Time for a change!

Hey mom!

Yes Congratulations to Shannon! And Brianna, it`s a big day!(Shannon and Brianna are getting baptized this coming Saturday).

My mandarin is ok, no practice really, but speaking of that... EARLY TRANSFER! So normally transfer calls would be this Saturday, but I got a call yesterday from Elder Williams, I am going to be transferred early... I am going back to Dows Lake Ward in Ottawa, the YSA.. but this time.. CHINESE! I will be training again! This time it is another Chinese Elder, they are coming a week early from the MTC so I got an early call! It`s exciting because I get to go back and see old friends, and be in a Chinese area, but I am a little sad to be leaving Hochelaga and Elder Fontaine. Elder Fontaine is so cool! We are going to keep in touch him an I. It`s also a little sad because I won`t be here for the baptism on Saturday of the boys we have been teaching, or the Ruiz family in November. But maybe President will let me come back for those. We will see. So thats some exciting news.
I`ll keep an eye out for Elder Pilling. (Friends of ours...their son will be arriving in Taylor's mission next week!)

My time here in Hochelaga went by soo fast. Met some great people, and made some new friends. A new chapter begins soon. I`m really excited to train again. Working with a new missionary. It is a great learning opportunity.

I loved how the prophet emphasized the importance of missionary work. (2 times a year we listen to great speakers on all topics relating to the gospel and life in to improve and find peace in an ever-changing world...can't help but feel uplifted.  Talks are available to anyone at )  In Doctrine and Covenants 88:73 it said the Lord will hasten His work in His time... the prophet said on Saturday... the time is now. We need to be united in doing the Work of the Lord. Members and missionaries need to be united in their efforts. I wish I shared the Gospel better with my friends, it really is the most important thing in the world.  Knocking on random doors unfortunately is no longer the best way. We have to pray for and be on the look out for opportunities to invite people to learn about the Restored Gospel. I LOVE being a missionary, and will be for life. It is awesome!

Well there are some of my thoughts. Have a great week!

Love Elder Heinzlmeir
