Way Ay champions! This week was the final stretch with Elder Davies, we got transfer calls, went on an exchange in Ashington, and I got my favorite gift on my mission from Chris!
Well this week was my last week with the Englishman. He went off to Leeds to the mission office this morning and will soon tour the mission with his family. It's a proper weird experience serving with someone going home. It reminded me of how fast this experience happens and that I need to make the most of it!
A couple of nights ago we had transfer calls and..... I'm staying a little bit longer in North Shields! My new companion is going to be Elder Manaligod. He's from the Philippines! I don't know too much about him other than he's a funny bloke who's been on his mission for about 11 months or so. I've served around some missionaries from the Philippines in the past and they're super good people. The district is changing around a lot as well. The Fijian in Alnwick is leaving and we're getting a Native American lad from New Mexico I think, and a new trainee sister missionary.
Last Tuesday, we spent the night in Ashington with Elder's Bennett and Scheffner. It was a freezing blast! I forgot to gear up with warmer winter clothing, so I was colder than an ice lolly (the English word for a popsicle). It was fun because I went with Elder Scheffner from our home town Sandy, Utah. He's really into cross country, so we connected that way and quoted funny movies like Austin Powers and Ace Ventura! It's crazy cause we're only like a 15 minute drive away from each other and we didn't know each other before haha! We found a lady who is a Realtor and they are going to teach her today which is dope!
And finally, last but not least, the Chris update. Chris is doing sound! We received his membership number and now we are going to help him make a family history account and get a name for him to take to the temple! During our last lesson with him, he totally hooked us up with gifts. He gave us some delicious Vimto Squash, penguin biscuits and some SWEET Newcastle United jerseys!! Man they're so cool! I was so grateful to get one from him, because I've been itching to get one for ages! But yeah he's doing good haha. That's the main update for y'all. I'll see yous later, cheers!
