3rd week at the MTC.

As Elder Pereira was leaving to his first area on the Wednesday, they didn't have a proper P-Day that week which meant a shorter e-mail.

Elder Kerr of the Seventy visited the MTC and spoke to the missionaries, shaking hands with everyone before leaving. Elder Pereira said he was great and that he really enjoys hearing him speak as he's always so positive.

They went to Manchester on that Friday again to do some more street contacting, which went much better than the first time as more people would listen to them.

On the Sunday the missionaries got to talk about the countries where they're from and to sing their National Anthems. Elder Pereira and Sister Rodrigues as the only Portuguese missionaries there, sang the Portuguese National Anthem on their own. Fourteen countries were represented. Later they watched part of the Queen's Jubilee Celebration.

A celebration was organised on the Monday in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, which consisted of a service project, garden festivities, a movie on the life of the Queen, and a traditional English dinner. 

Their last night at the MTC was spent eating cookies and ice cream, before a last meeting with everyone.

The next morning was an early one as they prepared to leave to their first areas with one last hug from the MTC President.
