This week I went on exchanges with the AP’s in Edinburgh, Scotland 🙂 It was super fun! We took a flight on Wednesday morning to Scotland and came back on Thursday Morning. I felt like a business man hahaha. I’ll attach a dope pic of Edinburgh castle. We found some really cool people this week. We taught a man named Edson on Saturday. He is a 62 year old, Brazilian retired PE teacher and volleyball coach! He is a true legend. He is here for 8 months studying English like over 20,000 Brazilians do in Dublin. “My favorite Brazilian city is Dublin” -Elder Worley. He came to church and loved it 🙂 A Hungarian man named Robert to church this week. He met twice with missionaries over 6 months ago and felt pressured to be baptized so he stopped meeting with them. He read the Book of Mormon by himself and finished it on Thursday. Elder Worley sent a church text to all of the potentials in the phone on Saturday and Robert came to church yesterday. He loved it. He doesn’t want to meet with missionaries again just yet, but said he will continue to come to church. He will be also coming to a baptism this Friday. What a miracle!
Happy Fathers Day last week and happy birthday do Dad and Eric!
Ether 2:25 And behold, I prepare you against these things; for ye cannot cross this great deep save I prepare you against the waves of the sea, and the winds which have gone forth, and the floods which shall come. Therefore what will ye that I should prepare for you that ye may have light when ye are swallowed up in the depths of the sea? The Lord will prepare us in every situation. There will be problems and hard times in our lives but the Lord always has a plan.
I love you all! Have a great week.
