Canada Calgary Mission. We were able to travel through our whole mission and meet all of our missionaries. We left on Monday and drove to British Columbia, which is about a 4 1/2 hour drive from Calgary. We went through the absolutely beautiful Crowsnest Pass.
We got to the little town of Jaffray where we met with the sister missionaries there, Sister Moulton and Sister Wallock. We were able to go with them on a teaching appointment and we were so impressed with everything they did. They truly loved the people they were working with and there was a good spirit there.
They are so enthusiastic about the work and we loved being with them.
Getting to meet all of our missionaries and look
into their eyes has been so great. We can see
how much they love the Lord and their great desire to serve.

We know if they become 'steadfast and immovable' and feel the power of the atonement in their lives their missionary work will become joyful and easy for them.
We pray for them every day, especially as they face their personal challenges...and each one is so different. But they all have a great desire to serve and are trying and we are so proud of them.
This past week we were also able to meet with 6 Stake Presidents and their wives in the Calgary area.
They were the nicest, most down to earth people, and we felt like we were among good friends.
We are anxious to help them with the missionary work in their stakes, and they are anxious to work with us. One of the greatest blessings of serving in the church are the wonderful friends and people you are able to meet and grow close to.
This mission is a true blessing!!
