Email 06/22/09 - Another week in London

Hello Everyone!
How are you all doing?
This week was just wonderful! We had a mini Zone Meeting with President Foulger and his wife to say good bye. They will be leaving the 1st of July and the new president Patch will be in. Crazy! And so we had testimony meetings and training. President Foulger is a powerful good man. We will miss him. So yeah we had a good week with meetings with the members. Sister Shah, the ward mission leaders wife (and Sara Ott's former companion) came out with us one day and we went on splits. I went with Sister Shah. It was weird because I was the only missionary there to lead. Usually I am being led but I was in charge. It was strange but also very good. We had a good time and met a lot of people. I also made pancakes one morning with home made maple syrup (that they don't have here.) It was so good. Ha ha it's crazy what you don't miss until you don't have it anymore.
Story of the week. Its of Jacqui again. She is amazing! We taught her a great lesson about the gospel and the spirit was so strong. She called us last night and told us that she woke up in the morning and the first thing she that came to her mind was to pray. She did and she said she never yelled at her kids. She was so positive. Her husband was so happy and she said it was the best day of her life. She has never been that happy and she knows its from applying the gospel in her life. She has had so much opposition and its been so so hard for her because she thinks she is going to lose all her friends and everything but she can't get over the fact that she is so so happy. She loves the feelings she is having. Its going to be a long up and down roller coaster for her but we continue to pray that she will be strong.
It so neat to see peoples lives change for the better. Also seeing Shola, the one we recently baptised still involved in the church and coming to church is so amazing to see. I know it is only with Heavenly Fathers help. I love it here. It been so much fun getting to know everyone from everywhere and helping them come unto Christ.
Thanks for all the support and love you have given me.
I love you all. When is Leslie getting married? and Melissa?

Much Love -
Sister Olsen!
