Week 7: Hello ducks

Dearest people that I love,
Hello from Nottingham! Today we are in the notts city center for district p-day, and also because people decided to book all of the computers in Eastwood!!... Jerks... Just kidding. They are children of God.

Anyways, this week has been pretty awesome and obviously flew by.. It's already Monday again! Whaaat! But one fun thing we got to do this last week was travel to Birmingham for a follow-up meeting for everyone that is being trained/training. It was so fun to see all of my MTC pals again and see how they are doing! We also learned from that meeting that we must always apply our personal study. Not just to learn, but do everything that we learn! Man. Sometimes my brain hurts trying to think about applying everything I'll learn on my much stuff... so now we'll move on.

One thing everyone has been asking us lately has been how they can even believe there is a God, when the world is so evil. So obviously, I studied up and figured it out! Pretty much, how can we not believe?? Time and time again in the Bible the world has been evil, but prophets are still there and God is trying to reach out and save His people. I think the most extreme example is the story of Noah. Literally the whole world was killed except for his family, but they were saved because they acted on their faith in God and followed him. I think sometimes people forget that all God wants to do is protect us from all of this evil, and He provides the way for us to do that with the gospel. But honestly, the world isn't evil. Think about it... how many evil people do you know? Like zero. So chin up because God is real and has filled the world with incredible people.

Back to this last week. It was legit! I think a highlight was definitely Saturday night and church on SundayOn Saturday we were trying to figure out if Louise (a less active who called for missionaries to teach her family after 14 yrs) was serious about coming back to church. We had kind of decided that she wasn't that interested, because she ditched our appointments 2ce last week, but then we called her. No answer... But then like 10 minutes later she texted us letting us know that she was definitely coming to church the next day with 2 of her kids AND bringing her niece who she thinks needs the gospel. Man. I was literally dancing around I was so stoked. I may or may not have made up a song about it also.

So then when they came on Sunday, everyone must have been seriously inspired. Everyone that bore their testimony in the meeting (like 10 people) spoke purely of doctrine and of Christ, and the lessons went well and the members welcomed them with open arms. Bam. Miracle. I love church.

Anyways, I have like 3 more minutes before i have to pay £1.20 to use this silly computer again.. So Untill next week ducks.
