I am late getting this updated and have not posted for a couple of weeks since Collin has only been writing personal letters the last couple of week due to Bank Holidays and lack of access to computers. They go to a public library to use computers to write home. I am adding some pictures sent to us by a parent of one of the Sister missionaries he was serving with on the Isle of Wright. The picture of the baptism is the gentleman Collin had the opportunity to help baptised in a previous blog. The other person in the pictures who is not a missionary is the ward mission leader in the ward that Collin serves in.
Collin now has a new companion and he is from California. They seem to be getting along great and seem to be having good fortune in finding investigators
We have been in contact with a lady that Collin had the opportunity to teach in one of his areas and got great news that she was baptized on August 23rd. She is an amazing lady with an amazing story of faith. Another member that Collin had the opportunity to teach on the Isle of Wight and was baptized is coming to the US this month and we will have a chance to meet her and possibly go to the temple with her.We are excited for that! Here is what he said in his email
"We are starting to find people to teach and they seem pretty solid. Only this week will be able to tell! Also my convert I had on the Isle of Wight Pam. She will be going to Americas with her husband and part of their tour will be in Salt Lake. She wants to go to the temple with Elder Belnap's mom and my mom:)"
It is hard to believe Collin will be home in just 11 months. He has grown so much and can't wait to see how much more he will grow spiritually in the next 11 months!
They were trying to find the Hidden City on the Isle of Wight. They went to the wrong location and called this their Hidden City which is some random shack as he called it.
Collin is leaning over a cliff and the wind is blowing so hard it is holding him up
