The Rains Came Down, and the Floods Came Up!

Hiya friends! This week was pretty dang good! Most of the week was spent finding (with not so much success), but we were also able to have some solid teaching appointments.

First off we saw Theoden and had a great meeting with him. He is doing so good and should be on track for the 23rd if things keep going the way they are. We will be seeing him again on Thursday, and his dad will be making us some Mexican food (enchiladas if I remember correctly)! Elder Thueson and I are pretty excited for that!!!

We also go to see David twice this week. Had a great Word of Wisdom lesson with him the first time. He seems really ready and willing to make that change, so that was a relief. I always get really nervous teaching that lesson. The second time, we started doing family history with him. We got him all set up with a FamilySearch account and started his family tree. In Falkirk, we lived right next door to the family history missionary couple, so it looks like that paid off. They would be so proud!

Sunday was an interesting day to say the least (and it will explain the title of this post). Saturday night into Sunday, we had really nasty rain storm. Super strong winds and pouring down rain pounding against our window. Driving to church was not fun, as many of the roads were flooding, and it looks like Scotland got some new lochs in their fields. A few families were not even able to make it to church because some of the flooding was so bad. Nobody's house got flooded, thank goodness, but the driving conditions were just not ideal. On the bright side, Lee, Theoden, and his brother, Fraser Lee, were all able to come to church!!! It was so awesome to see them all there, and it seems like they had a good time. 

This week looks busy! We have Zone Interview Training in Aberdeen on Wednesday. This means we will leave Tuesday afternoon, have the meeting Wednesday, and then get back Thursday afternoon. I am going to hate our car after this week. I am looking forward to being around other missionaries though. 3 weeks in isolation can start getting to your head!

Prayer List
