Sheep Herding in Scotland

This week was great!
Tuesday was the rainiest day of my mission! I'm not even kidding. We went to Edinburgh for a Zone meeting, then headed back to Stirling for the rest of the day. Man, it was bucketing!! It didn't stop for a single second all day long, I have never been so soaked!
The rest of the week was spent finding and teaching a lot of people. I love being in Alloa ward, the members here are sooooo great! The city of Stirling is small and there are tons of tourists right now! Gonna be honest, I don't know anything about the history of Stirling, but apparently it's pretty famous  because people are coming from all over the world!
Today, we met with our district and hiked around Alva Glen. It was beautiful! I'm with a really fun group of missionaries:  an elder from Cali, my comp from Finland, and an elder from Australia, a brand new elder from Japan, and Elder Keim. (That'll make 11 months serving in the same area as him.)  We had so much fun hiking! There were loads of sheep that we tried to catch, which usually ended with us just slipping and falling all over the place. The trick was to not slip in the sheep was everywhere. Literally everywhere. Ya, it was a good day. Then we went and got a chippie afterwards, so it's been a good day!
Love you all, have a great week!
