The past week

Sorry you didn't get my email from last says I sent it to all you wonderful people but apparently not.....I don't know what happened there but I really think you should read it...or at least the last part of it....lets just say there is a hilarious story you don't want to miss!(:
SO this week has been down right wonderful!
I went on my first exchange(when you switch companions with another companionship) and I was with the Sister Training Leader, Sister Conlogue! She is seriously amazing and I learned so much from her! It was really nice to see how other people do things like talking to people....I know that sounds weird but we get set in our ways and its nice to see how others casually work the Book of Mormon into conversation! She is very spiritual and aware of others and she really inspired me to be better at that!
Not a lot other than that happened this week...other than the fact that this one man told that he, "doesn't do Jesus on the streets" after which I replied with, "how about in your home!?!" and that was still a solid that was sad.
Oh! This week we decided to follow a prompting Sister Reimert has had for the past few tract down St. Aubin Dr in Dawley Bank. So we did it and guess what! We found this amazing man! His name is James and he is SO prepared! He has a boss from Utah that has really opened his eyes to how wonderful Christ is so when we knocked he was like, "yeah Ive actually really been wanting to learn more" and then when we went to teach him I took the role of  playing with his two sweet sons, Louis and Luca, so that James could actually listen to Sister Reimert who taught him about how Christ has restored his teachings to the earth today! He asked brilliant questions and he is going to come to church this week and he asked us for a return appointment! We are so excited to teach him!
As we go about preaching the gospel and the love that God has for each of His children, I can feel that love that He has for each of us. He is so aware of us! We have been sent to this earth so that we can learn and grow but He wants us to find our way back home!
I just want to end this email with my firm conviction that I know that Heavenly Father is our literal father. He loves us so dearly. As I study the scriptures and pray I can feel my mind being enlightened and I can feel myself strengthened! I would encourage each of you, whether you believe or not to read the Book of Mormon! Just give it a try. Honestly, what could you lose by reading it? I promise that if you read the introduction to it and you pray with the desire to know whether it truly is God's word that you will come to the knowledge that it is true. That Joseph Smith was a true prophet of the Lord and that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every single one of us. I know it! I love being a missionary and I love the people here in Telford, England! (Still cant believe Im in England)!
I love you all so much and am grateful for each of your examples to me!
Alma 32: 21-22
21 And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.
 22 And now, behold, I say unto you, and I would that ye should remember, that God is merciful unto all who believe on his name; therefore he desireth, in the first place, that ye should believe, yea, even on his word.
So be like the kid from the Polar Express and just believe!!!
Have a wonderful week!

Sister Cummins!
