I have been called to serve in the England Manchester Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My ancestors are from areas within my mission boundaries. This follows the notion that you never lose touch with your roots. This blog is an archive of my experiences in England.

Good Things are happening in Wrekin
Sister Church & Sister Christensen
This week has been very good! I have learned so much! I am
now serving with SisterChurch! She is from Idaho and has only about
three transfers left. She is such a good missionary and I learn so much from
her everyday. Her family is huge! She has 10 brothers and sisters and has 30
nieces and nephews! Families are great. I love big families; they don't really
have them over here.

I have had to up the ante in the last couple
of days. It has been stressful but I'm learning to really rely on the spirit
more instead of just going through the motions. I involve myself more in
preparing the lessons and the plans. It is more responsibility but it is good.
Apparently companions are supposed to have equal responsibilities, who knew?
We had a really good meeting yesterday. Our
investigator, A, came to church! Well, he always comes to church but he just
got back from New York
the night before and still came to church even though he was really tired. He
is so good! He is really dedicated to coming to church and believes that it is
true, I think he just needs to understand faith a little bit better because he
wants to know everything before he gets baptized.
We were able to contact D! We haven't been
able to set up an appointment with her for a while because she doesn't have
credit on her phone but she texted us on her friends phone so we were able to
talk to her! Miracles!
So many good things are happening in this
area, SisterChurch and I are going to baptize all
the people! Well, probably not but at least 1 or 2 of them this transfer,
