Week 16: November 4, 2013

 P day p day gotta have fun on p day!

Heya family! How is everyone doing? North Shields is doing great! I love it here.

So I don't have a lot of time to write, but I want to share a few things from this week. So first. Robert. We have been trying to meet with him for a few weeks but he has been really busy. We finally set up a time to teach him at the Morrisons cafe. (Morrisons is a grocery store) (Note from Lisa:  Brits are usually very private people and are more hesitant than Americans to invite strangers into their homes.  It is much more common in GB to arrange to meet up with strangers at a local cafe/park/other public place) Well we went there a few minutes early and the cafe is closed! We didn't know what to do and so we decide to call sister thompson who lives a 10 minute walk away. Then Robert shows up. So we ask him if we can teach him in a members home 10 minutes away and he says yes! So we go over there and teach him and the Spirit was so strong. I know he needed that as well and Heavenly Father helped him to be able to feel that by not having the lesson is some dodgey cafe! There are so many miracles here. 

On Saturday I was on exchange with Elder Caldwell a greeny from Washington and we felt impressed to go by one of our investigators, Tracy, who had been struggling and we were thinking of how to help her. Her phone didn't work so we decided to pop by. She answered the door and explained that her mother had just passed away and we talked to her for a long time on the door step. She felt a lot better after and told us that she knew there was a reason we came by. Heavenly Father guides us so much.

Well I love all of you and pray for you all the time!

Elder Gurney
