Trying week

this week has been really trying, alot of opposition and rejection. but it is their choice to hear what we have to share. yesterday was my first exchange. it wasnt a real official exchange. there was a leadership meeting in the Reading chapel, and since my companion is a district leader and i am not his assistant we had to exchange. so it was not official cuz we didnt plan it very well. but we had fun. we did alot of work. there was alot of opposition yesterday. it kinda got to me. but then we started to teach with the spirit and it made our day soooo much better. then we exchanged back and elder simmons and i found this less active jehovah witness family that are looking for another church. it was a miracle. there arent too many investigators that are solid. we only have one baptism date,
today is my first official exchange. it is with the zone leaders that are in woodley, the other area in reading. i will be going with elder gardner from Woverhampton, England. he is sooo amazing as a missionary. this whole week is exchanges. tomorrow we will exchange back and then friday we exchange with the other elders in our district from Oxford. and all three exchanges i am staying here in reading as the senior companion. yesterday was tough cuz all our appointments turned out to be flogged. i hope today is better. 
sunday we were going to knock on this street but we felt like we should start to head down another road. we started walking and we saw this Chinese family. we stopped them and started to talk to them. it turns out that they are from Thailand and just moved a month ago. they have two little kids. she spoke good English and the father spoke some english. it was so amazing. we had stake conference sunday. it was a broadcast from salt lake. president monson spoke to us with Elder L. Tom Perry, Barbara Thompson, elder Kearing (i think thats how you spell his name). it was so amazing. we had an investigator with us and he had alot of questions after so we sat down with him and started to teach him. he had good questions. really heartfelt questions. 
i know this church is true. we are children of god and he loves us. As we take the name of jesus Christ we become his children too. he loves us just like the Father Does. he willingly gave up his life for us and because of that we have the opportunity to live with our families forever and also to live with the family of God, especially in his presence. Everyone is God's children but are we treating them like god would treat them. look in Acts 9:15. each person we see could change. thats whats so glorious about this gospel and especially the book of mormon. It has the power to change lives.i love you guys very much and i hope you guys are well.
