Too many surprises!

Elder Penman, Ned, Jaqueline, Elder Mulville after Jaque's confirmation
So many blessings happened this week. We saw Jacqueline got baptized!!! We got to speak with Elder M. Russell Ballard and shake his hands!

   We started the week off by GQing in the 3 C degree rain. It was so fun!! Elder Mulville and I had a blast and talked to so many people. We are working with faith and a full-hearted belief that Gods will, will be done,  and when you work with faith and that full-hearted belief, days go by fast and
they are so much fun!!!!
   We were able to see the fruits from exercising our our faith in the last few days of our week. We had a 2 1/2 hour meeting with Elder Ballard. Wow! That was incredible. He taught a doctrine I had never thought about. He said it is harder for a spirit to repent than a soul on earth. He also said the addictions we carry in ourselves here will be with us when we are resurrected, that is why it is so important to repent in this life. When he shook our hands he told us that we have the best generation of teachers the church has ever seen. That man ordained of God is incredible!!!

and Jacque
   Jaque was baptized while we were in Dublin! It was amazing. It was so amazing when she personally invited Elder Mulville and I to be part of her confirmation! Talk about PURE JOY!! Ned, her boyfriend was telling us that they will be getting sealed in the temple in Brigham City Utah, in April 2017. So I will get to go to the temple when the do their temple work and get sealed!!!!!!! That will be a great day!

   We are still teaching the Czech couple. They are not understanding everything but they are progressing slowly. The Romanian family is doing well. We are teaching so many people its unreal!!!

  I know very clearly that Apostles with the same authority Peter, John, Mark, Luke and the rest of the original Apostles had. I have seen and met two of them in person and their actions tell it all! The church is true.

Elder Penman

Doctrine and Covenants Section 123: 17 "Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed."

Some type of pastry.  Looks like an apple made to
look like a rose on the top
