Day 19: My first p-day in the field!!! I got to email all of you lovely people!!! I also got to watch Disney movies at the chapel, wear pants, and spend time with a bunch of other missionaries from around the zone. It was super weird watching the end of Princess and the Frog, Brother Bear, and start of Cars 2.... I did it while setting up my iPad. We also did our grocery shopping, cleaning, and all that other good stuff we are meant to do.

Day 21: Happy Birthday Devynne! I had my first zone meeting and exchange today! It was fun. The Sister Training Leader in my area is Sister Barry, who is companions with Sister Koepf! Sister Barry was great. (Yes, we were Sisters Barry and Barret for the day) She is so sweet. We had a lesson with this girl named A... Who had some pretty difficult questions for us. It was really interesting. We also met with another one of her investigators by the name of E who is pretty cool. In general, it was a lot of fun to be with those other sisters.

Day 23: Okay, so whoever has told me it rains all the time in England is a liar. It has barely rained since I have been here. We had like one day over a week ago where it really rained. I am waiting for the rain, we have just had lovely sunny days. I finally saw "Meet The Mormons" for the first time. We had a viewing where we and other missionaries invited investigators to come see it with us. I am pretty sure that each companionship had two people with them. We had A and C with us, so that was good. The film was better than I had anticipated, which was also good. Both of our investigators also really liked it as well.
Day 24: We gave service today! We helped some friends of a member who used to be investigators. We helped them move. They really appreciated it and even said that they would call us sometime to have us over for dinner, so that was awesome. Also, it felt so weird walking around in pants. When we had put our pants and jackets on, one of the first things Sister Wood said to me was, "Sister Barret, you have really long legs!" Um, okay, thanks... Just funny how different people look when all you see them wearing is a skirt everyday! Since being here, I have decided that just about every British person can ride a bike really well and also play football (soccer) really well. Every single person who lives here. It is pretty great.

I think one of my favourite parts about being a missionary is when I bear testimony of something and then looking at the listener, looking at their face. You can just tell when they are feeling the Spirit and they appreciate what you have to say. It is a pretty good feeling.
I love you all!!!
