Dec 8, 2013

Hey Everyone,

Sorry it's been awhile since I've been able to write. Like always, it's been pretty busy. We've seen a lot of miracles in our own area and the work has really started to progress. Ever since Elder Texeira came things in our area became so different. We went from hardly having a proselyting area because of other time consuming tasks, to having one of the most productive areas in the mission. All in the space of 3 weeks. It's been crazy to see how fast the Lord is moving the work here. We had an entire family come to church today!

We went on a few exchanges this week as well. One of them was back in Preston, my second area. Since there are three of is in our companionship we've been able to go on a lot more exchanges. Two of us work with the zone leaders and the other works with a nearby District Leader and their companion in a trio. I was with the Preston District Leader for about a full day. It felt really good to be able to hit the streets and work the buses again. You forget what a bus is like after being in a car for almost a year. I had a crazy miracle as well. We were walking to a less-actives house and we turned onto a street that looked really familiar. We did some work on that street and we contacted a man who remembered speaking to me a year and a half ago. I didn't remember him until about ten minutes into the conversation. The last time I had spoken to him he was very negative and anti with what we were trying to share with him. He said the following year and a half after meeting was one of the worst times in his life. Things just started going wrong for him. His circumstances had humbled him. The Preston Elders hopefully can start teaching him soon. I met the nephew of a man I had spoken to while in Preston last year as well. Two people in one day! 

It's been a lot fun working with Elders Cox and Debenham. Being in a trio is a bit different but it;s fun. We are able to get a lot of work done. We've had some great memories as well. This past week we went to Costco for our weekly shopping and got way too much food. haha. Love Costco though.

All is well here in England. The work is hastening. Love you all loads!
