(Insert terrible attempt at copy Robert Burns' poetry for a welcoming address. Please see http://www.robertburns.org/works/147.shtml for a proper address) Here's this week!
Monday was a usual Monday. I was lazy with my camera this week, so I really only took pictures on Saturday, but I'll include a picture from Wednesday, too. Anywho, Monday was grand!
Tuesday we rocked and rolled out for some work. We did some good stuff Tuesday. While we consumed lunch, we got a call that our exchanges, which were scheduled for Tuesday, were not going to happen in the morning, but more so in the evening. So, we went on our merry way! We had a fantastic dinner and then a marvellous lesson with Annette and her daughter. After, we ran out, got Elder Crowe and Lampropoulus, and returned to the flat to drink much soda.
Wednesday, we did dealings for the morning (except for a picture) until 1 when we had a magical spaghetti lunch with Jack. It was magical, let me say. After, Elder Lampropoulus and I got a lift from Elder Tarbet and Gullion and we went to Edinburgh for the world-wide missionary broadcast. That was great, but before then we went to this restaurant called Nandos, which serves mainly chicken. It was very pleasing. After, the missionary broadcast was a blast. It was. Wow! I recommend it to all.
Thursday we had some planning then a lunch with Anne! That, as always, was great. We had a grand time. Then, we had some time to do some work before flat inspections, so we cleaned a little bit. After, we had flat inspections, we passed, and ate at this really neat place in Dalkeith that we've never been to but we're going to return because we might have a potential investigator over there now. Woooo!
Friday, we went about working before our lunch at the Johnston's, which is always great, let me say. After the lunch, we did a touch of service, then ran into Newtongrange for a lesson with a wonderful woman, who happened to have gotten held up in the hospital so we rescheduled. After, we had another lesson with a chap and then we called it a night!
Saturday was indeed a special day. In the morning, we produced some Biscoff Blondes for the legendary BBP (Biscoff Blonde Principle).
We then had steak bakes for lunch. Please note: in the picture with the steak bakes, the Coke is not mine. Mine is the bottle of Irn Bru. In the afternoon, we went about and delivered them. All the folks we wanted to see were home and it was great. We get really lucky, because two of the families were either just getting home or had just gotten in. It was grand, though. In the evening, we had some venison because it was on sale at Tesco on Monday. It was great!
What am I to say about Sunday other than it was another fantastic Sunday? It was grand! We went to church, had a good meeting, got back from church, finished up some planning we didn't quite get to, visited a less-active, and had an overall good day.
What a blessing it is! Today is Robert Burns Day, hence why I tried to create poetry but ended up saying 'Nah, I don't need that.' It's going to be a great week! I've got one week 'till moves call, so we'll see what happens next week!
When setting goals, remember Alma 32:28. Change a bit, though. Instead of comparing the word to a seed, compare a goal to a seed. I know that as we do allow the Spirit to work with us as we set goals and as we give it room in our hearts, not casting it out because of a lack of confidence, but having full faith that the goal is good and will work, we will achieve great things.
Thank you so much for your letters! I love you all! F'reals!
