(Sorry, blog week posts out of order)
There are only 2 seasons in Canada...
Mi semana era más fina que los pelos de un sapo. I figured I would start off in Spanish this week to confuse you guys. Anyways, hola everyone - this week was absolutely great!!! We definitely saw a few miracles. The work is going well here in Slave Lake! Let me tell you guys about it.
Towards the beginning of the week we had a lesson with our investigator Bxxx and his family. He is a super awesome, kind, humble guy, and he has a rock solid testimony of the gospel. He has been out of town working for a while but he got back a few weeks ago and he's been coming to church regularly. He has quit drinking, smoking, and coffee and is super committed to the gospel. The only reason he isn't baptized yet is because he needs to get married, and he is probably waiting to get married until his girlfriend commits to the gospel so he can have an eternal marriage. They are one of those families that has a lot of kids from different past relationships... I think they have like 19 kids between the two of them haha. I've only met 9 of them.

So between them and two other investigators who came, we had 11 investigators at church!! So we were pretty stoked about that to say the least. We are teaching them all tonight and hopefully they will all be on date for baptism after we are done there;) So that was the main highlight of the week.
|Just for fun we did a "missionaries in snow" photo shoot :)|
Other than that we helped a couple people move as usual, did lots of pretty unsuccessful finding, and had a great lesson with our awesome investigator Lxx. He is super close to accepting a baptismal date in my opinion.
In other news at the beginning of the week it was super warm for a few days!! It got up to like 6 degrees Celsius it was so warm we didn't even need our jackets! 🌞 But now its cold again so everything that was melting is now frozen again, and there is literally ice everywhere! We have to walk super carefully all the time.
We also had a branch family history night, or at least attempted it. Other than us, the Parks, and the Relief Society president, only four people came haha. But some good definitely came from it. Before it started Elder Hunsaker and I were training ourselves on how to do it so we could help other people (I did like zero family history before my mission.... my bad), and I found 19 names to take to the temple!! That just goes to show if you think your family history is pretty much done already, there's probably a lot more work to be done, you just need to find it ;) Well I hope you all had a great week too:) I love you all, God loves you all, and the church is true ️ byeee
