Words from Elder Bradshaw in Scotland

Hello everyone back in the states!! Hope you're all looking forward to Thanksgiving, like I would be... Haha luckily we have some American members here that are making us Thanksgiving! But anyway, this week has been quite intersting! Back on Wednesday, another Elder and I were walking around this city called Dundee, talking to people, while we waited for our companions to come up from Ireland. It was fun... even though we got lost... hahaha it was quite the adventure!! Word to the wise, carry a map with you when you're in an area where you have no idea where things are... But it was fun! Got my new companion! Elder Reeder from South Africa! He's a champ! But other than that, it was a pretty quiet week! Still working! Had a really cool study this week about the enabling power of the Atonement! Most everyone knows about the forgiving part of the Atonement, but how many of us understand the part of the Atonement that is to make us better? It's called grace! I'm sure a lot of you have heard other religions talk about how Christ's Grace is sufficient. Well that's true, but they're missing a little part of that... Christ Grace IS sufficient, after all WE can do! It's important for us to rely on the Lord! But it's also extremely important that we do OUR 100%! Everyone has a different 100%. But in the end all of our 100%, needs Jesus Christ in order to actually be at the 100% God wants us to be at!

Sorry if all that was a lot of rambling, but it's really amazing when you realize how important both sides of the Atonement are! Anyway, love you all! Have a great week!
