Hey everyone! Hope all is well for you. I just got transferred this week. I was in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and now I am in Regina, Saskatchewan. I miss Saskatoon a lot but I am happy to be here, the temple is here! And it is close to Moose Jaw, one of my previous areas, so I may get to see people from there! Yay :) I was sad to leave Sister Alder, but I am now in a tripan with Sister Kearl and Sister Lau. Sister Kearl and I are Sister Training Leaders and Sister Lau is with us until her companion gets here. She is in the Philippines and waiting for a VISA to get here. So not sure how long it will be, but we will see I guess. Never a dull moment in mission life. I have been out for almost 15 months left and have 3 transfers to go, so I am just trying to love the work and keep going strong. I love you all, thank you for your love and support. Hope you all have a great week!

On our way to watch General Conference and enjoying the sunshine and the warmer weather :)

We cleaned a hoarders house this week...... yuck.... this is the before pic

and after :)

after day one of cleaning the hoarder house and not knowing what we were getting into, the next day we came prepared

Went street contacting on the Broadway Bridge after conference on Saturday. It was SO WARM, like 20! And suuuuuper windy.

we made milkshakes and watched Ephraim's Rescue last night :) 

Hahaha this is Bella :) She is the daughter of one of our investigators, Christine. She is a cutie, but usually a diva and never seems to like us haha she wont high five us or sit by us or let us touch her toys haha BUT she just came and sat right down in between us! So we took advantage of the moment and got lots of pics. 

Waiting in line at the car wash haha there is ALWAYS a HUGE line. Today wasn't the worst it's been though so that's good.
