"Chinedu Egbunike is the newest member of the Ilford Ward. We had such a miracle at his baptism on Saturday. He invited his family and his brother. His brother brought his family (wife and 2 children) and they had so many questions and wanted to meet with us. It was a really good experience. It was a wonderful turnout and the ward was so supportive. Sunday was another amazing experience. Chinedu was confirmed and sustained as a member of the church by the ward and he kept thanking everybody. I've never seen anyone so happy. Not everyone we planned on came to church which is probably the hardest thing about being a missionary, but the spirit was so strong. I was fed tremendously and filled with the joy of the Gospel.

John Fowles, his wife and 3 children moved into our ward. He graduated from law school with Alexandra and knows Brigham. His wife is Madam Welsh's daughter and went to France with Paul and Josh. He is working for an international law firm in London.

I can't believe my next bit of news. On Monday night late we got a call from my former Zone Leader from Northampton who is the new Assistant(I called it, he's amazing!). He extended a call to me to be a Trainer. Yes, I'm training a new missionary. The reality of it comes and goes in rushes of "Oh my, Oh dear, Oh my!". I'm so new. I feel VERY inadequate. I do know that there are only 2 new sisters coming. One from the States and one from Romania. I'm excited for the learning and growing opportunity, just scared to of the eternal consequences. I'm crossing my fingers that she is coming on her 3rd mission and she can train me. Hopefully she won't depend on me as much as I depended on Sister Anyanwu. Thank you for your prayers. I will need a few extra the next 6 weeks. love, Sister Cannon"
