Fried Dumplings and Alyssa's Old Companion

The week started off pretty good.
This week my Awesome sister sent me the information of her companion that she served with in Lisbon, Portugal.  She now lives here in Ontario and weirdly enough in the city that we have just recently started working in! It seems as though the Lord is really throwing us a bone as we expand Farsi work out to Kitchener/Waterloo. After one visit there we have 2 investigators, 3 potentials, and a Member that lives there that we are in contact with. AWESOME! This blessing has made the work in Kitchener that much more effective and now we have more reason to go more frequently.

Later on in the week I went on exchange with an Elder named Elder Davis. All was well when we first got together but after our usual morning scripture/language study things got a little out of control. We decided to make dumplings for lunch so we boiled some and they tasted weird so we decided to put a pot of oil on the stove and fry them! We left the oil on the stove for a little too much time so when we put the first dumpling in it exploded and molten oil went everywhere (no one was hurt). We started to freak out because it was shooting oil everywhere so we couldn't reach over and turn off the stove..... so with all the adrenaline that was pumping through my body I put on an oven mit and just picked up the put and ran it out onto the balcony. Surprisingly, I only got burnt once. Now that the oil was outside we decided to try cooking the dumplings out there, and it worked! We then made like 20 dumplings out on the balcony. It was awesome.

On sunday we had a FANTASTIC fast and testimony meeting. Super spiritual and overwhelming. To top it off Elder Jansons dying testimony to the ward got us 18 appointments for this week. What a blessing. We are going to be running from member to member all week to get pictures for Elder Janson before he goes home.

The Church just came out with their Christmas Initiative #LightTheWorld. I invite you all to go check it out on Mormon.org.  There are different challenges everyday that give us ideas on how we can serve. Its Awesome!

love you all!
