Subject: Elder Holland Scotland Stake Conference
Hello everyone! Wow, another week gone, can you believe it? Time has
never gone at a faster pace. We had a pretty good week this past week,
we’ve been working really hard, and I’m hoping to see the fruits of
our labours very soon. The main thing we have been doing is trying to
build our teaching pool. We have been street contacting like mad men,
talking to everyone we see. I’m trying to finish stronger than ever
before, I really want to leave knowing that I made Lincoln a better
place. Elder Jones and I are still having a really good time together,
we laugh all the time and enjoy working together. I’m still just way
happy, and keep getting more and more excited to see everyone. I’m
trying not to think about it too much…
Let’s see, I can’t really remember much of what happened this week. I
just know that we have met SO many different people, it’s been crazy.
Off the top of my head, we have talked to people from Ireland, Angola,
Congo, Lithuania, Poland, East Timor, Nigeria, Russia, Spain,
Cameroon, Latvia, Germany, St Vincent, China, Thailand, Philippines,
Portugal, Dubai, America, Iran, and various places throughout England.
There are other places, but I can’t remember all of them. As you can
see, there are people from almost every continent here! It is so
amazing being able to be surrounded by so many cultures, I have
absolutely loved that about my mission. I love meeting people from
everywhere and being able to learn so much about places throughout the
entire world. And to think that you could fit the entire country into
Other than that, we have still had our main focus on Kevin. He is
doing so well, I love that guy so much. He came to church yesterday,
where we had a special broadcast stake conference. So Elder Holland
was in Scotland yesterday, and he spoke at a stake conference there
that was broadcast throughout all of Northern Europe. It was very cool
to see him in a different setting than the very formal General
Conference. He is such an amazing man, he spoke mainly about the Book
of Mormon, and bore such powerful testimony as a special witness on
its divinity. It was awesome to see him speak, it was honestly one of
the best talks I have ever heard. I love the Book of Mormon so much.
It made me really excited for Thursday, where we will have a mission
conference in Birmingham, where he will be there to speak to our
mission! It’s gonna be so great, I can’t wait.
Well I love you guys so much, thank you for all of your constant love
and support, hope you have a great week!
Love, Elder DeBeikes
We do a lot of street contacting along this road
