Family and Friends!!
Hello Family and Friends!!
This week has been awesome. Nothing in particular really made it awesome. Besides moves call yesterday and being able to watch the First Presidency’s Christmas Devotional on Sunday night!!
So Sister Anjain and I are BOTH STAYING IN STIRLING for another transfer!!! That was a complete surprise. This will be our 4th transfer together. That’s my record!! It’s also my record for staying in an area!! But I’m so excited. It means we’ll get to enjoy Christmas and New Years with people that we already know. The next transfer call is on January 29th so unless something crazy happens, we’ll both be here for a while yet.
I love Christmas. And so the Christmas Devotional was amazing. And just before we watched it, we found out we were both staying so that was great. We took some pictures with all the people who came to the church to watch it. We have to watch it at a different time than it was recorded because it was recorded at nighttime last Sunday. Which means it would have been really really early Monday morning. If we watched it live. So we had it set up at the church and we got to watch it from there.
But anyway, not much else has been happening!! I’m just so happy to be staying in Stirling for another little bit.
Love you all!!
I cannot believe that it has already been a year since I came to Scotland. The day that marked exactly a year was just this past Friday. December 2, 2016. And I love my mission. I love the people I’ve met so far. I love the gospel, I’ve already grown so much. And I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months have in store for me!!
Anyway, we had some fun this week. For one, we set up our Christmas tree. It was already in the flat with all the decorations. But we had to buy the lights and tinsel for it. But it makes it so cute. What is hilarious is that it is a bright pink Christmas tree. But we are the first sisters to ever live in this flat. Which means that it has been elders before us this whole time with a bright pink Christmas tree. Haha.
We were able to be in Edinburgh twice this week! Once for exchanges on Wednesday with Sister Sams and Sister Muller- which was so much fun!! We saw so many miracles. And it was crazy because I saw a former investigator that I’d taught this time last year in that exact area!!
But we were in Edinburgh again on Sunday for a mission home fireside. Which was amazing as always. I got to see so many people and it was just great.
The highlight of my week was Hayley’s baptism. We have been teaching Hayley for 3 months now. And she finally made the decision to be baptized. And it was beautiful. She was so happy. She doesn’t smile much in pictures but she was beaming throughout the whole day and the whole day afterward.
But again, love you all!!! I hope you are all enjoying December, the season of Christmas!!

I hope you all have been enjoying the colder weather!! It certainly has dropped quite a bit out here in Scotland. What makes it worse though, is the wind. Because obviously Scotland is on an island. So we are surrounded by water and located fairly far north. So it gets cold and windy from the ocean. But it’s absolutely beautiful!!
