Emi's Seventy-Second Email! June 20, 2016

How many times can you get caught in the rain? As many times as you
forget your umbrella!!

Too many fab weeks. We had our "Welsh holiday" at the beginning of the
week with Garwean then we slept in Rhly to start our exchange with the
Sisters there. Such a posh flat! Beach front, massive, seriously a
vacation rental ah! We went to their district meeting in the morning,
it was seriously soooo funny. Plus 3 sets of sisters were there so it
was really productive! Then we started the real exchange. Wow was it a
flop for (Japanese from Caleb's mission) Sister Haruyama. Such a bad
example. We got stuck in literally the heaviest rain of my life. Like
I understand what showers are we took shelter and I had her
read the BOM to me for an hour haha then a member saved us!

Next day we went and visited LAs with the same member who saved us
yesterday! It was so powerful, so much better with members! Like
efficiency was up. Then we went to a meeting with the stake President and
our mission president. Our charity shop is a blast. A super sweet
member took us out to a nice restaurant with her two daughters, so

We met with Mollie and after a change of heart she committed to a
date!!!!!!!! Some of the stuff I shared with her about my difficulty
with commitment, especially with baptism kinda helped her out, stoked!
It made me feel so much more of my purpose here to personally help
people. We had some good street displays. Asking people if they are "forever
couples" all day haha. We even did a street display with a sister in
Wrexham, good times. Hopefully that family redated for baptism! Ah so
much to do.

Oh I never mentioned how our new zone leaders were my friends! Elder
McDowell from South Africa who was my district leader for 3 months in
Oldham, and Honorio from Brasil from my MTC group! Yay.
-I've been doing better with quitting biting my finger skin
-Members brought us so many sweets!
