I can tell you right now there is nothing better that you can hear on the first lesson!

Bulgaria is well this week, we had a ton of lessons and one of our investigators set a date for baptism in a couple weeks.  We met with him for lessons every single day this week and he came to church and is keeping all of his commitments and is very sincere so I am very excited for him and all he is doing!
There was another big holiday this week on the 24.  They have alphabet day where they celebrate getting the alphabet. And also from the 24th to the 30 they have the graduation celebrations for people finishing 12th class, so there are tons of people driving around in nice cars and going to restaurants.
Also this week when the Assistants came down they all have served here so we went and visited some of their former investigators and people they worked with.  We got a few new people to continue to work with from that! One really cool family and the sisters are even working with the parents of the wife so things are going pretty well here with investigators and teaching!
We found one really cool guy this week and it is amazing how some people are prepared.  I had talked to him on the street and the next day we had set up a time to meet but he didn't show up and his phone was off. But I didn't want to give up on him so the next day I was able to get a hold of him and set up another lesson and this time he came and we were getting to know him a little and we found out that he was fasting and was praying and searching for the truth.  I can tell you right now there is nothing better that you can hear on the first lesson. The lesson went really well the spirit was there and at the end as he said a prayer he thanked God for answering his prayers and we have another lesson with him tonight!
So things are going really well and we'll just keep working!

Have a great week! I love you all!
