Greetings from the UK

Good morning family and friends,

Since Halloween, the temperature has been getting colder. It's been raining a lot and it's quite chilly. The bad part about it is that the temperature is going to get colder. Wooo hoooo!! 

This week has been good. Everyday molds together so it is hard to tell all the days apart. This week Sister Lybbert and I were flogged a lot. (British term for leaving behind or ditching.) So this week wasn't the best. We knocked on quite a bit of doors and were rejected every time. On the bright side Eddie is still keeping strong. We taught him about tithing and he has committed to pay his tithing and on Saturday he passed his baptismal interview. This Saturday is his baptism! I am so excited for him. He is quite nervous but he knows it is the right thing to do.

This week we were going to an appointment with a woman named Syllene. Just as we were coming up to her door we see her coming out. She was trying to flog us. We talked to her for a bit and invited her to come to the Ward Activity the following night at 6:30. She came to the ward activity with her two daughters!! The whole night we talked about our faith and she is very interested. At the end she told us that she thinks God sent us at the right time in her life. Heavenly Father works in wonderful ways!

I would write more but that is really all that happened this week. Being flogged, knocking on doors, continuing to meet with Eddie, talked with Syllene, and taught lessons to a few other people who weren't really interested. Missionary work is amazing! I continue to grow everyday. I am amazed at all the things I learn. Thank you all for our wonderful support. Love you all! Have a wonderful week!
