Cold showers, puppies and a sports night

So this week has been full of laughter, music and uh..good things.

I hope that your week has been the same for all of you :)

So on Monday we had Zone p-day and it was great because we did it at Sunderland! SO GOOD! This was after Sister Godfrey took us to Tesco to buy us our monthly food :)
When we got to the chapel we played chair football, ate pizza and watched FROZEN! OMYGOODNESS!!!! IT WAS SO GOOD! Now, I know what you are thinking, I have gone crazy.....THAT MIGHT BE TRUE.......BUT it was a great movie!  Anyways, if you haven't seen it. Thats all I will say....And if you don't like it, just remember that I am on a mission and either it was a good movie or my taste in movies has deterioated over

On Tuesday we found out that our bolier wasn't the decision was either we take a bath with the water that we can heat up in the kettle and on the stove or a FREEZING COLD shower. Now when I say something is cold, IT IS COLD! Because I am Canadian :) LOL. Anyways, that was an interesting start to the day and so because it was broken we couldn't really do much because someone had to be close to the flat to be there when the repairman came.  AND THEN WE FIND OUT THAT IT WASN'T BROKE, IT JUST OVER HEATED!!!! :S I felt sheepish :P Whatever the evening we had a visit with a member of the ward. His name is Stan Davies and he is a funny old man :P

On Wednesday we had district meeting, then district lunch and Elder Weggerson came on exchange and Elder Mielacher went to Durham. We went finding all day and talked to some nice fishermen again. They always have time to talk and kinda are a captive audience :P In the evening we went to the house of a former British military member and he fed us food from the Philipines! It was so tasty and then when the spice set in....IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!  hahahahahhahahahahahha.

Thursday the most exciting things were the visit with Mavis (the lady where we went for Christmas) and the ward splits in the evening. At Mavis's house we watched the Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration from his mothers point of view and it was just so wonderful. Everytime I watch this my testimony is strengthened. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet called by God and the our Heavenly Father exists and loves us. In the evening I went with Brother Tom Fowdy (the ward mission leader) and discussed what we can do to improve the work of missionaries in the ward.

Friday we had weekly planning and discussed what we can do better this coming week so that we can be better missionaries and better men. I am very grateful for the spirit to comfort and humble us during circumstances that might not be what we desire but are for our good. Then the afternoon we did service for the other teams investigator and once again I got the crappy job.......LITERALLY! I was cleaning up the dog poop! They have 2 siberian huskies which just had a litter of 6 puppies which were adorable! It was great to be able to serve someone and SEE a change :) In the evening we had the sports night again which was a great success! MORE MEMBERS CAME!!!!!!

Saturday was a day to get some more things done to fix the flat....radiators fixed...check....dryer fixed....almost check. Ward coordination and then Mavis's in the evening...Elder Li beforehand though had twisted his ankle on wet concrete and so we carried him a fair distance. After Mavis's we went to the flat to heal his ankle and let it rest. We just had a good night of discussing life and the matters of the universe.

Sunday was a good day in which we now have a new investigator!!!! he is about 6"3' and weighs a little more than me. He said that he would be baptized if he received his answer so please pray for him, his name is Jack
Have a great week
Elder Dotschkat
