Elder Mayans in Romania



Well I’ll tell you a little bit about my week. First off it was crazy over here because of the World Cup! Everyone was watching the games and nothing else mattered at the time. We live right next to a few really big bars so we could hear everyone screaming every time a goal was scored.

Also, this week we were able to make a member visit with the Branch President and his family! They are such an amazing family. The husband is Romanian and the wife is Polish so their common language is English. They have two young boys who speak English, polish, and Romanian but they get confused a lot so they will speak all of them mixed together. Anyways, it was a really good visit. We had a little lesson with them and then had dinner. They are one of the strongest members I know here in Romania so they are really good to talk to about ideas on what we can do to help strengthen the branch. Their two boys are obsessed with me for some reason and whenever they see me they run up and jump on me.. haha they call me "Arctic Monkey"
because they think I’m the lead singer of the band Arctic Monkies. haha They are crazy.

Yesterday we had a really good Sunday. I met out new Mission President for the first time! He was a little intimidating at first but I had a little interview with him and got to know him a little more. He’s really excited to be here in Romanian and he is convinced that Romania will have a huge turning point very soon. He told us that there are going to be a ton of changes so get ready. ha It’s good to have someone that is not afraid of trying something new. We will see how everything turns out. We have a conference down in Brasov this Wednesday so we will know what the changes are then. Brasov is about 6 hours away so that will be a nice long train ride. It leaves at 10 at night and arrives at 4 in the morning.

Well, I love you guys and its good to hear from you again. The Church is true! The Lord really does guide us to the people we need to talk to. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone about the Gospel if you’re prompted to. Love you all! Have a great rest of the week!
