Hey everyone!
I can't believe these days are going by so fast for me; it seems like every transfer goes quicker and quicker than the next one lol!
Telford is such a great place! I enjoy being here; its so beautiful and green here! The members are wonderful as well! On Sunday I gave a talk on my conversion story to the ward. I truly felt the Spirit as I bore my testimony and shared my story with this great ward. So much that I became emotional at some parts of my talk (if you know me well, this shouldn't come as a surprise lol). The interesting thing is is that some of the people in there are converts to the Church as well and so they could picture in their minds their own conversion to the Gospel! What a beautiful experience that was.
This morning (Monday 27th of May) I was reading in 2 Nephi 3 really about Lehi telling his son Joseph about his ancestor Joseph in the Old Testament when he was in Egypt. He goes on to say how Joseph was shown their people, Joseph Smith and the last days (which we are in). I invite you all to read this great chapter; you may find great treasures for yourself as you do so.
Have a great week you all! I love you!
With Love,

Elder Terrence M. Taylor :)

Hey Everyone,
So things are going well in my new area! The people here are great, the ward is very supportive and the work is progressing! Missionary work is the best! So many things happening!
So we went up to Stake Conference in Newcastle on Saturday the 18th! The talks given were so powerful and totally for me! A lady talked about how sometimes we want to do it our way instead of the Lord's way and also how we sometimes are down about ourselves when we come across trials in our lives. She was saying that we need to realize that the Lord puts us in situations that will only make us stronger! After pondering about that, I was reading in the Doctrine and Covenants Section 122 where the Prophet Joseph Smith was in Liberity Jail. There was a verse that hit me so strong which says: "The Son of Man hath descended above them all. Art thou greater than He?" The Spirit truly gave me correction there lol. Are we greater than He? I will answer with a NO!
I am so grateful for the Savior and His example! I know that as we count on our Father in Heaven's and Christ's help, we can do all things through them. I am grateful that we have a modern day prophet on the Earth at this time and because we have one, there is light on the earth once more. I hope you all have a great week this week!
With Love,

Hey everybody!
What a crazy week this week! I love being a missionary and the chance that I have to serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ here in the U.K. I was able to talk to my mother and my sisters for Mothers' Day on Sunday! What a great experience that was for me to talk to the best women in the world to me! :) I love them to bits!
Just to let you know that I have been transfered....AGAIN! I am now in a place called Telford. The mission office was good, BUT I was rooming with some missionaries who were completely disobedient to the mission rules. They went on a ferry ride whilst going to drop something off in the mission owned van which was paid by the tithes of the Church. I was so mad at them! I then told President Preston what they did and then decided to move out of there and head to another area. I love my new area because I am in a great ward and with an obedient missionary named Elder Bahr! He is such a great missionary! What I've learned on my mission alot about is being obedient to the commandments and mission rules! I am so grateful for them because they are there for our safety and happiness in this life! Also if you want you can send a letter to my Telford address or the mission office address. Here is the address:
Elder Terrence Taylor
77 Chepstow Drive
Telford, Shropshire TF1 6UP
England, U.K.
I am so grateful to be a member of this Church and to be a minister of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! I am grateful for my Heavenly Father and His Plan of Happiness! I am so touched by His tender mercies that He has given me in my life! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
With Love,

Hey Everyone!
I've been transferred! I am now in the City of Manchester serving as an Office Elder! It is so crazy to be in the mission office now! I am excited to serve in this way! Also if you have emailed me forgive me; I will reply I soon as I can! :)
I am so sad that I am not in the Crewe Ward anymore but I know the Lord needs me here to serve the people here and also the missionaries in the EMM! It is gonna be hectic in the office due to the fact of the 28 new missionaries coming in next transfer! So we need to set up new apartments and deliver loads of stuff! I am so excited for this new assignment! :)
I know that this work is true and that this is a lifesaving work! I am honored to be apart of this in a small way! I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and my friend! I know that He lives and because He lives, we will live also! This I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
With Love,
Elder Terrence M. Taylor :)
