Keep walking! :)

Sorry, I don't have much time since we are skyping on Sunday. :)

We did a lot of work this week. We had a lot of missionaries we had to take care of and focus our efforts where they were needed in Dundee. We had a meeting with the stake presidency and the mission presidency on how we can move the work forward here in the Dundee Stake. It was a great meeting and we got a lot of great ideas. I am really grateful that I get to work around so many inspired men and women. 

We had a golden investigator drop us this week. She came up to us a few weeks ago and said she wanted to learn more about Jesus Christ. This week she said she didn't want to meet anymore and she wanted to find her own way. We were shattered. It was really hard, but we know that as we are faithful and continue to do our best that the Lord will continue to lead us to those that are prepared. I need to be willing to become more clean. I need to repent and be more worthy of the spirit to guide me and put words into my mouth. I want to be a clean vessel. 

We were in the city center the other day talking to people, and I went to stop this family. As I said "Hiya, how are you?" The little girl (she was probably 5) sticks her hand up and goes "We're too busy." I said "You're too busy for the greatest message in the world?" She kept her hand up, kept walking and replied "We're too busy." The dad looked at me, kept walking and just shrugged. It was quite funny. Hopefully I'll see them again. 

I also stopped this man, and he said he was busy but he'd be back in 10 minutes, and then he would talk to me. I told him that I would hold him to that. When he came back we sat down on a bench, and he told me his story. He was a member and then got his records removed by his mum when he was 13. He got rebaptised when he was 19 and excommunicated when he was in his 20s. Fast forward 20 years and he was longing for those feelings he used to have in the church. He missed the love of God in his heart and wanted that back. We set him with a baptismal date and we are excited to help him get back on the right path. 

I look forward to skyping you!! I love you. Have a great week.
