week 82 - Sunny Dundee

So I don't think I've told you much about the weather around Dundee, it's actually the sunniest place that I've been on my mission! Haha do you like how it took me nearly 2 months of being here to tell you that? It is still really cold though, but at least the sun is shining while it's cold! It helps so much when we go out finding. When the sun is out people just seem happier and more willing to talk! We had a lot of finding this week because a lot of our appointments with our investigators fell through. T., who is the one who is the most promising, couldn't meet at all this past week, and we just got a text that she is on holiday all this week so we won't see her for a while! She is still reading the book of mormon and staying in touch so I'm sure it'll work out alright! We did find a new guy to teach named M. who has met up with us once so far. He's only curious really about what we believe and tells us he has no intention really of joining our church or going any further after he learns about it, but he said he is willing to read and pray about the book of mormon which is the important part so that's cool! He's a solid Christian guy from Ireland who's studying over here in Dundee, and to be honest it's so nice to talk to young people like him who are Christians cause you hardly ever find any young person over here with a belief in God. When we meet up with him this week we'll see if his curiosity has turned into anything more, like a real desire to discover if the things we share about are true.

We're probably going to head to St. Andrews today for our P-day so I'll make sure to get some really good pictures! Bro. Elkins has also said that he might take us golfing in St. Andrews one of our pdays which would be so cool!!! We won't go on the old course, because that's really expensive but there is like 8 other courses in St. Andrews so we'll just go on one of them probably.

thank you so much by the way for talking with the coach at CGCC dad! Hopefully things can work out there when I get back in July.

Well I love you all so much and I hope you have a great week!!!
