Тази седмица ще се върна на морето!!

So we got transfer calls this week and I'm headed back over to the other side of the country to serve in Varna! I am super excited, there is a pretty big branch there and I have heard lots of good things about them! And I will get to serve with Elder Hoy from my MTC group he is from Canada and he is pretty awesome!!

Ben you need to get your call already so you can start getting ready to come to Bulgaria!!

I am doing well, we had a pretty good week it felt a little bit slower, a couple of our investigators are out on vacation so we weren't able to meet with them at all this week. It is okay, we found a cool new family this week and had a really good lesson with them last night.  Also, last night after our lesson, we still had some time so we did some tracting and found a couple more people.  Then, we didn't have enough time to do a complete fode or set of apartments, but we still had a little time so we were just walking back trying to talk with people and we talked with a couple guys from Yemen, they were really cool.  They spoke very good Bulgarian but not much English, so that was cool, it was interesting to hear an Arabian accent with Bulgarian. They are here in the city studying for their doctorate and we got their numbers to meet with them again sometime!!

It is pretty cool all the different people that we meet and talk with, it makes for a very unique experience! It makes it even better that I am here to share the message of the restored gospel which really helps them in their life's it is amazing to see how it can change their life! Our recent convert is so excited he is a member and is inviting his friends to learn more and meet with us and he is helping us out in a lot of lessons. He really is a different person from when we first met him!

People, in general here, are pretty shut to us as missionaries and I've had my fair share of rude people. The mission has been focusing on working with the members and building relationships with them and, even in the time that I have been here, I have seen a change in how the members feel about the missionaries and the overall progression of the work. There are people here who have been prepared to receive the gospel in their lives and we just have to find them, as we work with the members and do everything we can, we will find them and we will help others to be ready to accept the gospel. There are many wonderful people here in Bulgaria and I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve them even though it may be a little frustrating at times. 
Have a super week!!
Love from,
Elder Maxwell
