Surprisingly, this week I have 23 minutes from this moment to write this letter... which is a strange but welcome surprise.
This week we had some surprising success - Elijah, our new investigator from Nigeria, says he is Pentecostal but is not like other Christians - he believes there are other inspired writings out there besides the Bible, like the Dead Sea Scrolls, he mentioned the Talmud, other ''gospels'', etc. and he believes the Book of Mormon could be one of them. He has read the Introduction and the Testimonies in the beginning, and he finds it all very interesting.
Laura, a young university student, kept her return appointment and we taught her about the Book of Mormon in the hallway. She is from a Church of Scotland family, but stopped attending when she came out for Uni. She is eager to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true. She is very humble, and I know the Lord has prepared her for this time to come into the fold.
We also have a new investigator named Peter who is a referral we received from the Whitehall elders. He says he read the Bible twice while in prison, and wants to become a Mormon. He's separated and has 4 kids, two boys and two girls. He seems to be kind of a bit slowed from previous addictions, but he is very genuine and we can have a very intelligent conversation with him. He loves helping disabled people, whether mentally or physically, and he is a really good guy. He has an American bulldog named chaddeus or something like that. :)
We also got move's call and... I'm staying in Bridge of Don! Woohoo! Sister Pugh is leaving the ward though, and Sister Condie is training a new missionary. My friend from back home, now Sister Turner, is coming into the mission... so I hope we get her! Or maybe Sister Solum, another sister in the Aberdeen district, will be able to train her instead. Well, that's all this week! I know God is mindful of us, and gives us our agency not only so we can make mistakes, but also so we can do much good as well!!! :) I love you all!
