This past Monday, we taught a guy named Andrew, and he Hello everybody! This past week was awesome! I loved it! The weather was smashing here! Absolutely amazing! It’s been like 60 degrees and sunny everyday! Fantastic! We also had a good time to go finding and do quite a bit of service this week!
is from America, but he has lived in Stranraer for a while now. So we met up with him and had some lunch and taught him about the Holy Ghost, and that was pretty solid. So he is gonna meet up with us this upcoming week. So that was awesome!
We also met a few times with a guy named Steven. Steven has been investigating for a while and he is a legend. So he came to church this week and he wanted to learn about baptism, so we taught him and then he accepted a baptismal date! He said that before, the concept of baptism scared him, but now he is getting more comfortable with it. It was a really good day. We were with him for 2 hours on Sunday since he was the only one for priesthood and gospel principles. So it was so great! The Branch really likes him as well! I like small branches for that reason. They get to be really tight knit! It's awesome! But we are excited for Steven and his willingness to change!
Other than that, we have just been finding and sunbathing at the same time! haha! But it has been really amazing these past few weeks here in Stranraer!
I want to share a quote with you guys! I found it this week! And it has reshaped my outlook on things! It's so baller! Here it is!
“How often – even before we began – have we declared a task “impossible”? And how often have we construed a picture of ourselves as being inadequate? . . . A great deal depends upon the thought patterns we choose and on the persistence with which we affirm them.”
I think this quote is so great! Especially when we look at goal setting and making our wants become reality! This quote also takes on a whole new meaning when we bring Jesus Christ into the equation. With Him, no task is ever really truly "impossible".
Love you all!
Till the Work is Done
