Good Times in Gorleston (plus Colchester, Norwich, and London)

Hello Hello,
On an exchange with Elder Call in Gorleston
            Great week this week. The weather has been absolutely lovely. It was like 18 degrees Celsius yesterday! It was brilliant.
            Had zone meeting at the beginning of the week. It was very uplifting. Good things were said, the spirit was felt. I love serving with the missionaries in this zone. We have a good time. I had an exchange in Gorleston this week, which was fun. We went finding by the beach most of the day because the weather was very nice. It was nice seeing the sea again. We met some very nice people and even found a family that was interested in learning more. I always like going to the little coastal towns in this zone. There are some good people there.
            We got a new car this week as well. Had to drive down to Colchester in Essex and sleep there for a night on Thursday night, and Friday we went the rest of the way into London and got the car. We did planning – organizing some things for our zone as we were down there as well.
            We had a great lesson with the Simbi’s this week. They were having some questions about the Book of Mormon, and during the lesson we really felt like we should just read some of it with them. We read 3 Nephi 11 and it was so powerful. We asked them how they would feel to be there when Jesus Christ appeared. And as they answered there was such a good spirit there. Power of the Book of Mormon! They are getting baptized on the 29th of this month.
            We are doing great. England is beautiful and we are having a good time.

Pip pip cheerio,
Elder Purdy
