Sligo 6/20/16

Hello Family!
9 months (Half of Sister Missionary, as they say)

It was a wonderful week!

I got the Package! I loved it!

I'm glad that dad got my Letter! That was fast!

This was my week!

We got haircuts! Fresh!!!   We played frisbee in the park! After PDay hours we went finding for the rest of the night!

We did finding for the whole day because all of our appointments fell through!  In the evening we traveled to Mullingar (For Zone Conference the next day).

We traveled to Dublin in the Morning!
We had a great Zone conference! We learned about Urgency in our efforts as missionaries! It was great to meet with President Donaldson! He is an amazing Mission President!

One of the Elders, Elder Trease had a friend serving in the Cinco West ward. His friend was Elder Williams! Elder Williams saw my Missionary Plaque and he sent a picture to Elder Trease. Elder Trease told me about it at Zone Conference.  After Zone Conference we went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders! I went with Elder Crowe. Elder Crowe is really into music. He was in a boy band called Beyond 5 before his mission. He told me about the tours he went on! He preformed at Zone Conference and it was really good!

We taught a man named Vilnas who was their Investigator. It was an amazing lesson! He had the best questions and he is progressing towards baptism!  Afterwords we taught a Recent Convert named Jernes. He is receiving the Melchizedek Priesthood and we had a lesson to help him know that he is prepared for the Higher Priesthood!

We taught a Women named Jenny! She is searching for the truth so she was very interested. She had really good questions. Hopefully the Zone Leaders will help here progress towards Baptism!  In the evening we caught a train from Dublin Connolly back to Sligo!

We saw our friend Ed from the Bronx. We had a lesson with him on Enduring to the End. He has some problems that he feels he can get over but we testified that he can he can know the truth if he continues studying and praying  and having faith in Jesus Christ!

In the evening we went to Family Home Evening! William, a less active member was there and he had fun. He is hopefully going to start coming back to church!

We taught our friend Chris. We taught him the Plan of Salvation! He loved the lesson and the spirit was so strong in his home!  We taught our friend Clement afterwards. We read with him in Alma 32 about Faith. He wants to know whats true but for himself, he needs to do his part in the promise!
After those lessons we found for the rest of the night. Ireland lost to Belgium in the Euros game so most of the people on the street were angry and upset so it was hard to talk to people!

We had a great Sunday meeting. Chris came and he really enjoyed church! It was great to finally see him there!   In Gospel Principles we taught a lesson on Temples. It was a great lesson and I love testifying of the Joy that comes from going the House of the Lord!

Hope you have a great week!

Elder Udy
