This week went by very quickly! On Tuesday we had district meeting and then exchanged with the Zone Leaders. I worked with Elder Herrod in Welling for the day, and a lot of Wednesday as well. It was a good exchange, but ended up being quite a weird one. We were asked by the bishop to help out a group of people set up and take down stuff for their presentation that they were doing for those with special needs. It was great to be able to help them, and to watch Elder Herrod touch others hearts by playing the piano after the activity as they had the lunch. One of the songs he played is one that he wrote in his dream.....Literally in his dream!! He dreamed of a girl (of course) and in his dream, he told her he wrote a song for her. He sat down and played it for her, and then when he woke up in the morning, he was like that sounded so good! He was playing piano later on in the day, and his hands just kinda started playing something he didn't know, and he began to recognize the tune. It was the song from his dream! Crazy right. It sounds super good to! I took a video, and although it doesn't sound too great on there, I will try and upload it if I can. Anyway, the group was very grateful to us, and it was a good experience for us as well. But as it took much of our time, it was a bit out of the ordinary for an exchange. I still learned a lot though, and am thankful for the experiences we had.
Then Thursday I went on exchange with Elder Hafen in our area, and we had a very good day. Elder Hafen is a hard worker, and knows why he is out here. It was great to learn from him, and to be able to discuss and establish goals together at the end of the exchange.

Then, I got sick, food poisoning or something and threw up 6 times on Friday night, got virtually no sleep and was really achy all day Saturday. Don't remember what I was laughing at, but it hurt. I am still not feeling 100%, but should be able to work today without a problem. We stayed in nearly all of Saturday and took it a bit easy Sunday..
I am excited for the upcoming transfer, I am sure it will be full of experiences. We, as a mission (with London Mission) are having a visit by Elder Cook on the 25 of November! Don't know anything of moves yet, unsure why.
I love you all so much! Hope you have a glorious week, full of excitement, earthquakes and other signs of the 2nd coming! You guys are great! Not many pictures this time, just a funny key ring, and some cool Halloween starbursts.
