Agents of Christ

To start the week off, last p-day I had two of Sister Kinney's recent
converts, Shah and Prageeth, come to surprise her in Ilford. We were
so secretive about it and she was so shocked and just burst into
tears. . . It was really sweet! So we spent the whole day with them
and had the time of our lives, it was so much fun!!
Another highlight of the week (there are so many!!) was Amy's
baptism!! It was so wonderful because she was able to be baptised with
her boyfriend and it was a really special day for them. I found a
guitar in the ward clerk's office and so I was able to play a musical
number at the baptism and sing with my companion and the elders! It
was so good to pick up a guitar and be able to play again.
We also gave a training in zone Conference this week about how to work
with members, we coached like 60 missionaries in front of President
and the AP's in central London. Good thing God qualifies the called;)
It was so spiritual and such a great experience! Zone Conference
always is.
We had two exchanges this week and I was able to be with Sister Garcia
from Mexico, and we had the funnest time ever! We all got to celebrate
the Fourth of July at our American members' house. It was so good to
eat hot dogs and be surrounded by American flags. And also American
accents. Our other exchange I was with Sister Kahn from Pakistan, she
is one of my most favourite people in all the land. She speaks Hindi
and so she was able to communicate with all of these people in my
blessed area Ilford which is basically India. So believe me, I was in
Heaven just being immersed in the Hindi language.
Cool miracles!! Me and Sister Kahn went out to visit a referral that
lives super far away and so we had to demonstrate a lot of faith but
it was so worth it because this guy had apparently visited the Hyde
Park Visitors' Center and told everyone he wanted him and his daughter
to be baptised. So we head out and end up meeting our referral's dad.
He was this awesome old man who loves Jesus Christ and was super
interested in the Book of Mormon. Elvis is his hero. He's cool, I love
him, and we are going back to teach him this week.
Sister Kahn and I went to see yet another referral and this time their
dad was he only one home too. Another really cool (slightly less cool
than the first old man) but we shared more of our message with him and
he felt the spirit so strong. It was so cool that God led us to people
who we didn't plan on meeting, but who really needed us nonetheless.
We had an investigator who came into church and we gave him a chapel
tour. He has seen missionaries before and calls us agents of Christ,
he thought we were like some secret group and it was so funny because
I had met him on the bus and he thought I was so open and nice and
that's what made him decide to come see what church was all about. So

I love this Gospel with my whole heart!
