This week I am craving.....a chili dog.

Well it has been a good week. I have been like super sick (don't freak out mom) but I will survive. Usually I can kick a cold in like 2 or 3 days but this one has been hitting me for nearly a week, bad. I will probably go to the doctor soon if it doesn't go away.

But other than that we have had a fantastic week! We found a new investigator this week named Deyana. She is 22 and works as a crane engineer (she fixes cranes on the fish docks) She is a boss! She is super excited to read the book of mormon. Not much else has gone on this last week because I have been trying to rest a lot. Oh I had to teach gospel principles yesterday in church because literally no one else could. It was a great experience because I was like just healthy for those 3 hours at church and nothing else. Definitely supported by the Lord. Hopefully the lesson went alright.

I cannot believe Alex Olaussen is working at the hospital with Janna! I lived with him for 4 and a half months before he went home. I never was his companion but I would have loved to be. One of my favorite missionaries!

Well I hope you all of a good week! I will attach some pictures because I have been so bad at sending them lately.

Love you!!

Well the town of Great Grimsby is doing just great. It smells like fish all the time, which sucks. But it snowed! Which also sucks. English snow is just disappointing.

We went to Hull on saturday for a meeting which was exciting! Well after the 2 hour bus ride that started at 7 am. It was weird to be in such a big town again!

It isn't a very successful place for missionary work here. I found out today that this area finds like 1 new investigator a month. thats with 2 ward and 3 teams of missionaries! But me and my companion have found 2 since we got here and are planning on changing that culture.

I am really happy. I love the missionaries I live with and I love being a missionary! I hope you have a great week!
