Hope you all are doing well. This week was a pretty normal week for the most part for us. There was one day that we got to go to Sherwood park, which is about 30 min. east of Edmonton to visit some YSA, and we were supposed to get fed by all of them. So we went to Boston Pizza for lunch around 1 because clearly we weren't thinking, then ate a big lunch at 3 with a Less active, and then at 5 we were supposed to eat again. So we said a prayer that we would be able to get it down, do what we had to do, and they ended up cancelling because they forgot. so that was a tender mercy. And this week we aren't getting fed near as much, so all things just kinda balance out in the YSA :)
I also had the opportunity this week to do a baptismal Interview for the Mandarin elders, which was a really cool experience. I got to go through all the questions while he had an interpreter there, so it was different, that's for sure. It was cool to be able to see the desire that he had to come closer to our Saviour through baptism, even though it was in a completely different language.
We had a Social Media Fireside last night for all the members in the Edmonton area in preparation for the Book of Mormon Musical coming. We will also have members following us around all day next Saturday chronicling our day taking pictures and uploading them to social media, so we are pretty excited about it. It should bring a lot of interest to the church. Good or bad, maybe it will get people interested in talking to us.
Quote of the week is from Benjamin Franklin "Anger is never without reason, but seldom a good one."
Have a great week
Keep it real,
