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.
