A New Investigator - We Rate 200 Points, "The Collective," and a Church Called Hope!

Heya everyone,

So this week was yet again a slow week. 

Kenny was busy with work and it's been hard to get in touch with some of the other people we've been working with. 

We met with Elizabeth and she is struggling at the moment with lots of things with her family so her heart isn't fully in the Gospel at the moment. 

We did get a new investigator named Allan Blackie though, who we got from the Dumfries Elders. He's a really nice guy who has been through a lot and for a while he was investigating the JW's. 

He said if he could rate us and them by points they'd get 10 points and we'd get 200 haha! 

We also had the Worldwide Mission broadcast in Edinburgh which was very good. 
During the week we went to a town called Peebles and we met this guy named Cliff who told us we could come back. So Saturday we went back out to do some more finding and to try-by and his partner let us in. We scheduled a time to meet with them to teach them and they seem well prepared :)

 Forgot to mention this chapping story. 

So the first day in the week that we went to Peebles, we were chapping and we knocked on this guy's door who's name was Stuart. 

He said he wasn't interested to hear what we have to say because we were from "The Collective". 

He began to monologue about church's being collectives and that Jesus Christ was a "9th-dimensional being". He went on to say that he is a "5th-dimensional being" and that all other reformers were 5th and 7th dimensional beings. 

He said that most people are hovering on the 2nd or 3rd dimension and all of us are trying to access the higher dimensions (except the 4th dimension because information from that one is full of lies and deception so he was probably saying that one is churches.) So yea that's Stuart..... 

Oh I also forgot to mention went to another church called Hope church yesterday which was kinda similar to the church I went to in Galway with Elder Shubin except no "gifts of tongues" going on.:)

Well today is Burns Night so tonight going to be having some haggis, neeps (turnips), and tatties (potatoes)  for dinner.

A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, rarely also known as Robert Burns Day (or Robbie Burns Day or Rabbie Burns Day) or more commonly Burns Night (Scots: Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.

January 25, 1759 to July 26, 1796

Burns was born on a wild and windy night in Alloway on the Ayrshire coast of Scotland, in the family house his father, William, had built with his own hands. Robert was the eldest of seven children.

Robert Burns died in Dumfries on 26th July, 1796, on the same day that his wife gave birth to their ninth child, a son, Maxwell. He succumbed to a form of rheumatic fever, which would have been easily treatable today.  (For information on Robert Burns see )

For more information on Burns Night see:


The Ancient and Royal Burgh of Peebles is a genteel, handsome town on the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders.

The town of Peebles is situated in the west of the Scottish Borders, just 45 minutes away from Edinburgh.

The town pre-dates the reign of King David I (1124-53). The monarchy made many visits in the 15th and 16th centuries - by King James III in particular. Peebles was relatively untouched by the conflict that characterised life in the Borders at that time.
