Hello everyone!!!! Happy week! So you may be wondering what is so good.... weeeeelll let me tell you.....


Now, of course I didn't get to be there, but he did email me this week and he said that he was baptized and I am so excited!!!! I have been working with him for 4 and a half months!!! YAY HIM!!!!

Okay so really that was something that I learned today so it doesn't count for my exciting week so here is more of the week.

1. Fab Friday - We had a Relief Society Activity in Auburn Bay ward! I wish I had taken pictures, but there were like 10 non-members there and a couple of less-actives in the ward!! We made fall and winter decorations and Sister Kolodisi and I took the cupcake decorating class with some members.

2. Stake Baptism - We had a Stake Baptism this week. 5 KIDS from Mahogany ward got baptized and we got to be there for the girl in Auburn Bay ward who got baptized.  She is super cute and we got to teach while they were getting dressed after and before the confirmation. It was a great opportunity to share the gospel with members, non-members and less-actives a like.

3. Random Member Present lesson - We were at dinner on Saturday and the member that we were with randomly asked us if we would like to teach a lesson to their non-member friend from Lethbridge. We got to have a great first contact with him and teach him a little bit about the Plan of Salvation and the Love of God... He isn't quite prepared but was very grateful for the lesson and is going to consider the thought of their being a God.

Sister Kolodisi and I are working to get a lot of things started in our wards. There are so many potentials it is just waiting until things fall into place according to the timeline of our Heavenly Father.
My "ponderizing" scripture for this week is 3 Nephi 18:32
"Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out of your synagogues, or your places of worship, for unto such shall ye continue to minister; for ye know not but what they will return and repent, and come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I shall heal them; and ye shall be the means of bringing salvation unto them."
I know that the Lord loves all of His children. He knows all of us and wants us to turn to him in all of the aspects of our lives. I love you all and hope that you have a great week!

P.S - Sister Kolodisi and I had some extra time during lunch the other day so we took some pictures on a bridge in Mahogany area... they have this cool work out gear there in a park!

It's Thanksgiving Day in Canada

Hello Everyone! 
Happy Canadian THANKSGIVING! 

In case you are wondering... 
Canadian Thanksgiving is a little (but not much) different from American Thanksgiving. 
1. It is on a Monday...
2. Lots and lots of people celebrate it on Sunday as well as Monday. 
3. No black Friday here. 
4. Popular dish is Mashed Carrots and Parsnips. 
5. Brussel sprouts. 
6. Rolls are called Buns :)
Other than that Thanksgiving is Thanksgiving! 

We had a Turkey dinner yesterday and twice today! 

Anyway... this week the work has been super slow. We have not been able to meet with anyone, but we did have 4 Less-active lessons in a day. We are trying to meet with members and lots of potentials this week... we just haven't had any success do to sicknesses and the holiday weekend. I am very grateful for the work that I have been able to do and the mission that I have had. I am very grateful for the gospel and for all of your support. I learned this week that even though people might not listen to the gospel, as we live by the commandments, we are promised that we will be able to be teachers of those around us... even if all we can do is share our testimony with others we can be a light and share the spirit. I love you all!

Happy Early Canadian Thanksgiving

Hello All!!! Happy Early Canadian Thanksgiving and late Conference Week! 

I don't have a lot of writing time right now but I wanted to let you all know that things are going well in the Canada Calgary mission. 

We are being very blessed and although it can be stressful at times to work in two wards, we always have something that we can be doing. 

We had a ton of miracles here this week! 

This week we celebrated Sister Kolodisi's birthday with Pancakes and then on Friday we had a great day. It started off with meeting a new investigators Erin! She was just walking on the street and we contacted her and turns out she grew up with members, going to church and Sunday dinners!!! YAYAYA!!! We are going to be going back this week and hope that we can start teaching her the lessons! We also went to a Less-ACTIVES house who then said that she was going to watch conference. The spirit was so strong that both Sister Kolodisi left that place on a spiritual high with smiles and happy dances. I know that our Savior is there to help and guide us. We also has a cool miracle with a less-active that our Bishop told us to go see. We went and contacted her and she wasn't home, so we went a street over to contact another person only to realize that we still had another family to contact on the street we were just on. As we went back we prayed that we would be able to get a hold of them and talk to everyone we met. As we went to knock at the door, we realized that the first less-active that we had tried to contact was just coming out of her house to get more groceries and so we mustered up our courage and went and talked to her. She said that she wasn't interested but that she was going through a hard time so we gave her our number and left. We were pretty happy with that miracle, but later in the day she then texted us and told us that although she wasn't sure that she was interested, she missed having the spirit in her home and wanted to have us over for dinner!!! We then also saw her today when we were shopping at Walmart! so cool! 
Later that night we went and saw Hugo a less-active and his nonmember wife Maribella. We took Sister Vincent with us a ward missionary and actually got to talk to Maribella. They said that they would come to General Conference and then came to a session!! We are hoping that this week we can teach them a little bit more especially about temples and that we can help Maribella as well! 

General Conference was amazing! I really felt the spirit testifying to me and I am grateful for the chance that we had to experience three new apostles being sustained. I know that our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and that as part of His plan he sent his Son to Atone for us. I love you all and hope that you have a great week! !
