Way ay champions! It's been a really good start of the transfer this week. I chilled with an English bloke, Newcastle won in football, a man let us into his home then kicked us out, and some proper miracles have happened with Justin and James!
It's day 6 of living with an Englishman. I'm still somehow alive from all of the sarcasm and cheeky comments. Haha.... Elder Davies and I are doing well. I was right on how close he is to going home, he has 11 more weeks so time is ticking down and I'll probably kill him off. Davies is a good experienced missionary. He's from down souf(south) like I was saying, in a city near Dover, England. He just had a baptism in his last area, Keighley near Leeds, so he's super pumped to work!
Newcastle beat Westham and everyone was wearing their Newcastle Jerseys. Apparently, the culture here is when they win, they literally wear their jerseys for the entire week, even after the game. Newcastle has got some pride haha!
So a funny quick story for you. Elder Davies and I were knocking and this man answered his door and yells at us and tells us that he doesn't want to buy anything that we're flogging, then Elder Davies told him, "Are we asking for a price?" Then the guy let us in and asked for our views on some topics, then kicked us out. At least we gave him a Book of Mormon though.
Justin's baptism is and we are all super excited! We only need to make the programs and we'll be ready. It's always worth the effort on helping someone to experience the blessings of baptism!
Another miracle we've seen this week is teaching James. He's a 14 year old and he took the lessons before I came to North Shields. His family got back from Florida last week and he's all of a sudden really interested. So we set a baptismal goal for him for the 9th of September. We've been teaching him every day this week and he's really enjoying it! We showed him the "Dare to be a Mormon" video from good old Tommy Monson and he loved it! So overall a good week! We've got Zone Conference so I'm gonna get stoked on coconuts about missionary work some more.
Take care and cheers! (Forgot to take pics, but I'll get some next week!
