March 2, 2015

Here is the e-mail we got from Mason today . . .

This past week has been a bit crazy. I went on exchanges up to a town called Airdrie. They have a 4-man flat so there are two sets of missionaries so it was flippin' crazy. They have a scale in their flat and I got on the scale and I think I have lost about 30 pounds since I got here. Not much else has happened. We saw Austins on Saturday and they showed us how to make some stuff. One thing they showed us how to make they call Jesus bread. It is flour, milk, and a bit of salt and then they fry it in a pan. It tasted a lot like one of your scones. But then after we had dinner with them they told us that they really didn't like the Cumbernauld ward so they won't be joining the church here :( - but they said they will keep studying and we are seeing them tonight for family home evening. Everyone we have told that to has said that it is weird. But they are planning on moving to Glasgow soon so we may have to send the missionaries to them when they get there.

But then on Sunday, we went and saw a guy we tracted named Peter. We gave him a restoration pamphlet and he said that it got his mind going like nothing before. He also has a friend who lives in Canada who is a member so that is how he first got introduced to the church. We are seeing him again on Wednesday. After we met with Peter, we had dinner at a member's house and we were telling them about the Austins. One of the guys that was there served his mission in South Africa and he said that they sounded like typical white South Africans who are a bit stuck up. So we will just have to see what else happens with the Austins.

(I asked him if he was going to be able to go out and eat or do anything on his birthday) - My birthday is on MANIK (don't know what that stands for) - that is where we go get kebabs for dinner the night before moves call, so Elder Rogers said he would buy me a kebab. It is crazy that I am going to be 20!!

That has been my week - love you and miss you.
