10/5/15 Group Email

Ah this week was so good! We fasted lasted Sunday and I chose to fast to have one of our Investigators choose a date for baptism... WELL we had a lesson with our Investigator, Leila from Bolivia, and she wants to be baptized! Yaaay! It was really, really amazing when she agreed to the 31 de Octubre and we couldn't be more excited for her. It was so cool!! AND, on Monday we fasted for our less active family, the Morales, because they've been having trials. and holy, after we fasted, everything in their lives started to turn around for the better! It was sooo amazing. I have such an incredibly strong testimony of fast and prayer.  So super amazing to see these fasting miracles happen this past week!  We were at the food bank on Miercoles and I helped this old man load up his cart. I had been chatting with him for a bit, getting to know him. And then as he went to leave, he said "one last thing", came right up into my face, our noses were almost touching!, and he grazed down the side of my face and said "can I have your autograph?" and walked away. AH I felt so violated!!! But it was kinda funny (after the fact) and gave my companion and I a good laugh!  On Friday we went downtown for a Zone finding.. I love the city of Calgary. It's so beautiful, I'm so lucky to be here. We talked to tons of people, and even though they don't always want to hear, the seed has been planted! Conference was incredible, as pretty much every missionary says. It was really such a good spiritual rejuvination and I loved all the messages that were shared.  So lucky to be apart of this gospel, which teaches that happiest and most comforting teachings!  I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week! The work is going so good up here in Canada, Calgary and I absolutely have fallen in love with this culture and these Hispanic people. They are so sweet and I'm so blessed to have this amazing opportunity!
