It has been a crazy tough week. But we survived and still saw miracles!!!
This week started off with a huge Zone Conference! It was all about teaching skills and helping people make and keep commitments. Also, how to plan each week and look after our area books. I love Zone Conferences. This is when I have had some of my favorite missionary experiences. It’s an opportunity to learn and feel the Spirit and be prompted how you can improve..and wow was it a call to repentance!! That’s a positive thing though, it means I know how I can improve myself. And there’s ALWAYS so many ways I can improve!!
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but our mission is going to be like all the other missions… they are doing away with sister districts and sister district leaders. It’s a weird transition but it’s actually been super awesome and our current district leader is a champ. The reason they are doing this is because there just aren’t enough sisters going out on missions!! Get out there, girls!!!!!
On Saturday after some early morning drama we were able to travel 2 hours north to a town called Mackenzie (yes still our ward area). There we contacted and visited a person who was referred to us as well as less active church members there. It was a miracle, faith building day. Many of the people there had never met missionaries before!! Our awesome senior missionary couple the Deckwa’s, who are from California, drove us up and we spent the day with them. I took that really artsy looking pic of the sunset.
Beautiful lakes near MacKenzie
Lots of forestry.
But anyway, it’s a new week this week!! We will redouble our efforts and keep increasing our faith…next Monday is transfer calls!!!!
Love Sister McKee
