 Crazy Week

So this week has been quite interesting in its content, on Monday we went out to a lesson with a guy who had his records removed by accident a few years ago in Ireland and so he then moved here and wants to come to church. He goes to get his records transferred and there are no records so now we are reteaching the lessons and he is probably going to get re baptized soon. Tuesday we had just finished our  comp study and were about to walk out the  door when we got a phone call saying surprise we have a meeting in Cheltenham. The assistants to the president forgot to tell our zone we had interviews that day until president had gotten all the way to Cheltenham chapel and the doors were locked and then it all came out that no one knew about it. We got the call but had already missed the train that would have gotten us there in time because it leaves at 9:40 and it was 10 so then we had to take a bus for 2 hours to get close and the zone leaders had to come pick us up for the meeting from there. Also we had exchanges the next day and so I went back to Worcester that night with Elder P (he came out at the same time as me) and we already had zone meeting for Thursday this week so we just stayed on exchange for 2 days instead of one and swapped back on Thursday at the meeting. It was fun to be back in Worcester again. We had dinner at the Nolan"s house my favorite members from the ward and it was great fun. Elder P and I were happy to be together because we are both serving with non Americans so when we say how great America is they think we are boasting but really we just miss some of the things you can only get there. Anyway on Tuesday we had an appointment with an investigator that we had to cancel which stinks because it was really hard to get in contact with her in the first place because she doesn't have a phone so we have to stop by and try our
luck to catch her. So it may take some time to set up another appointment. But on Thursday the train times changed so we missed our connecting train and so instead of getting back at 5:30 we got back at 6:30 and so we missed our appointment that night. Then on Friday we went and did some stop bys and did our weekly planning it was pretty wet that day and I was just really happy I had all my gear on. On Saturday we went out to Bromyard a smaller town in our area to try and contact a media referral that lived out there. We found the house but no one was home and so we may have to go back out there in the next week or so to see if we can catch him in. That night we taught an impromptu lesson. We went to stop by a less active member and invite them out to church and they had a friend over and we taught him about the plan of salvation. And that was cool we are going to ,meet up with him later this week. Sunday we had church and it was really good and then after church we went out to the Garlick family for dinner, they live in the middle of nowhere so it takes about a hour in just travel time to go to there house. They are totally awesome but we don't go out there to much just because of the time it takes. Tonight we are going out to that same guy as last week that we taught the plan of salvation.
Anyway love you guys
