Outnumbered 23 to 1

Sister Cardon traveled by train, plane, bus and ferry to pick up Sister Pitcher from the mission home. The best part of the journey was flying by plane and being able to see both Ireland and Scotland from the air! She loved staying in the mission home and having some "home made meals!" There were 23 training Elders picking up their new missionaries. She was the one training Sister picking up her new missionary! After getting back home again, she had to find a new flat  in Londonderry.
  Sister Cardon shares, "This week in Londonderry they are having celebration of the Fleadh Cheoil. We usually just call it the Fleadh (that Irish for Flah). Anyway the Fleadh is a week long huge all Ireland music festival. So basically there are go to be hundreds of thousands of tourist in Derry for the next week. The Church is going to have a Family History stand that we are going to be working at and/or handing out flyers a lot of the week. So this week will also be really interesting. It's different not having Sister Ryan there to rely on her to guide me and tell me what to do.  I am responsible for the area now and the success of the area. Its kind of a scary thought, but really very humbling knowing that I basically have no one to turn to for help except the Lord."
