This last week was pretty uneventful. All of our lessons and appointments didn't show up. All of our investigators had also said during the week they would come to church... none of them did so that sucked pretty bad. Some other things happened this week that were pretty cool.

On Friday a member took Elder Gunson and I to go visit a member who isn't doing well and the drive there was absolutely beautiful. Really pretty Scottish country in the little bit of snow we have right now. The member lives in a place called Pit Lochry. Along the way there is a place called the Queens View. It's absolutely stunning, it's pretty much tucked away in the mountains. We will probably end up going back there this transfer because we want to see all of it out there. The member that took us is also really cool as well so I like hanging out with him a lot.

There is no focus of scripture this week I want to share but I do want to express my thanks for all of the people that support me and my family. I have a firm testimony that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been Restored for modern times. This is the last dispensation and Christ will come again. Prepare yourselves for that day. Read the scriptures, pray and grow your faith. "Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." (Alma 32:21) You will come to know these things are true as the spirit testifies to you, and you act upon the promptings of the spirit.

I love you all and have a good week,

Elder Erik Orchard
