Happy Halloween everyone! This week I did a bit of trunk or treating at the church, I met a man that claims he could track his ancestors back to Adam and Eve, and the Poppy celebration is coming up.
Today is supposedly the spookiest day of the year, so we have to be in our flats by tonight. We're going to do a deep clean and Elder Barney and I are gonna carve pumpkins during that time too. York 1 had a trunk or treat in the church parking lot. We were hoping to be able to get some of the people that we've been teaching there, but they couldn't make it. There were also a bunch of mini games going on in the gym. I did a bit of moonwalking to Michael Jackson. It was great!
I went on exchanges with the amazing zone leader, Elder Shäffer! I always learn a lot from him, while doing missionary work with him. We met with a York 2 member and he talked to us about using family history in finding investigators. He has made a pedigree chart back to Adam and Eve! I was a bit skeptical, but he claimed that he used royal lineage and biblical lineage. It took in 146 generations. Elder Shäffer and I were knocking doors that day and we had a lesson with a man named Peter. He's a Uni (University) student. Too bad he's in the York 2 area, because I was really looking forward to teaching him in the future. He said yes to baptism though.
Poppy season is next month and English people are really into it. Most people in the streets are wearing this red flower to celebrate the veterans from WWII. Albert Hickton, sister Hickson's dad's funeral is . A lot of the missionaries are going to sing at it. We've been seeing the Hickton's a lot lately and they're such amazing people.
Transfer calls are everyone keeps saying that I'll probably stay here in York and Elder Barney will leave. We'll see. I'll let you guys know.
Love you all -Elder Holyoak

This is a funny guy we met on the street.
No story, except that he was a little drunk, but he loves Mormon's!
