Sligo 6/13/16

Hello Everyone!

Another week!

Our week was great!

Here we go!

For the first time in my almost 9 months in the Emerald Isle, I have see lighting and it was great. There are rarely lightning or thunderstorms here so I was excited!  That was the highlight of the day! We spent the hours after P-Day, finding in the city.

Our favorite missionaries from Mullingar came for District Meeting and exchanges.  We talked about our goals for the Sligo District in the Month of June and July.  Elder Davis and I went on exchanges! It was a blast, we went finding for most of the day!  For dinner we all got Kebabs to celebrate and kick off this new transfer.

We did finding all day until our meeting with Jesus and Loander. We read about the Saviors visit to the Americas! It always brings the Spirit to read about the Savior!

We went to help and support Jesus and Loander with their Latin Dance class. It was actually really fun. We learned how to the Barchacha (I don't know how its really spelled). It was a great finding opportunity. We talked to a older lady that said remember when Ezra Taft Benson was the "Mormon Prophet".

Later,  we taught our Friend Garreth. He works at Game Stop! He was able to get a little break so we could talk to him. We taught him about the Restoration. Elder Thayne and I taught with true Unity, It was probably the most unified lesson I experienced so far on my mission. We testified of the power of the Holy Ghost. He was excited to read the Book of Mormon!

In the evening we went with Brother Teirnan, our branch mission leader, to go see our Recent Convert, Stephen! It was a great lesson! Stephen has a hard time studying so I was able to share with him what I do to study because I have that problem as well! We talked about enduring to the end and how we need to always follow the example of Jesus Christ!

We saw Ed today. He is doing well. He has been trying to finish his over 150 poems so he can compile them into a book. We taught about always getting back up when things might be hard, just like Nephi when he got discouraged, he kept going!  Before Family home evening we went to KFC, (Because there wasn't going to be food at Family home evening). It was a tough because it was all uphill bike ride there but the food was good!  Only Jesus and Loander showed up to Family Home Evening.  We talked about Sacrifice  from the Gospel Principles book.

Sligo is most famous for the poet, W.B Yeats, who 150th would have been today! They had a big poem reading and free cake. All I have to say was that the Poem was great and the Cake was delicious!  After that we did finding for the rest of the evening.  We had some ice cream cones to cool off after a warm day!

Another Lovely Sabbath day! We had a great Priesthood lesson on being an example to others!
Later we went with our Branch President to visit some less active members!
It was a great week and this week we have our Zone Conference in Dublin on Wednesday!
I miss you all and hope you all have a great week!
Elder Joseph Udy
