Elder Madsen and his companion made up fliers and went around and asked store owners if they could put the fliers up in their shops. These fliers announce that there are missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who would love to give service.  Elder Madsen is in High River, which was hit the hardest from the floodings of last summer.

They've had some calls from people who saw the fliers and a lot of people have seen them going around in their yellow vests, giving service. They shovel snow a lot.

Zach had an opportunity this week to use his Spanish. There was a sister who they had been asked to get her contact information, so when one of the elders recognized her, Zach was sent to explain who they were and what they were doing and ask for her phone number to pass it along to the Spanish missionaries. Zach said he hadn't spoken that much Spanish in "forever" so he felt good to be able to do that.

While spending  half a day working with Bishop Hirsche's cows, a cow stepped on Elder Madsen's foot. He thinks it's only painfully bruised and he's keeping an eye on it. He might get to go back and help deliver calves in the near future.

He didn't explain why, but they were given over one-hundred dollars worth of free sushi. Zach loves sushi and says they ate like kings that day, but Elder Stewart got sick afterward.

They've also been talking to other pastors, reverends and fathers of other churches to offer their service to them as well. Elder Madsen says it feels good to be out and working again. He truly loves being a missionary.
