Hey Everyone!
       What an amazing, crazy, busy week! 
Us with Sisters Carpenter and Dexter
       We started off with training in zone training. It went really well. Right after that we headed on splits, and I went with Sister Dexter to Greenfield Park. It was super fun and a great learning experience. 
        This week was also the cultural celebration, followed by the Temple Dedication for the Montreal, Quebec Temple. We went to the first dedication at 9 am-it was beautiful. President Eyring re-dedicated the temple. As he was saying the dedicatory prayer I looked up to the screen and it just seemed like he was glowing with goodness. It was a very special feeling. Something that I loved that was said during the talks were how as we celebrate the re-dedication of the temple we should also re-dedicate ourselves to the covenants we  have made, with a strong desire to make the temple more a part of our lives. 
We also had an amazing miracle happen when Sister Schurch stopped to check the mail and we smiled at a woman and just started small talking to her and than we parted ways. The next morning we had went to the church to take out the garbage and we saw  the same woman on the sidewalk. As soon as we smiled at her she just poured out her soul to us, and she told us that we always seemed so happy and she wanted to know why. After explaining to her that as missionaries we teach people, she replied, " Ensena me" which is Spanish for " Teach me". It was such a miracle that God puts people exactly where they need to be. It was a very tender experience for us all. 
Sausage making at its finest!
       On another note, we made sausages with a family:)! Never something I thought I would learn how to do on my mission!  It was such a neat experience for us all:) 
 Love you all!
