Week 58: That Canadian Life

You know you're becoming a Canadian when you have to roll down the windows of the car at -10(about 14 degrees, 18 below freezing) in the morning. happened to us today and I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry... but other than that our week was pretty interesting and somewhat uneventful. We saw the Northern lights again, although this time they were right above Edmonton from our angle so my camera couldn't pick them up. We also did service for this lady who had us build a shelf and a TV stand that took forever, but she wants to take the discussions and come to church once the new one in Beaumont opens up! So that was a positive experience! I was also challenged to a state/province-capital challenge from a member. so we had to name the provinces and capitals and they had to do the states( because they thought we didn't know anything) and we won! so now they are buying me an American flag for the apartment!

I also gained a lot of respect for seminary teachers this week, because we got to teach seminary for 3 days! First day was all right, second day was awful, everyone was dead and basically not paying attention(so probably a lot like me when I was in seminary) so the third and last day, we bought them timbits (basically donut holes) and we went in with fake mustaches and played Jeopardy. That turned out a lot better! But it was a lot of fun!

quote of the week is from Brigham Young "If you can find a truth in heaven, earth, or hell, it belongs to our doctrine. We believe it; it is ours; we claim it."

Scripture of the week comes from 2 Corinthians 13:11 
" 11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."
As we strive to be perfect and keep the commandments, be unified so that there is no contention among us, therefore living in peace, God will be with us always, as will the spirit as we go through this mortal journey.

Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
