Thinking Outside the Box!

Another great week here in Vancouver! Nine months has literally just flown by so fast. We just keep on going and pray for miracles everyday. We weren't able to meet with a lot of our regular people this week so it was a little tough but we will keep on going. We do have a lead with a part member family so hopefully we will be able to stay in contact with them all. And Greg couldn't meet so we are hopefully seeing him this week. A miracle this week is we decided to start a scripture study class for anyone and everyone. And a lot of people in the Ward are super excited and we may have people coming!! Woot!! Gotta think outside the box here in Vancouver haha. But it will be good. 

We also moved on Saturday! We still live with members but are with Sister Morford now. We are staying in her basement and it's pretty awesome. Thankfully the Ward has taken a lot of pity on us and drive us places so we can stay out of the rain. Which is always appreciated. So we are staying somewhat dry. 

Another tender mercy this week are people in my zone! Sister Nilson is also 22 so we can gang together. She's pretty chill and we laugh a lot. So that's cool. Sister Turner and I are doing better...we had a very interesting experience this week though. Things were just getting so bad and we had a meeting with the stls and the zls and it was pretty awful. They just made us talk it out....and we were both so uncomfortable. But it was needed. Now it's just super awkward around them....anyway that's like the only thing this week that's different than the usual knockin and walkin. 

Thankfully we picked up another couple who are less active and she is trying really hard to come back to church so we are going to start meeting with them regularly. It seems like we do a lot better when we focus on less actives to teach in this area and we are doing pretty well with that. We did teach a family home evening with our Ward mission leaders family and it went pretty good. We had a part member family there and we were able to talk about the atonement. That's always my favorite topic. And we played games with them so we appreciated that. 

For thanksgiving we are going to be going to a lot of different members homes and then we are going to presidents house for pie. So we are pretty pumped for that. We have a lot of awesome people in our Ward here. So that helps a lot.

Anyways....that's all for me. Love you guys!
