Weekly Update #50

     Bit of a curveball today, but from Edinburgh, hello! Had a crazy 5 hour drive this morning to get to Edinburgh, but we are here and we are rocking it out! Let's get the craic rolling.

     Last Monday was good. We went and did other P-day activities and it was fun. In the evening, we had a dinner with the American family in the ward. That was good. He had a collection of books by Hugh Nibley, which was amazing! To say the least, we selfied it.

     Tuesday we went out and about, had a good morning talking to some folks on the street. We then hopped over for some service and had a good chat with them while serving. In the evening, we did some more street contacting and then returned to our flat. Sort of a busy day, but good!

      Wednesday was another mainly finding day. We went out and about, talked with folks on the street, had lunch, talked with more folks and did that most of the night. In the evening, we had a coordination meeting with our Branch Mission Leader, which was also a blast. He's a neat fellow. We then continued back to the flat to find a massive wood louse. I was a fan of it.

     Thursday we were on exchanges in Inverness! That was so much fun! Inverness is a lovely city. Anywho, I was with Elder Clay for a bit, then I went contacting with Elder Perkins. It was a wonderful day. We had dinner and cooked up a campfire in the back garden so we could roast marshmallows and make s'mores. We didn't have grahm crackers, so we used digestive biscuits. Same difference, but it was a wonderful night.

     Friday was right off epic. We went by Loch Ness, which was incredible! After, we returned to Thurso and went right off doing what we do: finding. That was a blast. In the evening, we had an appointment with our recent convert and had a wonderful lesson and chat with his family.

     Saturday we got a call saying we had to drive down to Edinburgh to get our car exchanged for a different one. That was exciting. Anywho, we did service on this day, and like always it was a blast. Helping folks is fun! I had another good chat with some of the charity shop folks we serve with about the States and sort of what I'm doing out and about here in Scotland. Blessings. Maybe one day one of them will ask or will accept if we invite. Hopefully!

     Sunday was a fabulous Sunday, let me say. We had a grand church meeting and had choir practise after. After that, we did some street contacting, because that's we do in Thurso. Anywho, had some good times, good chats, a few laughs, overall was grand! After, we had dinner and got ready to wake up at 5:00 to get ready to drive to Edinburgh the next day.

     Today, we drove. It's been a great five hours, so far. Lovely scenery; we saw the end of a rainbow (no pot of gold), and saw some beautiful countryside. What a blessing.

     That was me for this week, pretty basic, pretty straightforward but that's how missionary work is to be. I hope you all have had a marvelous week and that you all keep having a marvelous week! Thank you all so much! Cheers!
