Hi everyone! This week flew by so fast! Whenever I come to write these emails I always reflect on the week and what we did and I can't remember what day anything happened on because everything just blends together haha. Every day feels like a week and every week feels like a day... That's mission life for ya!

Anyways, this week was great. At the beginning of the week we had a district meeting in a town about an hour and a half away called Athabasca. It was a great district meeting, but sadly the highlight was probably my lunch haha. Let me just give a little brief cultural background real quick... Here in Alberta, we have these wonderful creations called donairs. The donair has taken over this part of Canada, there are donair/burger shops wherever you look. They put donair meat and sauce on literally everything, there are regular donairs,donair burgers, donair pizzas, donair salads, donair poutine (French fries with cheese and gravy, another Canadian delicacy), etc. Before district meeting I got a donair calzone, and it was probably about the size of my head, maybe a bit bigger. I know most of you probably don't have any idea what a donair is, but let me just say when I come back to the states I am bringing a donair shop with me. They are heavenly.
Other than that a whole lot happened this week because it was SO COLD on Saturday and Sunday especially. We couldn't do much because of the cold. On Saturday it was -30 with windchill all day... Yeah I'm not even joking. We still knocked on quite a few doors though. That night we did a little science experiment.... We threw boiling water off our balcony into the -35 degree weather and.... I'll just let you watch the video;) Yesterday my comp was sick most of the day so I basically just laid in bed and read scriptures and read about some of cool ancestors. We ended up doing a little work later in the day but not too much happened.

This email wasn't super spiritual so to finish off this already long email I would just like to let you all know that I have a simple and strong testimony of this gospel. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph smith was a true prophet, called by God to help restore the one and only Church of Jesus Christ to the earth in this last dispensation. I know that we have living prophets today, and I know that because I have prayed and received answers through the power of the Holy Ghost. I'm so grateful to have this gospel in my life and for the opportunity to share it with others! I love you all, and I hope you have an amazing January 19th, 2016-January 25th, 2016😛 thanks for all the support! Elder Bonny
