First up, thank you for the letters/ emails. I always appreciate them. :) It's good to hear how things are going.
has been a pretty good week-- all around the mission things are
happening and we're moving forward and it's exciting to watch. In my
particular area it's been a little harder to get the fire going. But
we're working hard and working smart and amidst it all we're happy. God
doesn't expect us to only have success, he's the giver of it anyway-
instead he just wants us to do our best and not be idle. And that is
what I am trying to do. Do my best. :) As a country we have about 20
people on date for baptism- which is absolutely amazing. The country
baptized 7 people my first year here. We have one investigator on plan
that we are really excited about-- she has a lot of things to work
through and lives pretty far- but she has a firm testimony that the Book
of Mormon is true. When we know that, ain't nothing standing in the
way. So I'm confident she'll make it. Send me some good vibes! She is
extremely anxious for Uncle Randy and asks about him constantly. She's
amazed at the faith he has -especially in the priesthood blessings he's
received. We're pulling for you Uncle Randy! :)
I don't have much else to report, just a thank you in advance to Grandma
Marilyn for the upcoming birthday package! You all know you don't have
to send me anything, right? Just spoil me when I get home. ;) But I do
I forgot to mention something from a couple weeks ago. I got a call from
my favorite AP, Elder Nichol and apparently when was introducing
himself to some members in Prague this woman came up to him and said, "I
know who you are. You served in Bratislava with Elder Williams" He was
surprised and asked how she knew that. She introduced herself as MARY!
You remember the secret postcard and birthday card I got from a random
person??-- turns out she is a member in Prague! She found my blog when
she was living in London and was really lonely-- but felt better reading
after my letters home. That mystery has finally been solved. I feel
like we helped each other. Her cards made me feel like I wasn't alone
either and that I there were people hoping and praying for my success.
So thanks again Mary!
Happy Anniversary Justin and Stephanie Morris! Is it
the 2nd one already? I've lost track of time... And happy 23rd to Katie
Watkins tomorrow! Whoa, you're old.
Love you and think of you all!
