Here's another weekly update from the land of North Shields, England. This week has flown by again! Some highlights in this juicy week include, spending a day with an Italian, the Whinhams being canny, and going to Hogwarts!
Man it's crazy, I feel like I was just barely writing my last weekly update. Time flies! I was able to go on an exchange with the one and only Elder Sicardi from Rome, Italy. We went up to the Alnwick area to a village near the boarder of Scotland called, Berwick. It was such a beautiful drive! Elder Sicardi is a really good bloke. He's a very diligent missionary and although English isn't his first language, he's very confident in the way that he speaks with people. I learned a lot from him on that exchange. Elder Mills and Davies found them an investigator as well, which was ace!
So back to the North Shields area. You guys remember James, the 14 year old boy that we baptized a fortnight ago? His mum is super interested in the church! She's come to church the past 2 weeks and it's been so good to see the whole family sitting there so happy. The sister missionaries have been teaching her and her baptism will be soon. So they are doing very canny!
This last P Day we were able to go somewhere brilliant, THE HOGWARTS CASTLE! It actually called the Alnwick castle, but it's where they filmed a lot of stuff for Harry Potter. We timed it just right going there as well, because a really posh family owns and lives in the castle from October to next spring. It was such a breathtaking place to be. Elder Davies had a wand and we brought it with us and were messing around quoting Harry Potter....haha! Another thing we did was that we drove to the Boarder of Scotland. Don't worry, we didn't cross the boarder, but we got a picture of it!
The missionary work is going alright too. We're just trying to find more peeps to teach again. We found one bloke named Colin, the same name as my brother back home. Shout out to him! Colin is from a place called Wallsend. There's something really cool about Wallsend that I learned too. It's where Sting from the band The Police are from. I'm going to try and scope out the exact house that he grew up in... haha!
we're getting trained on how to use Facebook in our missionary work, so that will be interesting. It's fun being creative and trying to brainstorm ideas on how to find more people to teach. It should be another smashing week coming up. I'm super pumped! Hope you guys have a great week too, cheers!
