I’m anxiously awaiting your call. The number is fake though. Go to Mormon.org
instead. It’s a neat little website. It’s a lot more informative and helpful than Facebook or its counterparts and you will get a free book and exaltation… By the way if your here for me to actually talk about my week, don’t worry, your in the right place, I’m getting to that now. For those completely disinterested in my week I guess you can stop here. The exciting stuff is over.
Sitting here in an introspective mood, I realise that every week is the same. Doing the same stuff over and over tends to make ones life like that. Missionaries have about three options for what they can do. Find, teach and prepare. It’s not a bad life, it’s actually really awesome. And it’s not that repetition makes life boring but that it becomes less exciting to read about. There are only so many times you can make getting rejected exciting. You’ve heard about exchanges, teaching people, DA’s, etc. Hopefully it’s not old hat. I an case I shall still write! For I know of the great worth it can have. Just look at Nephi!
My blessed companion, the one and only Elder Butler has been a absolute star this week. I’ve had few times where I laughed so much. So he is a triplet and all three of them got their wisdom teeth out together back in good o’l Utah. They all also went under for the operation and as a result they were three very high children for a while. His mom sent a bunch of videos when they had it done and so we’ve been busting our guts laughing at them. I thought six needles was bad but man this was a whole other ballgame of embarrassment and oddities.
Together me and Elder Butler have also had the great opportunity to walk, and walk, and walk. We’re doing a lot of miles a day. The past two days we’ve had to travel and hour to an appointment by foot. The funny thing is that we’ve tried planning route by the busses here and google maps literally has told us the fastest way is to walk. It doesn’t even give us options for buses. We are finding pretty well right now but the people are very wish washy and in one moment are interested and the next not. It’s a frustrating cycle at times. We can only make your life better if we teach you!
Earlier last week we had an exchange over in Reading and I got to be with blessed Elder Burningham. He was in my MTC district and so it was fun to be with him again. He has grown leaps and bounds since the MTC day’s. He’s been in the same area now for the past 11 months and been a ZL the whole time. He’s super bold, dedicated, and a great example to me. We had a pretty cool miracle where we felt we should knock a few houses on a street at 8:30 in the evening which is pretty darn late for dark England. The third door we knocked we ran into a man who let us in (This is quite a rare occurrence) and so we taught him right there. At the end we said a kneeling prayer with him and it was powerful. He’s very firm in his faith but he has huge potential. It’s great that he has a faith, it’s great when anyone has a faith but I am so grateful for the Book of Mormon which can grow even the strongest of faiths. I wouldn’t try to convert JW’s, baptists, Methodists, etc if I didn’t have the Book of Mormon. It’s impossible to prove to someone that a certain interpretation of the bible is correct. That’s why we have the Book of Mormon, it becomes a fresh and clear documentation of what God hopes for us.
We had a cool time at a members just yesterday when we had a DA with them and our investigator. Their house was built in 1740 and looks gorgeous on the inside. It’s pretty crazy how old things are here in England. There are houses in my area that have been around for over 500 years. The DA was really tasty and even better, our investigator really enjoyed himself and learned a lot. It was our goal to beat into him the need to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I think we succeed. He’s doing well and we have high hopes for him.
It’s been a happy week and I hope it’s been happy for you as well. God bless!
The Story of Elder Palmer and Elder Palmer
So the world is incredibly small. My email as you all know is palmer.benjamin but many missionaries think that my email is Benjamin.palmer. So I’ve lost about a dozen emails over the course of my mission to this ghostly benjamin.palmer. I’ve missed out on important announcements, pictures, and probably professions of a secret love. Whatever the case, it’s been a bit annoying.
A few weeks ago this benjamin.palmer emailed an old companion of mine who had sent an important email to him rather than to me. The old companion then emailed me a screenshot of the awkward moment he had experienced. Chuckling I decided to write to this now known benjamin.palmer.
Upon writing him I learned he was serving in Canada. Sadly not the Calgary mission and as weird as that would be, something even weirder occurred. He is serving in eastern Canada and his companion happened to be from England. Not only from England however but Newbury in specific. This Elder Palmer was serving with and Elder from the ward I was serving in.
In the vast sea of 70000 missionaries I happened to connect with my email stealing doppelgänger and also an elder from a family I attended church with. It’s crazy!
