Monday Nov 30, 2015

This week has been very interesting here in Dumbarton so it has. I dunny ken why, but the Lord has shined upon us. Literally. Most of the days have been braw and nay rain, we have found many new potential people to Learn about the Lord. 

The work is going grand. So this week we had District meeting and it went decently, it is hard to instruct over skype but we made it work. 

Throughout the week we recieved 3 refferals and were fed lots. 
So on tuesdays we usually have a guitar night, but I didn't feel like it was a good idea, so I talked to my companion about it and we decided not to go to it, Since then the miracles have been just flowing. We found many potentials to teach and have taken over city centers and met people who are interested, I look forward to contacting all of them this week. 
We recieved a text message from one of the members this week and he told us his friend's son wanted to learn about the church, that he had questions about the church and wanted to know some answers, so last night we met with him and him and his mom came to the member's house and we had a good discussion. We shared alot about how the church is all based on a spiritual witness and he asked questions such as, Why do bad things happen? and where do we go after we die, he also commended us on how Mormons are much more commited in his opinion to their church. He was a good lad he was 15 and his name was Ben and he has been fascinated by Religion he likes debates and such but he has been fascinated. We have talked about Prayer and he told us he tried once but then never did it again. and he told us he recieved no answers, we explained how we need to be more persistent to recieve answers, it was a good meeting. 

We also showed up at church on Sunday and we walked in and saw a man named Brian we had met the previous week and he was there for church so that was a miracle, and some other elders also gave us 2 potentials they found in Glasgow. so it was a great day. 

David and katie and Courtney are doing great, they are progressing very well, David even asked us as we were teaching about commandments he said, " Do you think that January 9th is too far away, I feel that is a long way away," so we invited him to pray over it, and he moved his date to the 11th of December. He believes that these things are true and they as a family love it so much they feel a closer bond as they pray together. It's been a miracle week. 

i know that the lord expects us to be Obedient and if we are obedient he blesses us, if we are diligent he blesses us, I love this gospel I don't know where I would be without it and it is the GREATEST blessing I have ever recieved. I love all of you and hope you are all doing well.
