On Friday, August 10th, Sister and Elder Tiffany celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. It was very different from any we've had before. We were most thankful that none of our family had an emergency medical situation on that day (That's another story by itself). We visited an inactive member who is having some real challenges with some addictions she has. That was a sad situation, but we prayed with her and left her some challenges to accomplish, and a gospel message.
In the afternoon we visited with the Sister missionaries to discuss reactivation efforts among the YSA. They are being very helpful and have a great spirit about them.

We were very tired at the end of this day, but it was worth it!
This week we received very sad news that Griselda, the new convert from ElSalvador, is returning to South America and her family. It's sad for us, but very good news for them. Immigration said she has come to the end of her allowed time here, and has no further time allowance in Canada. Don't know her departure date yet, but she has a great attitude and a very strong spirit.
Today, Saturday, August 11th, we went to the temple in the rain and fog. Temperatures really change from day to day. Yesterday was in the high 80s with high humidity, today in the 60s with rain and fog. Anyway, when we arrived at the temple we were invited into the temple president's office, interviewed, and set apart as temple workers. We'll be serving there on Thursdays, to go along with our other assignments. We're really looking forward to that experience.
