Conference Week

This general conference was really good I loved Elder Uchtdorfs talk in the Sunday morning session conference about German being the celestial language hahaha. But in general I learned a lot I felt like a lot of it was geared towards parenting and preparing at what ever stage you are at to be a good parent, there were some other ones as well about other things but I just picked up on at least that one common theme. And for conference we did end up down at Cheltenham for the Saturday session and them here in Hereford for the three sessions Sunday. It was good not a lot came out to the chapel now though everyone who is good with technology and has a good internet connection just stays home and watches it there which I can understand because that is what we do is sit at home and watch it on the TV so I can't blame them but it is good to come all together. On our way to conference we had lunch in Worcester because we had to stop there on our way and had to wait about 40 min for the connecting train and they had a market set up in he high street and there was a stand selling pocket watches and so we went and looked at them and I got one it's pretty cool, something to remember England by.This week has been better since it has been back down to just the two of us and the weather has been really good as well this week only one day of rain and the rest quite warm white shirt weather at least 2 days so that was really nice. On Monday we saw 4 or 5 people we are working with. On Tuesday Elder D got picked up in the morning by the zone leaders then elder S and I went and did some visits and on the way
had a heart to heart and just discussed things about what we want to see happen in the area and how we can make that happen. An so I feel like we understand each other better. Then we did some work in Leominster and some stop by's up there it was one of he few days this week that it rained but not for very long. Oh and on Sunday we had our clocks change so now it is quite light in the evenings still which is a plus for missionary work. On Wednesday we had district meeting then we did some work in Ledbury another town in our area and then we did some visits with the ward mission leader to some members that haven't been out to church in a while and that went really well then we did some other visits and then had dinner. On Thursday we had amazing weather and we used that to our advantage and went out to some of the smaller parts of our area that we have to bike to and it was white shirt weather all the way, then we had dinner with a member from Ireland and it was funny because I guess in Jamaica they call potatoes irishes instead of potatoes and it was quite funny to all of us. Then the ward mission leader had some or people he wanted to go visit and so he called and asked if we were free and we were so we went and did visits with him again on Thursday and it was really good. On Friday I had a flat tire when we went to go to a appointment so we walked out and dropped my bike off at the bike shop for them to fix it because I didn't have a spare tube for this bike yet so I had to have them do it. But we got to see Josie and it was really good. Then we did some stop by's and then a less active family's invited us out to dinner with them and so we went to an (American dinner) called Frankie and Bennies  it was okay but nothing especially American about it. On Saturday we did our weekly planning and then traveled to Cheltenham for conference it didn't start till five but because of crazy train times we had to leave Hereford on the 1:30 train to get there by 5, Sometimes the long travel just doesn't make sense to me. Then we watched conference and it was really good. Then we traveled back and to Hereford and then Sunday we got to the chapel at 8:30 for the priesthood session and then we were in charge of everything there so we were there till the end of the last session at 7 then we went and did some stop by's. This week will be a lot of travel to Cheltenham once on Tuesday once on Thursday and then in between we will be exchanging with Worcester but I will be staying in Hereford with elder S. he is from twin fall Idaho. So with all the travel that is probably when I will watch the other session of conference that we didn't get to see yet.

Love you guys
