Another crazy week in Taber town....

Hey familia!

Another crazy week down here in Taber town!! We've been real busy lately, which is the best thing in the entire world.

Tuesday we were in Medicine Hat cause we had to train out there at that zone training meeting, on the way home we stopped by and had a BOMB lesson with H. She is progressing so much! She wants to be baptized and come to church so badly, but we're still working on her husband. But God is a God of miracles, so it will happen we just need to be patient :)


Wednesday we spent the day in Lethbridge cause we had both of our ZTM's there. Plus it was Sister Sims' birthday!!!!! So that was a party. Seriously have never had so much dessert in my entire life. Ha that's what I get for trying to embarrass Sister Sims-- I kept telling everyone that her birthday was coming up so we got like 50 cakes and stuff... why people think they should give 2 sister missionaries a whole cake is ridiculous... ha but don't worry, we've been regifting :)

(when you are having your 4th dessert of the day...........)

Ha this is for you mom-- how I really feel about cats!

My girl Miley

Miley and Alexis... aka the cutest girls in the whole world.

The birthday celebration was real :)

Exchanges with Sister Russell-- she's only been in the field for 2 weeks and is killing it!!

I loved the training that we got to do with one of the Lethbridge zones-- we just got to talk all about patience. In PMG there is a section on patience and we just matched up some of our favorite scriptures about patience with each sentence:
"Patience is the capacity to endure delay, trouble, opposition, or suffering withough becoming angry, frustrated, or anxious." -- D&C 123:17
"It it the ability to do God's will and accept His timing." --Mosiah 24:15
"When you are patient, you hold up under pressure and are able to face adversity calmly and hopefully." --Alma 34:40-41
"Patience is related to hope and faith-- you must wait for the Lord's promised blessings to be fulfilled." --Alma 17:11
"You need patience in your everyday experiences and relationships, especially with your companion." -- D&C 98:26
"You must be patient with all people, yourself included, as you work to overcome faults and weaknesses." --Alma 26:27

So ya, patience is just real important and I was happy that we were able to train on it because I learned so much for myself!

We were also able to go on exchanges with Sister Zimmerman and Sister Russell. We brought them both to our area, and it was a super solid day.We had a couple of appointments fall through bit such is missionary life right? So we just kept on working and it was great!

We had a really good lesson with or investigator Na this week. She is so solid. She's from China and doesn't really have a religious background at all-- we taught her the plan of salvation this week and she just loved it. She has a 2 year old son and is expecting another one, so she loves that we talk about how families can be together forever. It's great. Ha when we were getting ready to leave she asked us if we had another book that she could read (the pamphlets) cause she was so excited to learn more. So we gave her the gospel of Jesus Christ one and she was so excited, it was adorable.

We were able to have supper with Helena this week as well. Her whole family came over to our ward mission leader's house and we had a good meal then we taught a lesson. It was great. That family is golden-- I could go on about how much I love them. 

So ya, this week has been really good. We get to have zone conference this week so that will be real fun.

Scripture of the week: 2 Nephi 2:25-- Adam fell that men might be; and men are that they might have joy.

Quote of the week: "The impressions on the soul that comes from the Holy Ghost are far more significant than a vision. It is where the spirit speaks to spirit and the imprint upon the soul is far more difficult to erase." -- Joseph B. Wirthlin

Love you all and hope that you have a fantastic week.

Sister King :)
