On the Road Again

April 17, 2017

Hello peeps!

This week was a good one! Gary is doing good. He has such a strong testimony and a desire to follow God. On Friday, I got a call from my mission president calling me as a district leader! So that is wild. But he wouldn’t tell me where I was going until Saturday when everyone else got their moves call. I am leaving Fraserburgh and going to Falkirk in the Edinburgh stake! Falkirk is a city just west of Edinburgh. And I will be finishing training Elder Dunn! He has been out one transfer and apparently he is a stud. I am sad that I only had 4 weeks here in Fraserburgh, but I am excited to see what the rest of my mission is going to be like! I have heard a lot of great things about Falkirk from a lot of missionaries so I will let you all know what it is like next week. I will travel tonight and get there tomorrow.
Aberdeen Stake Conference was this weekend on Easter and it was great. Each speaker spoke about each of the virtues mentioned in the Easter initiative by the church. A sister named Sister Ware spoke about compassion. She said “Jesus Christ is not looking for us to be like others, He is looking for us to be like Him.” What can we do in our lives to be more like Him? I love this question. I am so grateful that Christ came to earth, lived, died, and was resurrected. How wonderful it is to know that we will live again.
I love you all and have a great week!
