Alrighty then.... where do I even begin with this week well, Tuesday we had Zone training meeting, that went alright I suppose haha, when you get 26 missionaries together it can tend to get a little hectic. But the training was delivered nonetheless! Wednesday we were able to head downtown for some good contacting... I placed a Mandarin Book of Mormon in Chinese!!!! it was awesome haha then we had our mission Christmas activity! all of the zones in Calgary met and we ate pizza and then the secret.... We got to watch MEET THE MORMONS!!!! can I say WOW! what a spectacular film! very well promoted and put together! :) very touching stories. My favorite would probably have to be The candy Bomber, and then the coach, then missionary mom! Oh backtrack to Tuesday, a member in the ward took us to her friends house who is looking for god in their life, and we were able to comfort and teach them and pick them up as 2 new investigators! they are sweet, Leo and Juana! from Columbia. So on Thursday we went back to teach them more, we talked on the atonement and the Plan he has for us, also gave them both blessings! :) come Friday we had interviews with president and we delivered mail to the zone. It was a nice comforting interview and reassuring in my eyes, President is a very inspired man!
Saturday came, and we attended our Stake Presidents Father's Funeral, he was 93, and an amazing man, it was a wonderful service, he reminded me of the Candy Bomber in a way, he received the DFC award. or the Distinguished Flying Cross. he served as a bomber in WW2 for the English air force... he will be missed. we then helped set up for the ward Christmas party and then WENT to the ward Christmas party and Leo and Juana also came with their 2 kids who are about 14 and 12. Then sunday church came, and sundays are usually all the same, we did go Visit Leo and Juana, gave them a Christmas basket before they leave for Columbia for the Christmas season! they were in such happier spirits then they were on Thursday, Its amazing to see the lord play a role in the lives of others! So that was pretty much my week in a nutshell! it was a pretty great one! :)
