Week 2, Transfer 5
We have plans to do a lot of finding this week so we can get more and more pure investigators. We're so pumped!!
This kid doesn't look THAT tall..but he's only FOURTEEN YEARS OLD!! HE IS SOSOSOSOSO TALL. and probably the funniest person you will ever meet.
In order of appearance, on Wednesday we had a mission tour. So half the mission was at the meeting on Wednesday and the other half was on Tuesday. We had Elder Kearon, the first councilor in the Europe Area Presidency come and speak to us. It was in York chapel, and the York Stake President was there as well. Sister and President Pilkington also spoke. It was a fantastic meeting. We did a survery a while back for all the missionaries in Europe and the meeting was tailored to what we wanted help with etc. It focused on finding a lot. It was great. Elder Kearon is English but lives in Germany with his family. Half way through the day (the meeting went until about 4pm) Elder Kearon talked about our schedule. We all went through our morning etc. and it got to exercise and he was like 'Who likes exercise? Who can do push-ups?' I put my hand up thinking that all the Elders have their hands up already anyway. I was sitting front row in the middle (all the sisters sit up the front at every meeting). Little did I know that the assistants and about half the sister missionaries were pointing at me when he asked everyone. They know I like my gym! So, I got up, in my skirt and my boots, and started pumping out tricep push-ups, in front of 145 missionaries which is half the mission. Not your ordinary push-ups and definitely NOT girl push-ups. I don't know how many I did, but I didn't get tired and I did them for awhile and then Elder Kearon wrapped it up and congratulated me and I sat back down. Sister Pilkington came up to me afterwards and said how proud she was of me because an elder did them the day before. So there you go everyone, representing the sisters in our mission!!!!

Jeff was invited to church Sunday but said he couldn't come. Then he shows up at church and Sister Edgington and I were so excited to see him! He stayed for Sacrament and Sunday school. The last time he came to church when we weren't here he only stayed for Sacrament meeting apparently. So it was great he stayed for 2 of the hours. What a legend! It's been a lovely week of finding and member visits and serving and teaching.
I'm waiting for the snow though! It hasn't come yet. Disappointed! I'll keep my fingers crossed!
That's all from me. Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!!!! :)
Love y'all! xxxxxxx
In our flat, mind the mess!
