Edmonton, Edmonton, WhiteCourt

So this past week we had the opportunity to go into the Edmonton City 2 times and we will be going in tomorrow as well for a total of 3 times. The first time was for our interview with the President, the second time was for the Trainer follow up meeting for new missionaries, and tomorrow will be for mission tour where we will have Elder Martino speak. WhiteCourt (the forest capitol of Canada) is about an hour 40 minute drive from Edmonton.

What is cool is eating food that is banned in the United States like Kinder Eggs. However things like Mountain Dew is less popular up here. and they seem to have more brands of Ice Cream up here as well.

So this past Friday I had this cool experience where we were driving around visiting with less active members and I got this prompting to visit one of our investigators, so we went to her apartment  and she wasn't there but her daughter was there and we were told she was at one of her sons apartments who happened to live in our same apartment building, so we were able to visit with her and get back in contact with her because she had broke her phone a few weeks before and I just thought it was cool to have received a prompting like that.

I am also reading in the Book of Mormon right now and I just thought it is amazing just how often there are things referring to these latter times in there, I think I can even point out something in every chapter. It is also amazing to see how simple and yet how hard our job is being members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, We are only asked to invite everyone to come unto Christ, and use his atonement, by repenting, baptizing, using the Holy Ghost, and continuing that to the very end.

I know that we all have the ability to follow Jesus Christ and we have the ability to make it to the Celestial Kingdom, and I would be very sad if I couldn't be with anyone of you because you chose to not follow the teachings you have been taught, and if you need to know it what you have been taught is true, pray about it.

I appreciate all the emails and support you all are giving me. Have a good week.

Elder Warkentin
