Here we are at the All Ireland Conference on May 9:
Such precious friends: our mission president and his wife,
Alan and Sylvia Brown,
and darling Elder Blake Barney
I opened a package of eggs one day and found proof that the chicken came before the egg:
Here are just a few shots of Ormond Castle in ... can't remember where! But it's only about 30 minutes away from Waterford.
This is me on the zipline at Ballyhass Lakes Resort. We were there with a YSA group from Limerick District. Twenty-seven young men and women between ages 18 and 30. I think I screamed all the way across the lake! But I'd do it again!
And here are more picture of the hike we took just today along the coast by Dunmore East:
The Sisters M&M: Montgomery and Martin. Sweet, but strong!
Sister Martin, violinist extraordinaire!
Elder Rogers is so soft-spoken that, if you're not careful, you miss the funny/smart things he says. I have learned a lot from him about humility and grace.
Here is Elder Rogers with Eymard Martin, a newly-ordained elder in Waterford. Eymard is greatly looking forward to receiving his endowment in the Salt Lake Temple this coming October when he comes to attend General Conference and visit with the sister missionaries who first taught him. Eymard had studied a great deal before he ever met the missionaries, so he was golden.
Here is our wonderful Elder Evans. I tried to crop this picture, but my program wouldn't cooperate. Anyway, Elder Evans is so special to us. Like Elder Rogers, he is very humble, but at the same time has such a great knowledge of the gospel for one so young. We absolutely loved every minute we spent with him.
I've got to stop here. It's 6 p.m. and we still have a lot to do to prepare for tomorrow - our last day in the mission and the only day we'll spend touring Dublin. This has been a wonderful, hard year. We're so glad we did it, but we're ready for home. Thanks to everyone who has helped us and prayed for us on this journey. God bless you all.
Elder and Sister Walker
