Today was my last p-day. Can you believe how fast the time has flown by? Some members brought us down to Plymouth to see the place where the Mayflower set sail from. It reminded me of Boston. I am looking forward to seeing Boston again soon.
I'll post more after I get home about some of the things that I have learned on my mission. I am speaking in the Worcester chapel at 12:30pm on the 23rd of November.

Everyone is invited! Please come.
The address is:
67 Chester Street
Worcester, MA

Plymouth Harbor
The Mayflower's passenger list

There are plaques commemorating the ships that landed in both New England and New Zealand, so my companion and I each had our pictures taken with our own plaque.

 In England everyone celebrates Guy Fawkes Day on the 5th of November. The celebration typically includes fireworks, sparklers, and a bonfire. Some members invited us to join them for their celebration, and we all had a really fun time!

Although we didn't go trick-or-treating. We celebrated Halloween last week by carving pumpkins. I wanted to use mine as a tool for proselyting, hence the carving on it. Although it was too heavy to carry around, it was still really fun. There are so many fun and exciting ways to share the gospel. We have been focusing this week on finding new people to teach. Every companionship has been encouraged to try some "creative finding" ideas.
How can you share what you believe in a way that is creative and exciting?



 The Senior Couple serving in Newton Abbot is great! They like to take us out with them on p-days to go exploring the little villages nearby. Here are some pictures we took in the Lustliegh Villlage.

 My companion celebrated her 20th birthday last week! I tried to make sure that it was a memorable one. She had a lovely birthday breakfast, and a caterpillar cake. I would consider her quite spoiled.
