Email 12/07/09 - It's "Not Too Bad" English saying :)

Hi everyone!

First off thank you so much for all the prayers and the support. The Lord is giving us miracles and so many things are happening and it is so busy with missionary work here. Its CRAZY and I LOVE IT!
This month, we as a mission, are reading through Preach My Gospel so it is a lot of reading everyday. And also we have Zone Conference next week in London because the Area President is coming. We are way EXCITED!! it's like a 3 hour train ride, which is no fun though. But we will make it fun :)
This week Aisha has been progressing and loves being a member and bore her testimony in RS and Sacrament. It was wonderful to hear the feelings she had and how the gospel has changed her life. She has been through so much and I am so grateful to have made the decision to go on a mission and help her and others. Its wonderful. This time of year is the best. Everyone is so happy and says hi and the spirit of Christmas is for sure in the air!
This week we went to Halesworth which is 30 mins away from us. A member took us to see this family that we received their records from Idaho. We found out they were from the city right under Spokane, Washington and their kids live there. They are a less active family but we are hoping to help them out and get them active. They were way out into the country side where there were fields that never stopped and all so GREEN. It was beautiful!
Also we taught Seminary this week. That was so much fun to work with the youth and to see how strong they are. They learn so much and we taught later in the day so they were more awake. It was so much fun. I never thought I would like teaching. Ha. How things change when you are a missionary :)
We had Interviews with the president this week. I love that time. President Patch is called of God and gains such great inspiration for the mission. He was talking about how long Sister Shattuck and I have been together. I was telling him we have not been together that long. I think for sure one of us will be moving next moves. But at least we are together for Christmas and there is still so much to be done before one of us leaves. Its crazy but fun also! :)
We have a new investigator that was investigating last year sometime and has been able to figure a lot of her life and has been coming back to church and wants to get baptized. But we found out that she is homeless and needs to be stable before we baptize her. So we are going to help her find a place to live because she can't live at her fiends and mothers home due to government issues. So that is what we are working on but she is wonderful and we are wishing for the best for her :)
So as you can tell the work is great and moving forward. I love you all and thanks for the letters and emails.
Love you!
Sister Olsen!
