This week was quite busy to be honest. So last Tuesday, was the last All-Scotland with President Donaldson. It was really good. We got to get some pictures taken and we said our goodbyes which was sad. However, we got to have a video conference with Elder Bednar. He's quite funny. It was a question and answer session and the main message he shared with us is how we don't need an Apostle to find answers to our quesiton. He really wanted us to be able to find answers to questions that we didn't ask him through the promptings of the Spirit. It was a really awesome experience. One thing he shared with us is how when we get rebuked by the Spirit it shouldn't be a sad occasion. Often times we think rebuking is a bad thing but really it's just an opportunity for us to change and become better. The Spirit doesn't yell at us but if our hearts are in the right place then we get prompted to change by the Spirit we will joyfully do so. I thought that that was a pretty neat insight that Elder Bednar shared.
I have been really grateful for President and Sister Donaldson and the things they have been able to teach me. They are awesome! One thing that stands out the most is if we're doing all in our power then we are a successful missionary but there is a lot that is in our power as missionaries so we should always be busy.
So the rest of the week was good. We taught Cynthia again. We were able to answer some questions she had about tithing and what happens to everyone after they die. She came to church again and afterwards two girls in the ward got baptised and she was able to stay and attend. She said it almost brought her to tears. She knows she wants to get baptised but just wants her mind to be clear on a few questions she has. She also has a fear of water but I think her desire to get baptised is greater.
We also found a guy named Calum when we were chapping on Saturday. We were able to teach him the restoration and he was really excited to get his own copy of the Book of Mormon since he has looked into different religions but doesn't have much of a belief himself. We're hopefully seeing him on Friday.
And for P-day last week it was back to Glasgow. Sadly Motherwell's area doesn't have any ocean next to it but it's still quite nice.
I love you guys! Have a great week!
I guess one cone wasn't enough. They keep adding more every time I see this statue.
