June 29, 2015 How are you all?

Dear family and friends,

This week was wonderful. We did 2 exchanges and went to a bunch of district meetings. The zone invited 1064 people to church on the streets. it was great.

One of the exchanges something miraculous happened. We were doing some contacting and like usual many people didn't want to meet with us to learn about the gospel...That's all-right hopefully they'll be interested someday. So then my exchange companion Elder Gleave and I started going to a former investigators home where we felt inspired to go to. 

That led us to the right direction.

Meanwhile a lady was walking on another street. She is struggling a bit in life and she remembered how she had met missionaries in Calgary and in Paris and how they helped her gain spiritual strength. She turned the corner and looked... There we are, walking towards her. We sat down and taught her a lesson. "Do you know what that means?" "No." "It means God knows you." She definitely felt the Spirit that day. 

I also would like you to know that that was just one of the many many miracles that happened here. You know what that means? It means God knows me, too!

June 22, 2015 JK... Kitchener!!!‏

Dear family and friends,

I got transferred... So hold on to your packages and send it to the office...

Kitchener YSA is my new last area. President called on Wednesday morning to transfer me. My companion is Elder Forsyth and we are the zone leaders here. Elder Forsyth is a great missionary, I remember being his district leader when he was only 3 transfers old. I'm still more than twice as old as he is but he is definitely helping me to know how to be a good zone leader. 

This week has been a change because we are now doing English work. I never thought I would start in English work and I never thought I would end in English work either. Well here I am. 

We are working to build up this area more. YSA people are not so good with keeping commitments sometimes. It is so good to see the members! Especially the Chinese members here because they helped us out when I was here with my son Elder Kendell. 

We have seen tons of miracles already and we are finding amazing new people fro our area and the zone! 

Well, I'm pretty excited for the rest of the transfer.

June 15, 2015 My Death Bed!! London Chinese

Dear family and friends,

I am staying here in London and this will be my last area. I am so glad that I am staying because we are gonna have a baptism. Simon is planning to be baptized on June 28th. Please pray for him to be protected from temptations. 

We have had a really good week with more lessons than any other week we have taught this transfer. We found a family and the mom and the daughter came to church. 

So Elder Blanscett is staying this transfer but there is news! Elder Lau from TaiPo Hong Kong. He is going to be the third elder in the area. So the only bad thing is that we need to find another bike. Anyway, we are so excited to get Elder Lau tonight.

So I am going to work my hardest! This transfer will be the best.

Dear family and friends,

This week was wonderful! Cool things happened. I have learned how it is important to pay attention to the details of life because often times that is what makes the difference the most effectively. 

We taught Simon this week. He is a student of Western and he liked studying the Bible. We taught him about the Law of Chastity and he decided to live it. 

This week the YSA sisters had two people come to sacrament that made it very special to me. We found Anthony after dropping by a member. He expressed that he is going through the grief of losing love ones and he is grateful that God found him through missionaries. We found David after eating at a members restaurant. He works for that member and he was taking a smoke break afterwards. I just gave an instruction that day to talk with everyone so that gave me extra motivation to talk with him. He came to church too. 

Well even though we don't get to teach them, I am glad that I talked with EVERYONE. I know that the gospel is for all of us.

Dear family and friends,
This week was really good!
Something really cool that happened this week was that we were on the bus an we found a student that went to school in London England. He was baptized there in 2012 and came here to study and lost contact with the church.
I know that Heavenly Father helped us find him. 

I wonder how many of these people are around us! He is about the sixth person that I have found that has lost contact with the church.
We had stake conference and there was a big focus on keeping the sabbath day holy from the prophets and apostles recently. It was great to hear from our leaders including a seventy, Elder Richards.
So that's the week!
