Hey everyone,
Before I begin I just want to let Sheyla and Laura C. know that I got your emails and will write back on Monday coming up. Also LAURA CARDY: OH MY WORD!!!!!!! YOU GOT BAPTIZED! AH! MY HEART IS FILLED WITH JOY WITH THAT NEWS! Also I am still in Crewe! I am FINALLY serving with someone from Arizona named Elder Palmer! He is a great missionary.
So my mission is doing a fast and finding activity this week! We will fast on Good Friday and find for 5 hours on Saturday. As I have been preparing myself for the fast and finding days, I have loved reading the last weeks of the life of the Savior. I have been deeply moved by the events on 'Passover Thursday'. I was deeply touched by Luke 22:41-44 when the Savior was in the Garden of Getsamene. The part that pricked me in the heart was when Christ was in pain (and I quote v.43), "there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him." I could not help but weep whilst reading it. I felt times before and during my mission where the Lord saw me struggle and feel distressed and He was there to strengthen me. Oh how I love my Savior Jesus Christ and His perfect sacrifice.
I know that Jesus Christ lives! I know that He is the author of our salvation and the Great Mediator for us with the Father! He is the life and light of the world where if we turn to we can never go wrong!
Thank you all for the constant prayers in my behalf for I have truly felt them and have given me strength. I love you all very much and will have you all in my prayers. Continue to smile and thank God for sending His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins and was resurrected to show us that as we keep the commandments, that we too will be resurrected.
With Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor

Hey everyone!
Just to remind you: You can now email me if you like! My email address is So if you want you can email and I will try my best to respond!
So next week is transfers and this week is transfer planning! I am so nervous to hear what will happen to me! Every missionary panics about this week (and I bet some of you returned missionaries know how that feels!). If I leave Crewe, I really want to be called to Wales! I heard it is really beautiful! Elder Methorst thinks I will stay and that I will train here! That would be SO scary; yet fun at the same time! Whelp we will see! I love being here in England and the UK; I have learned so much I've been out here! These 7 MONTHS have transformed me and helped me become a better person because of it! Also for those who are leaving out on their missions, always remember that the Lord wants you to be you! That is why He has called you to that specific place because the people there need YOU!
Thank you all for the constant prayers in my behalf for I can truly feel them as I go throughout my days! May the Lord bless you all in rich abudance!
With Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor :)

Hey Everyone!
IMPORTANT NEWS: I can now email to you all! I know it is a little expensive to send letters snail mail so you can now email me! My email address is: So if you would like to still send me snail mail, I would still love it! But to safe you some post expense you can email me.
So last Sunday was Mother's Day here in the UK! It made me think of my own mother and all the things she has and still does for me. Truly mothers are such a blessing in the lives of all of us! Also something else that happened on Sunday is that me and Elder Methorst taught Primary! It was my first time EVER teaching a Primary class! It was pretty fun and the children are so knowledgable about the Gospel. Truly future kingdom builders. But don't get me wrong it was tough to have them pay attention to the lesson being given. Still you can't get mad at them for their enthusiasm! :) I am enjoying my time here in Crewe and we see miracles everyday here. I love my mission and I cherish the people that I have been able to meet and associate with on the Isle of Man, Whitefield, here in Crewe and of course the missionaries here in the England Manchester Mission!
I bear witness that that this work is truly the work of Almighty God! I am grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ who invites us all to 'Come unto Him'. I love the people here in the United Kingdom and I cherish this time I have to serve them. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
With Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor

Hey everyone!
Before I begin I just wanted to leave a message for those who are on the Isle of Man who keep posted on my blog: I heard you all were at the temple! I am so sad that I didn't see you all! Also for those on the Isle who wrote me, I will write you all back today. Sorry for the late response but just know that I love you all!
So this week has been so filled with miracles and a little opposition. There was a day where me and Elder Methorst were talking to people on the streets and a few of them were really rude and crude. Another day we were walking and a few young people called us names but we dusted our shoulders of there foolish taunts Lol. Anyway we realized that something good must be around the corner! Then the next day, we were by the Czech family we are teaching! We went by and they were home! They let us in! We were able to catch up with them to see how they were doing. We then taught them about the Importance of the Book of Mormon. It started out a little bumpy with music playing in the background. But then Daniel turned off the music and Elder Methorst was prompted to read with them from the Book of Mormon and we read together with them; us in English and them in Czech. We read Mosiah 3:5-19. After reading that we asked them how they felt when we read it. They said they felt so peaceful and we knew then and there that they felt the Spirit of God! We then asked them to read together as a family and also we asked them if they came to know that the Book of Mormon is true, would they be baptized and they said YES! What joy we felt and the love we felt from our Savior and from that family!
I testify that the Book of Mormon is truly another witness of the Savior's divine sonship and ministry! I know this because I myself have read from this book and I cannot deny that it is, with the Holy Bible, the word of God! I invite you all to read from its pages if you haven't for yourself and see if it is from God! I love reading Moroni's testimony of the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10 and also Nephi's testimony in 2 Nephi 33. This I leave with you in the name of Jesus Christ Amen!
