Hey there!
So I am officially in my 3rd transfer and I am not a new missionary anymore!!! It feels weird to know that I have been out here for a little over 3 months! Yesterday (Nov. 21) was transfer and guess what? I AM STILL IN WHITEFIELD!!!! YIPPEE!!!!!!! I have a new companion named Elder Kuchar from Berlin, Germany! He has been out in the field for 18 months and he is really good! So many things are happening in our area: We have a progressing investigator named Keith whose from the Whitefield area and he is dated for Nov. 30th which is SO GOOD!!!!!! He is so golden and he is keeping his commitments so far! I will keep you posted on what is going on with him. So sad thing about England is that they don't celebrate Thanksgiving!!!! The thing that makes up for it is that we have a Temple Zone Conference and during that, we will have a Multi Zone Feast which is the substitute for Thanksgiving!!! I won't write too much for today but next Monday I will. Here is my mailing address that you can mail letters to:

Hey there!
Before I begin I just wanted to let you all know that when you send letters to the mission address, I don't get to get those letters till I have Zone Conference (which is two weeks away) so if you sent something don't think I'm ignoring you lol!
So last week was just amazing! In the EMM we had a fast, find and feast week which is so amazing! This is what happened at it:

So me and Elder Sutton went out for the 10am-12pm consecrated finding. We were walking and trying to find people to talk to and a few minutes in we didn't find anyone. Then we were walking near the fitness center we always pass and we stopped a young man named Jason. We started talking to him and he told us a little bit about himself. We asked him if he ever heard about the Church before. He said that he heard of some famous rugby players who went on missions for the Church and how big of an example they were to him. We asked him if we could share a message with him and he accepted it! He was off to catch the bus and he wanted us to come with him to the bus stop. Whilst walking, we taught him about the Restoration. When we got to the bus stop I gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon. We then set up a time to meet with him. In the midst of doing that, the bus came and that was his bus. We told him we would go on the bus with him. We got on the bus and set up the appointment. Elder Sutton got the impression to ask him to be baptized and HE ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!! We then hopped off the bus and then said a prayer with him on the spot! We then parted ways.
After that prayer, I started to shed tears of gratitude because of the miracle and the tender mercy that was bestowed upon us!
I know that the Lord is mindful of His missionaries and that this is His work. I know that He lives and that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is here on the Earth again! I say this in His name, even Jesus Christ, Amen!
Thank you for your love and your prayers for me. I love you all very much! Keep smiling!
With Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor

to me
Hey there!
Before I begin I just wanted to let those who have written me I will write you all today! To my friend Sheyla: I got your letter last Monday after P-Day ended so today I will be writing you back! Life as a missionary is constant go, go, go and no stop, stop, stop LOL!
So I have noticed that I haven't told you all about the culture here in England! The letters I get you all ask how the culture is over here compared to the culture in the United States. Well I will tell you! England, just like the US, is very diverse! There are people from the Middle East, The Czech Republic, Africa, China, Vietnam, you name it! The common English dish is usually roast dinner and the also a dish adapted from India which is called Curry. Mexican food in the States is like Indian food in the UK. Curry is so good and I made some a few days ago! The streets in Great Britain are so narrow and hard to get around at times. I am telling you, if you try to drive here you will be deathly afraid for your life driving. Also how they say "Thank You" in Great Britain is the word "Cheers" which sounds so cool when you say it in a British accent (Try it!). Over here they really keep an eye on the things going on in the US! They pay alot of attention also to American politics which is very interesting! Great Britain is a very interesting place!
I have been reading in the Doctrine & Covenants alot lately in my personal study! The other day I read on the Priesthood in Section 107 I believe. The last two verses were very clear and powerful! If you have time to read 100 verses, read Section 107 in D&C on the Priesthood! It made me realize how important God's Priesthood truly is and how great of a privilege it to hold it!
Well hope all is well with you all! Keep smiling and remember that I love you all!
Much Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor
