New area - FaceTime Mother's Day Call


This week was pretty boring, nothing too exciting happened. We ran into an investigator that has been hard to contact yesterday and we taught him a lesson. That was nice, because supposedly he was really good before I got here, although the first thing he said to us when we got in was that he wouldn't convert. That's alright, we know better, don't we? ;)

Anyways, I don't remember if I told you, but Elder G is from Utah.  We have a lot of fun.  Newtown is really small. There is some other towns that we went to on Thursday, but we had to get a ride with a member, but that was nice. We go down and see less-actives that will probably not come back for a while because at the moment the place where we meet for church is about and hour and a half drive away from them. Also, because we're just renting a little hall, it looks like the Kingdom hall, just fyi. 

I don't really have anything else to say. Keep the commandments, read the scriptures. Bye!

Mother's Day Call run down from (Mom) Amy:

I figured out a way to screen record the call, so I can go back and listen to it whenever I am missing him and his big smile.  He told us in his new flat/apartment there is a Keyboard.  He is pretty happy about that.  He said that he's fed just about every day that he's been there so far.
He said that this area that he's in right now is one of the biggest, if not the biggest in his mission.  He said it's made up of a lot of people from Birmingham.  Some of the signs and such are in Welch, but everyone speaks English.  He told us his clothes and shoes are still holding up fine.  He said that even though he's in a bike area they are mostly on foot because one of the bikes has a flat tire.  He told us his new companion is from the same town in UT that he will be attending college in when he gets home.  (Snow College).  He asked us if he sounded different (in his speech).  He sounded pretty normal to us.    He thought we sounded weird.  (No English accent.)  I asked him what advise he had for those preparing for a mission.  He said, Read The Book of Mormon.
