Tis the Season to be Worldly

Hi everybody! So this weeks email will be a little bit shorter again due to shorter emailing time.
As some of you may have heard, this week was Christmas!!! For missionaries it truly is the most wonderful time of the year because it is the one time of the year we get to be in the world as well as a part of it! First off we get to skype home. We only get to do this twice a year, so it is a really special time. So much fun getting to talk with my parents and brother. I also got to see my puppy!!! The second reason Christmas is amazing is because we get to watch real movies. This year, we watched Minions, Toy Story 3, The Santa Clause, and some other movie that I can't remember the name of. We also got spoiled by members. Got some ribs and two traditional Christmas dinners (turkey, potatoes, desert, the whole shabang)! So much fun! And what's even better is we get to do it again for New Years. First movie on the list is Inside Out. Can't wait to watch it!

Well, now that I have gotten my fun side out of the way, let's get spiritual. My last companion was a really amazing writer and wrote a couple poems that he showed to me. Well, I decided to try my hand at it as well, and this was the finished product. I hope you like it! 

 Cast On Him
Elder Cody Wilson

"Come unto me...and I will give you rest"
These words were spoken by the very best.
I'm on my knees and with the strength I can bear
Begin to cast on Him my every care.

My trials and struggles, my sorrows and woes
The harder I pray, the more the pain goes.

He is perfect, the Son of a God,
yet He willingly walked the path I now trod.
He knows me just like I know my best friend
and by my side He will stay till the end.

I continue to speak, and the worries they fly
as I ponder in amazement that for me He did die.
How did He do it? Endure the pain of it all?
When through the problems I face, I can barely stand tall.

I finish my prayer, and utter amen.
Now it's time to face the world again.
The trial's still there, the struggles and woes,
but the path I now walk, I don't walk it alone.

He's by my side, sharing the load
as we trudge, step by step, down that endless road.
We walk together, with me on His right
for His yolk is easy, and His burden is light.

Prayer List
-David Grant

Thank you all for being amazing! And love and miss you tons! Stay awesome and keep moving forward. I will talk to you all in the new year! Happy 2016!!!

It's Christmas!!

Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! Hope you all had a wonderful week before Christmas and that you are remembering why we celebrate this beautiful time of the year.
So, we have a bit of a shorter emailing session today due to the holidays but here are some noteable events from this past week.
First, we got to see our investigator David. Had a really great lesson with him, during which he agreed to prepare to be baptised on January 30th!! He still has a few concerns and issues that need to be worked through, but they aren't anything that some praying and teaching can't fix.
Theoden is still on track for baptism on January 9th. The only issue is getting him to church. He is only 9, so he can't get to church on his own, and he has a lot of family struggles that make it difficult for all of them to make it out. Please pray that he will make it to church this week so that he can make his date!!
Other than that, we have been finding our butts off. Had 3 straight days of nothing but knocking doors, so you can imagine how fun that was. We did find 3 people who are interested though which is great. The only problem is that they are all women, and we can't get in to teach them without a man. Proves to be a bit of a problem.
Prayer List
- Theoden (investigator)
- Lee/Naomi (less active)
- David Grant (investigator)
- David McKinnon (less active)

Thank you all for your love and support and prayers! Hope you have a Merry Christmas, and remember what the greatest gift is. Stay awesome and keep moving forward! Love and miss you all!

Family Reunion and a Sore Butt

Well this week has been pretty strange. We had an All Scotland Conference in Edinburgh this week, so for us up here in Thurso, that meant a lot of travel. We left Wednesday morning at 9 AM and drove for 2.5 hours to Inverness. Once there, we picked up some sisters who took a ferry from their area of Stornoway, and the 5 of us drove 4 more hours to Aberdeen where we spent the night. Thursday, we had to wake up at 4 AM and start the 3 hour drive to Edinburgh. At the All Scotland, we had the privilege of hearing from Elder Patrick Kearon of the 70. It was amazing!! Love getting to hear from general authorities. After the conference, we drove 6 hours back to Inverness and spent the night, and then finished our journey back to Thurso on Friday morning. Needless to say, my butt was super sore from sitting and driving for that long. I would be perfectly fine if I never had to sit in that car again.
Now to explain the first part of my title. Well, for those of you not familiar with missionary traditions, your first 3 months of your mission is the time when you are trained. Your first companion is your trainer and is also your father/mother (depending on if you are an elder or a sister). So, since Elder Blaylock was my trainer, he is my dad. Well, Elder Blaylock went home so I am now a missionary orphan. When I was serving with Elder Scharman he made a proposal: he was going to adopt me as his mission son and he would be my mission dad. I agreed and we had a weird adoption ritual that involved weird forms of oodoov (don't ask), fire, and string, and just like that, I had another mission dad. Well, at the All Scotland, we were reunited!! It was so great seeing him again and catching up. It's amazing how close you can get to someone when you spend 24/7 with someone for 3 months.
Sadly, this week doesn't seem too exciting. Lots of finding in the schedule, so hopefully we start seeing some growth here in Thurso. Oh yeah, before I forget, we got our moves call last night. I will be staying in Thurso with Elder Thueson for another transfer. Should be fun!

One more thing...

Before I forget..... the church has recently released a new video for Christmas called A Saviour is Born. It is a short two minute video about Jesus Christ and how He is our Saviour. Check it out at christmas.mormon.org!

Potentials for Days!

Howdy all! This week was actually fairly good in terms of the work!

First off, we were able to meet with Theoden (our 9 year old investigator) and teach him again. He is solid and should be right on track for his January 9th baptismal date!! 

We also had another good lesson with our investigator David. We brought up baptism, but he has a couple of concerns that seem a little bit challenging to overcome, but we will get there eventually! Next major step is to get him to church!

Got a new investigator this week named Shevonne. She is the mother of 3 and is currently in the process of finding a new faith (perfect timing)! Taught her the Restoration and she said that it all makes sense, so that is a really good sign. We also discussed baptism with her and she said that she is willing, but wouldn't commit to a date right there. Either way, super good!

Took our weekly trip to the Orkney Isles this week and after hours upon hours of finding, we found a super solid potential investigator named Rhona. She said her dad used to be involved with the Mormons and that she loves learning about new religions. We went back the next day, and her mom answered the door. Usually when that happens, they speak for their kids and say they aren't interested. However, she surprised us. She said Rhona was really looking forward to meeting with us, but that she wasn't feeling well and that if we had any leaflets for her to read, she would love them. YES!!!!!! She also said we could come by any time. YES!!!!!!!! We are expecting great things to come from that!
The rest of the week was full of finding, but we did find 3 other potentials. Their names are Karen, William, and Donald. Hopefully we can start seeing some good things start happening in this area. 
This week looks pretty exciting. We are driving down to Edinburgh for an All Scotland conference with Elder Patrick Kearon of the '70. That should be super good! Perks of being a missionary: you get to meet general authorities!

Rock Me Like a Hurricane

Hello all!!! Hope you have all had a wonderful week and a great Thanksgiving (except for the UK people who I email who don't celebrate it)!! This week was pretty uneventful until the weekend.

We were able to find one new person to teach, so that was good. His name is David. He actually approached us when we were shopping and said we could drop by anytime. He has met missionaries before, and even had a baptismal date at one point. Not really sure why he missed it, but hopefully he is still willing. 

We were also able to have two Thanksgiving dinners this week which was great! We were invited over by an American family that lives here in Thurso for one, and then the senior couple that stays on the Orkney Islands fed us one when we were there this weekend as well.

This is where the exciting part comes in. We almost got stranded on Orkney this weekend. We were supposed to be there Friday, Saturday, and then leave Sunday evening. Well, we get a call Saturday night saying that the evening ferry on Sunday was going to be cancelled due to strong winds. In a desperate attempt to make it back to mainland, we caught one at 10 AM Sunday morning. Boy was that a mistake. Winds were about 50 MPH and there were about 5 foot swells that made the boat rock like a rocking horse. Also found out something about myself: I get seasick. I'll let you all decide how fun that 2 hour ferry trip was for me. Naturally, Elder Thueson and I had to go outside on the ferry's sun deck during all of this to get some pictures (which I have attached for your amusement). I hope that is an experience I never have to endure again.

Well, this week looks like it is going to be more finding. We are having our district leader and his companion coming up on Tuesday and Wednesday to help us out a bit, so hopefully we see some miracles happen with that.

Travel, Travel, and more Travel

As you can probably tell from the title of this email, this week was full of travel.

First off on Monday, we traveled 6 hours by car to Aberdeen. We spend the night there, and then traveled another hour and a half to Dundee for a missionary conference. After that, it was back in the car for a 3 hour drive to Inverness, where we spent the night, and then back in the car Wednesday morning for another 3 hour drive back to Thurso.

We then spend a total of 1.5 days in Thurso, and then it was more travelling.

Friday morning we hopped on a 1.54 hour long ferry to the Orkney Islands to go and do some missionary work up there. We were there until Sunday, when we caught another 1.5 hour ferry back to Thurso. 

Overall, it was a pretty boring week. When we weren't in a car or on a boat, we were out knocking doors and talking to people, without seeing too much success. We were also freezing our butts off!! It's been about 4 degrees celsius all week (I'll let ya'll convert that to Fareinheit), and we got snow up in Orkney on Saturday. Everyone keeps blaming it on me since I am from Minnesota. 

Well, that was pretty the much week. Oh yeah, I also celebrated my b-day! Thanks to my mom and FB, everybody up in Orkney knew that it was my b-day, and that branch threw me a little party, complete with food, cake, and a small gift from the branch. So nice!!! It was much better thna knocking doors in the cold all day I can tell you that.

Prayer list

Thank you all for all your love and support! I am grateful for each and every one of you and the role that you have played in making the person I am today! Love and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!

Thurso In A Nutshell

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Hey all! Sorry for the late email, but we had to drive down to Aberdeen for a zone conference we have tomorrow. Yeah it takes so long that we have to leave a day early. Welcome to banishment!

Anyway, here's a low down on Thurso!!
The Area:
The area itself is fairly large, which is why we have a car which I am in charge of driving. It takes us 2.5 hours to get to the nearest set of missionaries. We skype in for district meetings, so the only contact we have with other missionaries is at zone conferences. We also cover some islands off Scotland called the Orkneys. We spend half of our week there with a senior couple, the Reynolds. It is about an hour and a half ferry ride to get there. My first trip over will be on Friday. 

The Branch(es):
So in this area, we actually cover two branches. One is in Thurso and has about 20 members. The one is the Orkneys has 8 members with 1 male in the entire mix. We can spend Sunday in either branch, but usually go to whichever one has more investigators. 

The Companion:
Elder Thueson is from Murray, Utah. He has been out for about a year (came out at the same time as Elder Scharman) and has been in Thurso for 6 weeks. He loves BYU and Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Seems like he is going to be fun to work with. 

That is pretty much all I have time for. I apologize profusely if I did not respond to your email, but since we are doing it so late, they only gave us an hour each. Sorry about that. I promise I will make it up to you all next week! 
Prayer List
- Billy/Chevonne (investigators)
- Darren/ Kelly (investigators)
- Lee/Naomi/Theodene (less active/less active/investigator)
- Neil (less active)
Thank you all for your prayers! Love and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!!

On Top of the World

Hey all!! Sorry for the late email, but we had a super busy day yesterday, so we had to move emailing to today.

Well, we got our moves call on Sunday. Verdict is: I am leaving Falkirk. 

I am being moved to Thurso, which is the second most northern area in Scotland behind Lerwick. It actually snows there in the winter and gets really cold. Oh joy. Should feel just like home. We have a car (which is a major plus). I am also far enough north that I might get to see the northern lights. Sweet!! For 3 days out of every week, we catch a ferry to the Orkney Islands and do missionary work there. While we are there, we stay with the senior couple, Elder and Sister Reynolds. We also cover two branches: the one in Thurso, and the one on the Orkney Islands. Pretty cool!

The only downside to this area is that it is literally banishment. It takes us 2.5 hours to drive the nearest set of missionaries. Eew.

I will be serving with Elder Thueson. I don't know much about him, except that he is from Utah, and that he came out at the same time as Elder Scharman. 

So, I will officially be leaving Falkirk tomorrow at 5. I catch a train to Edinburgh and meet up with other missionaries heading that way. From there we catch a 3 hour train to Aberdeen, getting in at about 10 at night. I will spend the night at the zone leaders flat. On Thursday, we start the drive at 10 AM up to Thurso and will actually arrive at 4 in the afternoon. It will basically take me 24 hours to get there. How fun is that?!?!

I am really sad to be leaving Falkirk and Elder Scharman. Although it has been tough and stressful, I have learned a lot, both from the area and from Elder Scharman. I am also sad that I may not get to be here for Michael and Angela's baptism on the 28th. We are going to talk to President Donaldson and see if we can't get permission for me to drive down for it. Fingers crossed!

Thank you for all your prayers and support! They mean a lot!!

Random Title That Nobody Cares About...

November 2, 2015

Well this week I actually have time to write out a group email! WOOHOO!! Yay for better time management!

This week was pretty dang good! Michael and Angela are doing wonderfully! We committed them both to a baptismal date again, this time of November 28th. We actually had them choose a date and pray about it, and they both came out with the same date which was pretty cool. They are awesome! I love them so much. 

We also saw Martin again this week. He is doing great as well. He as shown a very genuine desire to be baptised, so we are going to commit him to date of January 5th, probably the next time we see him. 

We have been having trouble getting in contact/seeing the rest of our investigators, so that's rather bothersome. However, we have been finding some potentials as well, so hopefully they really are interested. 

This week we had a branch Halloween party. I dressed up as Santa and Elder Scharman was my elf. Got a lot of strange looks that night. Michael, Angela, and their son Mark came, as well as two less actives, Andrew and Peter. Next step for those two is to get them coming back out to church. The biggest problem is transportation because almost nobody has a car in this country. It is usually just the bus or walking. So annoying. 

We also had a fireside at the mission home last night for investigators and new members, so we went with Michael and Elaine (Angela was working). It was really good, and Michael really felt the Spirit. 

Also, found out that somebody that I found when I was in Dundee got baptised this last week. Her name is Josie, and I just stopped her on the street. I only had the chance to teach her a couple of lessons, but it's still great knowing that I helped somehow in that process!! 

Thank you all for your prayers and emails! They mean a lot! Love you and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!

Well....not gonna lie, but this week kind of sucked. Lots of stress induced by investigators, recent converts, and branch members. Can't really go into a lot of it, but it is slowly working itself out. One thing I can share is that Martin (our deaf investigator) came to church! Kerry, the branch member who knows BSL, interpreted for Sacrament and gospel principles, but she left us to fend for ourselves in priesthood. We didn't do horribly, but we eventually gave up and just started talking to him about random things. Whoops. He admitted that he didn't understand a lot, but he said he felt good and that's what matters most.

So this week we had Zone Interview Training, and one of the commitments was to share our testimony with our family. I figured since I can't write about a lot, I would just share it with all of you!

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's church restored once again on the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God as a prophet to restore that church and translate the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is the most correct book and any man can get closer to God by reading it and living by its principles. I love the Book of Mormon and the lessons it has taught me and the Spirit it brings into my life. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He performed the great, last sacrifice so that we can be forgiven of our sins and return to live with our Heavenly Father. This is not just a belief that I have, but a knowledge. I have received a spiritual witness from the Holy Ghost that all these things are true, and that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Anyone who wishes to know these things can! They need only pray and ask God with a sincere heart and with real intent. God is our Heavenly Father, and He loves us more than we can ever comprehend. He wants us to return to live with Him, and He has shown us the pathway to do so! I love this church and the everlasting happiness it has brought me, and I want to share it with the world! That is why I am serving a mission! I say all these things in the name of our Saviour and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, amen!

Something new I wanted to try was to make a prayer list of people who could use some extra prayers. If you could please pray for them, that would be wonderful!

Prayer List-
1) Michael and Angela
2) Martin
3) Elaine
4) Andrew 
5) Mark

Thank you all so much for the love and support! Sorry for no pictures this week! I will do better! Have a great week! Love and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!

Stress to the Max

                                                                                                                                   October 12, 2015
This has been one of the most stressful weeks of my mission!

First off, we finally had THE LESSON with Michael and Angela. Yes, we taught them the Law of Chastity and told them they either need to get married or move out. Angela took the marriage part really well. Michael....not so much. They are both praying a lot to know what to do, and for now, we have removed their baptismal date until they figure it out. Elder Scharman and I were both a little worried that they might drop us after this lesson, but we are seeing them tonight, so no worries! On the bright side, Michael has successfully completed the stop smoking program and has gone one week smoke free! He is so good!

We did have a really lesson with Ali this week! We finally got him to pray at the end of the lesson, and the Spirit was so strong. He had to stop in the middle of his prayer because he felt it and didn't really understand what it was. 

Other than that, we have just been trying to reconnect with our investigators. We should be seeing our deaf investigator this week, so wish us luck there. We did have  ton of potentials this last week, but all appointments fell through.

We also got two referrals from mormon.org. Both turned out to be fake, because they were referred by their friend as a joke. One was a hardcore Protestant, and the other a devil-worshipper. Please do not refer missionaries to your friends over mormon.org as a joke!!! It wastes our time and we do not appreciate the thought!

The most annoying thing that happened this week was that Elder Scharman and I organized a Family Home Evening activity for the branch. Only 4 of the 50 active members showed up, and two of them were the Ladles. The other two were the branch mission leader and his son. Talk about a waste of time. Our branch mission leader publicly shamed the branch on Sunday, which I did kind of appreciate.

Today, the Ladles drove us to go see Blackness Castle. It used to be a prison, and was used in World War II as a bunker of sorts. It was pretty cool! I have attached some pics.

Well, here's to hoping this week is better than last. Prayers for Michael and Angela would be much appreciated! 

Love and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!

General Conference - Part 2

                                                                                                                               October 5, 2015
This week was full of wonderful things, but still had a few downs.

The most notable down is sickness. There is a nasty cold going around the mission and it finally hit Falkirk! I have felt pretty miserable all weekend. Scottish colds are nothing like American colds. They are much like the people: harsh, stubborn, and very difficult to get rid of. But, got some medication and am still doing the Lord's work. 

In other news, our investigators are doing wonderfully! Michael has started the stop smoking programme in order to be prepare for baptism. He went all last week and only smoked 2 cigarettes. Usually he smokes a couple packs! Great start! Angela is doing great as well. Both are reading from the Book of Mormon and are praying. They should hit their November 7 date with no problem. We were also able to get back in contact with Andrina and Demi. We will be seeing Demi this week, but Andrina is getting ready to go on holiday so she wasn't able to meet. Sad day. Also haven't been able to meet with Martin. Our friend who knows BSL, Kerry, hurt her arm and was unable to go out with us. We are still in contact with him though so that's good. Prayers for all these people would be very much appreciated!

Got to watch my second General Conference while on my mission! My favorite talk was probably Elder Stanfill's! No matter how dark our doubt may seem, we choose how long and hard it affects! Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith! I can promise you all the Church is true as much as the Book is blue! 

Last P-day we got to go to the Falkirk wheel. Don't ask me it's purpose, but it was pretty cool to see! Not super exciting, but it was something to do. 

Today officially marks the beginning of the new transfer! It's looking like it should be pretty good! Thank you all for your prayers and support! Love and miss you all. Stay awesome and keep moving forward!

Revelation is Great!

And just like that, another moves call has come and gone. And the verdict is.....Elder Scharman and I will both be staying in Falkirk. Not too surprised about it since we both just got here. I am super excited to be staying as well for reasons you will find out as you read on!

Our investigators our doing great....at least the one's that we were able to meet with. 

Michael, Angela, and their son Mark were all able to make it to church yesterday and we had a great lesson with them on Saturday about the Plan of Salvation. Then the greatest thing happened....both have committed to be baptised on the 7th of November!!! It's great that I get to stay, because I will be here for that! YAY!!!!

We also found two new investigators this week. First is Demi. She is 17 and her mom is actually a less active member. Met with them and she has shown a desire to be baptised and come to to church. SWEET!! Second is Grant. He is the husband of a member. He has met with missionaries before, but just lost his fire along the way. He has agreed to be taught again, so please pray for him.

This week, I got to go back to Glagow! Elder Scharman had a doctor's appointment there, so naturally I had to go with him. It was so great to be back in the big city. It was Elder Scharman's first time, so I got to show him around a little bit. Not gonna lie, got a little bit area homesick. I kind of miss Motherwell. 

That's really all the exciting news of the week. This next week is general conference and I couldn't be more excited!! 2 (maybe 3) new apostles and a chance to hear the prophet. What more could you ask for??

Looking forward to another great transfer here in Falkirk! Lots of good things are in store waiting to happen! Thank you for all your prayers! Love and miss you all! Stay awesome and keep moving forward!
