week 49

best news ever! Hermana Flake is back :) YAY! i love her. her companion is too sick to follow up train her, so president Clayton called us Monday night and told us switch. we are now in a trio together! her, me and Hermana Ridgway. its such a party! we all have so much fun together :) im excited to finish training her with Hermana Ridgway. it's been so great! we haven't even pillow talked at night though cause we have been coming home each night so exhausted haha. but i love this companionship! i am learning SO MUCH from being with both of them.

Canada celebrated Victoria Day yesterday which is why our Pday got switched. a day to celebrate the Queen! there were a lot of fireworks and all the stores were closed haha that's pretty much all the happened. #canadianholidays

we have seen some amazing miracles this week together! on Wednesday night we were about to go home for dinner hour and to do training, when we decided to stop at the home of our ESL investigator Susana. she was so happy to see us! she welcomed us in and gave us this yummy treat from Cuba; mango's and cheese. she is so happy! we taught her L1 the Restoration. and she loved it :) i felt the power of the Holy Ghost so strongly as i told her of the first vision. she was excited to see the Book of Mormon too, and told us she couldn't wait to read it. she accepted a baptismal date too! June 7 :) #ilovemiracles

Friday night was FULL of citas. back to back to back. it was great! haha we were so tired that night. Luz made us dinner :) she is so cute. i just love her. we also got to teach Yolanda! we found her about a month ago + her 2 children. they are a solid family. and the lesson was amazing! she also accepted a baptismal date for June 14! im really grateful for the member we brought with us, Hermana Beaton. because i know that's how we got in and taught her and i know having that friend really helped her see that this is what God wants for her. such an answer to my prayers of being able to teach Yolanda again :) i love feeling God's love He has for His children. and i love teaching them His Gospel!

we saw a cool miracle last night too. we went to drop by a less active and when we got to the town homes we realized we didn't have a unit number! we knew God placed us there for some reason so we tracted the area :) something our Mission President has told us to ALWAYS do. it works miracles! we found Ricardo, he's in his 20's from Colombia. he has lots of questions and was intrigued and interested in learning more. we taught him the Plan of Salvation for about 20 minutes and got a return appointment. i know God knows His children perfectly and placed us in Ricardo's path for a reason!

the work is so wonderful! i love Mississauga. i love the people here. i love the ward! we are so blessed to have the Gospel in our lives. i love the Book of Mormon... it's my favorite thing to share with people! i have been trying this week to better my Spanish as well. i never want to stop improving it... all for the benefit of the people too.

D&C 18:15-16

15: "And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!"

16: "And now, if your joy will be great with one soul that you have brought unto me into the kingdom of my Father, how great will be your joy if you should bring many souls unto me!"
