Hello Everyone!
Another busy week. Tuesday we had Zone Training which was amazing! Afterwards we went with four other sisters and sang carols on the streets of Montreal. We sang Christmas songs and did some street contacting, giving out some Book of Mormons and the new "HE is the Gift" pass along cards. It went really well and we were able to talk to a lot of people and gave out many cards and Book of Mormons. The "HE is the gift" video put out by the church is simply amazing, and if you haven't watched it I would highly recommend watching it. It can be found  at christmas.mormon.org . We've been sharing it with everyone. It talks about putting the true meaning of the holiday, Christ back into the holiday and remembering that HE is truly the gift of Christmas. The members here have been great and have taken many cards to give to their family, friends and acquaintances along with sharing it on social media.

But out of the whole week, Saturday had to be the best day of the week. You know the saying it's always darkest before the sun comes up, well that sums up this week in a nutshell. We had some really hard days where people were just really rude, but when Saturday came everything was perfect.

We attended a baptism in Hawksburry, which is about an hour away, with Charlie and Sister Gaudet. It was the sweetest day that was filled with such a sweet spirit. The spirit was very strong. At times I thought there couldn't be a dry eye in the room. When we asked Charlie how he felt, he told us that he's " Got to get it done" :) He's such a great example to me and to us all. He's now been smoke free for 5 days!!!
He's an amazing example of willpower and seeing the path of the gospel and following it.

Than another miracles happened. We saw two  of our investigators who surprised us and showed up! We were so excited we were on cloud 12. It was such a indescribable happiness, and I just feet such a love for the people that we were teaching with deep desire to help them into the Kingdom of God. It was an amazing week!
