|Helensburgh, Scotland at Christmas time|
This week was really fun! We had a lot of stuff going on for the holidays, and we rested up for the upcoming year to push even harder than we did this year! It was great! So, we have missed a few updates since the libraries close for the holidays here, so this update will just cover from Boxing Day up to New Year’s Day, and then hopefully we'll be on track after that.
So, on Boxing Day, we just chilled out all day and then went over to a less active's house for dinner. It was a really relaxing day. Then on Tuesday we had a half P-Day since things were open again, and then we spent the day finding with a dinner appointment in the evening to finish off the day. We also saw a bit of the Church's Christmas Devotional, and the Queen's Annual Christmas Speech at this dinner appointment.
Then the next day we were back at it. And we were finding all day. Thursday was good because we had a service project in the morning, and that was really fun to mix things up a bit. It was awesome! We even got a new mirror for our bathroom from it! It is really nice to be using a nice mirror, as opposed to the half mirror that we had before! haha! So that was good! That was followed by a lunch appointment, and then some good finding in the area to finish off the day.
Friday we were finding all day, and then we went to see a part member couple in the evening. It was good. They are a really good couple. They enjoy some good banter! It's great! New Year's Eve was a snore for us. As we were finished with our day by 6pm, and we just decided to stay in a relax. It was quite nice! I think I went to bed at like, 9:45.
Happy New Year! haha! New Year's Day was great! We had church, with only a one hour service again. This meeting was nice! I have really enjoyed our meetings the past little while! They have spoken about really good things! Then afterwards, we went over to the Couper's house for dinner, and then we stayed a while, played some card games, and just hung out! Then we went over to the Gallacher's house to finish off the last 2 hours of the night. They are a good family. It was good to spend time with them.
But that was my week! Sorry about it being so rapid fire! I am trying to finish this email before my timer runs out on the computer! Things have been good out here! It was kind of surreal to welcome in 2017, but I am excited for the months ahead of me. The mission has achieved great miracles, and I know that we can achieve even more this upcoming year! We finished the year with 367 baptisms as a mission, and we rejoice in that! The Work is good, but it's not done yet. Love you all!
Till the Work is Done
