This week was so cool! Sister Holmstead and I have been working on talking with as many people as we can each day, and we've seen so many tender mercies! I'll share a few of my favourite ones.
1. We were walking home one night, and there was a man on the other side of street. Sister Holmstead was like, "let's go for it!" We crossed and started talking to him, and it was a super good conversation! We taught him about the Book of Mormon and showed him a copy. He asked, "can I have that?!" He's going on a trip, but he said he'll call us when he gets home! (Fingers crossed )
2. We were coming out of a lesson from our investigator's apartment building. There was a man sitting at the other building across the driveway, so we went to go talk with him, but a lady came out the door and right to us. She asked who we were and what church we were from, so we explained and shared the Plan of Salvation pamphlet with her. She's going through a really difficult time in her life right now, and she wants to make some changes. She gave us her number and asked us to come visit her next Sunday!
Man, this week flew by so fast! On Thursday, we had MLC in Brampton, and it was so good! We learned a lot about how we can work better with members, because members are our best source for finding solid people to teach. We've been trying to figure out how to do that better in our area, so it was definitely an answer to prayers.
On Sunday after church, we had a lesson with Sam, and Bishop came. It was such a good lesson! We talked about the commandments and how we have a prophet on the earth today. As we talked, Sam shared with us some of his past experiences and how he's so excited to make changes to his life. He now has a baptismal date for July 15th! It's such a privilege to be teaching someone who is so humble!
Well, summer has officially come to Canada! We walked out of our apartment yesterday for church and it was already 30 degrees at 8:00. By the time we came out of church, it was 40 degrees! We're melting over here!
So Sister Holmstead and I tried a new food this week. We went to teach our investigator Suhil, who's from Syria (cool side note...we learned he's really really famous over in the Middle East for his art work! We're teaching a famous person! We're gettin' his autograph at the next lesson!) At the end of each visit, he always gives us something to drink, and this week it was flower juice. They apparently make a syrup out of flowers and put tons and tons of sugar in it. Then you mix it with water and it's basically like drinking flower flavoured sugar water, hahaha. We had TONS of energy for the rest of the day.
I hope you all have a great week!
