So just to let you know how moves or transfers works, we get a call on Sunday night letting us know what is happening. Then on Monday we email family to let them know what is happening. Then Wednesday is P-day or travel day for those that are leaving!
So I am officially staying in Mullingar for another 6 weeks which is what I was hoping for! Elder Goldie is leaving, which we were both kinda bummed about. We knew it would probably happen but we were hoping we could both stay together for one more moves cause the work here in Mullingar is starting to look up! My new companion is coming over from Scotland, and he is from Rome, Italy! His name is Elder Celestini, he's gonna be my senior companion and he's been out about 8 or 9 months I think. He's 6 weeks ahead of Elder Goldie. I'm really excited because I've heard he's a hard worker and that's exactly what the area needs right now! So yeah I'm pretty pumped! I also can't believe that it's already been 3 months since I left. That's an eighth of my mission gone already! It's going to fast, although I've realized an important principle. So far on my mission I've been thinking of how fast the 2 years go by and how I don't want it to go by fast. I don't want to stop sharing the gospel and go home when the 2 years is up. But then I realized I don't have to stop sharing the gospel when I go home after 2 years. I can share the gospel every day of my life if I want to! No one ever said that after the mission we have to stop! We can share the gospel with someone every single day. I know that it's not some new principle I've learned, but since I've been out I think I've understood more how I can share the gospel every day of my life, not just every day of my mission.
Love you all so much!
Dude I'm in Ireland, so there are no bagpipes at all! Haha bagpipes are a Scottish thing. Bro you need to do some research! hahah just kidding buddy. I'm hoping to stay in Ireland my whole mission but that probably won't happen. I really want to go to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Missionaries usually get some cool stories there! By the way to give you guys a little more info on our mission, there really are 3 countries that it covers. Ireland and Northern Ireland are NOT the same country. The 2 kinda hate each other so I wouldn't get those confused! haha
