August 24th, 2015

I had alot to do So I apologize that I couldn't write much today. I want you to know the week has been great, so I will be taking snippits from Elder Petersons letter this week. 

This week has been the most successful week yet since I've been here and we didn't even have our car, which is crazy. We've had a lot of lessons. The biggest factor in that is the members who are willing to help out.

Tuesday we went out with Jimmy Nevin to work in the turf bogs. He has a bad back, so we offered to help him. It was so good to be able to wear jeans and a t-shirt for once. Plus there were no clouds and it was awesome. We would flip over the chunks of turf and stack them like a log house so they can dry. People here use it like firewood. 

Jimmy is doing great and he's really ready to be baptised. We taught the Word of Wisdom with President Holton. The only thing he needs to give up is tea, so that's good. We need to decide soon where to baptize him. We might end up doing it in a lake or else we would be asking the whole branch to travel to Dublin to support him. So I'm guessing it'll be in a lake. 

Azaria did come to church! As well as David Collins (one of our investigators)! He seemed to enjoy sacrament meeting. We taught him and his sister the other night. Michelle even said the closing prayer in the lesson! Which is a big step for her. They are coming along very well. 
Anyways, this week has been awesome. Those are just a few things that happened/ We have another good week ahead of us as well.

The work is going well love you all. 
I have much more to say but don't have time, this email would've been so short. But help from elder Peterson makes it decent length.
