Weekly Update #66

     Hello from Dundalk, Ireland! Wow, wow, wow! What a great week this has been! Let me break it down for ya'll!
     Monday was good. Elder Arave and I went out and about and cleaned up the flat, celebrated the Fourth by wearing patriotic ties, and then left Livingston. It was bittersweet. Wow, so it was. We spent the night at another missionary's flat.
     Tuesday was a day of travel. Woke up bright and early to head to the bus station 

(Final selfie with Elder Arave) to ride on a bus for a few hours to get onto a ferry to ride that for a few hours, to get onto another bus to ride for a few hours and then be in Dublin! It was grand. I loved being back in Dublin. There, I met Elder Corcran and we began our companionship with a selfie. 

That was grand.
     Wednesday we went to Dundalk and began work. We taught several folks as we went out and about in town. It was a great day! That was about it. Dundalk is like Terenure. It has bikes! My legs are a bit sore, but I am pushing through it!
     Thursday we started off doing some GQing around town, did a wee bit of shopping since we couldn't the other day, and then taught a few lessons again. It's crazy how many lessons we taught and folks we met with. That was the day.
     Friday we kept doing good craic! We weekly planned, did some GQing, taught another lesson, did some more GQing, taught another lesson, and then we got a surprise as this fellow who had just gotten off his mission visited us. It was Elder Tarbet! That was fun. We met his family, had a dinner, and that was the night.

     Saturday we started off with some admin work inside. After that, we kept going about, doing good work, and had a blast. There's this great van that parks outside our flat, pretty exciting.  

In the evening, we had a branch coordination with the Branch mission leader, that was grand.
     Sunday was epic. Just plain epic. We got to the church, met some folks, and then I gave a talk in sacrament meeting. That was fun. After that, we had a lesson with this fellow from France who's been studying and investigating the church for a few years now. It's thrilling, it really is. After that, we went back to the flat for a wee bit to get some food then went out and taught another lesson. We're teaching machines here, let me say.
     That was this last week. Just, wow. We've gotten a lot done. It's grand. It really is.
     Thank you all so much for the prayers and support! Have a craicing day, like!
