Workin' for the Weekend....and every other day!!

Helloooooo erbody! It's been a pretty good week, we've met some incredible people and made a lot of good memories! 
We got to learn Irish Sign Language from a deaf man, Sean, in our ward. It was pretty cool, but not gonna lie, American Sign Language makes a ton more sense in my head!

We went on exchanges twice this week, it was really fun. Once with Sister Fisher, who is just the sweetest human being on earth. Then with Sister Bradley, who is new to the mission.  Both were a ton of fun! 
Sweeping the driveway with my friend, Danny!
Highlight of the week: We got to do hardcore yard work on Saturday! Our friend, Ali, has an awesome house that she rents out on AirBRN. Two travelers that came through are members of the church from Texas. They invited her to church and she loved it! She has recently broken her foot, so a group of us went over and helped out around the house. IT WAS SO FUN! She's also a gourmet chef, so dinner wasn't bad at all.... :) We shared the Book of Mormon with her and with Anna, an Italian girl staying with Ali. They both absolutely loved it! They loved the historical background of the Nephites and the Lamanites and how Jesus Christ visited more than just Jerusalem when he was resurrected. It was hands down the coolest lesson I have ever been a part of!

Yard work crew stops for lunch!
 MLC is this next week, so we're flying out to Edinburgh Thursday morning, having a bomb diggity inspiring council, and then flying back to Dublin on Thursday night. I'll have some fun stories and cool pictures next week!

2 Nephi 26:24 is a scripture that has come to mean more and more to me on my mission. Everything Jesus Christ did while he was on Earth, He did for us. He set the example of how we can be perfect, and then suffered for us so we can have that chance to try again and again. None of us will get it right the first time, but that's alright. We realize what we need to change, and then we need to actually change it. Christ already paid the price for our mistakes. It's the greatest show of love we could ever experience! 

Love you all!!
