It was a great first sacrament meeting! The people here in the ward are wonderful and they're a close knit group. I love them already. They welcome so many people! In the meeting an American family spoke about Jesus Christ and His light that each and every one of us have. It was really inspiring because the light of Christ is with everyone and it affects each person in their own way. I think it's a wonderful gift God has given us.
So things have been great with Elder Botcha! For some reason we're both trying to read Book of Mormons in different languages haha, him in German and me in Tagalog! It's interesting the conversations about language we get into! He also tells me a bit of Hindi and apparently is going to teach me to make curry! I'm excited haha. It's great serving with him, he's a good teacher and helps people feel comfortable.
Pretty much how we travel all the time is on double decker buses and the tubes! It's so fun. And we can talk to a lot of people!
It's great being able to teach people here in Whitechapel. I look forward to every day I've got!

I want to add a bit. I had a MIRACLE!!! So today we were going to Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower) to meet with some friends but it turned out we couldn't find them! So we went to Trafalgar Square and then decided to head to South Kensington to see if we could hang out with other missionaries. So when we got on the tube we sat down but then a stop later some people got in and we offered our seats to them. So I was standing in the middle while Elder Botcha was close to the door. There was a mother and her daughter sitting in front of where I was standing were speaking to each other like they were lost and they sounded American! So I said hello and asked if they knew where they were headed. They said South Kensington! So I said don't worry, it's in a couple stops, we can show you. Turns out they were staying near our Hyde Park chapel and were from Missouri and it was their first time in the tubes haha so we started to show them back through the station. As we went along we started talking about what we were all doing here in England. They said they were on holiday and we talked about being missionaries. So we invited them to take a tour of our Hyde Park chapel and they said sure why not! We had a great time touring it with them. Afterwards we showed them out and got their information so we could send some missionaries to them in Missouri. I think the best part about it was that they got to learn about what we believe which was extremely similar to their beliefs and we got to make a good friend. They'll be touring a little more of Europe though so I'm a bit jealous haha but it was a great miracle we could see. God works in wonderful ways to connect people and help them hear about the gospel.
