My week has been great. Sorry for the short little pathetic email I sent last week. I will update you more now. So General Conference was amazing. My favourite (the computer auto corrects to “English”) talk was Donald L. Hallstrom’s talk in the Saturday morning session. My second favourite was Jeffrey R. Holland’s talk in the Sunday afternoon. They are both such powerful speakers and it was amazing. My favourite line from Elder Hallstrom’s talk was “you can have what you want or you can have something better.” A fun thing that happened from conference is that Patrick Kearon spoke and I got to meet him while I was in the MTC. That was great.
Official moves calls were yesterday and moves day is on Tuesday. I am staying in Dundee but my companion is leaving and I will be training a new missionary! I don’t know who she is yet because we get to meet the trainees on Tuesday and then we are assigned our trainee later in the day. Exciting stuff!!
Dundee is amazing. Walking is crazy. We walk a lot more here than we did in Edinburgh. I decided to see just how much we walk here and my iPod has a pedometer setting on it so I turned that on and tracked our progress. This last Thursday was the day I decided to track and we walked approximately 14 miles. Yes, that is fourteen miles. In one day. Goodness gracious.
My District leader here in the Dundee 2nd Ward who has been moved to be one of the Dundee Zone Leaders happens to be in a boy band called Beyond 5. He can sing really well. If you look up any of his music videos on YouTube, he is the blonde one. He is Elder Crowe but before his missionary days, because missionaries lose their names, he went by Patch. Just a fun little fact for ya’ll. I now have a new District leader, Elder Parsons, and he will have Elder Roylance as a companion. As previously mentioned, I have no idea who my companion will be.
I hope you all have a great week and that you stay healthy!! I know that my Savior lives and that I am sharing his gospel.
I love you all!
