We’ve been playing a game as we street contact

It sounds like a fun week there, I’m glad that everything has been okay with Dad and they have it all figured out and that he is doing well.  Soccer will save lives, It is a proven fact! General Conference was also great I’ve been able to look over my notes and to think about everything that has been taught and I really enjoyed it all as well. General Conference is a lot more different on a mission, but I only have two more general conferences to listen to on my mission.

So the challenge to exercise the power of the priesthood and to serve someone I will put some thought into it and see what we can do. It’ll come up, so we’ll have to wait and see.

So this week for us we’ve been out finding a lot, and just Tuesday we had East Scotland Conference and President has enforced some rules because some Elders have been listening to much Disney music. So no more Disney Music. It was a great conference and President talked about giving more voice to Joseph. So reading more or using more of his own words when in a lesson because we want people to know that he was called of God so we are doing it.

Out of all our finding we had a referral and we were able to set up a time to sit down with him. So we were waiting for him and he was running late so we gave him and called and told us he was just down the main street. So we go to the spot where he said he would be, and there are these two guys just singing away and my first thought is oh man it’s the guy with the guitar singing. So Elder Foster and I were talking about what to do. Then this guy starts to walk up to us and he is this muscle rich looking guy. He has all the posh clothes on and then I think here is a guy that is going to try and make fun of us, but it turned out to be the referral Charlie! So we talked to him and he wasn’t what I expected at all. I really thought it was going to be this middle aged Scottish man that is going to carry around a bible and was going to bash with us, but nope. So we sat down on a bench in the high street and taught him the restoration. He loved it from what he said. He also knows everyone in Arbroath so everyone was trying to talk to him and he would tell them to all go away. Then during the lesson, this lady who we’ve been talking to on the street came up to us with her little kids and said Hi and everyone wanted to talk to us while we were teaching this guy so that was pretty cool. Hopefully we will see him again soon.

Then also we got an investigator at Church a guy named Fred. Fred is a bit slow, but we are visiting him because he has asked us to come over and see him and help him come to church. So we are just focusing on bringing him to church.

Other than that it has been a normal week in missionary work.

We’ve also been playing a game while we street contact. We’ll count our attempts to talk to people and how many conversations one of us will get. So the person who gets the less attempts and conversations will have to do the number of push-ups and sit ups of the person that got more. Been doing it to help Elder Foster talk to more people. It’s working! In the last 3 days I’ve attempted to talk to over 120 people and have had a few conversations. So Elder Foster has been doing a good work out lately. He did get more conversations than me the other day, so I had to do some sit ups for him. It’s been a good thing to help us talk to as many people as we can.

Then yeah, so I’m glad Dad is doing well and everything is alright. How is Alex doing?

I’ll look for ways of using priesthood power this week as well and I’ll get some pictures of the T-shirts today. So should be fun.

My emails are slowing a bit down so sorry. So send a bunch of questions so that I’ll be able to tell you more about what is happening here in Arbroath Scotland!
