Sligo 5/30/16

We got our Moves call last night. I am staying and Elder Vasvary is going to Paisley Scotland. I am getting Elder Thane from Utah! 
Here is how the week went 
We just went around and looked at really nice suits and cool toys! That's what P-Days usually are here in Sligo.
We did some service for a man named James, that we found the other day. We tore up his driveway with some hammers he gave us. I also tore up my hands as well as his drive way. It was great service to do and was hard work!
In the evening we taught a woman named, Archena. She is from India and was investigating the church before. He family was having some health problems so she was questioning her faith because so many bad things were happening to her. We shared the Plan of Salvation with her and our testimonies!
We did some service for the Walsh family, in our branch. We helped cut their hedges down to size. It was a lot of work but they were happy which was great!
We taught Eduardo, our friend from Brazil. We brought him a Book of Mormon and shared the background of it. He seemed really interested to read it.  I'm excited to see what he thinks!
In the later part of the Day we taught a man named Dan from Congo, who lives in the Refugee center. We taught the restoration but he didn't like what was said so he said he doesn't want to go any further.  The rest of our day was spent Street Contacting!

We saw Ed in the afternoon. He seems to be doing a lot better, health wise! We shared about help in the church and how we are all here to serve each other when some thing might not go well.
In the evening we had family home evening! The Ducusins, shared about the Book of Mormon and why we have it. They made some delicious food from the Philippines!
Was a whole day of finding. Hard because most of the people on the streets were tourists. Its tiring work but I love working hard!
It was a strange day. Very few members came to church and it felt weird.
At the end of the day I prayed that we can end the day with a lesson. How we were going to get that, I don't know, but I had faith.
When we were tracting, the 3rd door we knocked on, the man let us in. His name was Clive. He was a very friendly man! We shared our purpose as missionaries. We also shared the Restoration! We gave him a Book of Mormon. He was so happy to meet with us! I truly know that God answers our prayers!
It was a great week. We taught more lessons.
I love you all !
Elder Joseph Udy
