This week was fabulous!
|District lunch at Haven Burger|
During our exchange, she showed us the new video for the youth theme, "Come Unto Christ". If you haven't seen it yet, stop everything and watch it. It is so good. What I love about it, is how they were able to relate the teachings of Christ to our day, and the typical trials that come.
We are doing very well. Everyday is an adventure. I am continuing to meet new people everyday. People from all sorts of backgrounds. I'm not sure if I told you about our Bulgarian friend. But we stopped by one day and found this guy from Bulgaria. He moved here to be free. He speaks very little English. He told us to come back in a year when he learns English better. Every time we drive by and see him, we honk and wave, and he blows us kisses. We decided to get a Book of Mormon, "The Living Chirst," and "The Family: A Proclamation to the World," in Bulgarian. Yesterday, we found him and gave them to him. He read the title of the book and said, "MORMONS! You're MORMONS! I read about you on the internet. There's one man with 10 wives and 50 kids!" We were like, "No, no, no, not true. Read this, not the internet." He then went on to say that he watches football (soccer) and doesn't read. So he didn't accept the Book of Mormon, but he did accept the other two documents. We're in the process of finding a returned missionary from Bulgaria that can talk to him.
My mission has changed me more that I could have ever thought possible. I am learning so much.
Thank you again, for all your prayers on my behalf, as well as on behalf of the missionaries all around the world. LOVE YOU ALL!!
