So on Tuesday we went to Dublin for an All-Ireland Zone Conference and it was awesome. I learned so much 🙂 Then on Wednesday (back in Cork) the assistants, the zone leaders, and sister training leaders were all in our city! We had 12 missionaries for a day instead of 6 🙂 I was with Elder Haller who is an assistant. We had a great day of finding and teaching. We set up 20 appointments in just a few short hours. Lots of great work happened this week. We taught a lot of new people as well. Sean hasn’t answered his phone for almost 2 weeks 😦 but besides that, we had loads of success. Taught almost the same number of lessons in the past 3 weeks, in just this week. I am loving it here 🙂
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. I know that if we love God, everything will be alright in the end! Good things will happen if we love God and SHOW Him that we love Him. I love God and all of you! Have a great week!

And happy birthday to me hahaha! Finally 19 🙂 Hello! How are you all?
This week was really fun! We taught Hannes again! At the church this time, so no drunk people could rudely interrupt us. He is doing good. Sean didn’t come to church for some reason :(((( We haven’t been able to get in contact with him yet to ask him why. We played soccer in the rain on Saturday which was a blast, and I got to Skype the family yesterday! Well, technically it was a Google Hangout because everyone is all over america, but it was amazing. It’s really good to know that everyone is safe and sound back home.
I just wanted to thank my mother for everything she has done for me. It really takes a mission to truly appreciate everything that mothers do. I miss home cooked meals, support from gym bleachers and theater seats, and family home evenings. My mom is one of the greatest examples in my life of diligence, hard work, love, and sacrifice. I love you Mom!
Have a great week everyone 🙂
