Week 22 - January 2, 2017

Hiya, guys! 

Happy 2017!!  Can you believe I will spend this entire year on a mission?  That blows my mind haha, I am pumped!  This week was a tough one, we had no motivation to get out.  It was pretty hard, and we had an interesting weekend, but we still tried our best!

Wednesday:  We had no lessons planned, everyone is out of town or with their families.  We GQ'd pretty much the entire day with not much success.  But the work goes on!

Thursday:  A pretty good day!  We met with a lot of RC/LA members and talked to them about the importance of starting 2017 off coming closer to God by coming to church!  We went on a little exchange with the Aberdeen Elders, too.  They passed off a Chinese investigator to us named Meng.  She is cool, just doesn't seem to care to much about finding out if God is real.

Friday:  Another long day of GQ'ing, with no success, all good though!

Saturday:  This is where things got all wacky again.  We had half a day where we met with some RC's, then we had the entire night off!  We all went over to the Stake Center and played basketball and football.  It was a lot of fun!

Sunday:  We slept over at the Zone Leaders' flat and stayed up the entire night and watched more movies!  We all pitched in 2 £ and bought "Finding Dory, Too."  I loved it! There was a bunch of fireworks that went off in the city and we had a great view of them all. Sadly, I forgot my camera, but it was a really good time!  We then went to Church for only 40 minutes, literally no one was there.  They had no buses running either.  We didn't manage to get any investigators there, bummer.  After church, we went over to some members for lunch, then back over to the ZL's for board games, movies, food, and more fun!  Later in the night, the Zls got a call and so did the Aberdeen Elders.  Long story short, A LOT of missionaries got emergency moves all over the mission.  Elder C our ZL is leaving and so is Elder G from Aberdeen.  They are both going to Ireland and we are getting two other missionaries here! 

Monday:  We got all of Monday off, too.  The Elders leaving packed, and we all watched some more movies and played games.  We had a huge sports night in the Stake Center with a bunch of RCs and Investigators at night.  It was well good!  After that, we called it a night

So that was my week sort of condensed and sort of making sense.  Kind of hard to explain everything.  Elder Carlise and I are still here and we got 4 weeks left in this transfer to find some prepared people and help them enter into the waters of baptism!  It was nice to relax a lot and catch up on rest, but it felt weird, and I really just wanted to work.  So this week, we are going to be working extra hard to make our goals happen.  

I love you guys so much and hope you all had a great New Years!  2017 is going to be a great year, and I can't wait to see all of the miracles and blessings the Lord will provide for me!  It was great to relax, but it's time to get back to work!  Talk to you soon!
