We had fun this week! We had a good break from people getting angry at us, and we got in a good amount of finding!! We didn’t really find anyone that wanted to listen, so we’re going to have to change our methods a bit. We did have a lot of fun experiences this week though!!
Some exciting news, a man the we found and taught when I was in Dublin for 8 days got baptized this week!! His name is Gustavo, but it’s exciting to hear that he entered into the waters of baptism 🙂
Yesterday we went to a non-denominational Christian church!! It was a lot of fun!! We sang and danced like they do…it was pretty sweet! Then right after that, Nathanael came to our church for sacrement meeting. He liked it, but isn’t too interested. It’s alright though, he’s a great guy!
One thing we want to try doing is creative finding. we’re in downtown Edinburgh and this city is EXPLODING with different festivals (International Film festival, Jazz festival, carnival, tattoo, edinburgh festival, the list goes on….) and everything during the whole summer! It’s awesome, and so much fun as well, and we get to meet tons of new people! So just some of the things we did this week…
We helped out at a charity event where people were playing football (soccer) to raise money.We played in missionary gear too, it was awesome!
We walked through a park where there’s a festival going on and where lots of kids are out having fun. If we see an american football, we take that chance and go talk to them!
And my mind was also blown this week. So there’s this international event called the Gumball 3000. Look it up. It’s a big rally across Europe, and from what I gathered it was starting here in Edinburgh. Wegot to see some of the nicest cars in the world….I attached 2 of them, but there’s more!!
I know it may not seem like it, but we’re making missionary work outta it and it is really cool cause we get to meet some great people. My favorite thing right now is bus contacting, you just sit on the bus and talk to people! We haven’t found anyone yet, but we know that there are prepared people out there! “For behold, angels are declaring it unto many at this time in our land; and this is for the purpose of preparing the hearts of the children of men to receive his word at the time of his coming in his glory.” Alma 13:24
We just gotta keep pressing forward and the people will come!
Have a fantastic week everyone!
