Weekly Update #36

From a bit later than usual, howdy! Let's get this rolling.
     The rest of Monday was grand. Jack took us to the Scottish Mining Museum and it was pretty intense. The building was neat, the tour was neat too. Selfie. 

We then went about and did a bit of contacting, which was cold but fun!
     On Tuesday we travelled out to a small town and did some finding out there. That was grand and we met some pretty fun people. We then went to knock on another neighbourhood where we talked with some more incredible people. Really neat to talk with fun people. Most of these fellows only wanted to talk, not about the gospel, sadly. We then went out and taught the mother and daughter a lovely lesson.
     Wednesday, we weekly planned because on Thursday there was an All-Scotland meeting. That was fun, but let this email be an email of order. Wednesday we had Jack after weekly planning, mainly because we couldn't meet Thursday. The meal was the same: spaghetti. I'll never tire of Jack's spaghetti. It's just too good. He's a champion. Truly a scholar and a gent. After Jack, we did a bit of finding and whatnot.
     The All-Scotland was a blast! Elder Kearon of the European Area Seventy was there and it was a grand meeting. The overall theme was "Just Do It", or at least that's what I got from it. It was fantastic, nonetheless and I was pumped afterwards. Also, we had ward council when we got back to Dalkeith. That, as always, was fun.
     When Friday came around things went a wee bit less than expected. Within ten minutes, the two appointments we had set up cancelled. It was shocking, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. We went out and had lunch at the Johnston's, travelled back, did finding, and I got a fantastic letter from my family. Love you family! It was good.
     Saturday was a special day, it was the day we were told that the Mormons ran UPS. Elder Roylance and I were shocked when a fellow asked us if we were Mormons, to which we said yes, then his follow-up question of if we worked for the UPS. I was confused. Apparently, it's a thing that The Church owns UPS or part of, as well as Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, and many other companies. After asking a member to Google it for us, we found it was false. With that aside, another appointment cancelled so we did finding! It was glorious. Also, we had a donner pizza with lots of fun stuff. Delicious.

     Then with Sunday we did the usual. The mother and daughter were at church, Elder Roylance gave a wonderful talk, we had a fantastic dinner with the Middleton's, and then we got moves call. Fun fact: this was only a five week transfer. It didn't really matter because we were told we were staying together. Whoooooo! Dalkeith! I'm excited!
      Anywho, that is that! Hopefully the Spirit of Christmas is working within us to tell everyone about the meaning of Christmas! Everyone, have a great week. Work hard, do stuff, and do your best.
