Paul Street

March 14, 2016

Hey everyone! Sorry for no email last week. As far as the heading goes, I moved apartments! I am now on 25 PAUL Street in the middle of the City! Pretty crazy huh? Imagine living on the Strip. It is like that, but in Ireland. So no more 4 man flat! Our apartment is nice so that is good.

Updates! Frederic is moving to France on the 24th :((((((((((( We saw him last Tuesday before he left on vacation to America for 10 days. He has a baptismal date for the 22nd of March! Pray for him! He left for Las Vegas on Wednesday the 9th and we arranged for him to meet my family on Thursday the 10th! My dad picked him up from the Plaza hotel and he went to dinner at my house with the family! Eric and Morgan were able to FaceTime and meet him as well. Marissa and Morgan were able to share their conversion stories with him. Then my mom and Marissa took him to the Las Vegas temple to walk around and go into the lobby. What an incredible experience! I still can’t believe it happened. (We had a great time with Frederic! – Mom) Pray for Fred! He wants to be baptized, but he feels like something is blocking him. I know that he can act in faith and enter into a covenant with his Heavenly Father next Tuesday. We taught 2 new people as well! Hermina is from Armenia and Savannah is from California. Martyna is doing well, but doesn’t want to be baptized because her family is Catholic. She wants to follow the example of Jesus Christ so pray for her and her family please đŸ™‚

Alma 7:11-12 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled whichsaith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death whichbind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may knowaccording to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities. This is my ponderizing scripture! Jesus Christ went through literally anything that we could ever go through. He knows what it feels like to lose your job, to crash your car, and to have a family member pass away. Turn to Him and He can give you comfort.

 

I love you all and have a great week!
