Is it really the last one? It's unbelievable. We had a great week. Very busy and I don't think it's going to change. A busy missionary is a happy missionary :-). We spent all of our time teaching the great people we're working with and preparing for our presentation at Zone Training day. Not too much has changed on people being baptized. It's something E. Lee and I have discussed a lot lately. The quality of people we are teaching now is amazing. They all have potential to be future leaders and teachers in the Church here. I think that's why the adversary is working so hard on them. Our meeting went well and my second to last interview with President Shamo was really good. As far as we're aware our missionaries really enjoyed the day yesterday and felt the Spirit. I know I did. Our presentation was centered on a talk (or article) by Pres. Monson called Finishers Wanted. I really enjoyed preparing and presenting it.
Because last week wasn't too eventful I'll tell you a bit about my schedule for the rest of my mission. Today we're going to go see some sights. Hopefully I'll have a lot of pictures to show you next week. Tomorrow we're doing a special exchange with the Southampton ZL's and E. Martin and I get most of Wednesday and all of Thursday to do an exchange. It's going to be a lot of fun. A couple of old farts preaching the gospel :-). I'm looking forward to miracles. Sunday is my last one in England. I got to share my testimony last week in fast and testimony meeting so I'm all set. I don’t think many of the members know that I'm leaving soon. It's better that way so they don't make a big deal out of it and the work won't skip a bit with the new missionary coming in.
Tuesday we just might have a baptism :-). Wednesday is my London Trip and Thursday I'll be having my last interview, temple session, and an open reception with any converts/members that want to come say goodbye to the departing elders. I'm so grateful for my time here as a missionary. I'm grateful for the amazing people I've met and had amazing experiences with. I love this land. It's beautiful and the people are incredible. I know the Church is true and it changes lives. My last two years of service has proven that in myself and to those who I was able to work with. Thanks for all the support that I've been given from family, friends, acquaintances, etc. Be it through prayers, letters, packages, whatever, all have helped. Any who read this blog or have been reading it that isn't a member of this Church I promise you that if you investigate this Church and it's teachings with a sincere heart you will know for yourself that there is a God who loves you. He does answer prayers. You will know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and can be your personal saviour. I know it and invite you to test it for yourself. You'll never regret it.
Thanks again and I look forward to seeing some of you soon!

Finally, an e-mail!

Well I couldn’t think of a good title to describe my past week. It was definitely interesting. We were only actually shut down from Saturday afternoon to Monday night. E. Lee is doing loads better and we've had two normal days so far, but didn't have any time to e-mail yesterday so here I am!
There's a term I picked up whilst I was in London. "yard sale" Our week was pretty yard sale meaning all over the place ;-). Although things were a bit crazy we were really blessed. Heavenly Father more than compensated for our weekend struggles and blessed us with a great week leading up to it. All the people we're teaching are progressing well. They're understanding the scriptures and definitely feeling the Spirit. I don’t' know how many of their baptisms I'll see before England kicks me out;-), but as long as they make it all will be well. I know I'll be wanting to spend some time making international phone calls my first month back mum so if possible, could you leave the international calls on our phone plan? Cheers. :-)
I've got to apologize for not having any pictures this week. I did do better than you though Kami, ha-ha and E. Lee is going to help me take loads the next 3 weeks. I suppose for my health's sake Trav I'll run, but the 3 mile bit is good for me unless no one wants the bigger stretches. I just really struggle running for long periods of time when a football (euro) isn't involved :-).
This week is supposed to be a normal one because next week is going to be different. Side note: what's normal for a missionary anyways??? Well we've got a Zone Training day on Monday so our p-day is moved to Tuesday so that's when I'll be having my last e-mailing session that I'm aware of. unreal........
Anyways, now that we're back on our feet, we're ready to make up for being shut down for a few days. Over all the Zone is great. That's what happens when you have good missionaries. We're seeing success in areas that haven't seen it in a while. It's great. I love miracles!! Especially when our friends we're teaching see em. Well time is short. We've got a DA in a few and also need to do some paperwork before a meeting tonight. Pray that I'll be able to pray in Spanish soon! It's killing me. I want to teach in Spanish so bad. Well I hope all is well for ya'll and hopefully very white ;-).
Love ya and see you soon!
