Amazing week! So the Olympics are in full swing and I’m loving it. We are getting to do some really cool things. Last Friday we (5 other missionaries and my self) were able to go down to south bank next to the London eye. We set up a table with posters and everything. 1 person would stay next to the table and talk to the people that came to the table and everyone else was just walking around talking to people. It was really cool. In under 2 hours we got close to a hundred emails. It was so cool just to be talking to people and than to look up and see like big Ben or the London Eye. I talked to people from all over the world. I think some of the coolest people I talked to were from Sri Lanka. It was just so cool to meet sooo many interesting people. The opening ceremony was that same night and we were aloud to watch part of it.
Wow this week has been so great!! So first of all we found out about the olympics and the part that we are going to be playing in it. So the Church has organized a booth that will be set up next to the London Eye, right on south bank. So starting this Friday I think, we are going to be going there in like shifts to run the booth. It will be every day from 10-7 everyday. All the missionaries in the whole zone are really excited! We will be in probably the busiest part of London next to one of the biggest tourist attractions in the UK. I really can’t wait!! Their will be millions of people there everyday. It’s really exciting. We might even have a I Pad so that we can be collecting emails right then and there and be able to send the email while we are talking to the people so that they recieve the email while or shortly after talking to us. I havn’t really talked about the email prograhm in the Mission. So the whole mission is really trying to get emails from everyone. Member and non members. The emails are really nice. They have just little messages on them and after a while one of the emails will go through the first lesson. Than some more little messages and than it will send the second lesson and so on. But we encourage members to do it too because than on the emails the members or whoever can LIKE it on facebook and it will post it to there walls. Than there friends can see and read and start getting those emails! The old and new mission President are pushing this very much. Which I agree this program can go a really long ways. They can track who and where opens the emails and they are already seeing it spread all over the world. It really cool. But yeah so when we go to the eye we are going to be trying our best to get emails.
Man this week has been incredible. So we had our baptism last saturday. Her name is Vivienne. She was a referal from a ward member. She came to some dance that the stake was putting on and she enjoyed the people and the environment that she wanted to see what church was like. So on the following Sunday she just walked up. We started teaching her and she was so ready for the gospel. We taught her the restoration and when we were done we asked if she had any question and her only question was how to become a member. Me and Elder Manga just started laughing a little. We countinued to teach her and my favorite was the plan of salvation. She asked how Jesus showed himself to prophets before he came to this earth so we must have been spirits before we got our bodies. She was confirmed a member and the spirit was really strong during that.
