January 30th—February 5th: Back Again Among the English

Right so I am now back in England!  
  This week has been pretty interesting. I am completely and totally lost though. I have no sense of direction here. I had kind of gotten used to the mountains as being a direction and also I am very used to the ocean as my direction as well but now they are both gone. No more coast for me. Burnley is a good sized collection of town/small cities. They are mostly just housing estates all around.  The flat that we are in is right in the centre of the town and so it makes getting around reasonably easy, which is nice. The Chapel is just a short walk away as well.   
   The ward here is pretty good sized—about 60-70 I would say.  Big difference from good ol' Colwyn haha.  We have an interesting teaching pool at the time being. The ones that I have met have very mixed potential.  We have a man that is dated for baptism but has a few things to fix still. Then the rest of our teaching pool here is mostly trying to convert us to whatever it is that they believe. We had some great chats with Jehovah's Witnesses. They have very different beliefs. I'm not to sure about this area yet, but I'm sure that I will find the reason for me to be here but it's not too obvious yet.  
   Elder Koh is from Spain but was originally born in Singapore. He came out the same time as me and he has been here with Elder Berretta for 6 months and so I am the definite stranger here. He is really, really quiet which is a big switch for me from Elder Cossa who was always quite animated.  Love ya lots!
