|Happy Red Dot Day to me 😀 |
2 months already gone (WEIRD)
We really were blessed. We weren't hurt at ALL. And of all the places to crash a car, at the driveway of a member's house is the best place ever. We were out in the outskirts of Tofield where it's just a bunch of farms. We had planned on visiting a bunch of people that live out in the outskirts since we were out there anyways, but every time we'd tried to see them before, they wouldn't answer the door. We seriously
would have just been stuck if we'd crashed at anyone else's house. The
members were great though. They helped us move it out of the trees a ways, helped us get a tow truck, still fed us supper, and let us in on their family tradition of making Santa cookies while we waited. ❤️

We decorated probably about 100 cookies. 🙈🎅
We had a lesson with another of our investigators all about Joseph Smith and prophets and I loved it. I know Joseph Smith was called of God to restore this church. I just know it. Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet today. I just know it. The more I study and search these things out, the more I just...know.
We got to watch the broadcast of the Montreal temple rededication on Sunday. It was so nice to feel the Spirit of the temple. We're too far away to get to go to the Edmonton temple, but Ioved being a part of it again, even if it was just by extension. I love the temple ❤️
We went to a funeral on Saturday for a man in our branch. He'd been suffering health-wise for a long time, so it was a happy/sad kind of thing. A lot of what was said about him was so inspiring though. Even though he had so many health problems, he always came to church. He'd been wheelchair bound for years and had muscle spasms all through church that looked like he was ceasing, but he knew he needed church, so to church he came. It kind of makes all other excuses to skip church look pretty lame. I was asked to conduct the music, so it was way cool to be a part of his memorial.
Peace and blessings ✌
P.S. A temple recommend was required to watch the rededication, so our investigator Roni who comes to church every week, had to miss out last Sunday. We decided to have a little mini church service with her so we went and sang hymns, had prayers, and gave talks. She had tried to make a cake the day before and had accidentally set the oven to broil instead of bake and had burnt the whole cake. She said she hadn't thrown it out yet so we could go old-school and have a burnt offering since we couldn't have the sacrament. 😂😂 It was SO. FUNNY. Maybe a little sac-religious, but so funny
