Weekly Letter #48: September 8th, 2020

Hello all and welcome back to yet another week of Sister Pursglove's fun England adventures as a
missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ. What a wild world we live in.

Sorry for the couple of weeks when my updates weren't the best but life was ~crazy~ and so here we are now with lots of news!

YAYAYAY folks I am staying in Lancaster!! I have only been here for the one transfer (or 6 weeks) so I'm glad that I'm able to stay longer because I LOVE it here!!! Unfortunately, Sister Weyland is being moved down to Rhyl in Wales.

The good news is that I am getting a new companion (surprise) and I LOVE HER! Her name is Sister Walker and she's probably the most charitable and nicest and warmest person I've ever met. Since the first time I met her I've always wanted to be her companion. She is also a great cook so that's a major plus as well. I don't know if you can tell, but I'm SO PUMPED!!

Hahaha so I have 0 funny stories this week because unfortunately I had a migraine so for a good 70% of this week I was lying in a dark room with my eye mask on. Livin la vida.

GO WATCH THE WHY I BELIEVE DEVOTIONAL!!!!! Especially the last half with President and Sister Johnson’s testimonies!! They're amazing and I love them so much!!!

Also something I've been thinking a lot about (because I hit a year in 2 weeks) is how grateful I am for this experience. I'm so grateful I have been able to meet the people I have and to have been able to serve in the areas I've been in. Each person, each companion, and each area has had a direct impact and has taught me different lessons. Whether that be being in Oldham for 7 months, being in St. Helens for 1.5 months, being over 2 areas virtually, or being moved to Barrow and Lancaster while in lockdown, there have been so many life lessons! I love being a missionary (even when it sucks and I roll my eyes more often than not) and I wouldn't trade these experiences I've had for anything.

Love you all!!!
