It has been a busy 3 weeks since I have arrived. So first off, my first meeting with President Nicholas was great! He is such a sweet, funny man whom I love, adore and respect greatly. The moment he asked to see me he put his arm around me and said, "So, you are from Edmonton and called to Calgary.....how does that make you feel Sister Blommaert?" I told him that I was proud to serve in not only my home country but my home province too and that I'm ready to go!! He smiled, laughed and said he had confidence in me and that I would fulfill the purpose of my being here, he had no doubt. His wife is a sweetheart! She reminds me so much of my Grandma Shields. She is a loving, incredible woman.

My new companion's name is Sister Martin and she is from Highland, Utah. She has been out for about 3 months now. She has a bright personality, is super sweet, has a great knowledge and testimony of the gospel and connects well with the members and those we teach.
Here is a picture of her and I on our first day together along with some of the Airdrie sisters, Sister Lamont and Sister Mortensen (she was in the MTC with me!)
