My lovely family and friends!
So this week was great! On Tuesday we traveled to Zilina to meet President McConkie and his family. I love them soooo much! The President is really awesome and gave a great pep talk on how our mission is a mission built on miracles. He also gave a beautiful analogy about building the Kingdom of God. He said that we as missionaries are builders and all builders need to rely on the architect, or Chirst. I also really enjoy his teaching style. It's actually similar to yours, Dad. Then Sister McConkie is just wonderful and super sweet. We had a lovely conversation and she thanked me b/c I was talking w/her children like their cousins would.
So our area is really blossoming from the 1st week when we had nothing. We have 2 on date for baptisms and a bunch of other solid investigators.... And our members are just lovely! The regulars are President Van Dalen and Sister Van Dalen, Sister Burdigova, Lenka (she's a YSA and our first Sunday told us she was excited to finally have girls in the branch), Daniella, and Eric (he is soo cool! He's from Kenya and is studying medicine here).
Sorry this is so short this week....today has been crazy. This transfer is my trainers last and we have so much to do and so little time! Also the weather here is ridiculous. and possibly jacking with the computers. Or maybe they're just really old.
I love you all!
