26/01/15 - Burns Night‏

Hi everyone!

I've finally tasted my first Haggis. Yesterday evening Sister Newberry had all of us over for Burns night. She fed us Cullen Skink, Haggis, tatties, neeps and for dessert we had raspberry pie with Scottish shortbread cookies (check out the pics)! I thought Haggis contained sheep stomach, but actually they used to cook it inside the stomach. I've been told that they have stopped doing that now... I enjoyed it though, it reminds me of meatloaf with extra pepper.

Last week the Milton Keynes Sisters found one of our former investigators that Elder Judy and Elder Smith put on baptismal date on the street! Elders Judy and Smith lost contact with him all of a sudden for a few months and it turns out that he had a collapsed lung! We taught him The Restoration last week and he believes it's true. He wants to change his life, but he has serious Word of Wisdom problems. We have set goals to stop drinking coffee and tea and to half the number of cigarettes. We got his input for his baptismal date and he said he thinks about a year until he's ready. We managed to get it to half a year and his date is now the 13th of June, because it's his birthday. Elder Zarse our zone leader wasn't to happy about it, but we have set goals to help him with the Word of Wisdom. It was a miracle that the Sisters found him and now he's back on date! 

I'm grateful the Lord leads those who are prepared to the missionaries. It is through our faith in Jesus Christ that this great work is moving forward. Being a missionary is rewarding and is helping me to have an increase of love towards our brothers and sisters.

D&C 64:34 Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days.
