This week was really good! We met with that guy who gave me the chicken nugget and wanted to know why we are so happy. He just asked a lot of questions to try and make us question our faith and we haven't really been able to get in contact with him since so that was kind of sad but then we met quite a few more people. We met this lady named Jacky and she was super cool! We met her on the street and she invited us back for the next day. She loved what we said about the Plan of Salvation and about how she can know this for herself! But then we came back the next day, and after like 5 minutes of contentious questions and statements she told us to get out (she hadn't been keeping the word of wisdom either) so that was fun. But we did meet a few more people who we are seeing this week. A few we feel pretty good about so hopefully it will all work out!!
We also had our missionary Christmas social this week!! It was soooo much fun!! Man I loved it!! Sister Pinther and I did a talent for the talent show. We caught skittles in our mouths. It was lit.
Yesterday was Christmas!! Oh man this has been the funniest Christmas I have ever had. Definitely one for the books and one I will never forget😂
Okay so no one from our ward signed up to have us or the elders over for Christmas. But our fearless District Leader, Elder Bailey, said that a member from his ward invited us over as a district (shoutout to Elder Schmidt because he used to serve in Gateshead) so we spent the day with Brother Bell and the elders in Gateshead! But we had to leave at 4 because Brother Bell was going to his son's house. So then Sister Pinther and I went to the chapel to Skype our families! Definitely a highlight! Then we went to the elders' recent convert's house and spent the rest of the night with them, playing games and eating pancakes. Then the elders took us home. Then just after ten, they call us and say that the North Shields sisters can't find their flat key so they were going to pick them up and bring them to our flat. So that happened. And then this morning we got to sleep in until 8.30 which was really nice! And then this morning we were just chilling and then we noticed that there was a leak in our ceiling! Yay!! And then right after that we hear one of the North Shields sisters yell "YOURE KIDDING. I CHECKED THIS POCKET THREE TIMES LAST NIGHT" as we heard keys jingle in the room they were in😂 so that's been my second Christmas experience as a missionary hahaha. Man it's just been hilarious.
We don't really have plans today either and we aren't proselyting since it's Boxing Day so looks like it's going to be another day spent with just missionaries hahaha. But it will be fun.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the
Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which
is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Love you and miss you all!! Have a great week!!
