Happy Canada Day

So yup I celebrated Canada day yesterday and it was great!.....kind of.....I wish we could have watched fireworks but they started too late and we had to go to bed. But this week has been so good! My investigators Andy and Kenora are doing great!! I love teaching them, they're just soaking in the scriptures right now which makes me so happy. They should be getting married this Sunday and baptized on the 14th!! If everything continues to go well. They're so sweet and it makes me so happy to see them making this life changing decision that will bless them so much. I'm just picturing their sweet family getting sealed in a year and it fills me with joy. I'm hoping I can go to the temple with them in a year. As well as Byron and Corrina. I've just grown to love these people so much I can't even describe it! We had interviews this past week and it's always nice to meet with President and let him know how everything is going. He's such a great person and he gave me a lot of great advice on how to be a better missionary.

Everything is going really good right now. Obviously I have my down days where I get super frustrated with myself or with people we're teaching because they're not progressing but then I think of all the blessings in my life, here on the mission and back home. I'm so blessed. How did I get so lucky?? I'm so blessed to have such an amazing family.

So its been superrrrr hot lately and then I think back home its probably 20 degrees hotter! I'm just better in the cold hahaha today I woke up and said I want snow! Who says that?? Apparently me....thank goodness there's snow here for 9 months of the year.

I also had to go to a meeting this past week with all the trainers which was great! Because sisters that came out with me are training and I LOVE them. Seriously I feel like I've known them for years even though we only spent 12 days together in the MTC. It just boosted me right up to see them all.

Me and Sister B. are doing great. We seriously have SO much fun together. I'm so grateful she puts up with all my strange quirks BUT she almost gave me a heart attack the other night. I woke up at and looked at the time and it was 1:45 in the morning and the fan in our room was going so it was super loud and dark but I looked out into our living room and saw someone walking around and I literally thought someone had broken into our apartment! I had never been so scared! I went to go wake up Sister B but she wasn't in bed so then I realized it was her! hahaha we were laughing for a little while and didn't get a good nights sleep....oh well. Thank goodness no one broke in though.

So on Sunday I sang "Oh Canada" loud and proud it was actually really fun. I love Canada. And then since Canada Day was on P-day we just did our normal things of grocery shopping, cleaning the apartment...etc...etc. But we did go to the church and play dodge ball with the Elders....which I'm AWFUL at. but it was fun and then I was walking out of the church and the Elders threw a huge bucket of water at me.....which turned into a huge water fight and it was really fun. and then some members invited us over for a bbq. I'm going to miss our 4th of July fun with the neighbors back home though. Tell everyone hi for me!!

I'm doing really bad at this email thing lately. People need to ask me more questions and then I'll have more to say......but I will say this. MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP AND I WANT BIRTHDAY LETTERS. ok I think I said that clear enough. thank you. thank you. I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
