We had a quick week and visited a castle yesterday! It was one of the many castles known as ‘Dracula's Castle.’ If you've read Bram Stokers Dracula, you'll know that he was into the real estate business and had a few summer and winter homes. We had to travel quite a ways and got to see how Romania is supposed to look. You know, beautiful and not communist – Haha!
We have zone conference tomorrow and it will be President Hill’s last. He will give his "dying testimony" and will be leaving in just 3 short weeks. Pretty sad considering he is so cool and fairly laid back for a Mission President!
Work is still going pretty slow and church this week didn’t go so hot! Our Branch President pointed out the fact that the room is half empty and it feels like there is a lack of faith in everyone, including missionaries! Trying to use it as motivation, but at the same time, I feel like it’s time to get out of Ploiesti and get a fresh start.
I’m doing ok and excited for the summer, happy that everyone is doing alright. I just have to go and try to get our water turned back on in our apartment – Haha! Don’t worry mom, If worst comes to worst, we will stay with the other Elders and shower there!
Love you guys and miss you all!
