This week was a good one! Our friend Edna got baptized! She is from Brazil 🙂 Elder McCappin was able to be there and baptize her! He has been touring the mission with his parents and one of his brothers. It was so good to see him again and meet his family. His mom gave me TimTams! They are these super good chocolate cookies. Edna loved her baptism, but on Sunday morning she told me she would not be able to come to church to be confirmed. She is very sick and didn’t sleep all of Saturday night 😦 Please pray for Edna that she will get better and be able to make it to church next Sunday. Besides that, we are teaching a few new people 🙂 I will keep you all updated if anyone makes any crazy progress. I am loving my time in the city of Dublin! We have an All-Ireland conference tomorrow and I am very excited for that 🙂

A scripture this week that has helped one of our investigators, Juliane, and one of our recent converts, Justin, is Mosiah 2:41 And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it. When we keep the commandments, the Lord blesses us in ALL THINGS. What a beautiful doctrine. I love it. Keep the commandments everyone!
Have a great week 🙂
