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 her. 

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!
