Good week . . . cooled down a bit, but still is pretty warm.
Our Branch President has his niece staying with him and last Monday she decided to get baptized before she goes back to her parent’s house near Constanta! She didn’t really give the sisters too much time to work with, but they taught her everything and talked with president to make sure it was cool to get baptized within one week’s time. On Friday, I had to give her a baptismal interview (weird) and she was baptized by the Branch President on Saturday. It was cool to see back to back baptisms the last two weeks and the first time I have seen that on my mission. The branch is excited to have new people and to participate in baptisms. Her name is Andreea Gorgiana. I dont have any pictures unfortunately, but it was cool.
We've been doing our thing and teaching who we can. President called yesterday though and had some big news for us. Brasov is a 6 missionary district (4 sisters & 2 elders) but he is going to split me and Elder Swafford as of this Friday. We will both be receiving new comps and remain here in Brasov. Elder Brown is coming to me (not a joke - we also have two Sister Armstrongs together in Constanta) and Elder Erickson is coming to be with Swafford. Nothing big happened, just a few changes in the mission and it made sense to make this change. Kinda bummed I was only with Swafford for a month but we will live together at least for the next two weeks. My new guy is fresh in the mission. He has been here four weeks so I will train him until I’m done in September. President is just making sure I stay obedient - haha!
I’m doing good, having fun, learning new things and trying not to think about you guys too much. Also, making great food!
Happy Birthday to our girl Pippa! Wish I could be there.
Boring emails but I’ll get this figured out by next week.
