In Search of New Investigators!

We had a very great Thanksgiving.  I ended up getting a double thanksgiving. We went to a YSA thanksgiving dinner with another team of missionaries. That was pretty fun, but we killed the food so fast. Then on the Friday after we were invited to Thanksgiving at the mission home. It was incredible, would not of even known that it was in the UK. The full line up of thanksgiving food all the way to the yams. Not a bad thanksgiving at all.
   We are currently teaching a lot of frustrating people. Especially because exams are coming up for the students so they can meet less and less. All is well in Zion, because they also have no more lectures so some can meet frequently.
Looking forward to Christmas.
Love you all

Banana anyone?

Christmas is under way!

Hey it is getting pretty cold up here!

    It is dipping below freezing. WOOO! The Christmas market is up and the lights are bright. 
I am trying to learn Chinese to help with our investigators. Haha I know how to say baptism because that is all they need to know. Haha only playing. We are having a good time. We have been struggling with new investigators, because at this point we know everyone at the University's first, last, and dogs name.
    I am getting excited for Christmas and looking forward to thanksgiving as well. We are starting to know all the members. I do love this city!
I hope I do stay for Christmas.
Love you all

Scottish fried chicken anyone?

Training again!

Hello Mama 
    It is starting to cool down plenty. No snow but it could come soon! my new companion is Elder Hinckley from Clinton Utah. He is a tall guy (my first companion that is taller than me). He is really great! Another easy one to train. However, neither of us speak Chinese and we still teach all Chinese! It is fun to try to draw lessons, or use different analogies. We are excited to be serving together in Edinburgh! 

    Im looking forward to Thanksgiving, I hope that we can be with an American family for it. We have some really interesting people that we have met recently. We are hoping to find and teach some new people. 

    We are going to do some shopping today and getting some pizza with the other missionaries!
Elder Hinckley...Greenie!

Winter in Edinburgh

I am staying in Edinburgh! It has been a while since I have been able to stay in an area! I am excited to be staying. Elder Donovan is moving to Dundee, and I will be training again! Another brand new missionary. It should be fun, but I am nervous to have the fate of another bright eyed missionary in my hands. I am pretty sure that I will be staying in Edinburgh until Christmas because they dont normally move people right before Christmas. I heard that Edinburgh has a pretty great Christmas market as well.
    It is starting to cool down a lot here and apparently it could do some snowing this winter! 
Last week was very cool because the sisters in the District baptised a girl. I was able to interview her for baptism and she asked if would baptise her. It was a really cool experience. 
   I do love this city and ward I am looking forward to serving another transfer here!

So long Elder Donovan!!!

Fall in Edinburgh

Busy week this last week! We had a baptism that we had to completely organize because the ward mission leader got released. It was pretty stressful, but it went well. It was a nice service and the mission President was the one who baptized her. It was so nice to see. 
   1 year went by so quickly, looking back on my past 9 transfers is crazy. I have been moving all over this mission and have had some great companions. This Sunday is the moves call... The past 3 moves calls I have moved. So I should be staying, but knowing me Ill move. I want to stay here till Christmas. I love this city.
   It is beautiful here this time of year. Leaves are completely covering the ground. This morning we played soccer in the park for exercise. The sunrise was amazing. 
   We are hoping to carve some pumpkins this evening, which I am so excited for because last Halloween I was in the MTC and did not have the chance to. 

Happy Halloween!!!!!!
Talk to you next week.
