August 8, 2011


Hope things are going well. I’ve been in Warwick for almost a week now. It is basically a small farming town. Everything is nice and spread out and everyone has a good amount of land to live on. There aren't as many dogs or gates so it is great. My Companion is really excited to be in the area after it has been closed for the last 6 month and the Branch is struggling. They are happy to have up back as well. We're optimistic and really hope we can help things get moving here. Our flat is massive. It is a 3 bedroom house with a full kitchen and living room and an open screened front porch thing. It is crazy!

Unfortunately, the last Elders that were here (6 months ago) failed to clean out the freezer before they turned it off. That was quite a nasty sight; so much so that we even had to get a new fridge. It was bad. We have a car for now but it'll be taken off us soon, sadly, and it will be back to the bikes. It will be a hard transition because the town isn't flat at all and is very spread out over a valley. It will be a trial but we'll deal with it when the time comes.

It is a good place though and we're excited and hoping for the best. My Comps quite experience so it feels good to have that extra support and experience rather than the feeling of complete responsibility that comes a Senior Comp.

Time is running short. Talk to you next week.
