This has been an interesting week. There was a huge thunderstormnight, and of course we got caught in it. We were teaching one of our investigators outside when it happened. We were at a spiritual high point in the lesson too. The wind was blowing, the rain was falling. We were drenched from head to toe. Just as we thought it was done, part two came with vengeance. My new shoes got drenched. As we got closer to the apartment it got worse. As we look to our apartment, we see the other set of sisters on the balcony cheering for us. What a sight. As we entered our apartment we dripped everywhere. It was fun.
We started to explore parts of our area that we have not worked in before. We explored an area called Shawinigan. It is a town 35 mins north from Trois Rivières. The area has so much potential. A lot of people we spoke to were curious about our church because they had never heard of it. The field is definitely white and ready to harvest there. If it was not too time consuming to travel up there and back, we would go there more often. But at the moment, we are just preparing the area for when a set of missionaries get sent up there.

Last week we were in Quebec to meet the new mission president and his family. He has 8 children. 5 of them are living with him now. They are really nice.
As we taught our investigators last week, some of them revealed to us that they are starting to get testimonies of the Book of Mormon. The wife of a couple we are teaching said that when she and her husband prayed about the Book of Mormon, it was like a light filled their body. They said that after that strong spiritual witness, they know the book of Mormon is true. They are now working towards the end of next month to get baptized.
Also, one of our investigators has quit smoking now for 14 days. He is really happy as he works towardsto be baptized.
Missionary work in Trois Rivières is great!
