Well I am staying my last six weeks here in Brid! No surprise. But I am getting a new companion, Elder Pryor, he has been out about 9 months.

Other than that, it has been a slow week. My companion had and ingrown toenail removed and it hasn't been healing right, so they are telling him to keep off it. But we are going to York again today to take picture so I will send those next week.

Love you!

Well it will be a short email this week, we are going to York to do some shopping and it takes like an hour and a half to get there on the train.

This week we did a lot of traveling. We had to go to York for a district meeting with President on thursday then spent the night there so we could make it to Leeds for a 9 am meeting with Elder Dykes and Elder Allen of the Seventy, but more about that later.

We had the opprotunity to see a couple of investigators in York when I was there. I don't know if you remember Gillian and Rodger, her son, but they are great. Gillian comes to church nearly every week, but does't really want to be baptised. It was so good seeing them and catching up. It is hard to believe it has been 4 months since I was in York!

So the meeting in Leeds was all about the mission implimenting digital devices into the work. In other words we are getting iPads. I don't know when, I don't even know if I will see one, but we are having a zone conference in 2 weeks and I think it might be then. It won't really change the work much at all, it really is just another tool we can use. It was a really great meeting though.

The work is still a bit slow here in Brid. We are still teaching Rory and Lynn who are doing good. They have been coming to church, Lynn is just really struggling with the word of wisdom. We are trying to focus more on finding.

Well I am really happy and I am excited to skype you next week!

Love you!

Well it has been a great week in Bridlington!

We started teaching the Peal family. Husband and wife with 3 kids who believe in God. This is unheard of. No one gets married here anymore, and if they do they are too wealthy to accept the gospel. We are so excited for this family. Keep them in your prayers.

Our teaching pool is steadily growing which is really nice. We still are doing lots of finding though. We have to spend two days this week in York and Leeds so our time is limited. The mission will be having a seventy come on Friday to introduce iPads into the mission, so that will be interesting. I doubt everyone will get one though so we will see.

Well I am happy!

Love you guys!
