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.

NEW COMPANION So we had transfer callson Saturday. Sister Hansen is moving to Liverpool Zone and I
am staying in Wrekin and serving with SisterChurch.
I think she was foreordained to be a missionary.
This week was really good. We didn't have a
ton of lessons but I still learned so much. I am sad that Sister Hansen is
leaving. I have learned the most from her. She never gets mad at me or rebukes
me. She is patient and loving and diligently works toward being the most
obedient missionary she can be. I don't know how I'm going to serve without her
but she is going to be so good in her new area! She has made such a difference
We have one new investigator that we met this
week. His mom is a member and his dad is an investigator that the Elders teach.
His mom is completely deaf, so it is difficult to communicate with her because
she won't learn sign language. We were visiting her and he came in and was very
upset. He was also drunk. About a half an hour later, he came back in the room
and told us all about his situation "so that we didn't get the wrong
impression of him." He has had a hard life but he still believes in God.
He recognized that we were there to help him and wants to overcome smoking and
drinking. It was such a miracle! I am so excited to teach him because I know
how the gospel will bless him and his family.
I hope you all have a great week! I love you
