So this week has been super crazy. It's flown by so fast! It feels like it was just P day yesterday! Anyway. The reason it flew by so fast was because the days feel like hours! And I had two work overs this week. A work over is where I go to another area and we trade companions for a day. I went and worked in Colchester with our zone leader Elder Lingam on Wednesday! It was awesome! He only has one transfer left before he "dies" (goes home). We switched in Cambridge after our district meeting which my district leader companion so kindly had me teach a lesson in because he forgot until the night before to assign someone to do a training. And because I was around he chose me hah but it turned out a lot better than I expected. The work over was great and I got to witness a miracle. We went and visited with a less active family (an old couple) and we learned that the wife had terminal cancer. We went on to teach/practice teaching lesson one about how God loves us and he blesses our families. Right in the middle of the lesson, the Bishop of that ward knocked on the door and popped in to say hello. He said he felt inspired to come by and see how they were doing and such and just told her how much God loves her. She then told us all how she had been thinking about ending her life that past weekend and had prayed to know if God was really there and if He was she wanted Him to send someone to tell her He loves her. It was an amazing miracle that testifies how much God does love each and every one of us and He knows exactly what we're going through and what we need. My second work over I went and worked with Elder Tam (from Hong Kong) in Cambridge. He's an elder in my district. It was pretty good and we got to teach a few interesting people. It was interesting because before this work over we've always had a car to work in. Elder Tam and his companion use bikes. So we had to use bikes. They were such rubbish. I ended up on a tiny bike with a flat tyre that we had to use to get clear across town. It was the first time I've sweat here. It was insane! But it was the best workout too hah and it was actually pretty fun talking with Elder Tam and learning his tecnique and everything. Saturday we played football with some members again and this time we played a fun game where there's a goalie and every one is trying to shoot goals themselves but you can't touch the ball twice in a row or you're goalie. And you can't miss the shot or you're goalie. And if the goalie catches/stops it you're goalie. And if you're goalie and you miss it three times everyone gets to punch you. It was the best game ever!! Haha everyone ended up trying to get three goals so we could punch people and making long shots for fun and such. It was awesome. That afternoon we talked to one of our investigators that the missionaries have been working with for about a year. She isn't all there; she had a mental problem but she does learn. We just have to teach very simply. But the past two times we met with her she's been asking about baptism. As long as someone is accountable and wants to be baptized, we baptize them so for a while we've been making sure she's accountable and then during our appointment that day, we explained a little more about baptism and asked if she wanted to be baptized and so we set a date just June 29th. It'll be great, she loves coming to church and she wants to be baptized so bad. Yesterday (Sunday) our new investigator Patricia (crazy cat lady fits her well, she's awesome hah) came to church and was having really bad problems sitting for so long. She broke her back a while ago. So after sacrament we asked if she wanted a priesthood blessing and she said sure so after we gave her a blessing she felt better right away! It was amazing! And she was so happy and even though she didn't understand much of what the speakers said, she still felt the spirit and loves coming to church. It's great to see all the little miracles in missionary life. I love being out here serving the Lord. It's been the best decision I've ever made.
