Things are going well, looking for the elect and building up the branch here!

So this week was pretty awesome, zone conference was incredible and we had a lot of success finding!

Like I said last week, President Bennett from the seventies (he is in the East Europe Area presidency) was here for zone conference and it was very enlightening. And on Sunday, he was here for church and he taught the second and third hours.  He was talking about the blessings of having a stake and how we will get to that point (through member missionary work).  Towards the end, he had all of us missionaries come up to the front and he was all, "these missionaries were just taught how to lead and teach fun family home evening lessons" (one of the things from zone conf.) and then he asked, "who would invite a friend over and have a family home evening with the missionaries?" and he continued until all four companionships had plans to either work with or teach members every night of the week!! So tonight we've got a couple families we are doing FHE with and we have a busy week ahead of us! It was wonderful being able to listen to President Bennett teach at zone conference and in church and this week I am lucky enough to have a mission council with him too!

The work is going really well here in Sofia, we have great members who help us out and now even more members and we have some pretty neat investigators, (hopefully soon with baptismal dates) and our branch mission leader is amazing and inspired! 

For P-day today, we went and played soccer with a couple other elders and some of the African refugees that are members here in Sofia, which reminds me of a cool story - we found one guy from Africa tracting this week, he is here playing soccer and has been here for 10 years, we are meeting with him again tomorrow - he also has a giant dog and a brother named Moses!

Things are going well, looking for the elect and building up the branch here!
Love you all!! Have a great week!!
