This week we had a much better week.
The Lord truly blessed us with having a 900% increase of lessons (9 lessons haha)!
We got to teach quite a few people though some of the lessons we didn't consider to be investigators.
One of them was a referral named Francis who when we went to teach him was drunk. He said he had read through half the BOM and read the Bible but didn't have either of them (said they were in his head), said that he saw Jesus and that Jesus spoke to him and told him that Jesus wasn't really a Jew but a slave to the Jews.... interesting fellow.
The other one his name was Dadiz and he is Muslim who won’t read the BOM so our meeting with him kinda stops there.
Of our more promising lessons we taught a guy named Sharez who is also Muslim but he felt the Spirit quite strongly to where he said if the BOM is true he’d follow us to do anything.
Two days later though he went online and looked up stuff about the BOM and that set him back a little bit. He has a baptism date for the 11th of June.
We also got Andrew, Sylvester's cousin, with a date for the 4th of June after teaching a very spiritual Restoration lesson in Sylvester's home :)
Oussain is still waiting on his visa at the moment sad to say.
We also met this really cool guy named Lucky who is from India who has been giving us referrals of people to teach but he himself isn't that interested but slowly we are becoming friends with him so things can change ;)
Thank you for all your prayers for us and the area.
Love you all and take care!

Dundalk (from Irish Dún Dealgan, meaning "Dalgan's stronghold", a Fir Bolg Chieftain) is the county town of County Louth, Ireland. It is on the Castletown River, which flows into Dundalk Bay, and is close to the border with Northern Ireland, equidistant from Dublin and Belfast. Its name, historically Dún Dealgan, has associations with the mythical warrior Cú Chulainn.

The Dundalk area has been inhabited since at least 3500 BC, in the Neolithic period. A tangible reminder of their presence can still be seen in the form of the Proleek Dolmen, the eroded remains of a megalithic tomb located at Ballymascanlon 2 miles (3.2 km) to the north of Dundalk. Celtic culture arrived in Ireland around 500 BC. According to the legendary historical accounts, the group settled in North Louth were known as the Conaille Muirtheimne and took their name from Conaill Carnagh, legendary chief of the Red Branch Knights of Ulster. Their land now forms upper and lower Dundalk.
Dundalk had been originally developed as an unwalled Sráid Bhaile (meaning village; translates literally as "Street Townland"). The streets passed along a gravel ridge which runs from the present day Bridge Street in the North, through Church Street to Clanbrassil Street to Earl Street, and finally to Dublin Street.(For more information see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dundalk)
