Sligo 3/28/2016

We traveled to Mullingar in the morning. We planned on going on exchanges since we had Zone Conference the next day.  It was easier to stay overnight and travel to Dublin the next day.
I went on exchanges with Elder Davis. We did a lot of finding. We did more tracting because we were not in a town with a lot of people.
After a long day of finding we got shamrock shakes and watched the Book of Mormon animated videos.
We traveled to Zone Conference in Dublin.
We had some good instruction on Teaching simply and likening the scriptures to ourselves so we can use them more effectively in lessons.
After Zone Conference we had to hurry back to catch the last train to Sligo.
We taught our Polish friend Berta. We taught the Plan of Salvation. She really liked it and said it made more sense. I'm glad she was able to hear our message about God's plan for us.
After meeting with Berta, we spent the rest of the day finding.
We taught our Congo friend Joshua. We taught the Plan of Salvation to him. He knows that we teach the truth. He said that he was starting a fast so that he can find out for himself if this is the truth. I know God has prepared him to find the truth. We also were able to get him a French Book of Mormon finally.
After meeting with Joshua, we did some service for a family in our branch, the Walsh's. Brother Walsh worked on the London Temple and was a professional designer. He spent the last 10 years building the house they have now, and he is still working on it. The house, I have to say, is so massive and designed really amazingly. We helped them get huge carpets from the bottom floor to their 3rd floor. We are going back this week to help him with his garage.
After we had Family home evening. We taught about Prophets and how God continues to call prophets.
Our Venezuelan investigators, Jesus and Loander, made us some Venezuelan hot dogs, they were really good. They had cheese, onions, mayo, mustard, and some other stuff on it.
We did finding most of the day. We were able to teach our Venezuelan Friends. We talked about the Bible and how we know the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. We hope that they can seek divine guidance to know if this is the truth.
We went to church. One of the members brought us some Cadbury chocolate Easter eggs. I got one that had the Cadbury Sponge candy bars inside. It was so good!. We had a good sacrament meeting. The branch president talked about the Atonement and how we are truly blessed to have it!

We watched a Conference talk on yielding to God’s way for Joint Priesthood and Relief Society.
After church we went finding which was hard because everyone was inside and when we tracted they did want to be bothered.


Today Jesus, the Venezuelan, will be giving me a haircut so that will be interesting!

Have a great week!
