27/06/16 - Hydroplaning

Last week was very rainy, but we have seen blessings from the Lord it
may not have been from driving through puddles though (there are so
many here...)We are currently teaching an American family that
referred themselves online. The mum has a close friend that is Mormon
and the father knows a lot of Mormons in the military. They are
baptist and have so many deep questions. They just don't like digging
at the surface of things. They are making plans to come to church with
us this Sunday and it will be the first time for the husband. We feel
very confident they will get the answers they need.

We went tracting for a few hours and were struggling to find someone
to teach. We had the Cambridge Elders pray for us over the phone and
we found Gemma, a mum with 4 kids! We were happy to feel the spirit
that as others pray for us it helps to build the faith to find those
who will listen.


Love,

Elder Chew

p/s The military families are very kind to us!

14/06/16 - Moved again to Bury St. Edmonds?!?!

Afternoon everyone,

We had move calls yesterday and President said I have a new assignment to go to Bury St. Edmonds (Ipswich stake) to be with Elder Dalley. I was pretty surprised as I thought I would be staying as I've only been in St. Albans for 5 weeks! Elder Silva my last companion will be replacing me here.

St. Albans is a wonderful place and recently we found a few new investigators to start teaching. I'm sure Elder Silva will do well finding Spanish and Portuguese people to teach too. We went to the London Temple last week, because Elder Alvey will be going home this week. It was truly amazing! It has almost been 2 years since I went to the temple so we were learning a lot. We participated in initiatories, endowments and sealings for the whole day. I'm so thankful that we have these truths restored to us. The temple is one of the best places to build your testimony of Jesus Christ and his gospel.


Love, 

Elder Chew

30/05/16 - Harlow stake blitz

Hi!

Last week went very quickly! We went to London for our exchange and we
visited the Borough market! It was very busy and there was so much
food (look at the picture of the fruit and veg).

On Saturday the whole zone (7 companionships) went to Harlow to join
in with the members in doing missionary work. The Stake is doing a
one-on-one program to help boost the missionary efforts in each area.
All the missionaries were on splits with the Harlow ward and with
members of the stake presidency and high council. There was a strong
spirit there and a lot of good work was done. We feel that it really
helped the members to get more excited about missionary service.
Harlow received many new referrals and we're optimistic about their
week.

Elder Poole and I have been exhausted lately. We have seen that the
Lord is blessing us with more people to teach. One of them is Sean,
he's a brother of one of the sisters in the ward. He has lost a lot
and has a strong desire to change! He is doing very well and has cut
down his smoking from 20 to 4 a day! It is amazing to see what a truly
humble heart with real intent can do. We will be praying for more
people like this to teach.


Love,

Elder Chew
