It's been another great week for us in Bratislava. Elder Clem and I
are having a blast together. We are starting to lose track of
time--which is always a good sign. It means you're too wrapped up in
what's happening around you to worry about how long it's taken.
I had an exchange with Elder Nichol--that was fun. It's amazing to me
that we've known each other for nearly 2 years already. Two years is a
long time--but it flies by. Elder Clem and I are getting close to
breaking some Bratislava district numbers, and that is very exciting.
We've been really motivated to go out and just do our best and it's
paying off. We are meeting with a lot of interesting people that are
progressing nicely. We're just hoping and praying that they continue
and start coming to church! That's been a huge challenge for us
lately: getting people to church. They can't join the church if they
don't go to it. Part of the big mission vision is to get a new
building in Bratislava-this one is a little too small for what we
want/need, but to get it we need to start getting around 50 people to
church every week. We're about 10 people short of that goal, so we're
just plugging along trying to invite the in-actives back and finding
I love being back here- I wasn't here for very long last year and it's
been good to get back and see how much the branch has changed and
grown and help it move along. The members here have supported us so
much in teaching with us and fellowshipping our investigators. Nothing
beats member work :)
Emily: did you know that both of our companions are from Florida?!
He's from Tampa. Where is yours from? ps if I send in a referral to HQ
do you get those?? We have an investigator from Georgia (the country,
I'm in Europe you know) who is going to the US to work and then to
Holland for school.
Logan: I'm so excited for you! So much is happening for you right now!
Isn't it exciting?? (I sent you a letter, a response would be nice,
but I won't hold my breath...)
I hope you all have a great and happy week! Looking forward to talking
to you next time!
ps Mom, I got the picture book from Aunt Patti-- I sent them a letter
thanking them. It was perfect! I got it right before I left Zilina.
