November 4 – Hablar espanol por favor!

So many things to tell you about! Let me get started!

 
First off, C. She is wonderful! I can’t remember if I told you about her before but she was a friend of S. We asked him if he knew someone who would be interested and two lessons  later he brought her along! Now she’s our investigator- and she is awesome!
 
She is originally from Ontario but moved to Montreal within the past few years. She is in her 30’s and going to school right now. She grew up Catholic but is searching to be closer to God and have more peace in her life. Good news: she came to the right place! We had an awesome lesson with her this past week and invited her to a baptism this weekend. She came and enjoyed herself and then came to church the next day! She really liked church and stayed for all three hours and then another 30 or more minutes talking to J (her fellowshipper). When we asked her how she liked church she said she didn’t understand some parts (about the plan of salvation) but said “I think that will come with time”. She’s pretty cool! We are excited to continue working with her!
Last Saturday a lady from the Philippines was baptized and it was her birthday so she celebrated by cooking a WHOLE pig!

We also went to a less active sister in our ward with our Relief Society President. The lady is Sister L, born in Mexico but lived in Montreal for most of her life. She has 3 kids- two girls and one boy. The two girls were there (7 and 10). They were so cute and fun! I just love them. And the best part is I think they like us too! We had a really good lesson and Sister L opened up to us about why she wasn’t coming to church. We invited her to retake the missionary lessons with her family and she was kind of hesitant at first saying that her kids had taken them 2 times already before they were baptized. But the girls were so excited and really wanted it. So she was like “well, since the girls are so excited I guess we better have you come”. That was exciting!
 
One last cool thing. Yesterday we went to a members home, the R family. They are awesome! The husband is less active right now but they accepted to take the missionary lessons. We had some awesome Dominican Republic food and I used a lot of my Spanish so that was lots of fun. Afterwards, Sister R (crazy awesome member missionary) went with us to knock on her neighbours door who spoke Spanish- we ended up having a lesson there (all in Spanish!) and then sister R wanted to try this other door- the lady opened up and let us come in- and she spoke Spanish! We had practically 3 Spanish lessons yesterday. I loved it! Muchas esponal!
Happy Halloween!

Something you said about seeing the windows of heaven in our eyes. it’s so true Mom. This one lady phoned us earlier today saying that she had met us in the metros when we talked to her. We gave her a pass along card and said if she ever knew of anyone or herself that needed help to call us. She was struck by our kindess and said that she saw our “purity and innocence- something in our faces” and she kept thinking of us. it was really cool. You never know what influence you will have upon people- in what we do or say just everyday. It’s kind of cool.
 
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! Seriously, thank you for everything you do! I am super happy to hear from you. You are amazing missionaries- keep it up! I know Heavenly Father is there for us and through the grace of Jesus Christ our weaknesses are made up. I love you! Have a WONDERFULLY AMAZING week!
 
Con amour,
Sister Godfrey
