Another fantastic week in the great Canada Calgary Mission! It's been a crazy week with figuring out our area some more, finding some great new investigators, and of course, seeing the Lord's servants speak to us in General Conference. It's been a bit of a roller coaster, but roller coasters are fun, so that's great! Oh, and of course, the weather has been brightening up nicely. Right now, it's a sweltering 16 degrees Celsius.(About 61 degrees Fahrenheit.) I never thought I would think of that as warm.
Anyway, the work is great, and I actually have some fantastic people to tell you about this week!
I'll start with Tethloch, since you already know a bit about him. We were very pleased to see Tethloch and his family at General Conference on Sunday afternoon, and were able to go over later to visit with them. They are such good and humble people, and they love God so purely and so abundantly, and it was great to be able to talk with them. We also learned some great news! I guess that Tethloch's father, who's name is James, talked with Tethloch's mother last week, and she said she would be willing to sign the permission form for Tethloch to be baptized under some really reasonable conditions. So, we were able to set a baptismal date for Tethloch for May 3rd! It should work out just fine, and I can't wait for him to be able to be baptized. He his such a great kid, and has s sincere desire to follow Christ already.
We also met Jodi for the first time this week. He and Leanne, a returning member of one of our wards, are in a pretty similar situation to Rick and Cindy. He's met with the missionaries before, and wants to baptize his and Leanne's daughter when she turns eight later this year. He has a divorce that needs to be finalized, which should happen soon, and a wedding that will need to happen as well, but we're hoping he'll be ready to be baptized soon! We talked to him a bit about setting a date to shoot for, and he came up with August 17th, so we'll hope for that day!
Well, wonderful friends and family, it's been a good week and a great weekend. I hope you all have the chance to study the General Conference talks again, because I'm sure our Father in Heaven has more to teach us from those inspired words. Thank you all so much for your impact in my life, and all you have taught me. Have a great week! Be good! Have fun!
I love you all so much!
