went to a farmers market and got burritos with the elders...they were really good....also elders made brownies....that is why i'm getting so fat.
saw Gary, and then he came with us and we saw patrick.
oh man, if any one has advice PLEASE SHARE.
Patrick is 22 and he is really nice, going to uni, and his family is catholic, he started meeting with us, stopped drinking, BUT HE WON'T PRAY ABOUT ANYTHING WE TEACH, or be baptized, he just doesn't see the point of truly knowing....any suggestions?
had delicious food at the stapeltons, trav made like noodles, and it was like pad thai and it was amazing!
we saw Josiephine, I love her. We found out we will be loosing the car this week, so i don't know how we are going to get down and see her, but where there is a will, there is a way! i am determined!
we saw Phindie, and Khanyo which was really good, we shared about Alma 26
we saw ingrid! she made sister skagen a goodbye cake, and it was amazing!
we got to go to Cobh(cove) and see Gary's family, they are all less-active, we didn't get to share a message, but we could tell his father, missed the church, when we were getting ready to leave, he said the closing prayer. later that night gary sent us a message saying "thank you. I haven't seen my father pray for years."
what a sweet tender mercy the Lord was able to give us, by letting us be apart of it, and apart of this families lives, we look forward to getting to know them more.
we had dinner with the Roys, and were able to speak to Laura about General Conference, what a blessing when these investigators already have a friend, if you know anyone who isn't a member, invite them to learn from the missionaries, it won't do any harm!:) Laura did come to conference to the Saturday Afternoon, sunday morning, and loved it.
penny dinners, and sister skagens last penny dinners, they let her give a speak and gave her a round of applause, it was funny. Everyone had their phones out and everything! totally awesome!
met with Jerome, and while at burger king, this drunk man was getting pretty upset at sister skagen (don't know why) so we had to leave, it was scary, but yet we feel peace from God. we were able to talk to Jerome about him mission papers.
i loved the henry b. eyring in the womens session!
we need to listen and DO.
i loved donald l. hallstrom...we met i'm once...HE IS SO NICE.
AH. GO READ HIS AGAIN AND AGAIN

they all were good!!
ah we also meet Elder kearon, his was amazing too!
some random quotes i love.
"reach out. and take His hands"
he did this just for me
i am a child of god and i know it.
the choices we make now. determine our destiny.
LEARN. LISTEN. WALK.
God sees us as we truly are and He see us worthy to rescue.
The Lord doesn't make it easy, but he makes it possible.
if we live the gospel then tomorrow will always be magnificent.
I thank God for a prophet to lead us and guide us in these days!!!
