Hello everyone! Hope you weren’t too worried when I didn’t email yesterday.
Today we had the opportunity to go to the Vancouver Temple! That’s why P-day was moved to today. It was gorgeous, and it was really needed after the busy week. It’s nice, because the temple is actually in the Willoughby boundaries, so we are very blessed by that. We’ve talked to a lot of people not in the church that love seeing the temple.
One thing I didn’t mention last week is that I now have a British Columbia driver’s license, so I feel more Canadian than ever.
We’ve seen some really good miracles recently, especially from a Taiwanese couple named Violet and Stephen. They were referred to us by a member from Taiwan; we taught them on Friday, and we brought Allan, a young Chinese man who will be serving a mission in Nova Scotia in 2 weeks. He was able to teach them in Mandarin, which they really appreciated. Allan called us last night and told us that Violet said she wants to join the church, and we only met with her once! They are a wonderful couple and this is a miracle that we are really going to take care of. We meet with them again on Thursday.
I want to go shopping this week, so I’ll have to cut email short again, but you’ll certainly hear more from Canada next week!
