March 28, 2016

Here is Mason's e-mail for this week . . . 
So for this week, last Monday we ended up having to stay the night in Inverness cause it took us a while to get out of Edinburgh with the traffic, and if Elder Kinville had just powered through for the rest of the drive we would have died! But on Tuesday we were actually able to go to district meeting in person. We looked like flipping hobos, since we didn't shave and had on the same clothes as the day before but it was really fun to be in that district meeting. Elder Perkins did a training on GQing so he had us role play selling him a CD which the Invergordon Elders had gotten the day before. It was an awful CD and by the end no one could say it was a good CD with a straight face and we were all laughing.

Then once we got back to Thurso we dropped everything off and did our shopping. Then we had a meeting with the branch mission leader and went by some less actives to finish off the day.

Wednesday in the morning we went and GQed Wick then after lunch we went and did service at the Tolworthys. This time it was mainly demolition they had us gather some old useless wood to burn then we destroyed an old chicken coop to burn as well. 

Thursday we went around Thurso most of the day looking for a garage cause our "new car's" check engine light is on. We found one but they are booked up until this week so we will need to take the car in some other time his week. Then we went and tried by the one less active who was drunk the last time we saw him (David) but he wasn't in. Then we went and saw the Billington family again. 

Friday we did our weekly planing cause we ran out of time on Thursday. Then we went and tried by some people in Wick and then did a bit of service for a less active named Brenda and then had a short lesson with her. She is older and things are always interesting when we see her. Then we went to the church because the youth were doing a Plan of Salvation fireside. They did a whole walk through of the POS and did up one room like the premortal life, our earth life and so on. We also did a tour of the three kingdoms and ended in the celestial kingdom it was a really cool thing and the youth loved putting it all together. 

Saturday it was the normal service Saturday started at New Start Highland, then ended at the Tolworthys. At the Tolworthys we just continued on with what we were doing last time, we were chopping wood into smaller pieces and that was about it still lots of fun. 

Sunday there was a lot of singing at Church. The Relief Society had a choir number and then so did the branch choir which me and Elder Kinville are in, we sang Consider the Lilies and it was pretty good. Then After Church we went by David again but he wasn't in again then we just GQed around Thurso which was pretty much just walking around. So not a very eventful Easter. Well that is all for this week.  Love and miss you guys.
