You are not alone

"You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you...He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you, because you are His Him earnestly, and you will find Him" -Pres Uchtdorf

This Week has been crazy. We have done a ton of stuff except for Tuesday because it seemed like on Tuesday nothing went right. We had seven lessons planned and none of them worked out so Tuesday seemed to be a trial of our faith because it was rough. Then on Wednesday it got better and things started to work out. The best day of the week by far was Saturday. 
 On Saturday we had something called Social Media Splits day where all day we had a member with us taking pictures of us and posting them with the hash tag #realBCmissionaries. You have no idea how hard if was for me to do that. 
Social Media Saturday - ironically enough the member that was taking pictures of them is the nephew of the Bishop he served under in the Kamloops 2nd Ward (his wife sent me this picture)
Anyway we had a really good service project in the morning where we dug a ditch and put down some pipe and we got to feed some chickens and hold a baby goat and pet some other chickens and pet a turkey so you could say it was a pretty successful day but then it got even better because we pretty much had appointments all day and when one fell through our back up worked out. It was great! The coolest thing was we taught a family that me and Elder Moran found a few weeks ago while we were waiting for our new companions. So we went back and talked to them and taught them about the restoration and answered a lot of the questions they had about Mormons. What’s even cooler is they have five kids and they are Jamaican! Isn't that Sweet! Like a Jamaican family in BC. So it was a really great day and the member we took to that appointment really connected with them well so it was an amazing lesson. 

 This transfer has been really great and Elder Boehmer and I have been doing awesome even though he is Canadian and I’m American we still get along.

 Sorry I didn’t manage my time very well to day so I am going to have to cut it short so sorry!

Love Elder Slack
