It was a tough but great week!
This is how it went!
On Monday, we went thrift shopping. We are lucky to have a lot in our area so we had a bunch to choose from. We also found a little Chinese shop in Helensburgh that sells A&W! We also got our hair cuts #Thatwasexpensive.
On Tuesday, we went to Glasgow for district meeting. The train decided not to stop at the stop nearest the chapel so we had to have some of the missionaries with a car pick us up.
We had a great district meeting. We talked about motivation in our missionary work. I shared about my motivation. I talked about representing Jesus Christ and also my family as a strong motivation when things start to get challenging!
Our Mission President and his Wife, President and Sister Donaldson, showed up after our meeting! It was great to talk with them
After district meeting we went on exchanges! This time i was with Elder Scholz. He is from California. For the day we spent finding on the one and only Buchanan Street. The day got so much greater when we ended the day with 2 dozen donuts from The king of all donuts... Krispy Kreme.. and it was legit... I got a Reese's peanut butter and jelly donuts and the original glazed... so Good!!!
On Wednesday, we traveled back to Dumbarton. We went finding for most of the day!
I the evening we went to the Gallachers for Dinner. They made a really delicious curry. They had their granddaughter there as well so she made the entertainment for the evening!
Afterwards we went on splits. I went with Johnathan and we went to see some less active members! After we tried by them, Johnathan got me a banana milkshake from McDonald's! It was delicious!
On Thursday, It was just a whole day of finding. We talked to some really nice people!
On Friday, Most of the day we spent finding.
In the evening we went to Sister O'Rawe's house for dinner. We had a great evening. She just got a new triple combination (Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price) and she was reading a lot! She gave us some homework for the next time we come back!
Saturday was a great and interesting day. Dumbarton hosted the National Bag Pipe championship. While walking through Dumbarton, you could see so many people wearing kilts, it was great. You could also hear hundreds and hundreds of bagpipes! It was great! So it was very interesting to find during that.
In the evening we went to Sister Ann Brownings house. We mowed her lawn for her! It was tough with electric mowers we got it done. Afterwards, she fed us some hot dogs and root beer!
Sunday, we had a great sacrament meeting! We had a joint priesthood/relief society meeting! Some visitors from the stake talked about overcoming addictions. I really like the 12 step program and the integrated gospel principles that go with it!
For lunch, we went the Coupers again. We had a wonderful chicken roast that was very delicious. The new harry potter book had come out that day, so they were telling me about it!
The rest of the evening we went finding!
It was a great week!
Thank you for all the Birthday wishes! I look forward to the packages this week!
I hope you all have a great week!
