11 Months and July 4th


Rabbit by the entrance to our apartment

We made ground meat Kabob

hey fam
all is well here in the north.


Happy 4th!
This week we celebrated Canada day which is a huge hype here. They celebrate for like 3 days straight. Pretty nuts, and when anyone finds out we are American they just rip into us a bit hahah. super funny, when the people we meet on the street just take jabs at the states.

Anyways 2 pretty cool things happened this week!

First, we have been asked by our mission president to keep our prime proselyting time open (6pm-9pm) and if we have any meal appointments either try to reschedule them or make them, more effective by bringing an investigator. On Wednesday the Metcalf's wanted to feed us at 7pm so we told them about what President Shields asked us to do and they said that we could invite an investigator! We invited one, an ESL student who we recently started teaching and he accepted. We went over had a nice BBQ meal and talked about the Plan of Salvation and a bit about prophets! Super cool experience, Elder Dixon and I didn't say much during the actual lesson because Brother Metcalf was just bearing strong testimony. After the lesson our investigator expressed to us how important family is to him and that he really loves how important the family is to us.

The second cool experience is that we got a MEDIA REFERRAL holy cow this was amazing. I have only gotten like 4 media referrals my whole mission and out of those I've only met with 2. But this guy was awesome. He has been reading about the story of Joseph Smith online and requested us to come give him a Book of Mormon. He is a movie maker and was telling us that the Samuel the Lamanite picture looks like a scene on a set the he did for a film about Solomon. It was super cool. and now we are going back sometime this week! :)

Well I hope everyone has a good week!
