I have Learned Much

Well I never thought that this email would come TOO fast! These last two years have not been the easiest, but it has been the best two years of my life and the best two years for my life.  I have truly found out who I am and I have come to love that person. I am just so thankful for the ability to have done all that I have.  I have met people that have changed my life forever and that I will never forget. I have truly gained a love for the people of Scotland and Ireland. I have learned so much that will make every day after my mission truly great. I know things will still be hard, and that I still have a lot more to learn but that makes me excited and I want to become better in all that I do. 
Mark 8:35 - “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it." This scripture truly says it all. I have gained more for giving up two years than I ever would have thought.  I love you and thank you for all that you have done.  (I will see you soon J)

Wow, the Time is Flying

May 11, 2015
It was wonderful to talk with you all yesterday!  I can't believe the end is coming so close! We will be very busy the next couple of weeks.  Jim didn't come to Church yesterday, I'm hoping he was just visiting his Mom or something.  
The Bryson's are coming to see me before I return home. They tell me they will pay for me to return to Belfast to attend the temple with them when they are sealed, hopefully later this year.
It's kind of weird, I hardly think about the fact that my mission is about to come to a close soon, I just keep working.

Over-seeing the land (and water) I've grown to love

The Holbrook Family

A random cat just came up and sat on my lap

RM Adam Holbrook and Elder Crocket.  My trainer came to visit me with his family!

No, don't worry, I have another set of shoes. I'll be fine. 
This week was pretty good.  We got to play flag football, a bunch of people got to show up and participate.  Then we got to paint the Adam's house because they are pretty much repainting the entire inside of their house. I love doing work like that. I'm so thankful that Dad brought us up doing work so we could learn how to help with things around the house, There have been so many times that I have used those skills on my mission. 
This week Jim brought Steph to the lesson. She used to be taught but I hadn't taught her yet and it was really great because we got to answer a BUNCH of questions that she had.
I'll have to give you an email later in the week of what time I'll be skyping because I haven't figured that all out yet.
