Hiya!! Y'alright mates?
This week was actually pretty dang good!:)
'Twas a busy busy week from the start of it, but it went super fast!
I can't believe it....it literally seems like yesterday that I was sitting here writing last weeks email..:/ Time flies when you're having fun I suppose! ;)
We had a nice pleasant exchange with the Elders in Notts 2 Ward.
We kinda switch up exchanges every once in a while.
There are a few different ways of doing it...you can all stay in your own area,
you can all stay in their area, or you can split and have 1 companionship in each.
We decided on the Tuesday to go ahead and work in our area, all four of us in the morning/early afternoon. After that, we went to their area, all four of us, and worked over there.
It was quite nice to be honest!:)
So, before I tell you this story and whatnot, just note that yes,
something stupid was done in both instances.
We had iPad audits this last week...basically the office Elders check
that there's nothing stupid and dodgy on the iPads.
Well I got flagged for two things mainly...First, which I think I told you about last April,
was when Elder Pedersen lit all the Christmas candy in the flat on fire. Second, was when Elder Campbell and I made a makeshift petrol bomb and videoed it. (It didn't even work, which was the crappy part! Haha) Anyways, the day they did this audit thing was the same day we had interviews with our Mission President. After a nice spiritually uplifting and encouraging interview, which I was quite happy with, President called me in again to talk about this stuff. Basically he kinda rebuked me over it! And he roasted Elder Campbell as well...real bad. It wasn't a pleasant experience having to be in that room and face the consequences! Haha (Nothing against him obviously...we were the ones that had done something dumb!) It helped re-emphasise a powerful truth!....One day, every single one of us is going to be brought before the very God of this world and he's gonna ask us some important questions about what we've done with all our time here!! That day is as real as anything!
I witnessed probably one of the coolest miracle people this week!! His name is Denver. :) He's actually from Peterborough, but he's here studying at the uni. Basically, he got into contact with the missionaries in Pete' and actually went to church over there once. He came up here and just happened to sit next to a newly returned missionary in his psychology class. That YSA brought him along to institute one night and we took them aside to kinda chat. This kid is a legend!! He's one of the most solid people I've ever met. We taught the restoration and the room was just full of the Spirit. He kept on saying things like "I just want to stick with one church...I feel like God is leading me in the right direction." After a powerful moment in the lesson, we invited him to be baptized and he accepted!:D It just makes me so happy. :) His date is for Dec. 10th! AWESOME miracles happening over here in which I'm grateful to God!
I do believe that's about the major points for this week!
Love you guys so much!!:) Hope all is well in Zion.
Talk to yas soon mates!:)
