The sun will come out...

Somtime right? haha Just kidding, it finally came out again this weekend and melted almost all the snow!!!! It got all the way up to 11 C!!  Sunshine really does just make you happier. :)
This week was pretty good! I caught like a cold so I was kind of laid up for a day, BUT I'm feeling good and recharged now! :) Me and Sister Nunez have been working pretty hard! This week we went street contacting/door knocking and gave out 6 copies of the Book of Mormon! I love how diverse Calgary is! Out of the 4 copies of Book of Mormon we gave out on Friday, one went to a man from Ontario, second to a woman from the Phillipines, Third to a woman from Romania, and fourth to a man from Libya! And they all live on the same street! I was like what the heck where am I?!  It was so cool!
This week we picked up a new investigator! She has investigated the church before (like 2005) and we called her up and asked her if she would like to meet with us and she said yes!! So we're going to start teaching her more. Maria and Sara are doing good too, I asked them this week if they would get baptized but they didnt say yes.....but they didnt say no either. Ha I love them, we're still teaching them.
This week was General Conference, where instead of going to church, all the church members of the world gather together to hear fromt the general authorities of the church via broadcast. And it was so good! We watched on a projector at our Stake Center. All of the talks were amazing! I love how sometimes it feels like theyre talking especially for you. Here i'll attach the link so you can watch some of it, it's recorded and now online. :) Enjoy
Things are going good up here :) The sun is shining again so that pretty much just makes me feel like a hundred bucks.
I hope that all of you are having an amazing start of your week. Keep your heads up! God will support you in all things, if you let him! Alma 38:5 (Book of Mormon) 
5 And now my son, Shiblon, I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your atrust in God even so much ye shall be bdelivered out of your trials, and your ctroubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
God has our backs :) He loves you.
And I love you ! Have a terrific week!!!!!
Love your Favorite Curly headed missionary,
Sister Connor!

Ha it has been so cold and snowy again! I got like one week of spring happiness, then Calgary froze over again. This week was so good! It went by so fast though. The farther along I get in my mission the quicker time seems to go. Today I have been out now for 6 months!!  Say what?! ha That means I only have 12 more left to make amazing!! Time is running out! Tomorrow is transfers and me and Sister Armstrong both got transfer emails. It will be a surprise where I end up ha. I feel like over the past 6 months Heavenly Father has taught me how to be adaptable with all the changes I've gone through. I'm excited.
This week we taught Bernard again, and he came to church!. ( The man from Ghana) That guy really knows his Bible. Ha before we started to teach him Sister Hooker asked "Is it okay if we say a prayer?", ha but Bernard must have heard "Will you say a prayer?" Ha he bowed his head mid sentence and started to pray. Ha me and Armstrong just looked at each other like oh! uhhh.... and then bowed our heads haha. AND THEN he like whispered his amen at the end so we didn't hear it so were just sitting there on the couch heads bowed in silence. Finally I opened one of my eyes and was like "oh! amen!" haha took all I had to not giggle the whole rest of the lesson. Ha I am THE WORST at containing my laughter once it starts now. Last night we were teaching a family home evening lesson and this little 4 year old boy was sitting on his knees on the chair next to me at the table.  So Sister Armstrong's teaching the lesson and explaining how we can bless our families and he just rips this huge fart right in the middle of it. I was like whoa!! ha it like startled me it was so loud. Ha but I didn't want to laugh cause his parents didn't laugh, ha then he whispers "EXCUSE MEEEEEEE" , I could barely talk the rest of the lesson because if I opened my mouth I would just laugh uncontrollably. I love the kids in my areas, they are so cute and funny and I love to just lay on the floor with them and play with their Ninja Turtles and dinosaurs. These are the Crawleys, they are so much fun and so entertaining, and theyre American, so I really like them :).

We went to the temple this week! :) it was amazing! Of course it was a full on winter storm though the whole way there /: A lot of members of my old ward work at the temple and I got to see them!!! I was so happy! I just gave them huge hugs.
Last night a Filipino family in our ward taught us how to make spring rolls from scratch! :) They were delicious I'm pretty sure I ate at least 25, before the meal even started! ha when you roll them if they break you get to eat them. Ha and since it was our first time, lets just say we ate a lot of them. So good though, I left so full!
Well, I love you all so much! Talk to you next week!
Scripture of the week:
Nahum 1 :7 from the Old Testament
Love you always!
