Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Oh man St. Patrick's day was crazy! There were soo many people everywhere. The whole city smelled of alcohol also. We were asked not to proselyte so we went to members homes, and hung out with one of the recent converts. I loved those pictures you sent, and I am glad everyone is alive and happy. We asked some Irish people if pinching someone if they are not wearing green is an Irish tradition and they said it was not. Yesterday church was so great because there were many less actives and investigators at church. Also there were a few families from America visiting as well. 
   Earlier today we rode down a pathway through this grassy field and a couple dogs started to chase us. It was probably the most missionary feeling thing ever.
   We are finding some of the coolest people ever to teach, and I am very excited for the next couple weeks of this transfer. I hope you all have a great week.

New Calling in Life

This week was pretty great. The other team here in Galway had a baptism! They baptised a super cool teenager from Malawi. We got to go see him be baptised down in Limerick. It was a great service and a lot of the branch was able to travel out to see the service. We taught a few new people and they were great. I led the music at the baptism, I think I found my calling in life. 
   Funny story... Yesterday before church I gave Elder Blosil the phone, and we went to church. We were going to meet some people at the Bus stop by the church and he thought he left the phone in his jacket at the church. After church he checked his jacket and the phone wasn't there. So we went throughout the day thinking we left it back at the apartment. 
That night we had the other elders call it and we heard nothing... This morning we went to the church to look for it and we called it again and someone answered it! It was a really nice lady who had found it and picked it up. We went to her house and got it. Haha my miracle of the day.
I was also asked to speak this Sunday on Forgiveness, I am excited to have something specific to study for this week!
I love you all and hope you are great.
