Miracle Story

Dear Family,

Here are the answers to your questions.

Question #1: What is your area in Northampton like compared to being in London?

It's much different, it is fun getting back into the town center finding. In the town center you have people to talk to, out there is barely anyone. London is kind of just one big town center. We get to knock much more, I like it a lot.

Question #2: Does everyone in your area get a car?

All Zone Leaders except the Lea Valley Zone Leaders have a car. Out of the
seven areas in this Zone, three have cars.

Question #3: What have you learned about your new companion, Elder Brownley?

He was born in England and moved to Canada when he was 3. He's a funny guy and is really good at sharing powerful messages with members.

Tips for contention I have learned on my mission: slow down and think if it really even matters.

Mom, I have something new for you to try making. Its is called "Toad in the Hole." Basically sausages with yorkshire pudding poured over it.

Miracle Story! We were early to a dinner appointment with the Elders Quorum President and his wife so we did a bit of tracting. At about 5:26 we knocked on a door. The lady wasn't interested but when asked, said that a guy across the road might be. We knocked the door at 5:28 (2 minutes before dinnner). He invited us in, we stepped in only to ask if we could come back at 7:00 after dinner, he said yes. We had a great appointment with the members and invited the EQP to come teach with us. It was great! Then at church the Elders Quorum President was sharing it with the other elders. It was great.

I really think the member work in this ward is about to kick off. Speaking of that, I am actually in the Duston area and ward. Recently the elders here had two wards but sisters came in and now they are Northampton and we are Duston.

We teach a guy who plays professional rugby. He is married to a member, he's really cool.

Sorry, my time is cut short a bit today. Have a great week!
