I am dressed as a civilian today. But still with a nametag :)
This week was great. Sisters up in Quebec came down to split us. They spent two nights here, it was lots of fun. I don't know either of them very well, but we really did have a good time. I met lots of people from lots of different countries and lots of different religious backgrounds this week--my count on the number of countries I've come in contact with here is nearing fifty. That's in only six months--I have a whole year to find the rest of the world! I know they're here somewhere...I had a really challenging lesson with a really nice Muslim man who tried very, very hard to explain to me that I will be going to hell if I don't accept the qu'aran (sp?) and if I keep calling God my father. Sigh. I am learning to love Montreal, and am keeping an optomistic view on things--time is short!! When I think about everything I have learned in the last six months, and how much I still want and need to learn, another year doesn't seem like quite enough. Yeesh, time is SO strange. I narrowly escaped donating blood this week, too. That is a fear I know I need to conquer, but not right now. That can wait. There were lots of chance meetings with awesome people this week--good reminders of whose work this really is. I met a less active member on the metro, contacting on a day that I really, really did not want to contact. That was an important lesson--work, and Heavenly Father WILL provide. We can't afford not to work. The people here can't afford for us not to work. Anyway, getting along well here in Montreal. I love you all, and miss you muchly. When I don't want to work, or don't think I have it in me, I think of you and get to work. I love you. Thanks for being you. Sorry my letters are short these days--its very different writing in an internet cafe than in the church family history center. sigh. Anyway, keep safe! Happy Halloween!
