Hey guys so this week we had an Irish winter wonderland. We got about an inch or two of snow (pretty wimpy to back home) but the rest of the country got about ten to twelve inches. It's pretty rare for Ireland to get a lot of snow so they shut down all the shops, trains, buses, and schools all across Ireland for a few days. All the missionaries in our zone got told to stay inside for about two days. So we spent a lot of time calling everyone on the phone and memorizing Joseph Smith History because we had been invited to do so by our zone leaders. The snow here in Sligo melted after about a day so we didn't have an opportunities to shovel any walks but everything was still cancelled so we weren't able to meet with any of the people we planned. Elder Derry and I were suprised that such a small amount of snow could bring the town to a halt. Back home it would take a foot or two of snow to cancel anything. Other places like Mullingar and Dublin had enough snow that church was cancelled yesterday. Sligo was the only unit that met yesterday. We only had sacrament meeting though because some members have an hour or so drive to get back home. Testimony meeting was fantastic though we were small in numbers. We did teach a couple of lessons but the people we taught weren't able to meet with us again since they were leaving for Canada this week. The lesson that we teach the most is the restoration. We haven't been able to get a hold of Ovis or Edna yet though we stopped by her house a few days ago but she wasn't in. We got a few appointments set up for this week though.
As far as St. Patrick's day goes there haven't been any decorations up yet. I'm sure there will be in the next week or so.
I love you guys,
I hope you have a great week!
