May 8th

Hello family and friends another week gone by. It all seems to be going very fast.

On monday we had p-day and then went to the Barnes for FHE with a less active named stephen who we have been working with for a bit so it was good to see him getting out and doing stuff. He used to be big on the drugs so he is a bit slow because of it.

Tuesday we went out to help a lady who is old and has health problems.  We mowed her lawn and did some garden work. They have electirc mowers over here.  I think they are rubbish but people over here like them. Then we went out to Tewkesbury and did FHE with the Goddard Family. They are so cool the kids love us. They are a bit crazy, but I love them.

Wesnesday we had District meeting.  It was alright this one I enjoyed it. On the way back we had some bike issues. My tire ripped and Webber got a flat, so we had to walk around for the rest of the day. Crazy thing happened, because of the bike problems we changed our plans and we had a lesson with a polish man we met a few weeks ago. He tells us to come in and brings his girlfriend and her sister over to hear us. He had lessons in Poland and so we have 3 new people to teach now. After that we went to another lesson and I messed up so bad. The lesson was just crap. The lady didn't really care.  She just let us in because she felt bad for us. But I messed up on the lesson so badly. I guess you can never know the lessons too well.

 Thursday was just a mess kind of a funny day. So we get this call from a member lady in Bidford which is about 8 miles away. She calls us saying her kid is locked out and we need to get the key from her and let her kid in. So we did that and we took the bus up and it just kinda messed everything up because we couldn't fix the bikes up. When we got back we both crashed and took a nap. We then went out and Elder Webber got sick. He had a really bad head ache so we went back to the flat.  He slept I did some work in the area book and then we went to seminary and young mens and young womans. They did a "where is wally thing". So we had to find the branch president somewhere is Evesham. It was alot of fun. So that picture of the man in glasses and a red hat is the branch president. And elder webber and I found him first, That was pretty sweet because I was talking trash to everyone in the ward how I was going to find him. 

Friday we got the bikes fixed and did weekly planning. We did some work in the Evesham area then had to go out to find this less active who lived in the middle of nowhere. On the way over we found this old tower. So that's where the pictures came from. We never found the lady but maybe some other day we will. Later we had dinner at a less active, part member family that we had been working with.

Saturday we went to Tewkesbury and did some work, came back and Elder Webber was sick again so we didn't go back out. It was a pretty short day.

Sunday we had church and a less active showed up and brought her cousin who is investigating the church! I was shocked to see her. I thought she would take alot more work to come. After we had a lesson with a less active who is making alot of progress.  We plan to see him at church on sunday and we made contact with Angie.  She is doing alot better and says she will be at church on sunday.

Monday was a bank holiday so we couldn't email. We had a zone p-day in Cheltenham and we played volley ball and all kinds of sports.  It was alot of fun. Then had a another good lesson with the less active, part member family we are working with and the dad sat in on the lesson. That was a huge blessing!

Tuesday we went to Hereford and did a work over with them.  We helped them out alot and then we got flogged by the polish man, but it was still a good day.

Well thats my week hope you all had a good one as well thanks for all the emails love you all,
Elder Doty
