Emi's Sixty-First Email! April 4, 2016

I've been really tired. Like all the time. Even when I don't feel
tired, we are sitting on the bus, and I fall asleep. It's sooo annoying.
I'm annoyed with myself, others, just annoyed with being annoyed! But
it's ok. It'll all be ok.

The temple was nice. Wish I could live there. I have a plan to go once
a week once I'm home. We hung out with the senior couples afterward and
some of their friends from the states so that was fun. Fhe. Never take
the temple for granted!

We had exchanges Tuesday and I was reunited with Sister Beard! It's
nice with multiple sisters around. Really helps you. Runcorn is an
interesting area.

Wednesday we came back and had tea at a members,
then had splits. Very successful.

We had interviews, they are just not a big deal to me at all. He told
me a while ago that I would train after this transfer and now that has
been confirmed...please please pray that I'm a good trainer. I don't
want this poor girl to go home because of my attitude.

Our flat got inspected. I have spent loads of time cleaning this
place. It's not perfect, but it's also years old, so there's only so
much you can do, especially with the lack of time we get to do stuff like that.
I have never felt so unChristlike my whole mission toward the person
checking our flat. I'm ashamed of my thoughts.

Please pray for the two girls meant to be baptised Saturday. Not
sure one will happen this week.

Conference, not by coincidence, is the one thing that got me out of my
slump the past two helped me learn loads and I got my
questions answered.

Our area has the biggest council estate in Europe haha
We met some vegans who weren't religious because it contradicted the
gospel..interesting perspectives. No point in arguing.

Top 4
1) Conference is the best thing ever
2) Last week with the so so so so sad they are going....
I love them! Last sleepovers...
3) Went to the chiropractor, wow that felt good! Finally got a
backpack as well. So much fashion
4) Did I mention I got an authentic Scottish kilt? Stoked

Also here's some more lingo I've noticed here:
Pack it in- shush up
Mingin- janky/nasty (that's actually from Oldham)
Gone pear shaped- things got messed up
Done to pots- up in shambles (not that I know what that really means either)
What you like?

I have been learning a lot. Learning can be painful. But I'm grateful
for the perspective of the gospel. I met some girls this week and all
I could do was bear testimony to these young girls who think their
lives are already over, counted for naught. I felt part of God's love
for them and only could pray in my heart that they would listen.

My word!! Jess is engaged!!! Congrats! And ya for Connor going to Brasil!!!
