Spiritual thought:Why is Serving Others Important?
It Teaches Us Important Lessons
John plays rugby, works as a sales manager, and is a father. As a child he was taught important life lessons through giving service and continues that trend with his family today. Service helps us learn to be more Christlike to those around us.
This week was ok, most of the appointments got cancelled, and nobody seemed to want to talk to us, but M__ and S__ are doing well. We haven't seen Either D__ since last time, and no-one came to church, as it was another bank holiday, so they went on a trip! It was Elder Fisher's Birthday, and M__and S__ made a cake for him which was nice, and the Thairs made him a cake and had us for dinner night. we made Manwiches! I sent loads of pictures for you this week, most of them just explain what the manwiches were like! The full meal was about 2690 calories each!

I love how organized your ward council is with helping the missionaries for teaching! Do the missionaries a favor, and keep it going, don't ever let them stop doing it. It would be so helpful to have a ward council like that!
Correlating with the ward isn't too bad with two sets of missionaries, the sisters just get all the DA's, Except the occasional one that we get, and the members just go on a teach with us if we are lucky enough to ask them at a convenient time for them.
This week was lined up and planned well, but it all fell apart on us, so we were left to try and sort it all out. This week is looking just as good though, so hopefully it works out this time.
The Mangoes and Jerky were a great treat, and no we didn't eat it all at once, actually we still have a few mangoes left. We even used them in a stir-fry at one point, with egg noodles and plum sauce with some chicken and onions. It was soooooooooo good! the jerky went by pretty fast though, I think it took us about three days to down it all! Thanks so much!
Glad you are ok from the drunk driver incident! It's really cool how everything worked out! I am glad that Heavenly Father is taking care of you guys! This is a picture of my initial response to the information about the accident.
When I was studying this week, I was in the Book of Mormon, and one of the people who had recorded stuff briefly in the book of Jarom (it might have been Omni, I can't remember) mentioned that if anyone wanted to know the more part of the history of the wars of his people they would be able to search the large plates of Nephi. It made me think of how cool it would be to have that record to read as well, but too bad we can't! It would make a cool movie!
Elder Fisher drew a picture of a joke about Pontius Pilate. Then had Elder Brown's sister Katrina color it.
I love you all, and I am glad you are all doing well! Keep on being great!
