Weekly Update #51

     A beautiful day in Thurso, it is. Hello to you all! Hopefully your days have been as beautiful and just as exciting as what's coming up!

     The rest of Monday we traveled out of Edinburgh, making a quick stop to eat some food, but got caught in traffic as well and Stella, our SatNav, said we were due back to Thurso at 11:34 PM. I did not want to drive and stay up until 11:34, nor did I think I could make it. So, we called up the Inverness elders and stayed the night with them. It was alright. We had a good night's sleep. Also, Putturge (our old car) was replaced by Chandra (our new car!). Chandra's pretty sweet. She can get going pretty well and hasn't been through as much as Putturge. Good exchange on cars. 

     The next morning was our District Meeting. We got up and personally went to the meeting, we didn't have to Skype in this day. It was an enjoyable meeting. After, we traveled back to Thurso and made it safely. We then went shopping, because we couldn't on Monday, had a great time in doing so, and then had lunch. Lunch was good. After lunch, we GQed around Thurso a bit before a coordination meeting. We had the meeting, went out and visited some less-active folks, and that was the night.

     Wednesday we went to Wick. At Wick, we GQed a few folks and did some business we had to get done out there. After, we went back to the flat for lunch, got ready, and went to do some service. It was an enjoyable time doing service. You just have to love doing service! I was still a bit tired after Monday and Tuesday, but I made it through the day! Yeah!

     Thursday we rocked and rolled and started off GQing about Thurso. That went swell. After, a check engine light came on in Chandra, so we went to see what was up with that. The garages were busy, so we'll be taking her in this week to get her checked up on. After that, we met with a chap and his family out in Wick. It was a fabulous conversation! Good craic there! After, we went to meet with a recent convert and his family. That was another conversation which was good. Good conversations all around!

     Friday we weekly planned, GQed, met with a less-active and got volunteered to do a wee bit of service. It was a blast. After, though, we went to the church for a walk-through Plan of Salvation presentation the youth were doing. It was so incredible! Like, I would use words I've been asked not to use in emails by my MTC president, that's how marvelous it was! Such a blast!

     Saturday we did more service at the charity shop where we got engaged into a conversation with several people there! That was a neat experience. We talked about America, Ireland, Scotland, card games, board games, computer games, religion and all the good stuff that goes with it. The fellow we chatted with was a swell chap. After, we did service at the croft and caught some stuff on fire! That was fun! 

     Sunday was Easter! Easter was fun this year. We got several easter eggs, so I made the Egg Tower. 

Splendid. Anywho, during church there were a swamping of musical numbers, each one incredible. Elder Wynder and I were able to sing in the choir as we sung 'Consider the Lilies'. That was grand. After church, we had lunch, tried by some folks, then GQed Thurso a bit to close out the night  While doing so we found an odd hole with strange things by it. I took a picture and then we hurried on our way. 

It was also daylight savings. It's really light now at 7:00 PM. Throws me off.

     What a good day it has been. What a grand week it's been! I'm thankful for the opprotunity we have because of what Jesus Christ did for each of us. How fantastic is it that we can choose our own paths, make decisions, and if we mess up we can recover? Incredibly fantastic. 

     Thank you all for the prayers and the support! I wish each of you a great time this week! Cheers!
