A Week in Aberdeen

THE SIM SQUAD Heading to Aberdeen this week

Elder Penman at Dunnottar Castle
We spent the whole week, Monday to Sunday in Aberdeen. It was so fun. 
We stopped at some sweet castle called Dunnottar Castle.  It's pretty Legendary.  

I really enjoyed being up in Aberdeen. We worked our tails off this week, which resulted in some incredible miracles. 

  One miracle that had happened was we drew the picture of the Plan of Salvation on the street and taught people about it. A man came up and started being contentious. He started arguing with me. I just sat there and took it. Then the spirit of discernment overcame me and I could tell what the man's struggles were and my awareness  sharpened. He got a little bit more aggressive and the Still Small Voice told me to testify with boldness, so I did. I can't tell you exactly what I said but the sum up is I, through the name of Jesus Christ, testified of the Living Jesus Christ and how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has has the fullness of the Gospel. The mood changed and he calmed down and took our number and left. That night he called apologized and asked to meet up. So the Aberdeen Elders met with him today after we left. I truly love the Power and Authority that comes in and through the Holy Spirit.

  This week I really have never been hit with so much anti or bad comments against the Church. I have never had to rely on the Witness that I received when I was 16 as much as I did this week. I testify in the name of Jesus Of Nazareth that I know that Our Father in Heaven is real, and He loves us. I know that in reality, that He and  his Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith in the Sacred Grove, in upstate New York.  

   I will let you know where I will be all this week on Sunday!(:

About Dunnottar Castle:
Dunnottar Castle (Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Fhoithear, "fort on the shelving slope"[1]) is a ruinedmedieval fortress located upon a rocky headland on the north-east coast of Scotland, about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south of Stonehaven. The surviving buildings are largely of the 15th and 16th centuries, but the site is believed to have been fortified in the Early Middle Ages. Dunnottar has played a prominent role in the history of Scotland through to the 18th-century Jacobite risings because of its strategic location and defensive strength. Dunnottar is best known as the place where the Honours of Scotland, the Scottish crown jewels, were hidden from Oliver Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. The property of the Keiths from the 14th century, and the seat of the Earl Marischal, Dunnottar declined after the last Earl forfeited his titles by taking part in the Jacobite rebellion of 1715. The castle was restored in the 20th century and is now open to the public.
