An American in Canada;)

Hola fam!
I hope you had a good week and are enjoying the 4th of July! Hermana Ratliff and I are very much representing the United States today! Hahaha sometimes I like being an American! This week was SO busy! Where do I begin.....well we did two zone meeting trainings so that was fun! We had to take the bus all week because we were out of our Kilometers for the we were walking and running to appointments in the rain. Hahaha we had to take the train and the bus too and some of our travel times was like 2 hours. We were traveling down town this week and get on the train and all of the sudden the train stops because it had hit a pedestrian!!! Let me tell you something about Canada there is no jay walking! Canadians walk where ever they want! They are allowed to, it drives me nuts! They little will just walk out in the middle of the street and expect you to stop for them! Even if you are going 60 Kilometers per's crazy! hahaha but it's good it was an adventure. We also walked around the entire east of Calgary to head to an appointment. Hahaha it took a solid 2 hours to get there....hahaha but we contacted a ton of people and two of them were Spanish. We actually had the coolest thing happen this morning. We have been trying to find investigators for everyone so if we find someone Chinese we try to hand signal and call the Mandarin Elders and have them contact them through the phone. So the English sisters did that this morning and we have a potential lesson set up! This family just came from Venezuela 10 days ago and the English sisters contacted them pulled out the phone when they realized they only spoke Spanish and we set up a lesson. Isn't that SO cool! Our zone is really good at working together! We are all working hard to find new people! One of our Members moved back to Vancouver this week and she came by before she left and gave us a whole freezer full of meat. Hahaha it was awesome! So we have been having Pancakes and bacon for breakfast every morning since. We are still working with our investigators and praying to pick up news ones as well! The Lord is amazing!!! Well love you familia! Have a great 4th of July!!!
