Weekly Update #54

    Hello, hello, hello! What a great week it has been! There has not been a lacking of fun and excitement this week!

     So, Elder Wynder and I are champions, to start off. On Monday we started off our P-day emailing, then shopping, then to close the evening we had a lovely dinner at a member's house. It was fantastic to say the least. 

     Tuesday, we were out and about. In the morning we went by a less active lady and had a lovely conversation with her. After, we did a bit of work, lunch, other things, did some service, and had an overall good day. I also got a deep-fried Mars bar, which was incredible! Like, for reals! It was the best!

     Wednesday was where the fun began, though. We went out for some service to a less-active lady, trimming the garden, when we got a call from the AP's. They told us not to drive, because my provisional license had just expired, and to wait for further instruction. We mowed the lawn, did some other service, waited with the highest anxiety, and they didn't call that day.

     But on Thursday, Elder Wynder and I were heading off to do some work when we got a call from the AP's. They told us that the car in Thurso was to be relocated and that we were to wait for further instruction from our Zone Leaders. This was interesting news. Thurso is a spread-out and thinly populated area. There's two big towns in Thurso area, Thurso and Wick, they're about 20 miles apart. There is a bus system in Thurso which runs about hourly for most buses, but others aren't as frequent. This was exciting. Thus begins the new and carless adventures of Wynder and Kinville! 

The rest of the day we tried and didn't succeed at using the bus system, but had a good day! Held a guinea pig, too.

     Friday we rocked it out with weekly planning and figuring out how to use the buses, mainly bus times and whatnot. We did so, it was a blast, and then we went to a doctors office because my ear got clogged with wax. They solved the problem. All is good. After, we had a lovely meal with some members, shared a fantastic message with them, and then had a coordination meeting with our Branch Mission leader. That was productive and fun, as always. 

     Saturday was a service day! Mostly. We did our service at the charity shop and then went about to head down to Inverness with Elder Roach and Elder Clay to return the car. We did so, it was grand, and then we had an exchange. I was paired with Elder Hornburger (totally spelt that wrong. I'm 95% certain). We had some good times that night, talked to some pretty sweet people. Then we had a camp fire and it was grand.

     Sunday was Stake Conference! We went to the Inverness chapel to watch it. It was fantastic! Until it cut out and there were technical difficulties. Fun times! After, we went to a member's house for a lunch, which was incredible macaroni and cheese. After that, Elder Hornburger and I did some more GQing, and then Elder Wynder and I went to another member's house for dinner. Elder Wynder served in Inverness before he came to Dublin. It was neat being able to meet some members down there. We stayed the night in Invergordon's flat. 

     Thus far, this morning, we have had a grand ol' time. We had some good studies, and now we're emailing. We'll be back in Thurso a wee bit later today, and our car adventures will continue! Forever onwards!

     That was this week. A neat thing to say about Elder Hornburger: he was serving in Dalkeith before I went out there. It was good to be able to talk about the area with him, what happened, who was where, what was what, and all that fun Jazz. It was a blast.

     It's been fun! Let me say. Thank you all for the support and encouragement! Hey, you all have a great day and a grand week!
