Missing Grimsby:
"The new area in Doncaster is really big, the area is so huge, and I liked the smaller area of Grimsby better. I haven't had fish and chips here yet, but I have been craving them so badly, and I want some so bad, but everyone says Grimsby is the best place to get them."

The Fun Side:
"We went to visit this less active family named the Barber's. They had this snake and it was feeding time and guess who got to feed the snake......... ME!!!!!!!!!! I was so scared at first the snake was going to bite my finger, so I used the clamps, and held the mouse really far away, and they told me to stop being a wimp and to get closer, so I slowly moved closer, and closer and then all of sudden the snake jumped up and took the mouse right from me. It was really scary but I did get a really good video of it, and we just had a good laugh."
"The flat is Doncaster is really nice, and guess what.............................we have a DRYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is going to make things so much nicer and easier and I am so excited!"
"I was joking around with the assistants, Elder Weggersen and Elder Hull, and they were like you need to come to Leeds so we can serve around you and all this other stuff. It was so much fun, and I just love joking around with everyone and having lots of fun. I think that is what I love about being a missionary, is how much fun I am having, but still working really hard at the same time, and it just makes everything fun."

"Doncaster is really good, and the ward is really great and funny. They had me fill out this paper with a little bit of information on it, and I put the home address on it and told them to write you a letter saying how great of a missionary I am, and then our ward mission leader, Brother Hall, was like or maybe we should tell them how big of a waster you are. I thought it was really funny, so I laughed."

"Some born again Christian let us into her house and we thought it was because she was interested, but when we got in there it was just like she wanted to bible bash with us, even though it was really tempting to want to bible bash with her, we didn't do it, and we talked about Joseph Smith with her, and tried to teach her a little bit of the first discussion, and then we asked her if she was interested and she said she was, so we will have to see how things go with that matter."

Teaching from President Lindley:
"We had a specialized training, and Presidnet Lindley came and talked to us about some stuff. It was really good, and I learned a lot. He told us how he thinks we as missionaries are working really hard, but we need to work more smart, and better. Then we found out that right now, the England Leeds Mission is the highest baptizing mission in all of Europe, and that was really great to hear. But out of all the people we schedule for baptisms, only like 11% end up getting baptized and so he taught us ways on how we can improve that, and what we are going to do to make that number go up. It was really good, and I love learning new things."
