Hey again. Dang.... This week was packed with eventful things and chaos! It's probably gonna be a long email haha I apologize in advance.
Friday morning we were finally able to meet with Ron and his family! They are an investigator family who were super close with the last missionaries and were showing a lot of promise, but then transfers came and they all got sick and we weren't able to meet with them for a while. Friday morning though we went over and met Ron and his two kids Joshua and Jordan. His wife Lisa was working. They are super awesome though:). Ron got into some anti-mormon material a while ago and now because of the things he read he has a few deep concerns about things that I honestly have no idea how to respond to. He says he wishes he could just "un-know" what he knows and accept everything and be happy but he needs his concerns answered. We are trying to set up a lesson in a members home who used to be a general authority so he can answer his concerns and explain things. Prayers for him and his family would be good;)

Sunday was the usual 9 hours of church, and I gave a talk in Rutherford sacrament meeting on repentance. I was kind of nervous before I gave it because there were SO many people there. It was a missionary farewell for one of the most popular Mormon girls in Edmonton, so it was basically like stake conference haha, and the whole stake presidency was there. But I got up and the nerves were instantly calmed and I feel like I did ok! Oh, and Anne Marie came to church and liked it:). She just has issues with how much we talk about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith... hopefully she can get over that.
|Adios for now E. Hlavaty. One of my fav people I've met on the|

Well that about sums up this week. The Lord is definitely making sure things stay interesting for us and keeping us on our toes! This week is going to be a fun challenge:) Love you all!
Weekly scripture: of course Matthew 11:28-30: 28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
