This week was seriously the best thing since sliced bread... no joke.
So many exciting things to report I don't even know where to start!

Okay well the most exciting news: SABRINA GOT BAPTIZED ON SATURDAY!!!! It was the best thing of my entire life. Honestly,  Sabrina was so prepared it's ridiculous-- we had only been teaching her for like a month and now she is officially a member of the church. Just seeing her progress in the gospel has helped my testimony grow, she has so much faith! Like she believed everything that we talked about and said that the spirit was confirming it to her and when we talked to her right after her baptism she said that she felt so good and couldn't wait to be confirmed to receive God's spirit. Man, I just love her. So ya, the baptism went awesome!

Her friend Ryan, who introduced us to her got to the the baptizing and it was just awesome. Sabrina is just the best. And it was super cool cause she was actually supposed to go to Australia for 4 months this week but somehow it got changed to next month and she said that she knew it was because she was supposed to get baptized. So cool. Love that girl. And she's doing great. The confirmation was also one of the coolest things! HA baptisms are just the best!

Ha, I could talk about the for forever but we did other fun stuff too. On Tuesday we were able to go to the temple with the whole North of the mission-- like 85ish missionaries. That was awesome! My first time doing a session in the Calgary temple and it was great! Seriously the spirit was so strong. Just think that many missionaries all in one session-- coolest experience! The temple is the best place in the whole world! Especially when you get to see all your friends in the celestial room all together. It was just an overall amazing experience!

We also picked up 4 investigators this week :) ha it's been a while so we were super excited about that. Qing Li, in our ward, is a convert of a couple years and we met with him this week and he brought one of his friends. We taught the Restoration and the spirit was super strong and his friend, James, wanted to learn more :) it was awesome! Then get this, Qing brought one of his other friends, Zeyu, to church yesterday. We had seen him before and shared a brief message with him but he came to church and we are meeting with him again this week. Ha Cha-Qing!!

When a member gives you this....

Qing-- gave me a cheesecake just cause. #blessingsonblessings

On Saturday we had a little bit of time so we went tracting, and we ran into a couple families that said that we could come back. We went back to this one house last night and the mom and the son, Boshra and Amere, sat down and we got to teach the first lesson to them. There is such a good spirit that comes every time you talk about the first vision, I love it. They are also from Pakistan and are wanting to explore Christianity. So we are super excited about teaching them again this week.

Our other investigators are doing well. We met with Tuan yesterday and he is still feeling good about May 20th :) We're super excited for him. 

Pretty much the work is moving along and it's the best. We have a bunch of potentials we're meeting with this week and our investigators are all progressing! It's awesome. The Lord is working miracles here!
Transfers are also this week so we are getting pretty antsy to see what's going to happen. We think that Sister Ho Ching should be staying but you never know-- but we've been praying for Ho-King to stay together so we'll see what happens!
Anyway, I'm doing really well. Can't wait to see your faces on Sunday. Still can't believe how fast that came up... but see ya on Sunday :)

Scripture of the week: 2 Corinthians 4:17-- For our light affliction, which is but for a moment. worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

Quote of the week: "When we link our suffering to an assurance of purpose in our mortality and more specifically to the reward awaiting us in heavenly places, our faith in Christ increases and we receive comfort to our souls." -Elder Evan A. Schmutz

Love you all!!!
Sister King :)
