New Views and Changes

July 29, 2013
On Tuesday we went on exchange with the District leader and I went to Evesham with Elder Dryden. It was so much fun, but we didn't get a whole lot of work done. We did get one other lesson taught, but that was about it. On Wednesday we switched back and on Thursday we had a day out in Malvern. Elder Harris' bike is nearly dead and has gotten to the point where it's unsafe to ride so we've probably walked an average of about 8 or 9 miles a day for the latter end of the week. Other than that not a whole lot has happened! Today the Nolan's are taking us to Gadfield Elm Chapel, which is the oldest LDS chapel in the world and to Raglan castle. So I'll take lots of pictures and send them all to you tonight. For now though, I don't have a whole lot of time and I need to go. Love you guys more than you know!

Not much happened this week because we've been spending most of our time setting up furniture and cleaning the new flat for our second team of missionaries! This is the first time Worcester ward has had a second team of missionaries in about 15 years. It just goes to show that the Lord blesses those who faithfully serve him. On Saturday we were teaching one of our investigators down by the river and a guy came up to us and starting throwing out a lot of anti-Mormon facts and bible scriptures. Now, I've never even read in the bible, but The Lord placed the words I should say into my heart and there wasn't a single falsehood that came out of that man's mouth that I didn't refute with a true principle of the gospel. After about 45 minutes of this guy doing all he could to tear us down, I shared with him the story of how the priesthood was lost and then restored through Joseph Smith, and he just sat there in silence for about 2 minutes straight, and left. The Lord qualifies us for the work! I'll know tonight whether or not I'm being transferred. I'll let you know. They take place on Wednesday. No new pictures this week, I'll send some more next week! Love you tons, Elder Sorensen

    That story about sharing principles of the gospel is really awesome; I love reading Casey's testimony.
