Kebab-tized, an Olympic Gold Medalist and Obama!

Sister Cardon reports there are many people to talk to and they have been passing out many Books of Mormon as Londonderry has been awarded the City of Culture Award. This award brings many visitors for celebrations and events. She became a true Scotland/Irleland Missionary by being Kebab-tized by eating a delicious mystery meat wrap that all real missionaries eat! She was able to meet a Olympic Gold Medalist named Jason Symth. He has a "I'm a Mormon" profile on She encourages all to look him up. She also came very close to Obama. She did not see him, but his motor brigade passed her on the street and she waved!

Exchanges to Belfast

Sister Moore and Sister Cardon at the Hospital

Sister Cardon in Belfast
Sister Cardon reports another busy and productive week. She was surprised this week to be sent to Belfast on exchanges for two days. Usually a new missionary does not go on exchanges. However, she was sent to Belfast to help another sister learn how to train a "greenie." She loved being in Belfast and reports the sisters there live a "posh" life with a fancy flat! She has been working hard with her companions to get appointments to talk to people. The investigators they are now working with are "diamonds" according to Sister Cardon and she feels very blessed to be teaching them. Sister Moore had to go to the hospital due to a tight neck muscle that kept her from being able to move her head.

Mayhem and Miracles

The first question Juli asked this week was if anyone has seen the TV series "Hoarders" or "Buried Alive".
She explains that she had a first hand experience during service this week helping clean a house that could have made an appearance on one of those shows. She says that, "It was quite an adventure." she even got a brand new teddy bear out of it!


After mayhem however there's always miracles. During street contacting they were able to find a wonderful women who was ready to hear the message of the gospel. They gave her a tour of the branch building even the baptismal fount! Sister Cardon says, "that it was truly amazing"and that she knows that the Lord is leading them to find those who are really ready to recieve their message.
