Miracle this week–We had 5 investigators at church!!! It was amazing and they all did so well and the branch was super good to them and it was amazing.
Baptism? Not yet. Kevin and Julie are still doing great, but Scottish government is not helpful. Luckily, she will probably be moving end of this week!
I’m thankful for good food and especially American food this week. It is amazing how absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Investigators?!? We have new ones! Euan, Hiadar, and Ashleigh are all new and not much news for them.
Funny story this week…
So, Sunday was Fast Sunday (once a month healthy members of our church fast for two meals as a way to bring our hearts closer to God and to one another). We were walking back to the flat after church and we passed a raspberry bush that had ripe raspberries. So, I just popped a couple in my mouth. Sister Smith was not fasting and slightly questioned me, but not too much. She said, “I do not think those are yours to eat.” And I’m like, “I do not think that they are anyone’s.” Then we got home and she was in the kitchen (she was sick, so no fasting for her) and I came in to share some of the delicious brownies she was eating. Then I said, “No!! temptress!!” And she said, “You already broke your fast by eating raspberries!” To which I respond with, “UGH, NO!! I am sorry Heavenly Father” and walked into the front room. And I walked out to go sit at my desk which is also covered in food temptations. Sister Smith walks in after me as I was about to drink water from a water bottle. She just yells, “Sister Bohman!!” I was shocked with confusion and panic. I angrily spit the water out all over. It was a struggle, but I repented and didn’t eat until dinner.
Our week was good though!
