I am still sick, but today I am feeling a bit better.  We have been so blessed this week by getting two new investigators and one more potential (that should become an investigator this week).  Plus English is starting back up and we are moving forward.  The snow has finally decided to come, which means a little more work for us, or at least a change in our approaches.  We are taking this as a push to get even more lessons and to get things established and set up so that we can use our time most effectively.  We will see how it works.  Things are really going great and I am so happy to be here. 

Anyways, I am hoping that all is going well at home.  I know this is short, but hopefully next week I will have some better stories to tell.  Just remember that if you do the right thing, for the right reason, now, God provides for the rest.  I love you all

So not much happened this week.  I went down to Bucharest on Monday with Sora Jones.  Then we were at the office on Tuesday where I just did random odd jobs to help for transfers.  Then we went to meet her family and the new missionaries at the airport, which was a lot of fun.  The new missionaries seem awesome even if they were really jet lagged ha.  After that we went to President's house and at a wonderful meal.  Sora Lund and Savage showed up so we took the 3 new sisters and headed back to their apartment.  On Wed. I was with Sora Bulloch and we were just in love as usual.  I said some goodbyes and then headed off to Ploiesti with Sora Komar.  She woke up sick the next day, so we have basically spent the rest of the week in the apartment.  We have had a great time to get to know each other.  I am so excited to be able to serve with her and to work hard for the next 9 weeks.  Life is going great and I just love it in Ploiesti.  I feel like they are my family.  We got people asking us to come over this week, which was a huge blessing.  Everything just works out when we do our best and put the rest in God's hands.  Anyways, sorry this is short, I love you all.  Have a great week!

I don't have much time this week.  But Sanda got confirmed on Sunday by Fratele Chirila.  It was amazing.  She is just so excited and so happy.  We are still working with Iulia and were able to meet with her on Saturday.  I did a lot of the teaching (Sora Jones helped with keeping the kids under control ha) and just felt like I wasn't connecting with her very well.  I feel like after a while I stopped teaching and Spirit started.  It ended a lot better than it started which I was grateful for.  Other than that things are going well.  I will probably be finishing out my mission here in Ploiesti because next transfer I will be here with Sora Komar.  Then I only have 3 weeks after that.  I am nervous and dont really want to leave.  But I know that all will go well I just need to keep focused now on what is most important.  Everything else will just fall into place :)  I love the people here and I couldn't think of a better place to end my full time missionary experience.  I have been so blessed by being here and I cant wait to see what this transfer brings. 

Love you all!

La Multi Ani again!  I can't believe that it is a new year.  We have had a really exciting week.  Sanda got baptized and was just glowing on Sunday as she made that covenant with God.  It was so awesome to see.  It was by far the best experience to see since I have been out.  What a blessing to be a part of, even if it was just a small part.  She has been baptized not because of us, but because the members did their job and the Predescu's invited her to church and did their part. The other branch members have just welcomed her with open arms.  I love the people here.  They are amazing.  That was most definitely the highlight of the week.  We had other lessons and English which was great as well.  It was awesome.  We got more bungs (cancellations) than in any other week this transfer, but nothing could get us down.  We were so excited for Sanda that it just lifted our spirits. 

In other news, I found out I will now be coming home on the 20th of March due to changes in the time missionaries are in the MTC (Going from 9 weeks to 6 weeks).  So I will be home a bit earlier.  I am nervous, but I just want to push it out until the end.  I love it here and it is sad that my time is being cut short, but I know it was inspired to do this.  So I am trusting in that.  God knows better than I do. 

Well, I love you all
