It was great to see you all on Sunday. Fun to be together via facetime for Mum's day!
|Yay! Mother's Day|
My week was really good! I saw Big Ben and Buckingham palace for the first time on the way home from Mission Leadership Council (MLC) in Hyde Park (HP) Chapel.
MLC starts at 10, so we have to leave Colchester pretty early to be on time due to heavy traffic in London. We picked up the STL's early wednesday morning to go, and Sister Lung said a prayer that we'd arrive at 9:45. Long story short, I drive and miss a couple of turns (awkward) and traffic is pretty bad. We were approaching a turn at one point, and as we were waiting I saw a train on the bridge. I recieved a prompting that we should take a train into MLC in attempts to be on time. We talk about it and decide to go to Stratford Station. We find a car parking lot, take the tube to South Kensington, and walk to HP chapel. We walked through the doors at 9:44! How crazy. What a miracle! We were even given an extra minute. It's almost as if the Lord was saying, "Don't worry, I heard Sister Lung's prayer. You're in good hands. I'll even give you an extra minute to use the restroom before the meeting." It's the little things :)

As I said during our facetime, on Sunday I cooked cod for the first time. For the entertainment of Brock and Drake, the package that originally contained the fish said "fishmonger" on the label.
Life is good! I'm staying in Colchester for another transfer with Elder Jensen. This transfer will only be a 5 week one (they're usually 6 weeks), so I anticipate it'll go really fast. I also fixed my iPad screen today. Elder Jensen and I also bought a companionship tie today. I'll send you a picture when we decide to match.
