Headed to Billingham!!!!!

My loves!
This week has flown by, but what's new? Transfer calls were last night and tomorrow I am headed up to Billingham! It's going to be an adventure but I know that's exactly where Heavenly Father needs me. And good news I will be serving near Sister Blair for her last transfer! Heavenly Father knows I need her. 

I am so thankful for this time I have been able to serve in Hull. I am so thankful for all I have learned and experienced here. I have really been able to learn to see the Lord's hand each day. There are so many amazing people I have been able to serve with and get to know that I will miss dearly. Hull will always have a special place in my heart! And so will Sister Melgarejo! Ahh we are sad to be apart but we will be friends forever :) it has been such a blessing to see her progress as a missionary! I have learned so much from her. Also I didn't think it could get colder, but this week has been the coldest yet. I have literally worn all my layers and now I get to go to the north where it will be colder! Pray for sun in England please :) 

We met with a former from about 10 years ago this week and it was such an amazing lesson! It was so cool to see how prepared he was and a lot of it was because of the missionaries that taught him so long ago. When we meet with people once or just talk to them on the street we get to plant that first seed. Sadly, he is moving to London next week but we will refer him to the missionaries there! 

Hahaha so we had a lesson with this guy this week and we met him at the bus station and then we're going to take the bus to the missionary home. We just started talking on the bus and he started asking more about the Book of Mormon and what makes our  church different. So we explained to him a little about it and he got up and said, "this is not for me" and walked off the bus. It was quite hilarious and we just looked at each other and laughed. Bless him. 

 Well I am forever grateful for this mission I am serving. I know that this is what Heavenly Father wants me to be doing and I am thankful for all I am learning about the gospel and what really matters in life. It's hard, but it's so worth it. 
I hope you all make it a great week!
Love, Sister Stevens
