Road trip! Road trip! On the LEFT side of the road!

What a crazy week! So we've had Zone Conferences all over Scotland and I've seen a ton! We have a car and I am the driver.  I get to drive everywhere! It's so much fun, I missed driving so much! IT WASN'T EVEN THAT HARD TO SWITCH TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD! We drove to Dundee on Tuesday and up to Aberdeen on Wednesday. It's about three and a half hours to Aberdeen. In the UK, people think that's super far. Coming from America, it felt more like a normal weekend getaway drive for me.   haha
The countryside is BEAUTIFUL here! Oh my gosh, really it's amazing. 

I got to see Sister Esplin and some other sisters from  the MTC!   I've met tons of new missionaries! There's so many great ones out here, I'm happy to get to know them! By October, there will be 26 new sister missionaries in the SIM, and only 2 go home!!

We spent most of the week outside our area, so we didn't get to teach many lessons, but once the craziness dies down things will get back to normal missionary work. We are stationed in the Edinburgh city center and I'm excited to get to know the area better.

Sister DeMille is awesome! We're actually getting another missionary, Sister Paxman, to be in a trio with us until the end of the transfer! It'll be such a party

Sorry no pictures this week, we've been super busy! It's really fun talking at Zone Conferences and getting to call all the Sisters, I'm learning so much about how the mission runs. At Zone Conference, we've been focusing on working with urgency, it's really cool to instruct on and hear how other missionaries do things. 

** Since Megan didn't send any pictures this week....here's a photo of the cleats Erynn was able to get Megan at the Nike outlet sale in Portland.  They will stay here and wait for 13 1/2 months for Megs to break them in!**
Last Monday, we went out and played American Football with the Zone Leaders and President's Assistants. We had a great time, but pathetically, all of us were sore for the rest of the week. We played way too hard but it was nice to  play sports again.

Next week, we'll finish Zone Conferences in Paisley and Glasgow. And then it's almost moves week again! This is such a short transfer, we'll see what happens! Thanks for all the emails, love you!
