Sister Womack is so awesome!! I love her to death!! :D
She has been in small cities and towns her whole mission.. So coming here was different for her! But she has done so well! She is amazing at bus and subway contacting!! (even if she doesn’t think so) But it is fun working with her!! She is a red head and I love that! So does everyone else!! :) They want to touch her silky red hair! :) She is getting along really well with the ward and our investigators already!! :D
For Canada Day, we went and had lunch with a true Canadian!! A cute member named Kathy had us over and it was super fun!! :) We also had a lesson with another true Canadian! It was the less active we have been working with to have her coming back to church! Things are moving really well with her!! If she was an investigator she would be so golden!! She reads what we give her, she comes with questions, and commits herself to things!! We love her!! She will be back soon!! :D There were also fireworks late that night! We were able to watch them from our window!! O'
We did service for this wonderful charity "sleeping children around the world" It was fun!! The senior couple serving in our ward set it up for us and helped us with it! It was fun to be able to do service with them! ..And for them to give us a ride!! That helps bunches!! But we cleaned windows!! I feel like a pro now!! But then we found this huge hornet’s nest!! We ran to tell Elder Lau to make sure he didn’t do that one! It was scary business!!
Friday night we had family home evening with a bunch of Philippinos!! :D They are my favorite!! We read through the First Presidency letter they sent out to members in regards to the new Marriage Laws in the
USA and Canada. It is very good and helps
explain our view very well. If you haven’t read it yet, you have too!! You will
be questioned and this will help you answer them!!
Then after that…they did me a favor and made me BALUT so I could try it before I left!! (ps I love Sis Womack because she is brave and will eat ANYTHING) So BALUT is a unhatched baby duck.. :) Yummy! They boil it for about 30 minutes and then its ready to eat!! So you crack it open and drink the broth (soup they call it) which tastes like chicken broth, then you crack it open and just start biting into it! It basically tastes like a hard boiled egg.. just a little bit slimier. I was brave and ate it!! After we ate it they all welcomed us to the family!! :D It was fun! There were lots of recent converts at the family home evening and a non member that we were able to connect with. While we were eating dinner we had "Meet the Mormons" running in the back ground. All of them loved the movie!
Our investigator came to church again this week.. he has been really busy so we haven’t had the time to teach him, but he loves church!! He loves the members, and he set up a time to meet with the bishop by himself!! Can you say prepared?! All we need to do it teach him the lessons and warm up the water!! I am excited for this one. He will be a kingdom builder!! Pray that we will be able to start meeting with him regularly!!
Oh, and I got like the bestest presents from one of my bestest friends!! A sweet Blue Jays Jersey with my last name on it and a Pandora bracelet with an amazing Blue Jays Charm!! Made my week!! Thank you!! O’Canada…I love it!
