March 7, 2016

Here is the e-mail we got from Mason today - today was his 21st birthday so it was nice to e-mail back and forth a little on his actual birthday! And, he is in his new area - Thurso, Scotland.

Today we will be going to a tartan shop in our area in a town called Wick. We were going to be able to blitz Inverness tomorrow and me and Elder Perkins were going to have dinner with Gale but Elder Perkins called and said now he needs to go to Edinburgh for something and that he will need to head down Tuesday night so the blitz is postponed for a little while :(. But we don't really have anything exciting up here its just a bunch of small towns and what not. Our flat its an alright flat but it gets cold, and its nice we have the car now. The branch is pretty nice there are about 30 active members, it is a bit odd being in a branch.

So for this week Monday and Tuesday were just packing and saying good bye to everyone in Montrose.

Wednesday was a lot of travel we got on a train to Dundee in the morning and I picked up Elder Roach (Elder Barton's greenie) and then got a train to Aberdeen where Elder Kinville picked me up and then we drove and drove and drove. We stopped off at Inverness really quick - we got lunch at McDonald's then went to one of the tartan shops and I got a Macbeth Tartan tie. Tomorrow I will be getting a Scott Hunting tie in Inverness since we will be down for district meeting. Then we went and saw Gale really quick she was really happy to see me and it was really good to see her and Riley again. Then we drove another 2 1/2 hours to Thurso and shopped and that was it. 

Thursday we did weekly planing and drove around the area a bit and did some GQing in Wick. 

Friday we had a lesson with a recent convert named Theoden who is I think 9 his mom is a less active and his dad is a recent convert and former pagan priest so they are really interesting.

Saturday was all service. We started by going to the charity shop and after that we drove out to a small farm house where a member family lives and did some service for them. We were mucking out the horse corral and that was a lot of crap, then we had dinner with them. 

Sunday was nice. We had church and met the members in the branch who are really nice. Then me and Elder Kinville drove around the area for a bit just look for any new places to find. Then we had dinner and walked around Thurso for a bit. 

So that was my week. Love and miss you guys.
Here are some pictures he took with people before he left Montrose and a picture in Thurso and a link to a short video -
