Time Flies

Wow, two weeks have gone quickly by! Last Sunday, Linda played violin with two other violin players and a cellist accompanying Paul Cardall at a musical fireside. Monday, we met Alessandra's lovely parents in Amersham! They are delightful! We look forward to many more visits with them.

Some of our excursions included seeing Hamley's Toy Store and M&M World, tours of Buckingham Palace, Mews, and Queen's Gallery.

Saturday we stopped to see J. Paul in the queue for Yo Yo Ma's concert at Royal Albert. He played all the Bach Unaccompanied Cello suites! two hours and 45 minutes. It was epic. The crowd went wild and called him back again and again for bows.

Our shifts at the Visitors' Centre are different each day. We love to answer questions and invite people to learn more. There are tender mercies often. The other day we were searching for a Book of Mormon in Persian. Couldn't find it anywhere. Kept searching and just as the man left the building, there it was in the sister's hand. She ran out the door and was able to give it to him.

Elder Williams was speaking with the bus driver who brought the new 25 new missionaries down from the Missionary Training Center in Preston, England. The bus driver was so impressed with these polite, genuine, kind young people. He just couldn't believe how they behaved. He was very complementary of such a fine group. Had never had such an experience like that before.
New Missionaries and their trainers with Pres. and Sister Stevens
Our new VC Sister trainers gave great training about standards of excellence.

We love getting messages, instagram pictures, facebook posts, skype calls, and facetime from our precious family! Sunday we were able to just stare at Timothy and watch him drink a bottle and burp:) Now it is Tuesday, and yesterday, we saw Timothy and all his siblings and Dan and Wendy! Cedar and Parker and Hazel got to hang out together in Moab for Labor Day weekend!
Monday, Mission Conference, Awesome! Wow!
