It was good talking with you a bit.
Not too much new since I talked with you all yesterday, it was really good to see you all and I am still amazed at how much everyone has grown it is like they are different people but also the brothers and sisters that I have always known! It was good talking with you a bit.
So, I don't really have too much to say about the week, I guess I could tell you a little bit about the guy that we gave the baptismal date to. So last Sunday, on our way to church, we left a little bit early so we could talk to people on the way there and get everything set up and we had just barely left the apartment when we started talking to this guy. He asked us who we were and what we were doing so we quickly explained and invited him to come to church with us and he agreed and came! And he really liked it! It was fast Sunday and he was enjoying the testimonies and he got up and shared how he was looking for the truth and he was glad that he had run into us that morning. So we met with him during the week and began teaching him and he really wants a change in his life to leave behind his old vices and such and he has been looking for the right church and every time we meet he shares how he feels the spirit, how he wants to learn more! Sadly the other Elders are going to continue teaching him, as he lives in their area, but I am sure there are many others who are prepared just like him to learn and accept the gospel so all we have to do is find them and I'm sure as we work hard and do what we are supposed to the Lord will place these people in our path!
Oh, one thing from last night, yesterday was Shumen Day so last night they had a big concert just down the street from our apartment and they were launching huge fireworks off from the roof of the building across from us it was cool but a little bit challenging to get to sleep!
Thank you for your wonderful examples and I hope that you had a great Mother's Day!! Love you lots!!
