Hello friends, family, and other random people that read this! Sorry this email is a day late. It was another random bank holiday in Scotland and the libraries were close, so it was a bit difficult to do the bulk of our emailing.
This last week was a bit disappointing, unfortunately. We got to see most of our investigators, but a lot of them seem to have lost the original fire that they had when they first started learning about the gospel. It doesn't help that it has been really hard for us to find some new investigators either. Sunday was a bit of a let down as well. We had 4 people who had told us that they would be coming to church, and of those 4, a total of 0 came. I guess that is just how missionary work goes: it builds up, and then without a moments notice, all comes crumbling down.
This week is going to be a lot of reconstructing the area. We are working on getting back in contact with some of our investigators, as well helping those that we do have, relight that fire and get them excited about the gospel again. We also do have a couple more potential investigators we hope to be meeting with, so praying really hard that all goes well there.
There are some pretty exciting things happening this week as well. On Wednesday, we will be having an All Scotland conference in Edinburgh. This is where all the missionaries in Scotland come together, and we get an amazing spiritual feast. This meeting will also be really fun, because I will get to see 5 of my 8 companions, a couple of whom I haven't seen in almost a year now! I am super stoked!
