|So we're at 8 months now? |
Does that weird anyone else out?
OH MY HEAVENS I LOVE RONI SO DANG MUCH. I DIDN'T KNOW HEARTS HAD THE CAPACITY TO LOVE PEOPLE SO MUCH. I LITERALLY FEEL LIKE THE GRINCH WHEN HIS HEART GREW SO BIG IT BROKE THE SCALE. I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
|We stopped by a new girl that moved into our ward |
and she and her brother gave us GIANT Mr. Freezes.
So happy :D
We got to help out at our favorite couple's wedding this week!! We helped decorate on Friday and then were in charge of all the food at the reception. It was ridiculous amounts of fun and it was cool to see two people so in love and happy. There was another older couple there, the Allred's,from Red Deer helping us in the kitchen and they were so insanely fun.
|The greatest couple in the world, |
Jon and Robyn McClung.
Our outfits may or may not
have perfectly matched their wedding colors.
Our lesson with Dene went really well. We talked all about the Holy Ghost and recognizing when God is trying to talk to us through the Spirit. At the end of the lesson I asked her what she thought now of how she's supposed to know truth and she said, "Pray about it and then feel the Holy Spirit." We didn't disagree.
There's a girl in Gateway that has just been feelin kinda down in the dumps lately so we bought her a McFlurry (ice cream makes everything better) and ran it to her on our way to help decorating.
We went and had lunch at Mucho Burrito
which is basically Canada's equivalent of Costa Vida
without the magical sweet pork.
Ice cream had to be had so we ran to Wendy's after.
I was clearly very happy with this decision.
We had zone conference this week and President said something along the lines of "WHO THE HECK ARE YA?" around 4 different times throughout the meeting. It was usually followed with "AND WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING HERE?" Don't misunderstand the all caps as anger at all haha He was just really trying to emphasize that missionaries are kinda weird. We put our life aside for a while to go to some new place and follow extra rules and not to talk to our families very often and talk to strangers allll the time. It's a weird thing. No lyin.
"Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life."
We share bus passes with the Elders
that also cover Mt. Pleasant and Gateway
and have to meet up
ridiculously often to trade them over.
we had to take a selfie at least once.
So they can come to recognize and have some semblance of an understanding of how loved they are. So loved that God, "spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all...For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Missionaries are trying to help people have the most important things that have ever been.
Peace and Blessings
I'm just as confused as you are.
An update on Harold. I know you were all curious. He's getting so big *wipes tear*
