Finally word from England

We have made it to England - Hull to be exact. Our new address is Elder and Sister Jimmie D. Olson; 46 Pearson Park, Hull, HU5 2TG. The days have meshed together since we got here. But we are well and safe. We have been rescued a few times. We have a car and I'm afraid to say that we have probably broken a few traffic laws - accidentally of course. We have been briefed by Elder and Sister Martin the residing missionaries that are going home on Friday. We have met lots of great people, mostly young adults and we can see that we have work to do - to establish a Young Adult Center. We need at least 75 active young single adults to get one of those. The ground work has been laid, but we need to do lots of work to finish the task. When we first got here, President Lindley took us to the Preston Temple and the MTC in England. He also took us to the stream where Heber C. Kimball baptized many converts. It was there that we dedicated ourselves to the missionary service. We recited an oath and said a silent prayer. We are very blessed to be in England.
