April 22

Hey everyone!
We had a really awesome week this week with a couple cool miracles. On Tuesday we didn't have any lessons planned for the afternoon so we decided to go tracting, even though afternoons aren't always the best time to knock. We knocked a building of eight apartments and no one was home in the whole building. We stepped outside and started discussing what we could do instead to be more effective with our time. We were about fresh out of ideas when suddenly a guy walked approached us and in English asked if we were from Utah haha. I told him I was, but Elder Leon was from California. He said "Well I'm not Mormon, but I like Mormons, could you guys come by sometime?" Turns out he used to live in Western Canada so he speaks good English and teaches at one of the few English schools here in Quebec. He's really into camping so he's been through Utah a lot to visit the national parks and stuff, so he's met a lot of members in his travels. He knows a lot about the church and is very open to learning more, so that was one of our cool stories from this week. The next one was Mireille. Last Monday we were just wrapping up our p-day at the institute center when a lady walked in the front door and started asking us what we were all about. We gave her a tour of the chapel which she really enjoyed and we set up an appointment with her for the next day so we could teach her more. The next day we taught her with the St. Onges, the senior couple here, and it went really well. She was very open to our message and seemed very excited about the Book of Mormon and the pamphlets we gave her. We invited her to come to church on Sunday. She showed up early and stayed nearly for all three hours. She's planning on coming to English class this week as well so we have high hopes for her.
The missionary work is going well here and the weather has been more bearable although the wind is still pretty chilly usually. Today we're going to check out a waterfall so I'll include those pictures in next weeks e-mail. Love you all and hope you're doing well!
