Sligo 7/4/16

Hello Everyone! 
I am leaving the Emerald Isle to go to Scotland!. I will be serving in Dumbarton which is in the Glasgow Stake!   It will be fun, but this is how my last week here went!

We played Frisbee in the park! I bought a Ireland Jersey!
In the evening we met with Jesus and Loander. We shared with them the Mormon Message : Testimony of the Book of Mormon. I knew they felt the power of Jeffery R Holland's Testimony and it was so powerful to me as well. We then read 1 Nephi 7. It teaches us to be grateful for the blessings we have received from our loving Heavenly Father!

In the morning, we had our district meeting over Skype. We talked about obedience and why it is so important. When we disobey we are blocking the blessings that could come into our lives.  The rest of the day we spent finding. We pushed hard and found some good people to teach!

Today we taught a man named Robin Hey. He is from Holland. He plays the banjo on the street. I actually bought his CD about 2 months ago! We talked about keeping the commandments. He told us that keeping the commandments is something he would like to do!

After that we taught our Brazilian friend, Eduardo. We read the first chapter of first Nephi with him. He knows what it was saying was true! He works on the weekends so we need to help him have a desire to come to church!

We went to Jesus and Loander's Latin Dance class. It was fun! They made some really good fruit punch!  After the class we actually taught a women, Hillary, that we met that day at the Dance class! She is very open and is willing to pray and read about the Book of Mormon!  In the evening we went to Tobercurry with Brother Ducusin to see Stephen! He is doing well! He reads all the time and has a strong testimony!

We taught Robin again! He travels around a lot. we taught him about the Word of Wisdom. We committed him to live it while he is gone in Spain!  After we taught Ed. We talked about Gods love and how it is for everyone! He is such a great man but is held back because of Word of Wisdom Issues!  We then had Family home evening. We read a talk by Thomas S. Monson about having Christ as a center for our lives!

We met with Chris! He is not getting baptized yet because he wanted to know and be taught more so he can decide.  After we went finding for the rest of the evening!

What a great testimony meeting! In joint Priesthood/Relief Society, we taught about talents and how we can help others !

It was a great week!

I get to my area tomorrow. I will be white washing (it means that they are putting new elders into the area to get a fresh start on the area!) Dumbarton!

It will be fun! I will miss Sligo!
Also when you send my package can you get me some bleach pens, tide to go pens and socks (if you can)
I love you all so much!
Have a great week!
Elder Joseph Udy
