I cant believe Iam on my mission its crazy! i met my companion she is from australia really nice she is quiet but a good teacher! we have a nice flat( apartment thats what they call them over here) i miss everyone so much ! i am having a hard timebecause at how much i miss you all like i cant say the word family with out starting to cry! :( i cant wait to see everyone again! ! Last night we went out finding/tracking and meeting new members we are in Chorley right now that’s our zone and there haven’t been sisters there in forever! So we "whitewashed” don’t know exactly what that means! I am learning the missionary lingo still! so anyways last night we went out said a prayer we always say a prayer before we leave first guy we come to was walking his bike back home and we stopped and talked to him he said he love messages about Jesus and told us where he lives and took a card from us! since I have been out here we always talk about miracles and that definitely was that was my first encounter of a real person and he didn’t spit, curse, or make any rude remarks at us... even though I know that will come it was nice not having that happen to me on the first day and first person! we then went I have no idea where, these towns are crazy they are so compacted together and the addresses are so awful to find anyways we were trying to go to a sisters house that just got baptized but hasn’t really been coming to church and somehow we managed to find her place (this was all at night too dark rainy and the wind was blowing) she wasn’t there but her mom said she would be in today! then we had an address for a members house we stopped there chatted and it wasn’t until the husband starts reading this info about missionaries and sister king asked him what his calling was, he was the stake president! We had no idea just looked at the map found an area and went for it! So last night was definitely a miracle! we were able to go and get some shopping done today and email so that was so nice! On our way to the library we had to catch a bus and take it to the town square so we had to bus contact! Once we got on sister king sat down by a lady but everyone else was sitting with someone so I sat behind a lady and started a conversation with her didn’t get to the religious conversation but it was good practice! We then came to the shopping square! EVERYONE SMOKES it stinks so bad over here! But we were walking and i'm thinking to myself okay I have to talk to everyone ya right its impossible lots of people some don’t give you the chance so I am still trying to figure out how to do that! Anyways we passed this old guy walking and I looked at him kept walking and all of a sudden I just had this feeling told my companion and went back and talked to him! he wasn’t interested at all but that was my first lesson on following the prompting of the spirit I have no idea why I felt like I should talk to him right when we started to talk about what we were doing he just walked off! I want to be able to follow those prompting no matter what and that was a good practice for me! Tonight we are going to meet the bishop and stop by some less active families houses! We will see how that goes my p days will regularly be on Mondays now! love adn miss you so much! until monday!!
