October 28, 2013....Eating Air!

Sorry there was no post last week, but Elder Butterfield sent a "nothing much has happened yet, love my new area" noninformational email, so I didn't post it.  In the email I sent him this week, I told him that no more of the "nothing much happened yet" emails were allowed or he would be fired!  haha.....luckily, this week's email has a little more substance...

Wednesday we got a new investigator.

Thursday we had to go to chorley for a skills training and we have run out of funds so we have to walk everywhere and eat air.

Friday we planned for the upcoming week and while we were planning it was sunny out and as soon as we left the flat to go to our appointment it started pouring rain... i got completely soaked because our appointment was 30 min. away and we had to walk and when we got there we were 45 min. early so we had to wait in the rain with the lightning, Saturday elder rodgers and i had to wake up at 5 to clean the baptismal font for the baptism of the sisters investigator... i was so dead!

Sunday all of the talks were about missionary work and then after church i got to ride in a convertible BMW

October 7, 2013....Random Acts of Kindness

October 7, 2013,

Friday we went to our tea appointment. When we went to catch the bus back to our flat one of the people that we talked to last week whose wheel fell off, gave us a ride to the roundabout and seems interested in learning about the gospel.  Also the gaerwen elders car had a flat tire so porthmadog had to give them a lift to our flat… so we had 6 elders in our flat that night... talk about no room haha.

Saturday elder coleman and elder pywell went to a district leader council meeting and porthmadog drove elder nielson and i to bangor to pick up gaerwens car and take it to get a new tire.  Then elder nielson and i drove to the chester chapel to pick up elder coleman and elder pywell, then we went to gaerwen for the saturday morning general conference session.

Sunday we went to Rhyl for general conference.

***Just a little note...Isn't it neat that Elder Butterfield and Elder Coleman were helped by someone they helped a few weeks ago?

September 30, 2013

Wow  i look forward to seeing the Mena 1st ward when i get home haha.

Tuesday i had a sore throat and elder coleman and elder pywell had to go to manchester so i was with elder nielson, at the end of the night as we were walking around a woman came up to us and asked if we had a pamphlet for her so we gave her a restoration pamphlet.

Wednesday we had a district meeting and then we had a tea appointment with a recent convert who took us to an all you can eat restaurant and then we went to the chapel and participated in the YMYW activity and there were 2 nonmembers there as well.

Thursday we tried by some potentials and couldnt find one of them and when we found him we were able to set up a return appointment with him for the next day, then one of his neighbors came out and we found out that he had been taught 30 years earlier and we talked to him and invited him to church and he said that he would think about it and said that he thinks that we are an answer to his prayer he said 30 years earlier, then we went and taught 2 investigators and invited them to church and they said that they would come to church. 

Friday we went to penrhyn bay and later came back so that we could get our new shower and we met the neighbor of the potential from the night before on the doorstep again and talked to him and then our appointment with the potential fell through.

Saturday we went to Llandulas and were able to give away 2 copies of the BoM. 

Sunday we had church and then a tea appointment in Deganwy.
