Praying with Santa and Hot Chocolate Floats

Hello friends and family!

Oh man! Today will be insane. Because I am leaving Wainwright!!!

Bahhhhhhhh! It's so crazy! So we have a lot to do!

 But I'll tell you about our week! Wednesday we had fun with Christmas! We helped decorate an entire old age home with some high school kids! Boy, that was a lot of Christmas! Then we did a bunch more things and even met with Devon, who we love! We met him in a cafe we really like, and
when we were just about to leave, Santa, who we also love, came and sat down! So I turned to him, because the three of us were in a rush, and said, "Well Santa, would you like to pray with us?" The look on Devon's face was priceless! But Santa said yes, so we just prayed with Santa in a cafe! Pretty sweet! Oh! We took pictures with him this week too!

Anyways, we've been doing lots of family history this week, and man, finding a name for someone else is so happy! I can't wait to find ancestors for myself back home! :)

On Thursday we saw a bunch of people and did some service and started our #LIGHTtheWORLD initiative and it's been a blast! Check out the videos and try out the challenge with me! Oooooo! There's a picture of my candles compared to Sister Jarman's. I had two nights of experience ;) Haha! We also got to eat the best bacon in the world that night! Yummm!

On Friday we got to go to the high school to help cook a seniors banquet there! That was fun too! Ohhhh! Saturday! Man! Stuff happened! We literally went to Saskatchewan... like to the very east of our mission! We took a road trip and stopped in every little town we could! The very first town we stopped in, the very first door was a lost sheep! A sweet lady answered and we are pretty positive her husband is a member of the church! So that's crazy!

Anyways, then we stopped in another town, then we were driving to Winter, because it seemed like such a sweet little town, and it turns out that there is no Winter! There is literally a gravestone for the town! It's crazy! Anyways, we then drove to Unity, the furthest part of our area and mission and contacted a ton! We went to this trailer park and the ice was soooo thick there! So we were walking to the last couple of trailers and I slipped and fell so hard and ridiculously! Man! It was awful! I wish you could see all my bruises! Anyways! Then we ate dinner at the border of Saskatchewan and Alberta and took pics and made a video, so enjoy!

On Sunday we got to meet Devon's family! They are so sweet and we love them so dang much! His twin brothers are turning 6 next week and want us to come over so bad! They're adorable! So that was a blast! Then we had a chocolate party with Santa and the Orr's! Have you ever tried a hot chocolate float? Try it! Especially if Santa makes it for you!

Yesterday we hung decorations at our favourite cafe! And ate yummy sausages and butternut squash for dinner, yum! It was an awesome week!

I have loved being a DL and I have loved Wainwright and have learned so much here! I am excited to move on to new things! :D

Love and miss you all! ❤️
