June 9, 2014


so tuesday we had a district meeting and then went out with a member and went by some less actives.


wednesday i was on exchange with elder vaquera and we went out with the same member and elder vaquera and i were knocking on doors and we ended up teaching a woman the restoration for 30 minutes on her doorstep.


thursday we exchanged back and it was supposed to be our weekly planning but we had to go get new bus passes so we were late getting back, then we had to go to a lunch appointment, then when we came back to the flat we had to wait for the repairman to finish so that we could get the zone leaders key back.


friday we went out and conquered a lot of Auf's in the middle of manchester and guess what!!! some protesters decided to ride around manchester on their bikes completely naked!!! how crazy is that! luckily we recieved an advanced warning from the zone leaders and we left the area before it happened.


saturday in the morning the district leaders in our zone had a meeting with the zone leaders so the 5 junior companions took their car and knocked an entire neighbourhood.


sunday, we went to the missionary fireside, and i saw elder leiva and elder gourratt who was also trained by elder leiva!! and jordan was there at the same time!!! haha then on the way back from the fireside we got stuck in traffic and we were 1 mile away from our flat for 1 hour!! 1 HOUR!!!!! we didnt get back until 11:00 pm.

so my week in a nutshell...

haha so earlier we were invited to come to a bible study at a church that was described as a green hut..... turns out he wasnt lying haha so after 2 weeks of trying to get there ( first week something came up, and the second week we couldnt find it because... WE WENT LEFT INSTEAD OF JUST LOOKING TO THE RIGHT WHERE IT WAS ABOUT 1 MINUTE WALK AWAY!!!)

we also went to transfers:) haha we got to go since elder chong was going home and had to go to the temple at 6:30 in the morning so his companion became our companion for a while so we got to go to transfers!! 

also on friday i got to go on a mini exchange with a brand new missionary, Elder Konyana, (been in the mission for 2 days) and we were able to go and teach a lesson.

then on saturday elder rasmussen and i went to birkenhead so elder rasmussen could baptise someone that he taught before and upon arrival he realized that he forgot all of his baptismal clothes at the flat haha.

and last but not least i got to hang out with Jordan and Cara!!

Show me the bus pass

June 2, 2014

so on tuesday we had a district meeting and then i was on exchange with elder diederich and we were able to teach two people with some members and then we went to teach another investigator and someone we had been trying to get ahold of finally called us back and we set up an appointment with him for that night!! unfortunatly serving in manchester has its downside as well... if they are ysa aged then we have to turn them over to the ysa elders.
i cant remember wednesday. thursday we had weekly planning and we were tracting an area and we ran into this man who believes in almost everything we believe in except that he doesnt believe that there was an apostasy and a restoration, so we are super excited to meet with him and teach him.
friday we taught a man who had been referred to us but unfortunatly he is ysa aged as well. then later we went to go see a less-active but he wasnt in and on the way back a man tried to get on the bus but he wouldnt show the bus driver his pass, so the bus driver wouldnt let him on so he started saying that the bus driver was racist (i think he was jamaican)(the man not the bus driver) and started threatining the bus driver and no one on the bus said anything haha he had one person read the validity date but at the same time he was covering the picture (we are pretty sure the pass was stolen) and as soon as the man stepped off of the bus the bus driver shut the doors and drove away hahahha.
saturday we helped clean a members flat who is moving back to oklahoma, and we helped clean the chapel.
on sunday... Jordan came to visit!!!!
