Well hoped you enjoyed that story.
This past week was great. The weather was wonderful.
This Past Monday, Sister Donaldson took us to Costco. There we bought several things. We bought a 4.5 kg bag of pancake mix, a liter of maple syrup, and a big box of granola bars.
We had some great lessons with Mark and Kate (sorry I keep meaning to get a photo of them but I forgot). We started reteaching Mark the discussions and preparing kate to go to the temple.
Mark wasn't able to go to church because he starting passing out because of high blood pressure. He said to the paramedics “I don’t want to go to the Hospital, I want to go to church in the morning”. The Lord knows his heart. I’m grateful to have met Mark. He is a great friend.
This week I’ve been studying about the parable of the talents. What I learned is that we are given much and God expects us to do our best. We shouldn't compare ourselves to other. What matters is how God sees you. I’m grateful that Heavenly Father has given me certain gifts and also disabilities. I know that he is Happy when I do my best.
This week a member is making haggis neeps and tatties, a traditional scottish meal. Elder Watson and I haven't had haggis before so it will be a fun time!
I hope you all have a wonderful week
