Grand like So it is! Moves Call‏

Hey, Hey!! I would first like to thank all of you for the prayers you have given us! We have seen miracles! We had some amazing works happen for us. 

Belfast City Hall
    Biggest miracle of the week had to have been finding... well, S________ finding us! We had a huge group of people walk by us probably like 20-30 people. So I started speaking to all of them about Christmas while Elder Mulville was talking to individual people who would stop to listen. After the group walked by I told them what church we were from and a man behind us stopped and Elder Mulville and I ran over to him and he said, "I couldn't find your church last Sunday. I went to look for it and couldn't find it." We than got his contact info and set up an appointment to meet the next evening.

    We met with S_________ the next night and taught about how he can feel the Holy Spirit. We taught the role of the Holy Spirit as well. We then proceeded on to watch the restoration DVD. When he watched the part where Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ... He paused and then looked me in the eyes with the biggest, happiest, most excited child like smile I have ever seen. He told us he felt the Spirit. We then invited him to be baptized and he was so excited. In a broken accent, "yes."

   He came to church yesterday and loved it. He is going to bring his 7 friends next time. I'm so excited. He is truly a miracle from my Loving Father in Heaven.

   This week we taught an African family. A mother and 2 kids, whose father has just died. They are so good but the mothers depression is bringing her a sadness so we won't be able to teach her...Please oh please pray for her health and to recognize the closeness they felt to their God!

   We had Moves call. Every one is staying the same in Holywood. In our Zone we only have 1 person out of 28 moving so its pretty good.  I will have Christmas in Norn Iron again. (: Also I will have another 7 weeks in the Best City on Earth! Belfast is the BEST!! 

  God lives and loves us so much that he did give his son and he also gives us what we stand in need of at specific times... according to our faith and our diligence.

 "The Walled City"--Derry is the only remaining completely intact walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe. The walls constitute the largest monument in State care in Northern Ireland and, as the last walled city to be built in Europe, stands as the most complete and spectacular.
The Walls were built during the period 1613–1619 by The Honourable The Irish Society as defences for early 17th century settlers from England and Scotland. The Walls, which are approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) in circumference and which vary in height and width between 3.7 and 10.7 metres (12 and 35 feet), are completely intact and form a walkway around the inner city. They provide a unique promenade to view the layout of the original town which still preserves its Renaissance style street plan. The four original gates to the Walled City are Bishop's Gate, Ferryquay Gate, Butcher Gate and Shipquay Gate. Three further gates were added later, Magazine Gate, Castle Gate and New Gate, making seven gates in total. Historic buildings within the walls include the 1633 Gothic cathedral of St Columb, the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall and the courthouse.
It is one of the few cities in Europe that never saw its fortifications breached, withstanding several sieges including one in 1689 which lasted 105 days, hence the city's nickname, The Maiden City.
