We had a pretty exciting week. The start of the week we had like the whole zone come to Aberdeen so we could all travel down to Edinburgh. Monday was just crazy, but the drive down was pretty fun. We get to Edinburgh and we were going to spend the night with the ZL’s down there, but then one of the AP’s called us and told us to come to the mission home. So we went to the Mission Home. Never spent the night in the mission home before so that was pretty new for me. It wasn’t anything exciting, to be honest. But spent the night and off we were to the conference.
The conference was pretty good. President Donaldson had a friend that was visiting him. His friend Brother Baker was one of President Donaldson’s former companions from his mission here in Scotland. So he got up at the start of the meeting and spoke to all of us. Spoke for a long time but it was all pretty good stuff. President Donaldson told us how Elder Baker would go into an area and find all these people then he would come in and baptize them all. The rest of the conference was all about the Sabbath Day and Baptism.
Then we had a fun zone council at the end of it. Where we spoke to the missionaries in our zone about basic missionary skills and attitude. We are going to be trying out a few different things in the zone and getting everyone all excited about it all.
Well, the conference came to an end and once again we were on the road back to Aberdeen. See Aberdeen is great but we just have drive everywhere so much. So for the rest of the week, we were all around the city finding new people. We went on an exchange with the Elders from Stornoway. I was with Elder Agovofo, I have no idea how to spell his name but he is from Russia. He actually came out with me. So I haven’t seen him really since the MTC and I think Glasgow, but it was a fun day with him.
So Saturday came around and we got to drive back to Edinburgh for an exchange there. I went off with Elder Grant who turns out lives right next to Jake Gardner. So that was bit interesting to chat throughout the day about all the people that we knew. The exchange was good, we mostly just found the whole day. Then once again we had the long drive all the back to Aberdeen.
That was pretty much the week. This week is going to be pretty cool. President Nelson and Elder Holland will be visiting the U.K. and there will be a special broadcast out to Great Britain and Ireland. Then we’ll have stake conference here in Aberdeen on Saturday and Sunday. So should be all exciting. Also, it will be moves call on Saturday. No, it hasn’t been 6 weeks. This transfer was only 4 weeks. So yes after this Saturday I will have one transfer left on my mission.
So I got the shirts and hats we will go and get some great photos today for P-day!
