By His Grace

lots has changed this week and lots has happened!

we got transfer calls this morning and I'll be taking over Forest Heights....aaaaand I'll be training a new sister.  I'm terrified to say the least.  If I can remember the bus routes and remember how to be a missionary, things should turn out okay.  :)  

Peggy has been struggling.  Her mom is in the hospital, so we're holding things off for a bit.  

We taught George a couple times, and now he's back to work for two weeks in the oil patch.  He has such a powerful conversion to Christ, it's incredible.  We also found out that a woman in the ward who is also from Ghana, Sister Lamptey, speaks Twi!!!  The same language as George!  We're so stoked to get them connected.  George is reading the Book of Mormon and praying very fervently about it.  After he gets off work, he said he'll come to church to try it out. :)  

Mary came to church yesterday!  We taught her a couple weeks ago after a member from Spruce Grove told us she wanted a visit.  She's already accepted that she'll have to give up coffee.  It blows my mind how prepared she is for the restored gospel.  

We were able to talk to so many people this week on the bus.  Heavenly Father is too good to us, he places so many people in our path that are seeking for truth, all we have to do is open our mouths.  We had supper with Sister Lamptey, and her enthusiasm for the gospel and for missionary work is inspiring.  She just came from a baptism of someone she found for the missionaries to teach and you could just see the light and joy in her eyes!  Sharing this gospel is what brings true joy, i'm telling you!  If you want to be happy, share your testimony.  It's as simple as that.  

We get to take the two new sisters out tomorrow evening to do some tracting/street contacting for a bit, it should be an adventure!  

Sister Trujillo sprained her ankle pretty bad, and my allergies (since when do I have allergies?..dang alberta) have been acting up so we look and sound a little pathetic. *cough cough* *limp limp* but "no unhallowed hand [or twisted ankle or runny nose or irritated throat]  can stop this work from progressing!!!!"  

also, fun happening this week, I am officially getting a tan.  I know this because I noticed a tan line from my glasses this morning on my nose.  #tendermercies


i'm pretty nervous about training.  But I have found comfort in knowing that I am not alone in this calling.  I know I am just a weak little 20 year old missionary, "Nevertheless The Lord God showeth us our aweakness that we may know that it is by his bgraceand his great condescensions unto the children of men, that we have power to do these things."

With the Lord, I can do all things. :)  I want you all to know that I know, without a doubt in my mind, that this gospel is true.  Jesus Christ is with you, every step of the way, even when you don't realize it.   "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." [John 14:18]

Onward, ever onward.
