Three more letters to go! It’s gonna kinda be sad not to email you every week, but I guess then I’ll be with you so I won’t have to.
This week was really good, we had two exchanges, MLC, a doctors appointment, and a huge service project. On Tuesday night something in Sister Hall’s back just decided to snap, so she woke up Wednesday morning with like no movement except with extreme pain. So I ended up having to drive the whole rest of the week, which, shall we just say, was a lot. We drove to Leicester and back, to Peterborough and back THRICE, and then in a big round circle that took us two days, from Stamford to Birmingham, from Birmingham to Nottingham, to Derby, to Stamford. I know those places mean nothing to anyone, but they just demonstrate how wacko our week was. Don’t ask how my back was by the end of it.
I also got to go running with Sister James, a Sister from Wells, NV, on p-day and that ended up being 4 1/2 miles, so I was a little tight all week.
MCL was really good, we talked a lot about Facebook and how we can use it to further the work. The hall we were holding the meeting in was undergoing renovations so there was no carpet on the floor, so everything echoed. But the closing hymn was 117, Come Unto Jesus, and it sounded beautiful. I feel the Spirit so much during hymns.
On Saturday was Derby Poppy Day, so the whole Nottingham Zone went to Derby to help sell Poppy’s for the Royal a British Legion from 8:30am to 5:00pm around Derby city Centre. Most of us had to move closer to Derby the night before the stay with another companionship since we had to be there so early in the morning, and Derby is right on the edge of the mission. At one point we ended up with all the sisters in the zone in the Derby sisters flat, and wow was that an adventure. TWELVE SISTERS in ONE tiny flat. But we were so extremely tired at the end of that day, and we still had to drive two hours back to our area afterward. It was so hard to stay awake!!!!! We finally got home at 9:00 Saturday night and crashed for the night. Haha, we ended up sleeping on the living room floor. We left the mattresses out after our exchange that week and it was easier than climbing into bed.
I just want to let you all know how much I love this Gospel and how much I love being a missionary. It’s such a privilege to be able to serve Jesus Christ and bring His Gospel to others. Living the Gospel brings me so much joy and pleasure.
I love you all so much!
Sister Wadsworth ❤️
