This Morning for excercise we went to the Beach (30 seconds away from where we live) and I did an activity called Crabbing, which includes turning over Rocks to find Crabs because they get caught in all the Rock pools, anyway take a look at where our flat is situated and be jealous.
It was 6:30- 7:00 in the morning, I think we are going to start going out for morning excerise more often.
Today before we e-mailed we also went to another Museum,it's called the house of Mannanan, it was fun! Here are just some more random pictures.
And a picture in that area, it's the West of the Isle of Man and it's and area called Peel, to get there driving was so intense, we were on these little roads which can only fit one car in but are supposed to be for two cars, it's like driving between two hedges which can only fit one car in but are supposed to fit two cars, and the scariest thing was, there was no speed limit! So I'm glad to be alive.
I got a Fillipino badge, well actually a couple, I have a magnetic Fillipino one and a Pocket one too!
Well, another exciting week has passed, really only the first week of the new transfer and great things continue to happen, I hope they have internet in Heaven because at this rate the Isle of Man will be translated.
At the Beginning of the week we were still in St. Helens and we got back to the Isle of man Thursday afternoon, so it sure is a lot of fun being on the Isle of Man, just so exclusive. The Weather has been great, as a missionary you really only have two things to go by in terms of weather, or at least in the Northwest of England and the Isle of Man, the two catagories are: Short-sleeved weather and Suit Jacket/ Coat weather. It sure is fun! It was so great to be back in St. Helens it was such a high for me, to go visit the ward, to see how your investigators have progressed and to see how the less- active members you worked with progress through the Gospel, It's a real joy to see them bounce to re-activation to the Temple.
Knowing that the Keys of Salvation have been turned we progress to Exaltation, think about that one!
We had a Tea appointment every night we were there, love them so much!
Zone conference on Tuesday was pretty fun too! Elder Sutton on are are just on a high aswell as a companionship, it is so fun!
When we got back to the Isle of Man it was like a different Time- Zone the Manx time zone, everything just becomes much more easy- going and relaxed and people drive slower, it reminded me of when I first came here, it was a real culture shock, but now I think that the Manx are just the most Amazingest people in the World. So, we taught a good amount, our investigator Teresa is still taking steps toward Baptism and we are just so excited for her.
A great success we were able to see is just the Balance and the effectiveness of how it was when we came back, we taught A LOT! I love teaching so... no complaints here! Our mission standard is about 20 lessons a week, we were only able to have 3.5 days back on the Isle of Man and during that time we were able to teach 14 lessons! and a lot of finding and setting up appointments! Life is good right now, I can't complain.
We are still teaching our Chinese investigator, and success this week comes from teaching a Phillipino man called Bryan, he is so great! he knows he needs to get Baptised and change, it will be exciting to teach him, I still have a vision of a Phillipino speaking ward on the North of the Island. Life is so good! I had a Phillipino dish this week aswell, it's nice to have some home food, we had a Mung bean stew type thing. Well, Church was good I was able to serve the members and play some Piano for them.
This Morning for excercise we went to the Beach (30 seconds away from where we live) and I did an activity called Crabbing, which includes turning over Rocks to find Crabs because they get caught in all the Rock pools (I'm sure my parents can attatch some Photos from the view from our Flat)
Anyhow, God be with you till we meet again.
