Good bye Elder Vstud

April 11, 2016
Hey Everyone! Moves call was yesterday! Usually they don’t call until 6pm, but we got our call at 4pm. They told Elder van Staden that he was going to Aberdeen, Scotland, the other side of the mission! And then they said he needed to pack right then and go to Limerick THAT NIGHT. Usually we don’t move until Tuesday, so we rushed him up, said goodbye, and left back to Cork! He is an amazing missionary and I am going to miss him a lot! I also had to say goodbye to Elder Christensen and Sister Skagen, 2 great missionaries that are going home!

My new companion will be Elder Hoppe! I think he is from Germany. I hear he is a great, hard working missionary so I am excited. 🙂

Sean accepted baptism this week, but still can’t come to church. We are trying to talk him into moving to Cork. That would be a miracle, so keep praying! We saw him a few times this week and got to watch Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration with him. Such a good movie. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that he wouldn’t endure so many trials and give up his life for a made up belief or religion. I know that he restored Christ’s church on the earth and that the Book of Mormon is true. And if you don’t, you can find out for yourself!
Moroni 10:4-5
And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.

I love you all and have a great week!
