We had a wonderful time skyping with Elder Augustine on Christmas day. Thank you to Ruth and David Allen for hosting Elder Augustine and his companion Elder Wall for Christmas day, and especially for providing the technology so that our family could talk and see Elder Augustine. We had the privledge of meeting the Allens, his companion and the Elder’s neighbor who joined them for a wonderful Christmas meal. One item that Elder Augustine has requested is pictures, so to those who are reading this please send him printed pictures. We loved hearing his experiences and about the people he has met, the highlight was of course was Elder Augustine leading our family in a family prayer – there was not a dry eye. We love our Squire and are so proud that he has chosen to devote his time to serving the Lord at this time. He definatly is growing spiritually and we can’t thank the members enough in Kilmarnock and Airdrie who have opened their homes and their hearts to him.
Christmas eve we stopped in to see Elder Augustine’s great-grandmother Saunders (who is from Drongan, Scotland) and showed her Elder Augustine’s video of him playing his chanter, so she was giving him advice and decided to film her advice to him which we showed him on Christmas. Here is her video:
Here is Elder Augustine’s response to her video:
Elder Augustine spent Boxing Day with Sister Jackie Dalley which she wrote, ” Elder Augustine and Elder Wall have just gone back to their flat ,they’ve been here all day and watched 3 films and had a huge dinner of roast lamb, mash potatoes ,roast potatoes, sprouts and gravy then a huge piece of chocolate gateau with squirty cream . I think they will fall asleep now.” Thank you Sister Dalley for providing such a wonderful day to Elder Augustine and his companion.
