rain rain rain.

I think I jinxed it last week by talking about flooding! Ooooops.....Cardston got some flooding but not bad. We were worried because we live in a basement but it was all good :) Now the weather is good again and we're just waiting for Waterton to clear up a little bit more so we can go again! So me and Sister Estrada went into Lethbridge on Wednesday for transfers it was good to see everyone. I don't remember if I told you but they combined the Fort Macleod zone with the Cardston zone so now our zone is HUGE. It covers from Cardston to Raymond to Crowsnest Pass by the border of BC up to Vulcan. None of those areas had sisters in it so we're not covering anymore sisters which is good. We're keeping so busy right now! I love it. That night we helped in the other stake with a missionary night. They had all these different booths up about missionary work and we got to help out with it. Its fun to see how all the members are getting excited about hastening the work. There are a lot of good things happening in Cardston right now.

On Thursday we did some weekly planning and then had a lesson with our investigator who is getting prepared for her baptism. The lesson went really well, she's super in tune with the spirit and hardly ever brings up concerns. Then we went over to our other investigator who's not been progressing as fast. Before her lesson we were trying to decide if we would drop her as an investigator and let her have some time but when we got to her house we both got a strong feeling that we need to keep teaching her. She has some family pressure which is really hard but when we asked her what it would do for her to find out that the Book of Mormon was true, she said it would bless her life. She knows its a good thing and really wants to know for herself, she just hasn't received her answer yet. Her husband is less-active and wants to make some changes as well. Hopefully as we help them they will be able to help each other. At the end of the night we had another lesson with our other investigator who has grown up in Cardston her whole life and even went to seminary. She wants us to teach her all the lessons and she said that she would pray about getting baptized as well! Soooooo coooool. LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY. Her son also sat in all the lesson and said he wants to learn more so we got a new investigator who is 10. So cute! I haven't taught a lot of children on my mission....hardly any actually but its super fun to explain things to them.

On Friday we tried to meet with some YSA members but most of them were working, we've gotten really good at being super creepy and finding out where all of them work so we can just show up and find them hahahaha but really sometimes we're a little weird.
We had some good lessons with some less-active members and we're seeing some progression in them as well, which is super exciting to see. There is one YSA girl who came to us and told us that she wants to gain a testimony of the gospel because she doesn't really have one. I was super impressed with how open and humble she was to ask us for help. Its so much easier when they have a desire to change.

On Saturday it was finally nice weather!! We were finally able to walk around and see the sun :)  we worked at the Visitor Center in the afternoon and then stopped by and saw some of our investigators. Honestly things are so good right now. Obviously we still have some really really bad days and I still have lots of disappointments but I've really tried to apply having an attitude of gratitude in every circumstance. There are too many good things in life to be upset. Plus time is flying way tooooo fast. I have to enjoy things :)

Well I don't have much else to say. I love you all and hope you're doing good :)
