|We tried to take a selfie with the rainbow. |
Didn't work obviously but it was still cute.
I can't let another week go past without talking about President Pattison! President and Sister Manion are back in Texas doing "Larry and Gail Manion" things and President and Sister Pattison are here to run the Canada Edmonton Mission! It's been great! He's already gotten

DO IT JUSTICE.
IT WAS SO BRIGHT.
So our investigator from last week that we weren't sure how old she is, is 18! So we get to teach her :) We saw her again and everything we taught seemed like it was definitely making sense in her head, but she kept saying "I just don't think I'm ever gonna be religious." She wouldn't come right out and say that she didn't want us to come over again though, so I kind of just kept talking until in the end we had another appointment set up with her this week haha Also, she loves Pokemon Go. They haven't technically released it in Canada, but people are downloading it from some other sketchy server. Literally so many people are obsessed with it haha
We had a great lesson with one of our less-actives this week. Her house is always full of family and friends running around all over the place, so the lessons are always a little crazy. Her dad was home this week though and sat in with us. After we said the opening prayer he stood up and walked in to the kitchen, so we thought he was leaving (which would have been a bummer) but he just got up to ask everyone to go to another room so we could have a lesson :D It was great! We taught about families and it was seriously such a blessing to have him there. He had great testimony to add about how important the gospel is for families.

One more Sunday miracle, we'd been in contact with a former investigator but hadn't been able to set a time to meet with her. She randomly texted us during church and said we could come over that night. She lived in that same town that we almost never go to, so we booked it over there Sunday night and had a lesson with her. She learned for years back in high school, but never felt like she "knew" that she was supposed to get baptized. We had a really great lesson with her, but she's still weary of committing to take the lessons again. We said we'd give her a few days to think about it and she said, "Well, I'm pretty busy the rest of July, but I should totally be free starting August." Hmm. We're pretty sure she's gonna let us over again haha
Peace and Blessings
P.S. We were walking out of one the church buildings as the Mandarin Elders were walking up to it with two other people with them. The thing is with this particular church building, not many people actually have keys to get in, there's just a particular way to *ahem* finagle your way in. The Elders asked if we had the key and we said no, cause well, we don't haha They didn't have a key either but were fully aware of the finagling that they could do to get in, they just didn't necessarily want the other two people to be aware. One Elder said, "Ok well I'll go try our key (code for I'll go finagle) and you guys stay here and get introduced." We politely chatted with these two people (one of them was named Pegasus, so I mean, that's incredible) when the Elder came back over and announced that the key didn't work. I gave him confused look and he said under his breath "Or I'm apparently not strong enough." He borrowed our key to try again and tried ehh, finagling, a little harder. He got it and came back over and said "you guys must have the magic key." I agreed and did my best to hold in my laughter until we had at least pulled out of the parking lot.
