All Over the Emerald Isle!

What a great week! On Wednesday we drove to Belfast and back, on Thursday we were in Dublin, and on Friday we drove to Limerick and back.  At Zone Conferences, different teams of missionaries instruct the zone (around 20 missionaries) on different missionary skills and things that are good to know. It's always a very uplifting meeting and I love how the instructions are different for each zone to help personalize what is needed. President Donaldson comes to every one and sits down with every missionary for a bit to catch up. I don't know how he does it, he is the best! He loves all the missionaries here so much! I'm so happy to be able to call him my friend :)

We went on two exchanges this week. I was with Sister McOmber and Sister Ligertwood. Both of them are such great missionaries and it was a blast to be with them for the day! 
We have a baptism this week!!!! Our friend Stephen is getting baptized on Saturday :) He is Irish ( Irish convert!!!) and we met him a couple weeks ago. We gave him a Book of Mormon, and when we saw him the next day, he had read 12 chapters of it!! He is sooooo golden, he loves coming to church, he loves reading the Book of Mormon, and he just gets the gospel! I'll send pics next week :) :)
On our road trip to Limerick, there was a petrol station named the  'Barack Obama Plaza'. So naturally, we went to check it out. Turns out that Obama visited this petrol station years ago, and so they named the whole flippin plaza after him. It's literally a gas station in the middle of nowhere. Obama stopped in for a second, and they named the whole thing after him. It's the best thing ever. 
This week we talked a lot about how the Spirit guides us in everything. 2 Nephi 32:5 shared about how the Holy Ghost will show us what we should do, if we do our part and "enter in by the way". We need to turn to God for help, trusting we will receive an answer. Then we can be led in all things. And boy, do we need it. There is a lot of craziness in the world today, and we are all at stages where we need to make important decisions about our future. Luckily, the Holy Ghost is given to us to guide us in the right direction.
Love you lots, have a great week!!!
