Stowing Away to the Isle of Stornoway!

Missionaries in the Dundee Ward

Big Hill in Dundee 

Sister Cardon  loves this view!
Sister Cardon has exciting news today! She is being sent to the Isle of Stornoway, or sometimes know as the Isle of Lewis. It is above Scotland and has a population of 5000 with an LDS population of 50! The only missionaries on the Island will be Sister Cardon and her new companion Sister Lewis along with one senior missionary couple. She said the whole Island is religious and they even print in the local paper for residents not to talk to the missionaries. She will get to fly there and then fly to Glasgow a few times in each transfer for conferences. However, all other meetings and conferences will be via Skype!

Sister Cardon is very excited even though her Zone Leader announced the day before tranfers, "Let's see who is the strongest and get's sent to Stornoway"! She has been told despite the resistance to missionaries there, they are getting ready to baptize someone on the Isle! Her prediction is that this the coolest place in the mission and she is going to love it! She also reports it rains even more than in her other areas, which is hard to imagine! 

She shares that she will miss the Dundee ward members and investigators tremendously. She feels she is prepared for her next adventure and states "I am going to be that missionary in the Other Side of  Heaven, I wonder if they even speak English up there?!
