Thursday Elder Botcha had a meeting all day. So I went with Elder Wentzel (my mission cousin) and we had a blast in Whitechapel! We didn't have any set appointments so we just started traveling anywhere and talking the whole time. It was fantastic and it got me excited to meet new people!
Friday Elder Botcha and I continued on the travel talking and met a few more great people. I love having the opportunity to talk to so many diverse people here in London! It's like I can meet someone from Ireland and then see someone from Africa! It's great. I've been able to make a lot of friends all over the world.
Sunday was crazy! We tried to help some investigators to come to church... We ended up being late by 40 minutes to church. So we missed the sacrament. But the investigators came! It felt really weird and sad to not be able to take the sacrament. Thinking that I missed my chance. Luckily we got to take it in the Portuguese ward later but at the time it felt like I was messing up my week. I think sacrament is an important preparation for everyone's week going into the world. It is a much needed protection. It helped me to think a lot about what the sacrament signifies and the sacrifice made. I would hate to waste that opportunity for a fresh start because of a mistake.
This was a good learning week. I'm happy to be here and sharing the gospel to the world.
Pictures next week, I hope!
