Hello from Foggy England,
This week has been a week of Christmas Caroling, Zone Conference, Jehovah Witness fun, and D getting off Tea.
we went Christmas Caroling in King's Square. It was a lot of fun and really cold! We set up a booth for the Church's Christmas promo and we handed out cards and Books of Mormon. We sang mostly Church Christmas hymns.
Zone conference was in Billingham. We had the North part of the mission together, so the Sunderland, Billingham, and York zone's were there. I saw Elder Barney again, so that was pretty cool! Elder Peña pointed out all of the people that he knew and had served with. I saw my old Zone leader Elder Iacapo there as well. It was a really good spiritual meeting and I learned a lot about how to teach better using the Spirit. Also, we had Subway for Thanksgiving dinner.
I went on an exchange with the Scottishman's new companion Elder Corpuz from Manila, Philippines in Harrogate. Harrogate is a very Americanized city. We had lasagna at an American family's house while we were there. It was a fun exchange. Elder Corpuz is a really mellow guy, that is super motivated to work. I liked Harrogate. It's about a 40 minute train ride from York. While I was on exchanges, we knocked on a really energetic Jehovah's Witnesses door. He shared with us from his confusing scriptures and we shared Maroni's promise.
We had another lesson with D this week. We taught him about the Word of Wisdom. When we started teaching him, he told us that he was already trying to get off of tea! He loved the Primary Program and said that he's coming back to church. Another really cool thing happened here in York . After church Josh the same young man that baptized Shawn, came up to us. His girlfriend isn't a member and he told us that she wants to take lessons from us. We're seeing them both ! I hope you all have a great week. Cheerio!
