September 23, 2013

On tuesday we had to go to the manchester south chapel for a skills workshop which went from 10 am till 5 pm and we didnt get back till 8 so we went to mochdre and ran into some kids who had been going pretty fast down the motorway when one of their wheels fell off.  While the one who had been driving the car was putting the wheel back on i had the opportunity to talk to the others about America and about my car. 

On wednesday, elder coleman, who had left his planner in runcorn on the 11th, finally got his planner back in the post.  We then went to Llandudno to try by some former investigators and then went to our tea appointment with paul. 

Thursday we had to go get my planner because i had left it at pauls flat and we ran into a couple who said that they would like missionary contact in Rhyl.  Then we went back to the flat for weekly planning after getting some of their information. After weekly planning we went to a recent convert and then to the carders for tea and then to another recent converts flat. 

On friday the gaerwen elders moved back into our flat because they were getting really sick and had found a ton of mold under the carpet in their flat.... and we had just cleaned up everything haha. 

On saturday we tried by a lot of people none of which were home and then we went to the chapel for indexing and also had a meeting with our branch mission leader and then we went to our tea appointment with the jeffers. 

On sunday we had church and then a lunch appointment with the heggs in abergele and when we were on our way back we stopped by a less-actives home.

September 16, 2013... What a Great Week!

September 16, 2013

Tuesday we had a zone meeting and then we had an exchange with the zone leaders and i ended up being in Colwyn Bay with elder Debenham.  We tried by some potentials and a less-active member after which we ran into a lady with five children and taught her the restoration on the spot.  We were able to get her information and set up a return appointment and then raced to our tea appointment.  Then, after our tea appointment we tried by another less-active and met her family and we ended up sharing a scripture with her son and set up a return appointment with him. 

Wednesday it was raining all day and when we went to exchange back, the other elders were an hour late.

Thursday we had weekly planning and then we taught one of our new investigators. 

Friday we went to Conwy in the morning and then our appointment with the other investigator fell through.

Saturday we tried by some potentials in Rhos, then in Llandudno, and then had tea at a members house.  Then, through inspiration and a full bladder, we went back to the flat and grabbed our potential sheet for Colwyn Bay and we received inspiration to try by a couple that lived close to the chapel.  And even though they were just sitting down for tea, we were able to get a return appointment. 

Sunday we had church, then a tea appointment and then we went to the appointment we had with the couple from the day before and we had the most amazing discussion ever!!  The spirit was so strong!  It’s time like these that I know that I made the right decision to go on a mission!  They said they would read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true and said that if they receive an answer that what we were teaching them is true that they would be baptized!!

September 9, 2013,

Since i just recently emailed not too much has happened.  Friday i took elder Coleman around to see some members and then we had some time left and sister carder suggested that we pray before we left to know which door we should knock on so we did and on the way back to the flat elder coleman felt inspired to knock on a certain door.  It turned out to be a man who was only going to be there for a couple more days but missionaries had knocked on his door 12 months earlier as well, but he had been living in a different location. By his reaction we know that he felt something.

Saturday we had the consecrated 4 hour finding and Elder Coleman and Elder Pywell had to go to a district leader council meeting, so Elder Neilson and i went to Penrhyn Bay to go by a potential investigator and to try to find new investigators. Later we went back to the flat to eat lunch, then we went to find along the promenade and we saw a double rainbow..... i keep forgetting to write in my journal so i probably left some things out.

Colwyn Bay, Wales
Saturday we got the transfer call and found out that elder leiva was going to blackpool and i was staying in colwyn bay. My new companion is elder coleman. Monday elder leiva and i deep cleaned the flat and went and saw members so that he could say goodbye and we did the same thing on tuesday except that we had a farewell party and we got kebab pizzas and chips (fries) and soda. Oh, and they all shot me with nerf guns.
