June 18th

This was our district P-day.  It was alot of fun!


June 16th

This was another good week. Did I tell you guys how much I love Wales?

This week I got to go on exchange into Cardiff. That place is sweet!  So many people and the weather has been off the charts amazing! So we have been doing loads of service and teaching our less actives and it's going very well.

We even got a member to come out finding with us for a day and we were able to find a 19 year old named Robin and we taught him. So things are picking up and are doing well.

We were also able to help out at the farm again.   So I got a picture of this chicken. (Found those shades at Primark...1£ great deal.)

Also I woke up one morning to find this "guest" in our flat. Turns out he had flown in the window so we had a fun time getting him out.  And yes, we are still in the flat next to the club.

Sorry for the short email but I'm off to Cardiff again for district P-day.

Miss you and love you

My family already knows this, but my sister Rachel had a baby girl this week. June 7th little baby Anberlyn came into the world. Very excited for her and for my family back home - miss you guys!!

This week just did loads of service for the members here. The weather has been getting better so we are getting better at our gardening skills.

This Sunday night we had a very powerful lesson with this less active family. I haven't had a lesson like that in a long time. We are trying to get them to quit smoking and the spirit was so strong they ended up pulling out all their smoking stuff, ripping them up and then burnt them all. I was in shock. They have come such a long way. I will try and get a photo with them this week

Not much really happened this week. I think the highlight was that lesson and becoming an uncle.
Miss you all and love you!

Shout out to my sister who should be having a baby girl this week! You go Rachel!!

This week was pretty fun. I'm enjoying my time here in Wales but I fear this might be my last few weeks in Bridgend.  I have loved this area and DO NOT wanna leave!!

We are teaching a few less actives and they are coming to church and doing well.  I think the ward seems happy with us. I ask everyone in the ward if we can do any kind of service, most just ask if we can help in their garden. We help the Smallmans every week with their garden.  They are awesome! They even let us use their weights...that's always a plus.

Miss and love you all!!
