This week was good! The rest of Monday we went about and did the usual preparation day activities with Elders Arave and Harvey. We went to see a lighthouse, which was neat. There was a killer whale statue thing.
It was neat. We think we also saw Norway, but we're not for certain. After, we went to Jarlshof to run around there a bit and then we went to FHE with a family. It was grand.
Tuesday we had district meeting, so we went to the church, Skyped to the Stornaway sisters and the senior couple there and had district meeting. Grand time. After, we had lunch and split up to visit some folks. It was grand. I was with Elder Harvey. After being split for a wee while, we got back together, did some more work about Lerwick, and closed out the night.
Wednesday we got up and went about to visit the quilting club with the other elders. They enjoyed it and enjoyed that we were being part of the community. After that, we went to Frankie's, this super good chippy that's supposed to be the most northern chippy in the UK, and it was grand! We did some work up there, then brought the other elders to the ferry to head back to Orkney. After they left, we did some visiting with some folks and had a good night.
Thursday was great as well. In the morning, we visited one of our friends in town, had a grand time there, did some work, had lunch, did some more work, and then had a grand dinner to close everything out. It was excellent!
Friday we mainly went about doing work. After some work, some service, and whatnot, we had lunch, and then visited with this one fellow and his family and did some service for them. That was great as well.
Saturday we went to church for coordination and had a pretty grand time there. After that, we met with the fellow and his family again for a pre-lunch snack. That was great fun, let me say. Then, we visited with another friend, had some good times with him, he invited us for dinner, so we stayed and ate. After that, we went to the Youth Cafe and had a blast there! Good times all round.
Sunday was also good. We went to church, got conscripted into the choir for a Christmas Eve program, and overall had a blast. It was great. Then, we went to one of our friend's house and had some good chats and whatnot with him. Good craic, I'd say.
That's this week! The only pictures I have are the ones that Elder Harvey took on Monday, so hopefully that'll do! Thank you all so much! Everyone, have a great week. My camera should be here this week. Cheers!
