Yesterday was British Mother’s Day, or as I like to call it, Mum’s Day! So Happy Mum’s Day Mum! I love my mother. She has made me who I am today. Thank you for everything you have taught me. I know I wouldn’t be back here in Scotland if it weren’t for you. I feel a lot like the 2000 Stripling Warriors in Alma 56:47 Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them. Thank you for always supporting me Mom and teaching me that God will deliver me.

Summer is starting down here in Cork! The weather is beautiful and I am loving it. Moves Call was last night and Elder Hoppe is leaving me! It is sad to see him come and go in just 6 weeks, but I enjoyed my time with him! And for my new assignment… I am training a new missionary! AHHHHH! 🙂 I am so excited. I have wanted to train my whole mission and now I have the opportunity to. I know that it will be a great learning process for me, but I know that the Lord’s ways are higher than our ways, so I can’t wait to see what will happen.
This week was great! We saw Gabriela a lot this week and she has a baptismal date for this Saturday! We were able to go support her in a piano recital she had on Friday. She did great! She came to church again and even played the organ for us! So cool. Things are looking great.
My favorite book in The Book of Mormon is Enos. Enos 1:3-6 Behold, I went to hunt beasts in the forests; and the words which I had often heard my father speak concerning eternal life, and the joy of the saints, sunk deep into my heart. And my soul hungered; and I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer and supplication for mine own soul; and all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came I did still raise my voice high that it reached the heavens. And there came a voice unto me, saying: Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou shalt be blessed. And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie; wherefore, my guilt was swept away. I love this illustration of pondering, praying, faith, and repentance. Enos had such great faith in the coming of Jesus Christ, that he was forgiven of his sins. He prayed all day and all night to recieve an answer to prayer. How many times do we pray for something once, then give up because we don’t recieve and answer right then? If we follow Enos’s example, we too can be blessed with remission of sins, great faith, and a greater knowledge of who God is.
I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
Irish Word of the Week: Trainer=Traenálaí
This week was great! I had the opportunity to help the other elders here in Cork with their investigator Conor! He was able to enter the waters of baptism on Saturday. He asked me to speak about baptism in the service and it went great! The Spirit was so strong. Our investigator Gabriela came to the baptism and to church and she really enjoyed it! She is showing a lot of interest and commitment so I am looking forward to see what will happen 🙂 Besides that, not much happened this week!
I began reading The Infinite Atonement by Tad R. Callister this week and I have began to recognize just how important the atonement is. The more we understand it, the more we understand the meaning of life, love, sacrifice, obedience, faith, repentance, resurrection, submissiveness, charity, and countless other principles and attributes. Study the atonement and it will change your life!
I love you all and have a great week!
