A Solid Week in Kent

Ahoy out there,
            Ohhh, what a week.
            First off, I am turning 20, which just mental!
            And we had really good week this week.
            We tried giving Marina a baptismal date but she wanted to pray about it first.  You can tell she is feeling it better though, because she has been reading and praying. We read the Book of Mormon with her and the spirit was there so strongly.  We read Moroni 8 and it was good.  I am really excited to see her keep making these good decisions.
            We found two new people that we are teaching this week.  Both of them are from Poland. The first one’s name is Monica.  She is sooooo cool.  I am over the moon that we are the missionaries that get to teach her.  We stopped her in the street, and she didn't have time to talk so she gave us her address . . . but it was really only 70% of her address.  On Saturday an appointment cancelled so we tried to go find out where she lives, and miraculously we did.  We knocked and she let us in and we taught lesson one right there.  She has two kids, who are 7 and 5, I think.  She is a Catholic but is not that active.  Now she really wants to find out more.  She is so laid back and so nice and willing to listen.  She is wonderful.
            The other guy is Michael.  He has lots of religious knowledge and had some good questions when we met with him.  We gave him a Book of Mormon and he said “I think I will only get done with half of it by next week, is that OK?” and we were in shock. 
            Solid week.
            The Book of Mormon musical is in full force right now . . . and not only that but the church has bought out lots of the underground ads and billboards in London for  So it is an exciting time to be a missionary.   Unfortunately, we are in an area which we call “outer darkness” which means we are out of the loop as to what goes on in London right now.  In this zone we can’t go in to London because it’s far away, but we are this Thursday for a meeting, so I guess I will see this stuff first hand.
            Everything else is fine.  The weather is nice right now, things are good.  What else can I say?
            I’ve started to study the Bible a lot more, so that will be good.
            Hope you all are doing great.

Love you,
Elder Purdy
