Hello guys, May 18th, 2015
This week was pretty good! We found a couple more new investigators and Vlad is progressing and we are developing good friendships with all of the people here in the area. For p day we went to Greece and played ultimate Frisbee but it got way to hot and humid to do that for long. But for the most part this week was a little cooler than last. We found the tennis girl from the clothing closet that we were trying to find. She walked into Jims store while we were teaching him and we were able to give her a Book of Mormon and to talk with her a little bit. The bad news is she seems interested and wants to learn more but she just graduated and is moving back to Long Island next week. So we'll have to send those missionaries to teach her. We were never able to set up good times to teach her because she was so busy.
The good news for the week is Vlad. He is the one from Ukraine and he is almost done with the Book of Mormon after a Week! He has come to church twice, and we are going to the sites with him tomorrow. So that will be really fun. We were able to Skype with one of Bro. Britton’s friends who just got back from the Ukraine so he could understand a little more what we are talking about. It should turn out good.
We did lots of service this week for the library doing weeding, we served food at the Baptist church with the Methodist members, we worked at the clothing closet at the Episcopal church, etc.. The Methodist pastor really loves us and she is going to have is over for dinner one night and we are going to teach all of the youth in her church about our religion this week. And one of the families we are teaching are members of her congregation and she's fine with us teaching them.
Friday, one of the members graduated and we had a huge surprise party at the church for her. Pretty much the whole ward came plus some. We want to the prison again and he gets out in 40 days so he's almost done. We had zone meeting in Batavia this week and that was fun! And this up coming week we have interviews with president. That's pretty much the week for me
This is Wegmans from our apartment. You can barely see it through the
trees but there is a trail and a bridge over the river right to it.
