This week was good. I don't really remember what happened on Tuesday, but I'm sure it was great. Wednesday we went on a tour of some historical church sites. We went to Liverpool, which is a port where a lot of saints emigrated to America. They said there was a time when there were more members of the church in England than in America. There was also a museum there, and it had some stuff about the pioneers. It also talked about taxes, which was really interesting. I sent you a few pictures of the exhibits. Some are kind of funny. A lot of people are on welfare here...
We also went somewhere else. I forgot where, but we saw the river the first baptisms in England happened in. It was pretty cool. There was a chapel there that we had a meeting in talking about church history. I don't remember if I said, but I was asked to be a part of the musical number for it, playing piano. There wasn't a piano in the chapel though, only an organ. I don't actually know how to play the organ, but I told them it was fine. I was just supposed to accompany them anyways, so once we had finished talking over what we were going to do right before the meeting and people stopped watching me, I started freaking out. I don't know how to play the organ. Then I said a prayer, and I felt ok about it. Then we couldn't find the organ so we just sang a cappella. Anyways... Yay! :)
I went on an exchange with one of the other missionaries on Thursday. He was from Ecuador, I actually ended up doing more talking than him. That was weird. I have a Spanish Book of Mormon, so I think I might just learn Spanish just cause I need something to do in my free time...
We also went to the temple today. It was a little different than I've experienced before, but it was good. ;)
Yesterday, my companion and I did the conversion for Petrol (Gas) prices, and I guess it's about $8/gallon here...but the cars get way better mileage.
I also got an email that came this morning. It reads:
P-day got moved to Wednesday because of transfers this week. I still don't have much time though, so I'll send you a letter, but I have one story I already typed for Adam, so I'll copy that one here. Also, could you send me some money? my Side bag has already fallen apart. It wasn't very good, so I need to buy a new one... :/I met a man on the bus on Monday, and this is what happened.
Man: Are you a mormon?
Me: Yes! (yayayayayay! he wants to know about the church!)
Man: Can I ask you a question?
Me: yes. (of course)
Man: What does God look like?
Me: A man. (So far so good. :) )
Man: You should have checked first. You just follow man.
Man: When you put your shoes on in the morning, do you check to see if your toes are attached first?
Me: (oh no...) Uh, no. I actually already know they're there...
Man: Yeah, that's flesh, so that means you believe in man.
Man: You have to check first- do you know what the difference is between a mind and a brain is?
Me: (well this is awkward...) Well, I guess it -
Man: Let me give you a hint, what does a brain run on?
Me: Uh, oxygen...?
Man: Let me give you a hint! What is the difference between a dog, what does a dog's brain run on?
Man: A dog's brain runs on instinct, and....
Then I got off the bus. The end. :)
