Oh man. So much to write so little time! So this week was fantastic! We have totally gained the trust of everyone on the Ward Council! They love us. We have done so many things to help that trust build! It has been amazing! We are working so well with our Ward Mission Leader and from that we have seen the work here in Lakewood skyrocket.

Some other sweet things that happened this week was Elder Golden of the First Quorum of the Seventy came for Mission Conference! It was amazing! His main focus was trying to increase the number of baptisms in the mission. Everything he said hit home and helped me so much! It
was so great! He said so many times, "we cannot believe the publicities of Satan!" We CAN'T! He is so wrong! We need to trust our first thought! Our second thought is usually from Satan convincing us
not to do our first thought. Another thing he said was "if we are not exact we are not worthy of the power of God." That is a powerful statement! We have to be exactly obedient, especially as missionaries! Oh boy! It was such a good conference!!

We met with C and she is doing so great! We showed her a video called "Sunday Will Come" and she LOVED it! She took it literally and said that she needs to come back to church! It was an awesome lesson!
Yesterday we were able to meet with Z! It was an amazing lesson! We had a member with us and we read from the Book of Mormon. She is so in tune with the spirit and loves learning! Hopefully her and her two girls will be at church on Sunday!
We haven't been able to see T or S in a little while but they are doing good just super busy! We will see them this week!
K and N came to church again! We didn't meet with them last week but we are going to their house for dinner on Thursday!
Life is great here in Canada. It is September so apparently that means it is almost winter. All of the leaves are falling and it is definitely jacket weather. :/ someone told is it is supposed to snow
this weekend. We don't think it will. Well at least we are hoping it won't. All of my winter stuff is still packed away..I don't want to get it out yet.

Well I love you all!
