Exchanges and St. Andrews Golf Course

We went to district meeting and learned a lot about listening and how you can really get to know people. I went on exchanges with Elder Parry and it rained hard, all day. We tracted a lot and talked to so many people on the bus. One experience, we walked by a car with the window rolled down. After we walked by, I knew we needed to go back. I instantly turned around and walked right up to the window and knocked on it. It was man who had lost contact with the missionaries a few years ago and was actually thinking about coming to the church. It's so amazing what the Spirit can do if you follow the subtle promptings right away and not thinking about why you don't want to do it and give up your personal affairs. Amazing things happen.. Just like in (Alma 31:37,38) 
37 And after that they did separate themselves one from another, taking no thought for themselves what they should eat, or what they should drink, or what they should put on.

 38 And the Lord provided for them that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst; yea, and he also gave them strength, that they should suffer no manner of afflictions, save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ. 
The sons of Mosiah, Alma and Amulek and a few others.  They take no thought of themselves and the Spirit gives them strength beyond their own. The things that usually would get in the way or cause them to have fear were taken away by the Spirit. You all should read about them... ITS SO GOOD!

I went on exchanges With Elder Lattin up in Dundee. We got to street contact in St. Andrews. It so amazing there. We talked with so many American people. We have such weird accents. It blows my mind that we have an accent. We say our R's so weird. We got to see the St. Andrews Golf Course. It was so cool.

We are moving K___ and J___'s baptismal dates to next month... 

The Mother's Day Skype home was great... even though I felt like I had just talked to all of you a few days before (at Christmas)!! Time is flying, but it's the best time of my life! 

God is real... He loves all of you so much. Don't any of you ever feel you are not worthy to feel loved by our Heavenly Father because He truly loves you more than you can comprehend!

Below is a still of a video of Elder Penman hitting a ball on a May 4 P-day outing at Pitreavie Golf Course in Fife.  Scotland is the birthplace of golf, although Elder Penman says his game is "rubbish."
