This won’t be too stellar of an e-mail because we are in a hurry. We have zone training on Wednesday and have a lot of crap to get done to be ready for that! Plus, English is starting again tomorrow night and our special guest is President Ivory!
Our Buddy from the Fire Department (Aurel) hasn’t been easy to find
lately, but we will keep looking for him.
We met with a family that lives in our block this week. The father, Victor,
ran into President Ivory about seven months ago. He had Victor give him a tour of Chisinau and
everything Moldova had to offer. That
was a while ago, but we ran into him in the stairway just a few weeks ago and
have been chatt’n ever since. He allowed
us to swing by the other day to talk a little bit about who we are and why we
are here. It was super quick because they needed to go buy groceries but we
left them with a Family Proclamation and a testimony of how our message could
help his family. He has a 4 year old son
named Nick that loves Lightning McQueen, but the kid only speaks Russian.
We've also been doing less active work and trying to get to know the
members better. We’ve had good church numbers lately and as a mission had 614
people at church. That’s 100 more people
than we had about six months ago - pretty nuts!
I’m doing good! I still dislike the Russian
language and how much it’s used here. Elder
Harper turns 21 tomorrow so we are going to go out to eat. He is fun and we get some good work
Nothing too crazy is going on, but we will have new toys out here once we
get closer to Easter. We’ll have special
video invitations for us to show people as we go around town.
We also went to the library the other day and as we were walking out, Elder
Harper ran into a glass door and almost broke the wooden door frame - Haha! It was a lot funnier in the moment, but I
about laughed just as hard as when Elder Rose fell into the manhole while
wearing his suit and got all wet in sewer water. Incredible!
Love and miss you guys!
