Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is God, and beside him there is no Savior. Great is his wisdom, marvelous are his ways, and the extent of his doings none can find out. His purposes fail not, neither are there any who can stay his hand. From eternity to eternity he is the same, and his years neverfail. For thus saith the Lord—I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end. Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.

Sister Doubt

I'm not gonna lie. . . the last couple of weeks have been pretty difficult. We haven't been able to find very many people to teach and we are doing hours upon hours upon hours of finding. So there really isn't anything fantastic to talk about . . . .
We saw some beautiful sights last p-day. We went to a town called Peterlee with some of the Elders in our zone and did some 'caving', which I'm pretty sure is something they made up. But Peterlee has these incredible cliffs by the sea where there are caves you can walk around in, when the tide is low. So that was lots of fun! 
The Elders have given me the name Sister Doubt, because I doubt everything that everyone says. Such as, my DL and his companion are 'escavating dinosaur bones' in their flat. To which I say, YEAH RIGHT! I don't believe it for a minute. They showed me pictures of it, but it looks fake to me. And then when we were in Peterlee and they were saying how a ship that was off the coast was a pirate ship and I said, 'I seriously doubt that'. That's when they gave me the name Sister Doubt. :)
Sister Terry has begun calling me Sister Stout Bird when we go knocking because the knock is as quiet as a bird. But I feel like I'm banging the door down. My hand HURTS after I knock, because I'm knocking that loudly. But appearently it's not good enough. :)
We are having our mission Christmas party tomorrow, so no p-day today. I'll tell you all about next week.
Merry Christmas Everyone!  Love you all!!
Sister Ali Stout
