I got a new companion! Elder Baake went off to Inverness, and I got Elder Barlow. He's from Taylorsville, Utah has 10 brothers and 6 sisters and 2 kilts. He's been out about 11 months and has only been to Waterford and Inverness so far. Dumfries will be a nice edition to his mission.

A Burton Menswear store burned down a few weeks here and recently they've been selling everything that was in the store for 70% off so after we're done emailing today we'll probably go get some clothes that keep us looking classy and hopefully last us the rest of our mission.

A lot if not all of my time in Dumfries so far has been spent finding, finding, finding. So recently after being really tired of finding for 9 hours a day every day for the last 15 weeks here we decided to try and switch things up. Not often in my mission have I asked members to send us their friends that might be interested. Actually, I don't think I have ever. So we are in the process of trying to find a way to get more referrals. It's been good so far but no friends given yet. I'll let you all know if something ever happens in Dumfries.

Have a good week!
