This week was AMAZING. Elder Stevens and I set the record for most total lessons in a week for the Galashiels area. 12 total lessons! The past 4 weeks we got 5 or less. Scotland is a hard country to preach the gospel in, but with a little hard work and a lot of the Spirit, miracles happen! We found 2 new investigators this week! Elizabeth and Tracy. We knocked on Elizabeth’s door and we ended up talking to her for 50 min about basically everything we believed in. She agrees with everything we taught. We saw her again later in the week and she said she told her dad she might join the Mormon church. CRAZY. She has 3 daughters and they are all super nice and fairly interested as well. Tracy lives next door to Elizabeth and we knocked on her door and talked to her for 30 min! She is a recovering alcoholic and is angry at God for taking her 20 year old son. She has trust issues and has been meeting with Jehovah’s Witness’s for 6 years and has never invited them into her house! She is really nice. We taught her about the Holy Ghost and Prayer and she is really happy to listen to us. We also taught James again about the Book fo Mormon and revelation. James is part of a Baptist bible study on Sunday nights. We usually go, but the past month has been busy on Sundays. I finally got to go yesterday and it went really well. We talked about the Armor of God in Ephesians 6:10-18. Elder Stevens and I snuck in some restored truths when talking about it. Everyone agreed with basically everything and I learned so much!
