This will be another shorter email because I want to go explore Ireland :) But this week has been mighty fine! There were two pretty big and exciting things that happened this week that I’d like to focus on for this email.
First was another lesson we had with Charlotte. Charlotte has been going to church and learning about the gospel for quite some time now, but every time we have tried to get her to commit to something she always takes a step back. We have been constantly fasting and praying for her that she would commit to a baptismal date. As Elder Schmidt and I drove out to their home in the countryside we carried that prayer in our hearts and into our lesson. Right from the start the gift of the spirit was strong, we could all (Even Charlotte) Recognize it. We went over the gospel of Jesus Christ over and over again, this time focusing on repentance. We were all filled with joy as we testified of the love and mercy that God has for each of us. We know that we can be forgiven of all of our mistakes. With this knowledge and the guidance of the Holy Ghost we invited Charlotte to be baptized once again. This time she accepted and agreed to working towards a date near the beginning of March! God as a plan and a purpose for each of us! We just have to let him guide the way.
The other big new we got this week came in a phone call from President. He said that he had an assignment for Elder Schmidt and me. He continued to speak of two lads down in Cork who wanted to go on a mini mission to see if it was for them. Starting on Saturday it will be our job to show them the ways of missionary life in a four man flat in Mullingar. It's going to be a great learning experience for all of us, and hopefully by the time they are done with us they will want to go and do the real deal! I'm sure we will have a lot of fun. Please pray for these new fellas, that they have a good and uplifting experience!
Thank you for your love and prayers. I love you!
Love, Elder Brycen Cluster
