Crazy, busy week! We had transfer calls and they went a little like this...
 Elders: Sister Mildrum your staying in Laval and Sister Rawlings your staying in Laval.
 Us: Okay, thanks elders.
 Elders: Oh sisters that's not all...
 Us: What?
 Elders:You will be receiving another companion..
 So yep, I'm going to be in a Trio! With Sister Mildrum and Sister Cummings!
         To be honest,  we really didn't see that coming but we're really excited for what the Lord has planned for us. We have been really trying to find those people who are prepared by the Lord this week, as most of our investigators went missing in the past few weeks. We really have been praying for direction and the Lord truly provided us with some amazing miracles.
Contest-shucking corn!
        This was evident when we  had a lesson with a recent convert and she ended up not being at home but we kept talking to the people who were in her apartment and when we introduced ourselves-one of the ladies in the apartment was like, "come in, come in, I need to talk to you." It was a huge miracle because this woman told us that she has been studying different religions and she recognizes that something is always missing, but that she really wants to learn more about our region. It was a huge miracle that we had been praying for. Just proved to us that this really is the Lord's work and he will put people in our path that are ready.
      We also had a ward activity- Èpluchette ( which in French means Roast), which is a a barbecue but they buy lots and lots of corn. It was really fun and we were able to have a lot of  miracles with investigators, less actives and potentials all there.  
Only in Canada!
They call me the dog whisperer!
      We also had a huge miracle yesterday when one of our Recent Converts walked into Gospel Principles class with three of her daughters and two boyfriends who aren't members. Our amazing ward mission leader went off of his lesson and we talked about the Restoration, specifically Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, and were able to give four Book of Mormons out right there:)
      French is still a challenge for me. It can be very difficult not fully understanding people. But it's amazing to see the Lord blessing me with the Gift of Tongues in lessons. It's coming slowly and the the Lord has been really helping me:)
Love ya!  Have a great week!
