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!
