Hey Mom we went hiking this P day and since I don’t have my Ipad I couldn’t email that much during all the bus rides, sorry. I loved General Conference and I was the one who got to perform Beth’s baptism. It was an amazing experience and I will have to tell you more about it when I get back home and I will email you alot more next week. The hike was really fun today. I got a good number of pics to send you. I miss you too Mom and Dad and I also love you so much please keep praying for me. I know your prayers help. I will get my Ipad next Sunday.
Love you tons bye
Mom and Dad,
I am so sorry for not emailing you on Monday. They got rid of P-day this week. We had transfers on Tuesday and I am in a new area Blackburn. I white-washed in and re-opened an area so we are literally starting over here. I don’t have much time today, we have to use our lunch and dinner time to email and shop. It’s been a crazy few days. I have my Ipad, but it won’t work for some reason, so I will keep trying to get it to work. Sorry again. I love you, tell Spencer congrats for me and I will be sure to email you on Monday more. I didn’t have a single chance to email you all or I would have,
I Love you Mom and Dad,
From Elder Maughan

Dear Mom and Dad,
I fell asleep on the bus and when I woke up my IPAD was gone. I feel badly about it and need to replace it. I know hard things happen, especially before a baptism.
But good news is Beth is going to be BAPTIZED!! I am so excited. She has had such a tough life but now the sorrow gets to be washed away and she can start anew. I don’t have much news besides that, we are working hard as usually we have a lot of investigators so hopefully we will see a second baptism this transfer or even a third. England is hard though– it’s tough when most of your day is just rejection and maybe only one or two people listen to you but that’s the name of the game, sifting the wheat from the tares.
umm lets see …. This last week was really just more missionary work. I’m sorry I need to keep a journal again. I have become pretty decent at door approches when knocking and also street contacting. It does drone on sometimes, but I will find ways to keep it interesting. The members here are great! The Bishop is helping us out a lot, The Sister missionaries here in Rhyl have always gotten all the attention and now since the ward has warmed up to me and also my companions, our relationship with this ward has made it so we are stealing some of the sisters tea appointments, I feel bad for them :). But, the excitement will wear off soon enough and the sisters will be getting all the tea appointments soon enough again! We were going to go to a fun Zone activity, but because I lost my Ipad I couldn’t go because then I wouldn’t have been able to email you and the mission president. I am hope you have fun at Dave and Emily’s home. I will be skyping you all soon for Mother’s day, I hope all can make it.
I am looking forward to this next week. I hope you have a wonderful week also, Thank you for all you do for me and for the money for the ipad. I love you to space and back a million times also.

MOM and DAD,
Sorry it’s a short email this week–we had to go to a specific store for
my companion, just this week though. It took us a while to get there
and back. I think I already sent you most of this email just making
So the only thing I could really talk about this week that’s new is
being exactly obedient. Our mission president has told us that if we
make sure our morning and night schedules are perfect we will see the
blessings and so far that’s been working, I was never disobedient but
sometimes I would be not studying my hardest or getting out of bed a
minute late, but now I’m trying my hardest to be exact. The time is
flying but also I do feel like I am starting to be more a veteran. In
the next three transfers we will lose a lot of our senior
missionaries, most of whom are zone leaders. About fifty missionaries
will be leaving, mostly elders, and over a few transfers forty new
missionaries will be coming in and only nine of them are elders. So far
the mission is doing better even though it has a lot less missionaries
It is exciting that Beth stopped smoking this Sunday and she has a few days
to keep off the cigs, then it should be smoothish sailing towards
baptism. Pray for her. She has had a lot of help from this ward which
has helped her feel more at home here.
We have decided to start working with less active members. Many of
them are part-member families so we hope to bring them all to church.
It’s sad because many of these les- actives know they need to come back
and almost all of them still have a testimony of the Book Of Mormon–
they just have some concern that we need to resolve.
I’m glad to hear that Caleb (Jacob’s good friend) gave a great farewell talk. Tell Connor
that he’s the man for me.
Thats great that you will be able to visit Em and Dave. When is
Mother’s Day this year? Sorry , I was thrown off since the English
Mother’s Day is on a diffrent day, will everyone be able to make it to
Love you mom and dad. Thank you so much,
From Elder Maughan
