So this week was an amazing week, full of blessings! Monday we travelled to Glasgow to meet up with our new companions. Sister Parker and I got a ride from the Glasgow STL's to our flat in Ayr, it's always really strange for me to get a new companion or Area. We went out and did some grocery shopping at like 7 o'clock at night, Sister Parker is going home in like 4 months so she's on the what us sister missionaries call "6 month's to sexy diet". We are sharing food so we'll see how this happens with the Dinner Appointments.Tuesday was the first day of missionary work together, and we started off great with getting a lesson with one of the Heroin Addicts James. Robert the other one dropped us because he likes Mass better. That evening on the way to the church to meet up with the Bishop I realized that we locked ourselves out... 😥 Oh my goodness... The sisters before me did the same thing before and so did the elders before the sisters. Now that we have really nice new windows, it's impossible to break back into the flat the same way. Luckliy a few weeks ago I remembered that Sister Lawson and I dulipcated the keys and gave the spare ones to the District Leader who's in Kilmarnock. We called the Zone Leaders and the District Leader and so the Zone Leaders, who are in Paisly had to drive to Kilmarnock and then to Ayr to Drop off the Key's, They had to call the AP's to get permission to do so. It was SO EMBARASSING. The meeting with the Bishop went well, he's really excited about Sister Parkers enthusiasim and is concocting a plan to make the Members better Ward Missionaries. He listed all of the things that stop the members and narrowed it down to three things; Motivation, Time and Fear.
