:) That's right, Phonglei is officially in Manchester right now, doing some house hunting, and will be moving in three weeks or less. Now all we can do is make his transition over there as good as possible, and get him and his family in immediate contact with the missionaries.
Time to hit the streets again. I feel like we do that a lot :) I sure hope the saying is true, "for every knocked door in England, someone in South America is baptized." The people's hearts are quite hard, so Elder Gill and I have been thinking up some new contacting efforts and really focusing on the ward and how we can find friends who are actually interested.
And speaking of new contacting efforts, we're going to go Rubix Cube contacting in a few days here :) We'll pick one up today. You go out and ask if people can solve the Rubix Cube. Whether they can or can't, we talk to them anyways!
By the way, I didn't tell you that I had the opportunity to be a part of the Temple Visitor's Center musical fireside :) Oh my goodness, it was so fun. It was really nice to be able to sing again, it's been far too long. Took some time to learn the arrangement and practice with Sparks, and it was quite stress relieving actually. Oh my days, also! We had a baptismal service this week, for one of the Crawley Area Zone Leader's investigator. Her name is Tracey. She took her daughter to the fireside at the Temple, and after hearing us sing, she decided she wanted to take the missionary discussions. They had been trying forever to get her to listen! There you go, the power of the Spirit of music :)
Since I've been out on my mission my prayers have changed over time. I noticed the other day after going over my journal that the further I go into it, the more it talks about other people, and the less it talks about me. I often find myself pleading the Lord for my investigators more than myself. There's something special about being a missionary. When it comes to loving others, I think that my ability to do so has increased tremendously. Good finding means not judging, and that is something that allows you to meet many good people, and recognize the good in everyone.
Still giving presentations everywhere, I'll get to go to London on Wednesday, Wandsworth Zone :)
Oh, also, at that baptism, I was asked by Tracey to give a talk. It was on the Holy Ghost, the whole service was just really great. The Spirit was there, and it was a nice end to a long week. Our goals for this next week are pretty intense, we're going to be teaching four members with the faith to receive a referral to our next baptismal date. Should be good. Should be tiring :)
It was awesome to receive some Halloween cards from the family :) I don't think I've ever gotten a Halloween card before. They were fun :)
Lastly, the online work is going really well. We have two investigators who we have now taught all the lessons. They'll both be moving this upcoming week, going to the church that they are moving nearby, and asking the missionaries to be baptized. There's nothing like giving missionaries people who have been prepared to be baptized :) Teaching online is amazing.
Well, that's all I can think of, I love you a lot. It was really good to hear from you, your email and Kristin's were the only ones I got this week, besides other missionaries :) It was nice to hear from home. Need to head out. Miracles happen every day, make sure that you recognize them :)
