A Brief Glimpse: The EU Referendum, June 24, 2016


A brief glimpse of the United Kingdom's EU Referendum that took place on June 24, 2016.  The people of the United Kingdom were voting whether they should remain as members of the European Union or to leave.





The reasons for and against
Those who favor leaving argue that the European Union has changed enormously over the last four decades with regard to the size and the reach of its bureaucracy, diminishing British influence and sovereignty.

Those who want to stay say that a medium-size island needs to be part of a larger bloc of like-minded countries to have real influence and security in the world, and that leaving would be economically costly.

What is the history?
The European Union began in 1951 as the European Coal and Steel Community, an effort by six nations to heal the fissures of World War II through duty-free trade. In 1957, the Treaty of Rome created the European Economic Community, or Common Market.
Britain tried to join later, but President Charles de Gaulle of France vetoed its application in 1963 and in 1967. Britain finally joined in 1973.

Is this vote final?
Yes, at least for the foreseeable future. If Britons vote to leave, there will be an initial two-year negotiation with the European Union about the terms of the divorce, which is unlikely to be amicable.
The negotiation will decide Britain’s relationship with the bloc. The major issues would surround trade. If Britain wants to remain in the European Union’s common market — the world’s largest trading bloc, with 500 million people — Brussels is expected to exact a steep price, in particular to discourage other countries from leaving.

Till The Work Is Done ...

Hello everyone.

So this last week was another depressing week in work wise but hey you get them every now and then.

We got a new friend to teach named Ibed (think that's his name, I apologize if I got the spelling wrong).

Had a lot of fall throughs again but hope to have some success this week being the last week for me in the field.

Not sure if I'll have time to email next week so just like to leave off by saying thank you to all who have stuck with me in this grand adventure and supported me with their prayers.

I love you all very much and want you all to know that I know that this is the Lord's work. God lives. He is our Loving Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus is the Christ, the Saviour and Redeemer of the World and His Atonement is Infinite in all things.

Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

As Paul said long of old:
"I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course."

Now I must go home and keep the faith.

Take care and God bless you all!

Love yous all,

Scotland/Ireland Mission Song:

"Our misison in life is to bring to the Lord
souls that are precious to preach his word.
From Dublin and Lim'ric Galway Belfast
Donegal to all the emerald isle.
For miles and miles o'er land and see,
teach the gospel truth to those who believe

Till the work is done, united we will be as one
Royal strong and true - till the saviour says the work is done.

We thank God for His spirit that carries us forth
to share all the love that has in store for the highlands 
and islands and all in between
Edinburgh Glasgow Dundee Aberdeen
For miles and miles o'er land and see,
teach the gospel truth to those who believe

Till the work is done, united we will be as one
Royal strong and true - till the saviour says the work is done.

Like Nephi of old we will go and be true
For we pray each day
He'll prepare the way to accomplish all he asks us to do

Till the work is done united we will be as one
Strong and true till the Saviour says the work is done"

All You Can Do Is Bring The Spirit...

Heya everyone!

So this week was a little disappointing in the fact that Jade dropped us on account of not being willing, at this time, to live according to Church standards.

We're still on good terms with her though and she said she might try again in the future but at the present time she's not ready.

We also had our friend Panos send us an interesting message that went along the lines of "Sorry haven't gotten back to you had a bad week. Leaving the country tonight, thanks for the book!"..... nuff said "something" hit the fan for him in some way or another.

We spent some time in Dublin this week with blitzing the area and also for zone interview training.

Met with some new people, a nice guy named Shane who had a car crash which lead him to believe God is there. He gave the closing prayer at the end and it was a very sincere humble prayer!

Met with a guy named Khan and his brother and co-worker in their store and taught a little about the Restoration but they are Muslim in the middle of doing their Ramadan fasting at the moment.

We met with a guy named Andrew right before church yesterday and invited him to be baptized in the lesson because he was feeling the Spirit but he wouldn't accept a date but hey all you can do is bring the Spirit unto them and invite.

That's it for this week take care!

Love yous all,

Elder Tarbet (Wolverine)

PS. Forgot to mention we tried getting in contact with Hussain this last week because he was supposed to come back on Wed and we were told he is still in London and wont be back for awhile. All we know at the moment :(


Received a very welcome surprise on Tuesday, July 14, 2016 from members visiting Dublin from Utah:


Also a big thank you to Sister Samantha Gorman for sharing pictures on Sunday, Father's Day. Her kindness and thoughtfulness in helping these two choice Elders be apart of Father's Day for their dads was and is greatly appreciated.



Father's Day in Ireland

Father's Day in Ireland is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, the same day when several other countries observe it. The celebrations in Ireland too are somewhat on the same line as it is celebrated in other parts of the world. It is seen as an opportunity for the people to honor their father and express love, affection and gratitude for them. Like in many other countries, people indulge their father by presenting them with loads of gifts and allowing them a day of fun, joy and rest. The grownups take their fathers out for dinner or lunch; take them to their favorite sporting events and so on. It is seen as a day to give all the happiness and comfort to fathers, by giving them the opportunity to fulfill all their small dreams on this day. It is a day also to convey this message to their fathers that how much they respect and appreciate them, and how much they are lucky and thankful to have them as their father. It is a day of sharing love, affection and thankfulness in Ireland.

An Off Week in Dundalk!


So we had an off week this last week. 

Sad to say we only had 3 lessons in the whole week and all the rest of our appointments fell through.

All 3 of those lessons was with Jade and at the moment she is deciding if she wants to go through with the baptism due to personal struggles she is facing at this time so please keep her in your prayers. 

Other than that we just been finding and trying to set up appointments for the week. 

No funny stories this week sadly :(

Take care!

Love yous all,

A Blessed Week!

Hiya everyone,

So this week we were quite blessed!

We were teaching our friend Jade most of the week, almost every day and in a span of a week she went from not knowing God is there to knowing that He's there and answers prayers! :)

She will be getting baptized on June 25 please keep her in your prayers that she'll be able to make it to church these next few Sundays.

We dropped Sheraz this week due to him not wanting to learn about our message or the church, he more or less just wants to meet up to question against our message.

A tender mercy that came right after, was after the lesson we were both pretty drained spiritually and I was in the mood for ice cream but didn't have the money to get it. Well our friend Kazir ended up buying us some while we walked by him while he was buying some. Heavenly Father truly knows the desires of our hearts haha!

We met up with Ian but he dropped us because he is going on vacation to Spain all of July but we are going to try and have him come out to church when he's back in August.

We taught Kazir yesterday the GOJC (Gospel of Jesus Christ).

Another TM (tender mercy) we had was last Monday we were low on cash (25 euros between us both) and we had to pay for both groceries and internet café so we weren't going to have enough. Well on our way to go shop Elder Corcran saw a tenor on the side of a building. Miracle!

Other than that just been enjoying finding in the sunshine since its been out all week.

Met some people named Patrick, Lauren, and Jacklyn so hope to meet with them.

Take care of yourselves.

Love yous all,

Elder Tarbet (Wolverine)
