That was pretty cool.

This upcoming week should be pretty good cause we're meeting with all these super solid potential investigators, we're pretty excited about it.

Oh, ha on Wednesday we picked up 2 new investigators!! This kid named Luke works with our Ward Mission Leader's wife, and one day he just came up to her and said that he wanted to learn more about Mormonism... ha so we gave him a call and met with him. But get this, he brought a friend as well, Brady. And he said that he just came along for the ride but he ended up asking lots of questions and being super interested! We taught them the restoration and gave them a Book of Mormon and they both agreed to meet with us this week! So that was pretty dang cool!

So on Saturday night our phone was buzzing off the hook.. all these members were texting us cause SISTER SIMS' SISTER IS ENGAGED! So that was pretty fun! Ha even though I don't really know them, I feel like I do cause I mean I'm with Sister Sims all the time... but that was kinda some exciting news!
Anyway, transfers are this week... hoping that I get to stay another one here with Sister Sims-- we've got so much work going on here I need to be a part of it. I'll let you know what happens :)

Quote of the week: "Although His time is not always our time, we can be sure that the Lord keeps his promises." -Henry B. Eyring

Scripture of the week: D&C 121:7-8 My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; and then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes.

Love you all so much! :) Have a fabulous week!
