Week 35: Eternal Perspective

Question time:

1. Update on investigators and reactivation efforts.
    Marcela-- She is soo excited to receive the Holy ghost this week!
    Janelle-- We did not get to meet with her this week, because she has to go to a funeral in Alberta.
    Nick-- is awesome! But we have not been able to meet with him this week yet either! 
    Sister Bertoia-- She is absolutely amazing! She married a non-member and has two kids! She is amazing! She realized that she wants to come to church more and she wants to be sealed in the temple with her family forever! She is so cute!

2. Favorite scripture of the week.
     Matthew 11:28-30
         28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give  you rest.
             29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
          30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
3.  Funniest moment of the week?
     So all day my District leader and us were talking in Scriptures! Oh man it was awesome! and soo funny! 
for example: Elders--Hebrews 14:16-17
                   Us--  psalms 56:11

4.  What did you like the most from your zone conference?  Favorite
talk or topic?
     Oh man! It was amazing! It was all focused on Prayer, the Godhead, and the Atonement! 
     All of us literally had to re-evaluate our prayers! It was amazing! and We learned so much and definitely had a super spiritual experience.
     My Favorite of Every Zone Conference is Departing missionaries with in the next 3 months give a farewell testimony! Man the spirit is always soo strong and you learn so much! It is soo good!

Zone Conference with Brampton, Ossington and North York

5. What is a typical day in Brampton like for a missionary.   What do you do?  What is your favorite thing about Brampton?
    So Brampton is in our area but not our assigned area, which is Woodbridge and Bolton! So the typical day is studies, then finding usually OYMing or Tracting. then 1 or 2 lessons in the evening and then we go home and plan for the next day! Favorite thing about the area is the Members and the open roads and lots of trees!

6. Best Companion moment of the week?
    Well I Talked to this family playing hockey on the street! And I was trying to get them to talk more about hockey and I even asked if they could teach me! The dad just laughed and said we don't play we just do this for fun! After the Conversation Sister Barton just looked at me and laughed and said Really???
Ahhh! I tried! 

7.  Something you learned about yourself that surprised you..
     That My Testimony is stronger than I ever could have imagined, that I still have room to grow and that I can and have changed!

8.  Strongest testimony-strengthening experience of the week.
     Seeing Prayers answered as I was specific in what I needed! I know that he is there and that through sincere and direct prayer, when you are doing what is right... He WILL answer you according to HIS timetable! 

9.  My favorite part of the day is when...
     I look back at the end of the day and see the seeds planted.
     So a while ago in Don Valley with Sister Lundin, we were being pounded with people who we found were SUPER hard to love. We told Elder Gunnell this and he challenged us everyday to find one person who was hard to love and write 3 good things about why God loves them. I still try to do this and I have found more reasons that God loves people than I ever thought! I found that as we find why God loves people we end up finding love for them too!

10.  Share you testimony of the plan of salvation especially around
how families can be together forever.
       When I was 6, we had the opportunity to adopt Riley, Ryan, and Braxton! We then had an opportunity to be sealed together in the temple for all of time and eternity! I still remember being all together as a family, looking into a mirror that went on into eternity. I still think back at that picture that is etched into my brain. I have known that families are suppose to be not just for time but for eternity since I was a little kid! Now I find that I look back on these memories often, thinking that No matter what happens I will see my family again and I will be able to spend a happy eternity with them! I know that the Plan of Salvation is sooo true! I know that God loves us and wants us to be happy! He also knows that we have to sometimes go through the bitterest of times to truly accept the sweetest ones! 

I love you all! Don't you ever forget it!
