FEBRUARY ......what?!

Welp, another month GONE! Time needs to definitely slow its self down a bit. I cannot believe how fast its slipping through our fingers. This week literally felt like a blink, a real quick blink ha

This is the Three Sisters peak trio that I see everyday outside our house. I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS.

Here's what happened this week! :)

On Monday it was 10 C outside. Which is about 52F ! I know! Ha it was glorious, yknow I've been in Canada a long time when a Vega$ Girl says 52 is warm. Ha we were so excited that we had a BBQ that night with our member! She's the greatest. We ended the night with a MIRACLE.

Here's what happened;

We drove over to see some of our potential investigators in Canmore. They live across the hall from one another, so we figured our chances were pretty high to catch one of them. Walk in the building knock on the first door, dogs go nuts, no answer :( So we turn around and knock on the other door, dog goes nuts, someone answers :) So we're standing there talking with her about church and about the gospel for quite some time and just as we're ending our conversation, our other contact comes fumbling through the door with a TON of groceries. So of course we help her after convincing her to let us help her carry in a car full of stuff, and we're in her kitchen helping her put everything away and she totally apologized for not talking to us recently and said "I hope you girls know that the doors not closed for you two, I just have to figure some things out first" I was like :O oh.... :D hahha so that's good! Totally Heavenly Fathers hand lining everything up just so perfectly!

This is Banff on a typical Monday night:

Tuesday was...........................ha well, Tuesday I was sick. From early morning until early morning the next day. Like I literally thought I was going to die, obviously! Ha but I'm typing this so its proof and that I'm okay ha. But I'll tell you how much I love the Priesthood! Tuesday I spent all day laying down; couch, bed, floor, anywhere. We had Zone conference the next day and I really kinda needed to be alive, and in Calgary. So I got myself together and hopped in the car with Sister Murphy and took off for Calgary. And I was just feeling worse and worse. We were spending the night with the 17th sisters and I asked Sister Murphy if she could ask our District Leader Elder Hill to come give me a blessing. I fell asleep and then the next thing I knew they were there, and my fever was raging. Elder Hill and Elder Fekete gave me a blessing of healing and comfort and man oh man did I need to hear those comforting words. :) I quickly fell asleep again and then, like clock work, the next morning my fever broke and I WAS FINE. Ha felt like nothing had ever happened! I love the power of the priesthood so much and definitely have gained such a strong testimony of it out here.

Welp, Wednesday was zone conference, and it was GLORIOUS. I love just being around other missionaries and hearing from our mission president. Everything about it is just so great. We spent the whole day in Calgary learning and growing! Then later that night after we had driven back home we had an awesome lesson with our recent convert David! Who's just doing amazing! So blessed to know him holy cow. 

The rest of the week just flew on by! But know that it was good! Take my word for it, the Lord is hastening his work for sure! 

Me and Sister Murphy carried a bed frame, a box spring and a mattress down these stairs. Many prayers were answered that hour hahaha. We love service though! You know what King Benjamin says in the Book of Mormon, " 17 And behold, tell you these things that ye may learnwisdomthat ye may learn that when ye are in the service ofyour fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God."

Ope, y'know just walking in our area trying to find our friend in the woods haha, you'd be surprised how many times I've used back woods trails as my main way of transportation out here. So beautiful. How'd we get so blessed to live on this Earth? ;)
