week 37

One of our investigators said she would come to church, but then she wouldn't pick up our calls and she didn't come to church and we havent heard from her since saturday :(  Hard when that happens but there's agency for you.  It stinks sometimes hahaha.   We hope to see her soon, that would be really cool!
As far as our other investigator goes, she keeps setting up appointments and then flogging us.  I'm not too sure what's going on, but I really just want to teach her.  I haven't taught her since I've been here and I've only seen her 3 times.  
The kid we met on the bus is good, we met with him and his friends and gave them all Books of Mormon.  He is reading and I think he is really enjoying it!  I'm excited for the future with him!  We have some amazing things happening in our area!
We have a dinner appointment tonight, tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.  It will be good.  They do a good job at feeding us.  The members are alll scattered around.  It is good though.  There are members who have been in this branch for over 40 years and there are recent converts, move ins, all sorts of people.  It's a good branch and they are getting a building!  Its soo cool to see, and its the talk of the town so publicity is through the roof.  You drive right past it on the main road, so everyone sees it!
Conference this weekend!  We will go up Saturday to NewCastle to watch the Priesthood session.  Then on Sunday we are thinking that there is a family in the branch who have 4 kids.  The two older boys are married and have families so that makes about 15 people or so.  We are probably going to go over to their place on Sunday and everyone will be there.  We will watch conference have a BBQ in between the sessions and have a good ole time!  I'm excited for that because everyone in that family is not only way awesome but hilarious!!  So those are our plans.
Our flat is 3 stories.  You walk in and it's a tiny space for the bikes and supplies, then you walk up the stairs and it's the lounge and the kitchen.  The kitchen has two frigdes and two freezers lol and a washer and dryer!  Awesome!  The lounge has two chairs, our desks and a basketball hoop mounted on the wall so we play a game of horse or pig every now and again. lol its awesome!  Then you walk up the stairs and its Elder Lyman's changing room, the bathroom and the bedroom, my changing room, workout room.  It is a really nice flat!  I dont think anyone else lives around us.  its all businesses and shops.  We live right in town centre.  Its cool because on Friday before weekly planning we cross the street and there is a market with bread and cinnamon rolls and loads of baked goods!!  Its awesome! 
Man the weather here is amazing, it is for sure spring time.  The sun is out and the grass is green.  Short sleeves from here on out.  It is nice when it is nice weather because people are happier and more willing to stop and chat with you.

We had mission football the other day.  It was good!  Our team Mythyr Madness got 2nd place!  We were highly out numbered but still did good!  
Things are going well here in Milford.  Good weather, a couple of investigators, a good branch, what more can you ask for!
