October 24th, 2016

This week was kind of a drag, because I got the stomach flu right in the middle of it. We had to stay in the flat for a day and a half, so I wouldn't get any worst and it would be over quickly. I'm really noticing my weaknesses this transfer with myself in missionary work and regular stuff that I need to improve my skills at in life. One of which is organisation, I really need to be more organised and remember things to do. It doesn't help writing it down because when you actually need do be doing it I'm out in and about not looking at something all the time. I also need to work on team work, especially being a leader directing the team work. I need to be helping my companion know what she needs to be doing to help the effort, I shouldn't just expect that she'll know what to do and how to do it. I also need be a WAY better a GQing, Oh how I wished we learnt how to have a conversation with random people on the street. It's just been a week of humility and learning for me. This is basically how my days went this week:
Monday: Cleaning flat then GQing at night
Tuesday: Assistants to the President or APs, came to our zone and we had a Zone Conference on the big 5, and role playing them in our District meetings. Which are things that our mission has, but are in Preach My Gospel only simpler. We role played the Holy Ghost Principle, Sister Truman rocked it! I'm so proud of her. But none of it was me, she's an awesome missionary. Afterwards all of us Sisters in the Zone went out and ate McDonalds... yumm. It wasn't that bad, they have these wraps now or they are just in Europe, but they taste pretty good and cheap. I also love their Cadbury McFurry Flavours. ANYWAY! We then were suppose to see a Recent convert but she never showed up. and the rest of the day was alright. Ended with Ward Council and Ward Co-ordination. I love going to these meetings because it helps me get to know the ward better, helps me give the Ward opportunities to help us and we can help them as well in their missionary work. 
Wednesday: I woke up at 4am feeling sick and then spent the morning wandering around town like a zombie till the Elders were able to give me a blessing which told me I should stay in the flat and rest. 
Thursday: Couldn't leave the flat all day...
FRIDAY: SO MUCH FINDING! and went to the wards Curry and Desert Night. Only in the UK you would have something called a Curry and Desert Night. Sister Truman was blessed to have her first curry. I could not believe that I've had two companions that had their first curry with me.
Saturday: MORE FINDING, a few appointments fell through again. In the Evening we went to Sister Cavin's, she's a mother of 7 boys!!! 30ish to 20ish now. It's starting to get dark at 5pm now, so it's scary to be out and about talking to people on the street when it's pitch black.
Sunday: Church, and had a Baptism this evening of a young man called Sam. He was a former investigator that an Elder found a few months ago and then the Elder returned to the same area. Randomly met Sam on the street again and started to teach him. He then had a change of heart and wanted to get Baptised. It had a powerful spirit at his Baptism, I love watching people come unto Christ. I can't wait to have my own investigators enter the gate of Eternal Life.
Monday/Today: We went shopping for Sister Truman's backpack. Yeah we are allowed those in this mission, I wish I knew before I left. :P And then doing some finding tonight.

Hope every has a good week!
