Doctrine and Covenants 90:24 Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant wherewith ye have covenanted one with another.

Tuesday: after p-day was over we went and taught Billy & Stuart and just shared with them our purpose! We also had scripture study class, which is always good, it's nice to see ward members take time to come out, and it seems they really enjoy it! 

Wednesday: We went and visited Nan & Morag a family in the ward who we help and Morag is less active so we are trying to work with her! We were going to walk Abby- but Abby hurt her paw!:( so no abby for a couple weeks till it heals! Then we visited Sister Crossbee and did service for her! We went and tried by some less-actives that the Bishop asked us to see as well!

Thursday: After Weekly Planning we went to the town and talked to lots of nice people! We had dinner with the Gilardis and we taught Chang-Ping! Well he english isn't very good, so we skyped the China town Elders and they taught him! It went really good, he has lots of questions but loves learning! He goes back to China in we are trying to help him progress as much as possible! Then he'll go and study in the states for a year. 

Friday: We went and dropped by Sister Adamson but she wasn't in, so we went and taught Louise-we sat down and explained all of the Book of Mormon and the Restoration. After the lesson, she said she was excited to read it! We went to the Easter Missionary Choir-which was amazing! They travel and sing all over Scotland/Ireland. The spirit was soo strong! After the Langs took us to KFC, which was good because I was starving! The Langs are so kind, and I'm feel grateful to serve around such wonderful people! 

Saturday: We had to do paperwork, and update things at the church, and after that we figured we'd try by a less-active in an area of Ayr we have never travelled too, we thought about 45 minute bus journey...well after being on the bus for 1 1/2 hours, we had to get off and turn around to make it to Sister Cooks in time for dinner...a long day on the bus, but we did talk to lots of great people! After dinner with Sister Cook, we went and reviewed the restoration with Chang-Ping, we got Chinese words and did a visual, he was so grateful! And seemed to understand a lot better! 

Sunday: Church was good! Chang-Ping rode his bike despite the rain and was there! Stuart and Billy came! And it was the Easter service all centred on Jesus Christ! And after we had a munch and mingle! It was a great service! And in Priesthood/Relief Society they showed Because He lives! IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT DO IT!! it's amazing! We had light lunch with the Deweys. Bishop Dewey and 2 of his sons are going to Salt Lake on Thursday-so I told them where to eat! haha, we visited with the Newalls! They are both very good! Then we travelled to Irvine to spend the night at the STL's. Sister Johnson is going to stay with us until Tuesday because her companion Sister Martin is in the Easter concert!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Mosiah 23:10 Nevertheless, after much tribulation, the Lord did hear my cries, and did answer my prayers, and has made me an instrument in his hands in bringing so many of you to a knowledge of his truth.

Monday: We went to the Colbournes for dinner. They fed us so much food! And have such a great spirit in there home, it is quite lovely. We did some finding in town! We got to talk to this really cool man, who is not interested because he is a priest for the Church of Scotland, but he was very nice, and we had a good discussion. 

Tuesday: We had Zone Conference...Those are always really nice. We talked about having the Holy Ghost in our lives. Because we need the spirit to teach, find, live..haha everything. We got to see Because He Lives. Oh man! The church did an amazing job! I think they release it this week! Go check it out!!!! #becausehelives! It is so amazing! 

Wednesday: We got to walk Abby, oh and the sun was out! It was beautiful, people are WAY more friendly when the rain isn't beating down! So it has been very good! I haven't wore tights ALL WEEK!!:) I hate tights. But Sister Hobbs and I are trying to get a think we would, I  mean we are out ALL day! But besides the point! We had KFC for lunch! Yum. And then we took some biscuits to Sister Edwards-she was having a bad must be so hard loosing someone so close to you! We dropped by and she was missing her husband Roy, he died 18months ago from cancer. We are really working with her to come back to church and rebuild her testimony! Then we went and dropped by Louise-she is very lovely, and hopefully we will be able to see her at church, when her health gets a little better! We had the Langs for dinner, which is always nice. They make me feel right at home! I love them! We talked about Christ and the important role he plays in our lives! I love Easter time because everyone becomes more focused on Christ! 

Thursday: We went to lunch with Sister Walker-she is so lovely. She always gives us junk food (that we don't need) and she gives us shampoo and body wash, etc. She is soo nice. We then had weekly planning. And went to Dinner at the Gilardis! We had a Relief Society Party, Sister Hobbs is soo funny, we made everyone laugh by our table design! 

Friday:  We went and walked by the River Ayr, it is a good place, lots of people walk there dogs and what not.  We talked to this group of people from the New Life Church, they were so friendly (they stopped us) and asked us about what we believed. It is always nice to talk to friendly people! We had dinner at the Newalls-they are so nice and lovely! They are just some of the nicest people you'll ever meet! 

Saturday: We went and helped Nan and her daughter clean and go through clothes. It was really nice to build that friendship. We went and tried by a referral, although she wasn't interested we invited her to the Missionary Easter Concert! Which is Missionaries throughout the mission, travel and sing around Scotland! Then after that we had dinner, and then we got to teach Chang-Ping, he is from China, and doesn't speak very good English, so we had the Chinatown Elders skype us, and we are both working with him. He has such a great spirit and desire to learn more! 

Sunday: We taught Primary! We love Primary! After church we went to Bishop Deweys and ate Dinner. When we got back to Ayr, Sister Hobbs, felt very sick, so we went home and took a small nap, and updated the Area Book, and then did some Finding in Town. 

Monday: Yesterday was Zone Development, and I'm sooo sore! Lol, I feel like a whimp, but I was doing high it's mostly my fault. It was a nice day so we spend most of the day outside! It's so nice to just relax! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! xx

D&C 46:30 He that asketh in the Spirit asketh according to the will of God; wherefore it is done even as he asketh.

Tuesday: We taught Young Womens- we made a cake it was a lot of fun! We dropped by the Mackies who seem to always be sick! Seriously though!

Wednesday: We did some finding in town, we had lunch at Stobbs and work on Family Histroy! We went to visit Sister Kerr, but she wasn't home yet, so we waited for her and spoke with her daughter Hope who is super great and very amazing testimony! We had more finding and had dinner! 

Thursday: We went and walked Abby! She is super great and got the chance to talk to Sister Shepards neighbor! Then we had weekly planning! Then we did finding in town the whole night! And forgot about dinner (whoops) but it was an awesome night! We got a couple numbers and contact info for some super cool people!!!:)

Friday: So we go to Coylton and did service for Sister Crossbee, then we go to talk a bus to Drongan (10 mins away on a bus) we wait over an hour then this older man comes up and tells us the bus drivers are on strike! WHAT?! So we (of course) believe him...we call Sister Walker and make an attempt to try and explain we can't make it, by this time we are already 30 minutes we go to the Sharkey (because I REALLY had to use the toliet) and we stop at a gas station and get food, then we find a bus heading back into town...we are slightly confused but grateful for the bus, so we get to the bus station and ask Are the bus drivers really on strike?!?! Of course not...apparently one bus broke down..or we have no idea what that man was saying...oh well. We went and did finding in town and then visited Sister Edwards. She is so lovely and always calls us her darlings. It's super awesome! Then we went to KFC (yes. it's true) and then to the Newalls! 

Saturday: We went to Sister Adamsons who is doing good. Then had lunch, then went and did finding in town!! It was good...we talked to a couple super crazy people..but it was good! Then we went home had dinner, started our fast, did our primary lessons, and updated our progress report!

Sunday: Church was great! We had the chance to teach Primary, there were 2 kids and they were great! I taught them how to sing the Latter-Day Prophet song...which was super good, we had a race to see how fast they could go! The kids loved it so much...that we will be teaching next week too! It's good because I love Primary!:) Then we went and did finding on the River Ayr, which is just this big hang out place, then ended up somehow on this road with a couple house..intrigued we chapped them. Okay so we knock on this guys house (it's raining) and he insistently say come in come in. .We are like what? is your wife home? he says yes yes. Soooo we awkwardly look at each other and go inside...we walk in and there is him and his wife, their daughter who later just went upstairs (around age 5) and there 8 year old son, who is handicapped and his brain is about 18 months. okay so we are like, hey we didn't introduce ourselves,we are the missionaries. Anyways they are Roman Catholic, and he sees the Elders walking all the time, and had lots of questions! So we have this great discussion on the Restoration! We gave them a Book of Mormon, and prayed then we left! They are going out of town for a month, but we will go back when they return! IT was AWESOME! So we continued chapping and then did finding, we tried by some friends in white city. Then we came home had dinner and training. 

So my week was crazy awesome! I know the Lord answers my prayers, and I am so grateful to have the knowledge of His church! I love my Savior!! I love you all! Hope you had a great week!!!
