The beach, a castle, some swans & a Canadian goose

Hello everyone :)
So this week was pretty good :)

Monday - we went to Newcastle and got there an hour before the other people so we had to wait in the cold to have people open the chapel doors :P It ended up being the senior couple and so we played Phase 10 with them.

After that I went on exchange to South Sheilds again with Elder Koojiman and worked at this less active's home that night. She is from Zibabwei I think and so she fed us fufu and curry and rice and it was just all so good!

Tuesday - Elder Koojiman and I went finding around South Shield and it was beautiful. We went and saw the beach, a castle, some swans and a Canadian goose! :D it was great to be able to see all of these thing especially because I took pictures! I took 47 pictures that one day and for a missionary, that is A LOT!

Wednesday - We had district meeting again and it went well. I feel that they are becoming a lot better over time only because people are participating in it a lot more. Then the rest of the day was pretty crazy and stressful but let it suffice to say that I was upset at many things going wrong all at once :P So because so many things were happening all at once we had to get a member to deliver tea to us. I am so happy that she understood the emergency.

Thursday - Went finding all day :P Then in the evening we had tea at a members home and they ordered Chinese food for Elder Li and made pancakes with maple syrup for me !!!! :D I never really like maple syrup until my mission :P OH! and it was the real stuff from home :P lol

Friday - Friday we went finding all day and found some places with really nice graffiti, if you can say its nice. More of a talent than a nuisance in my eyes sometimes :) The most exciting thing about Friday was during the sport night. There is a member of the ward that brought her non member fiance and he agreed to let us teach him!!!! :D WOOT!!! soooooo excited!

Saturday - Went up to Newcastle for DLST and took some pictures with Elder P because he is going home next week. It is amazing to me how fast time is flying by! At this rate before I know it....ugh....I don't want to think about it lol I love this work, I don't think that I have ever laughed so much and so consistently in my life. There is always something to laugh about, whether it is something stupid that I have done or not :P

Sunday was Sunday. Twas a busy busy BUSY day in which we visited members and once again gave the sacrament to Bill. Also the other team in Sunderland has an investigator that passed her interview (done by yours truly lol) and is getting baptised next weekend. Please pray that it will all go well because she has asked me to give a talk and she has MANY friends invited to attend!
I must run now but until next week take care of yourselves!
Love you all !
