Wagwan Wagwan

            Wagwan!!!! (Jamaican for "what is going on?”)
            Wagwan is the word of the day, as Elder Jensen and I have been with a member Jamaican family this week a lot.
            How are you all doing?  Hope all is well.
            Sittingbourne TANKED last week! We had 18 lessons planned and set in order for last week, and we ended up with 3.  These things happen I guess, but we are looking forward to a much better week this week.
            First off, we did not really see Marina this week.  She cancelled on us and now her mother is in the hospital.  Hopefully everything will be all right there.  I think she is kinda done learning all about the gospel.  Her family said she is kind of bored learning about it so we really have to make our next lesson a good one.
            Going into London was good.  It was nice being back.  It is weird changing from being there once a week to being there once every six weeks, but at the same time it’s fun being in “outer darkness” because we are just out in the middle of farmland.  Kent is known for being “the garden of England” so I am excited for springtime to roll around. It will be a good frolic.
            Speaking of good times, there is a ward activity this Saturday which I am excited about.  The exact name is the Gillingham 2nd ward "Hoo-Ha" and I think it will be a Hoo-Ha to remember.  We have really been talking to members about bringing their non-member friends to this thing. And lots of them are, so I am excited to see where that goes.
            Thank you all for the birthday wishes. 
            God save the Queen.

Love you guys,
Elder Purdy
