Christmas In Ireland so Good To me Round 2

Skype call with Elder Penman, Ray, Dad, and Mom on Christmas Day
Elder Penman received a "mustache"
at the Shearers' house
Wow-zer! I cannae believe its been a year since last Christmas! It honestly feels like a few weeks ago that I was down in Omagh! I love it here in Belfast so much. The members really spoiled us like we were their own children or even grandchildren. Our shelves are full of more food than I have ever seen. 

Elders Mulville, Wilson, Parkinson also
sporting their mustaches at Shearers
I loved being able to sit and take a breather this last Friday and Saturday! It was a great time to crash. We went to Sister Sheils, The Entwistle's, the Shearers, Eddie and Joanne's, and Sister Armstrong and to finish the break off we had a baptismal service for the other Elders (Parkinson & Wilson). It was great. What a weekend.

Alicia was found during the "Belfast Blitz" back in October

   I don't know if any of you tried the challenge I gave you but I did and I have come to know the Savior so much more through the Holy Spirit. I Know Jesus the Christ lives and has a resurrected body just like our Father in Heaven's body! That is the greatest knowledge of all! 
Also I have been studying Faith in PMG (Preach My Gospel) and Alma 32!! WOW-O-Wow! There is some good stuff in there! Also the Virtue section in Personal Progress! Thats good Crack so it is! 
   The man S_______ we are teaching has decided to get baptized on the 23rd of January! So that will be exciting. We also are going to teach a new friend that is friends with a lady in the ward. He came to church last week and came back again because "he felt good and at home." He didn't really know who I was and what my purpose is. He told me "Don't tell anyone but I want to be baptized." I told him "that is great!!! I guide people on the path so they are ready for baptism." We are going to start teaching him this week.
