Sorry Krissy's mom is behind...
From February 11, 2013
First things first, I love you all. Next would the person who
sent me the pic of the "What cause cancer" slide please tell me what the
rest of it says beneath it (like the causes ha), I cant see it
clearly. But I am pretty sure I know where it was taken ;) You are
adorable for sending it. Thank you.
Next, guess what! Roxana wants to be baptized! She just wants to
learn more first! Which I don't blame her because we haven't finished
the lessons yet. But I am so happy for her. The gospel has changed her
life so much, she is so happy and much more open now than she ever
was. Everyone that meets her just loves her and we are all excited for
We also had 3 investigators at church on Sunday and one potential
(Luiza, Radu and Roxana and Flori as our potential). Plus the elders
had 3-5 investigators each as well! The investigators class was full
and the chapel was more full than I have seen it in a long time--if
ever! What a blessing that was. Things are looking up here in Ploiesti
and all of us have been blessed with wonderful people to teach.
This week we had a little trouble setting up with people so we went
out contacting. We had so much fun and made friends with the workers at
the piata. At this point we have given away 3 Book of Mormons and every time we go they ask for more. When we ask if they are reading,
they tell us all about Joseph Smith and the Gold Plates! They even
finish each others sentences. It is so cool to see how enthusiastic
they are about it. They are amazed that we would volunteer our time to
be here to talk about Christ. So they love when we come and talk about
our purpose. We have invited them all to church, so hopefully some new
investigators with come of this.
We are still happily teaching Andreea Musat and Radu Ene and loving
it. This week we taught about the 10 commandments, which, they had no
idea about ha. It was slightly difficult to explain to them what they
all meant in terms that were simple and that they could understand, but
it was a lot of fun. On Sunday, Radu asked if he could sit by me, he is a
cute kid ha.
Sora Zimmerman and Remsberg came to Ploiesti so they could spend
their last Sunday here where Sora Zimmerman served. It was weird to
know that they are going home. They are in the group behind me. It
made me realize how hard it is going to be to leave here. I love the
people so much. But I know my time is coming. I am just not counting,
so I know it will sneak up on me ha. But all is well. I know I still
have a work here to do. I feel so blessed to be here and to learn of
the people here.
I love the branch here and the work. I feel like I am finally
getting it and really being able to see the potential of others. That
just gives you so much hope! We all have such great potential and
nothing stops us from reaching that potential except for ourselves. But
if we rely on God and put our trust in Him then He will guide us down
the paths that will enable us to reach that potential. What a blessing
it is to know that and to be able to enlighten others of that.
I hope you all know how much I love you all. I am so grateful for
all of your support, especially now. I am excited to see you when the
time comes. But until then, work hard and use the enabling power of the
Atonement to reach your potential :)
Have a great week!
