Weekly Update #82

     What a grand, spooky morning it is! Good afternoon! My week was neato, frito.

     Monday was good. We went to try by those folks we met on Sunday, but they weren't in. Their neighbor, on the other hand, was and he let us in! That was crazy good. 

     Tuesday we had exchanges in Dublin as well as District Meeting! I was with our fearless Canadian leader, Elder Gibb. We ate Boojum's for lunch and took a selfie. 

It was grand. Dublin was great, too. It's always nice to have a throw back to a familiar place. We also had kebabs at night.

     Wednesday we traveled back to Dundalk, had a grand time at it as well, and then tried our best to meet with some folks. It didn't quite turn out, but we still had a blast at it! Always a blast with Kinville and Plewe.

     Thursday we did some finding in the morning and then hit it up with some grand chapping a bit later on. It was nice. We also met with one of our friends who had an accident and broke his hip, so we had a nice chat with him, shared some gospel with him, and went off. After that, we had dinner at a member's house and then weekly planned and that was pretty much the evening.

     Friday was also a great day. We started off GQing Dundalk, then we went to Drogheda again because we were invited back by the member to have venison again! Wow! But while we were there, we found some people who we're gonna try by in the future. That's fun! There was also an old thing, and you should never pass up the chance to take a selfie by an old thing.

     Saturday was a day full of finding folks. We went out and about, GQed the town, talked to some people, and just overall had a day full of finding. It was grand, except in the evening where my bike tire blew out and we had to walk back to the flat for a flat inspection. Still good, though!

     Sunday was also good! It was a fifth Sunday, but because President Nesbitt was feeling ill, the combined lesson ended up being mine? I don't know how, but we had a lovely lesson. It was great. After, we went back to the flat, had lunch, and then went into town to close out the evening with a bit of chapping. It was good, very good.

     Today, I'm emailing a bit later because it's Halloween and our usual internet shop (as well as half the town) is closed. But hey, I'm here and emailing! It's all grand!

     Thank you all so much for the support! I hope you all have a great week! Thank you! Happy Halloween, ya'll!

Weekly Update #81

 Great week this week! Been a fun week, been a good week, I'm satisfied with this week.

     The rest of Monday we went out and about and closed up our P-day by doing some finding, which is always fun.

     On Tuesday we woke up extra-early to be in Dublin early for a Zone Meeting. This was me on the train at 6 in the morning. That was neat, it was fun, and we learned some good things. After that, Elder Plewe and I had to boost off to Dundalk. We did and we finished up the day with some more finding and going to a little Branch study night. It was pretty great.

     Wednesday we went out and about to GQ the town in the morning and then headed to this part of town we thought would also be good for GQing. It wasn't as promising, so we started chapping and my goodness, it was pure gold! Turns out it's a housing estate for college people and a ton of solid people were there. To say the least, most of our finding this week was in that estate. In the evening, we visited this fellow who we chapped into and had a nice discussion with him to close out the evening.

     Thursday was good, too! We GQed the town and then went back to the neighborhood to do some more finding, which turned out to be insane again. After, we tried by this less-active fellow, met with him, and had a nice discussion with him. Then, we closed the evening out by weekly planning. Good and safe evening.

     On Friday we GQed the town then went down to Drogheda to meet with a member. Selfie from Drogheda. 

That was fantastic because he cooked up some incredible venison! It was great, I was a fan. After that, we bused back, did some more finding around the town, and then went back home for the rest of the evening.

     Saturday was a special day. On Saturday, we did more finding in that blessed neighborhood, set up several appointments, and then headed out and around to visit some people we had met with earlier, but sadly they misled us and missed out on getting the gospel by giving us false addresses. Shame, shame.

     Sunday was great! We had a fantastic lesson during church with one of our friends and had a pretty grand time. After, we did some great work around with administrative work and then closed out the evening by heading back to that estate and were let in to teach a lesson to some folks who are having us back today! Grand!

     This week has been grand, let me say! Good times, nice times, I'm ready for what's to come! Thank you all for what you've done! Hey, you all need to have a great day and a great week!

Weekly Update #80

  Good lovely morning from Dundalk! What a lovely morning it is, too! The week wasn't as lovely weather wise, but who cares? It's Ireland.

     The rest of Monday was good. We took it slow and relaxed a bit, having a good time there.  We traveled down in the evening to Dublin so we can get heading to an All-Ireland Conference the next day. It was grand.

     Tuesday we went to the conference! It was excellent! I loved every moment of it. Plus, I got to see Elder Roylance! I missed out on a selfie with him, though. On the way back, we got Boojums and had a grand time with it!

     Wednesday we heading out and we chapped like some mad bosses, after GQing in the morning. It was a long day of chapping, but we did it and it was grand and all.

     Thursday was much the same. In the evening, we weekly planned and it was neat. That was good as we did. And night-time selfie just because it's getting dark at like six now.

     Friday was grand, too. We did a ton of finding in the morning and then in the evening we taught some of our friends. After that, we left and met another one of our friends on the street who invited us over for dinner! That was great, let me say. Good time there.

     Saturday, finding, finding, finding, finding! And some more finding. That was Saturday. Night-time picture of Dundalk, too.

     Church on Sunday was great, too. We went out and about and did some finding afterwards, which was excellent. Good times, overall.

     That was this week! Plenty of finding, plenty of talking to people, hopefully all goes good in this lovely town. That's the dream, that's the goal. Hopefully!

     Hopefully you all have a great week! Thank you all for the support and whatnot, take care!

Weekly Update #79

 Good morning on this lovely Monday morning! It's been a good week and I'm excited to tell ya'll all about it!

     Monday was a good rest of the P-day. We taught one of our friends and had a good time doing some craic around town. It was nice, yep.

     Tuesday we started down to Dublin to go to District Meeting, always a blast, and we had a good time there! After, we got on the train back, got lunch, tried by this one person, and did some finding throughout the evening. In the evening, we were asked to teach the New Testament class at the church because the Branch President couldn't get there. Now that, that was grand.

     Wednesday we went out and GQed the town before we did some service at a member's house, installing a lock on her door and getting part of it ready for renovations and stuff. That was fun! We then GQed the town a bit and there was this intoxicated fellow who told us he was a healer and in the middle of conversations had us shake his hand and then he'd wink at us and laugh and keep talking about Jesus. It was good, except we're pretty sure he won't remember any of it. After that, we did some knocking like usual, and it was grand. Good times always when you go out and knock.

     Thursday we weekly planned, did the progress record, and then had a good time heading about and did some finding. We also met with a friend, had a nice discussion with him and then continued finding into the night until it was done and dusted. Then for dinner, because we felt like it, we got Chinese. Chow mien is the best, ever, of all time.

     On Friday we had a grand day lined up. We got up and out and met with a friend, GQed the town, and then as we were knocking on this one estate, we were let into two houses and taught lessons there. Whaaaat? That's insane. That's only happened to me once before, but then twice, with the distance of ten doors, we get let in twice. Flippin' crazy! It was grand, though. Met some good folks and whatnot.

     On Saturday, we did the usual in the morning with GQing, but there were ducks. Tons of rubber ducks in the town! EVERYWHERE! 

It was kinda spooky, but we handled it and went on being champions. After, we tried by several of our friends, met with one of them, and had a pretty grand night. It was good. Then, of course because of ducks, we had kebabs. But we also got a duck. His name is Steffan. Steffan the Duck.

     Sunday was Stake Conference! We got a lift down with our Branch President and had a grand time! I saw some people from Terenure there, and it was a blast! Good times, for sure. After, we came back, did some work about the town, met with a friend, and that was the night. It was a pretty nice night, let me say.

     Today, we've got a good day lined up. Should be fun! Anywho, that's that, folks! Thanks for the letters, support, prayers, and all that good craic. Hopefully you all have a great week, too! Cheers!

Weekly Update #78

Another week, another lovely morning!

     Monday was grand, like. We biked out and about to Carlingford to see this castle, but it was being fixed up so it was closed. That was a shame. But, we found a Leprechaun  place in the town and also, I found my favorite rock of all time. 

What a great rock, picture attached. Anyways, we biked back from there and it took a good while and it was grand!

     Tuesday was moves day, so we had a normal day. We tried to meet with this friend in town, it was good, and then we also did some good finding. Good time, I'd say. Anywho, that was Tuesday.

     Wednesday we rocked it out with a usual day of finding, GQing, chapping, and all that good craic. We had a good time, too. It was nice. In the evening, we taught one of our friends and had a good conversation with him there.

     Thursday was especially epic. We had some fun with fruit in the morning and the fruit was cut up by the end of companionship study. We may or may not have played fruit ninja.

Anywho, after that we GQed town, went to the bus station, went up to Newry to do some finding and to meet with some members there, who were all fantastic, let me say. After that wonderful day, the day was done and it was good. Good day.

     Friday we weekly planned, heading into town and got some good craic done. We met with one of our friends, had a nice time, and then did the usual rounds of finding. Lots and lots and lots of finding to be done. That was the day.

     Saturday we rocked out with some finding in the morning and another meeting with a friend. After, we had a good lunch, went about town, and watched the first hour of General Conference, which was fantastic! After the hour, we taught another lesson and by then the day was done.

     Sunday was a day of conference. We watched some 7 hours of conference and did finding inbetween. It was a blast. I loved conference this year, President Utchdorf's first talk was marvelous, Elder Juan Uceda's talk was excellent as well, and then I loved what President Monson had to say about the Word of Wisdom. Isn't it great that there's a prophet on the earth today? I think so!

     That was this week. Pretty fun, pretty grand, can't complain! Saw a rainbow in Newry, so we've got some time to get some work done!

Let's get working, friends.

     Thank you all for the support and encouragement! Hopefully you all have a great week! Please do.
