Hey everyone! Alright first things first, Greenfield is not literally on fire haha. Unfortunately a lot of Alberta is, and who knows maybe Edmonton will be soon but I'm talking figuratively here. So much happened this week, it has been so awesome!!
|Meet Elder Jenson|
We have seriously been finding machines for the past few days! We have had more success tracting and street contacting in the past few days than I have had on my whole mission! We have really been focusing on some lower/middle income areas where there are lots of foreigners and refugees from Iran, Pakistan, Sudan, China, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Nigeria, you name it. Each of the past three days I have ran out of basically all the supplies I have in my bag to give people like pass along cards, Book of Mormons, pamphlets, etc. I don't know what it is but people have been so receptive! Just since Friday night Elder Jenson and I have found 15 potential investigators, probably half of them we taught the restoration to on their doorstep and gave them a Book of Mormon, and 2 new investigators. A lot of them are Muslim and pretty active in their faith, so I'm not sure how much real progress we will actually see from all those people. Since being here I have really noticed how kind most Muslim people are, they usually will listen to what we have to say even if they're not interested, and they are always super nice.

Another event that is noteworthy is talking with a new potential Darryl. We were visiting an inactive lady and her son/nephew/random guy living at her house (we don't know) came to the door and literally asked: "So.... Like... What do people have to do for you to baptize them? Is there just like a waiting list somewhere or what? Can I get baptized?" Hahaha apparently he has a Catholic girlfriend and wants to be able to relate to her more so he wants to get baptized... We are hopefully meeting with him tonight, should be fun:)
We were also able to finally do some good service for a potential this weekend! We helped a super nice elderly lady with her yard work, it was tons of fun and we got a lot of work done. Plus she gave us cookies, ice cream and apple juice afterwards:) I don't know if you folks reading this can feel it through what I have already told you but I am literally feeling like I'm being showered with blessings right now!! They never stop!
