This week we met with G again. She is a less active who we are basically treating like an investigator. She doesn`t know anything about the church. She came to church last week and loved it. We taught the first half of the Plan of Salvation in School. So we decided to finish the Plan of Salvation . We taught that and she understood and then she asked us a question about the Restoration. So we taught her the last half of the Restoration. It was such a good lesson! She is going to pray and read from the Book of Mormon and come to church again this week! She has been such a blessing in my life!
On New Years Eve we were meeting with Sister B helping her make lunch, because she is like 80. And we got a text from the Elders that said, ``Sister M` basement is flooding we need your help ASAP.`` So we told Sister B we had to go and rushed over. We were supposed to be helping this family move out later that night but we went over early to help. It was just us and the Elders. The family hadn`t packed up anything and when we got there the kids were still playing X-Box. The Elders were down in the basement and we were in charge of the upstairs. There was so much stuff and I didn`t know how we were going to move everything out that night because they had to be out of the house by the next morning. We called a few people in the Ward to see if they could come help but because it was New Years Eve they said they couldn`t. All of the sudden someone showed up with a trailer to put everything in. Then every 5 minutes after that everyone started showing up. It was amazing! There was over 30 people helping us move this family out and clean the house.New Years Eve and the Sturgeon Ward came out to help! It was incredible!
in Ward Council the Elders Quorum President said that he sent out an email to ask if anyone could come help to everyone in the ward and no one responded. So he thought that it would be him, his son, and the missionaries moving this family. It was amazing!!
we had District Meeting and a white Elephant Gift Exchange. Which was super fun! Then right after we went as a District to help a family move down by West Ed Mall, who is Anti. They were moving from Ontario and they don`t know anyone in Edmonton so when they saw us show up they were sooooo grateful! We moved them in in 45 minutes! By the end they told us they were going to have us over sometime for a party! They aren`t getting baptized but now when they hear anything about Mormons they will have something good to say about us!
we went to help out at Mission Prep! I love going there and helping the Youth! They are so much more prepared than I was when I went on my mission. They practice in Seminary and at Mission Prep! I love talking with the Youth and encouraging them to go on a mission because it is the best thing I have ever done in my whole life. I have learned so much that I probably never would have been able to learn had I not come on a mission. It is incredible!
I just want you to all know that I know this Church is true and I love this Gospel more than anything! I am so fortunate to be in Canada serving my Heavenly Father. Love you all!
PS I will joining the Facebook World by the end of the week. So please don`t try to message me on there. I will not message back. :)
Love, Sister Burton xoxo
