April 21, 2014- Did the Driver forget He Was Driving?

April 21, 2014

I think Elder Butterfield must have broken all fingers this past week, because he didn't send a weekly report, only answers to the questions I asked him.  I can't think of any other reason he wouldn't have sent the report. hahaha  He gets an A+ on sending pictures though, so we'll just have to make up our own stories of how his week went.  It looks like he is doing so well and loving his area!

So, would the appropriate name for this picture be "Dumbfounded?"  lol!

So, I guess Elder Butterfield & Elder Chong (one the zone leaders he shares an apartment with) were having just a little too much fun with their bunkbeds!

Did the Driver forget he was driving?.......The missionaries carpooled on their way to the temple for p-day.  This is a picture Elder Butterfield took of the missionaries in the other car.  When I showed this to Mike, I said, that is so dangerous to be taking a picture while you are driving.  Then, he reminded me that the person taking the picture wasn't the England, they drive on the other side of the car.  Whew!  Good to know the driver hadn't forgetten he was driving!

When Elder Christensen came to Blackburn about
three weeks ago i was on an exchange with Elder
Razanadahy and we were exchanging back that day
so we decided to try by someone in the area and on
our way there we street contacted someone and set up
 a return appointment. We tried to contact him multiple
 times after that but he was either not in or was busy.
Then last Monday night we weren't sure what we
should do for i believe the next hour before our next
appointment and we decided to try by the man we
street contacted again, which we did and he was in
and he invited us in. We were able to teach him the
Restoration and I invited him to be baptized on April
19th and he said yes.

(Mike's new area is Stretford, just outside of Manchester. His new companion is Elder Yates from Bountiful, Utah and they share an apartment with their Zone Leaders, Elder Chong from Malaysia and Elder Calliera from Portugal).
Saturday an investigator of ours was baptised. He was found quite a while back possibly around 3 years ago and now he has finally been baptised. Yesterday he was confirmed a member and then later that night we went to the missionary fireside in Swinton and he bore his testimony there as well. Also i got to see my mission brother Elder Gourrat who is from Tahiti (Elder Leiva trained him).  We had a great week this week.
