Christmas Skyping, Star Wars and Wishing you A Happy New Year!


This week numbers wise wasn't the best with Christmas and Boxing day being in the way but other than that it was still a great week. 

Found some more people that we hope to see this week before the New Year like a guy named Daniel and we met an older woman named Betty who gave us both each a big granny kiss on the cheek (mission kiss #4 haha). 

Christmas was good with Skyping! Then on Boxing day we got permission from President Donaldson to go see the new Star Wars movie with the whole zone in Stirling! There was about 20 or so of us. It was GREAT!

We weren't able to see the Blacks this week or many other investigators on account of the holiday season being busy. 

On Christmas Eve we went and sang some Christmas carols in the center of Hawick for about a half hour so that was fun. 

Just want to say thank you for all your support and wish you all yet again a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love you,

NOTES from Mom:

Stirling, Scotland

Stirling is a city in central Scotland. The city is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. Stirling is the administrative centre for the Stirling council area, and is traditionally the county town of Stirlingshire. The city is located several miles to the west of the mouth of the River Forth. Historically it was strategically important as the "Gateway to the Highlands", with its position near the Highland Boundary Fault between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands and has been described as the brooch which clasps the Highlands and the Lowlands together.
Its historical position as the nearest crossing of the Forth to the river mouth meant that it attracted invaders. The beast of Stirling is the wolf, which it shares with Rome. According to legend, when Stirling was under attack from Viking invaders, a wolf howled, alerting the townspeople in time to save the town.
Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall (restored 1999) and the Renaissance Palace (restoration completed 2011) within Stirling Castle. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, the Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions, with a service every Sunday.
Stirling is a centre for local government, higher education, retail, and industry. The 2011 census recoded the population of the city as 36,142. The wider Stirling council area has a population of 89,850. The majority of the population is located in its southeast corner, in the City of Stirling and in the surrounding area.
One of the principal royal strongholds of the Kingdom of Scotland, Stirling was created a Royal burgh by King David I in 1130, which it remained until 1975, when the burgh as an administrative unit was abolished. In 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee, Stirling was granted city status.
