Hey every one, Life is awesome here in Belfast!

So Update on our investigators! 

We finally got in contact with Cheryl. She is awesome. She looks at the new year ahead as the time to change her life to be better. She doesn't feel as though she is ready for baptism quite yet but she is just needs to learn more and she's do fine. She enjoy what we have been teaching her. However she is has her family telling not to meet with us but she can't find any reason not too so she is going to continue! 

Clara is alright. She didn't come to church this week. don't know why but we are meeting with her tonight. She has a lot of questions but her sister Jane keep talking over her and we don't have time for her questions! 

Jane on the other hand she is just being difficult! I think she likes all the attentions that is why she is doing what she does.

That is that for investigators! 

Now me. I marvel at what a testimony can do for people. I have been reading this book about the History of the church and It amazes me that thousands upon thousands of people going threw persecution just for believing in something different! It never has made sense to me that since how the Churches back in 1820 hated each other enough to point out the other flaws but how they all can unite together to try to destroy our church! It just never made sense. Now the World has made it seem bad to be different! Even me being out on my mission. people reject us because we bring something new that is something different in their life. I don't get why they hate the book of Mormon and stick to their bible! 

So that is me everyone! I love you all and I talk to you for the last time next week!

It's me

So, my life is awesome! Well I just choose that it is awesome and the teaching of Jesus make it all the different! 

So investigators...

Ozzy agreed to read the Book of Mormon. We litter took everything he said and pointed it to prophets and everything so the only options for him were that he read the Book of Mormon or the truth leave his house! He picked the Book of Mormon.

Clara and Jane and getting there! Clara his been praying but wouldn't tell anyone except for us missionaries! so she has planted the seed! Not it will grow! It's awesome Her sister however just like to talk about but her granny has a plan to get her to church! 

That is our investigators but now me! 

This last month for my mission is teaching me how to use the Principles of the Gospels to endure! It is hard stuff, me and my camp literally talk about Gospel topics all day he'll have a different view at looking at it and I do too but he thinks my view is completely wrong and his view is the only way. I'm trying to teach this kid that we are looking at the same thing but it's quite the processes! Really teaches me patience! 

So that is me i'm doing awesome! 

I love you all and thanks to the emails and the pictures! 

Me out!

It my week I do what I want!

So this week we saw Ozzy and this I what I think he was thinking at the end of lesson... "ok prove the Mormons wrong then I get rid of them forever! that should be easy." The lesson was literally our church I different from every other church! So why don't you prove us wrong! It was completely unnecessary!

But life Is awesome here! For new years we watch star trek and frozen and kung fu panda 2! And played monopoly! it was fun no one won because we had to leave... poor us! :( 

Then this guy had a stroke during the middle of sacrament! he was 92 years old and before it happen my and companion were crack jokes with him 20 minutes before it happened! it was mental! 

I am finishing my mission and I am determined to finish strong! I need to, or what else would I be doing! :)

Hey I love all the pictures and thanks for the video wishing me happy birthday! 

There was no questions so maybe next week! 

Love you all!
