Weekly Letter #60: February 1st, 2021

Hello hello hello!
Wow it feels like every week I apologize for not writing the week prior, so instead of keeping with that trend, I’m just going to skip past that.


Ready for the surprise of your life? We are still in lockdown!! We're coming up on our one-year anniversary and wow, what a year it's been. For those of you who may be a bit confused, England is in a national lockdown where it's now illegal to go into a grocery store with more than 1 person per household. That's the level where we are. This isn't the Utah lockdown where it seems like you're living a normal life. This is a legitimate lockdown. Feel free to send flowers or money or chocolate or something to help my companion and me celebrate.

Hahaha so remember how I said I was living in Manchester South? Yeah…that lasted for a week. A week into us living in Altrincham (al-treeng-um), President called us and told us we were moving back to Stretford, but in a different flat than we lived in before. So here we find ourselves in one of the weirdest (and probably the worst) flats I’ve ever lived in. It's a very lovely place with a lovely spider infestation in the kitchen and a lovely set of stairs that's steeper than a ladder.

Hello everyone. For a quick recap, here's a fast history lesson about the spiders that reside in the lovely country of England. A long time ago in a land far away (England), a substance was created and it was named Miraclegro. This substance was used to help plants and other living organisms grow to gargantuan sizes. One day, some mean gross spiders came across some Miraclegro that someone had left outside and they started drinking it. Not surprisingly, they grew to humongous sizes and began populating England and terrorizing the country. The end. I hate English spiders. They are not posh. They are not cute. They are soul-sucking demons, and you can quote me on that.

This week it was brought to my attention that I only have about 9 weeks left on my mission. How do I feel about that? Kind of weird, to be honest. However, we'll talk more about my thoughts about coming home as I get closer.

Life is good. I’m living the dream. The work moves forward. I love being a missionary and I love England. Feel free to write :)
