Hello friends and family!!

This week, again, was a lot of finding and visiting members. We are finding our way around beautiful Grimsby a lot better now which is good! We taught these two Polish guys named Darius and Pzremek! They struggle a little bit with English but we make it work. (I may have been called to England but I feel like I have been called to every country in the world with all the foreigners I have been teaching. AND I LOVE IT.) they are a lot of fun to teach because they are so animated! And they kept making fun of me because I say "way cool" a lot (haha silly American). We had quite a long lesson with them because they had so many good questions! But it was really good and they are going to read the Book of Mormon!

GOOD NEWS: I can speak a sentence of Swedish. Sister Lundahl taught it to me. It's a line in a song. She sings the whole song but then there is one sentence that I get to sing and man I give it my all! It's "jag väntar vad Herren sänt" which means something like "I wait what the Lord sent".

Today we are having a thanksgiving dinner with our whole zone! I am STOKED. We were in charge of making the stuffing and let me tell you the stuffing here is nothing compared to America's stuffing. But it's the thought that counts I guess. So if everyone could eat some American stuffing in my behalf I would really appreciate it. I hope you all have a great week and that you eat a lot of turkey and watch a lot of American football. And remember to give thanks to the two people who matter the most: our Saviour Jesus Christ and loving Father in Heaven.

I love you all so much and miss you as well! xx

Man what a crazy week it has been. I moved to my new area on Tuesday! It was weird because I was by myself for about an hour. It was kind of scary to be honest. I didn't know what to do! But don't worry I made it. Then I met my new companion Sister Lundahl. She is from Sweden! Ah man I already love her so much! She is so cute and funny. Basically this week we have just been meeting members and trying by less actives and trying to find people to teach basically. The sisters in the area before we came were teaching one investigator named Michael. We met him this week. He absolutely loves the church! He says that Joseph Smith is his hero and he loves reading the Book of Mormon especially about Nephi. The only problem is that his family is really against him joining the church. Which is really sad because he's like 70 so he should be able to make his own decisions. But we're still working with him and trying to get that sorted. Hopefully soon! We have quite a few lessons lined up this week with people we have met so we're pretty excited about it. The ward here is amazing! They are all so kind and thoughtful. They really take good care of missionaries here. I already really love this area. People are so nice and so open to hear about the gospel. It's amazing!

Cool Experience: we were walking to a member's house for tea the other day and we saw a guy that was carrying a lot of groceries by himself and we asked if he needed help and he looked a bit shocked that we offered to help him and he accepted our offer. We took some of his bags and started walking with him. We introduced ourselves and he saw our name badges and he was like "oh I'm not religious at all and I'm not really interested in religion" and so, jokingly, I said "ah man well never mind then. Here are your groceries back" and he was a bit confused at first but then he realised I was joking and so he laughed and I think that made him feel more comfortable to talk to us. We all had a really good chat and he kept saying how grateful he was for our help because the bags were very heavy and he had quite a way to walk home. He told us he was going to post about this on Facebook saying how grateful he was for Mormon missionaries! We gave him our card when we got to his house and told him to call us if he ever needed help with anything else. Then we received a text from him thanking us again! It was really nice and hopefully, if anything, we planted a good seed in him. :)
I hope all of your weeks were good and I love you and miss you all so much!!

We had to climb a wall to get to a member's house.

Okay so I think I may have accidentally moved to the Antarctic this week because I am FREEZING. The problem with England is that it's wet so the cold goes to your bones and it's just miserable. But it's okay, I have the light of Christ to keep me warm😎

So I'm being transferred to a place called Grimsby. It's a little more south so maybe it will be a few degrees warmer at least...My companion's name is Sister Lundhal (I'm not sure if I'm spelling that right) and she is from Sweden! I'm way excited to meet her tomorrow! We are taking over an elders area so we won't know anyone and no one will know us so it should be an adventure! Sister Koepf is staying in Billingham and will be training again! I'm a bit sad though because we found a lot of good people this week that I was really excited to teach.

We found this guy Pierrot who is from Africa and he is so great! He really wants to learn about our church and eventually be baptised! He used to be taught by previous sisters but then stopped. We are still teaching Dave and he is still loving it!! A member gave us a few referrals yesterday and we taught them and the member bore a powerful testimony of the Book of Mormon!! It was so amazing.

I'm excited to take this new step in my mission! I miss you all so much and love you like crazy!
