So, yeah, we only watched the morning sessions in conference. All the Tirana missionaries went and watched it at President's. It was really good. My favorite of the ones I saw was Elder Perry's. 10 commandments, not 4. Yeah, this was a very 'wood-giving' conference I think. Sorry, 'giving wood' means pretty much laying down the law to those who have breaking it.
Food? We eat at like 3 different places every week. We eat at this Kosovar grill like 3 times each week, got good Kosovo burgers, it's really good. Plus their chicken wings are incredible.
So, Tirana was weird because it's so big. I spent my first 6 months in small towns, so I wasn't ready for the big city. But, I have my area figured out now, so I can get around without having Elder Foster telling me everything.
No, I haven't driven yet, and I won't unless I go Zone Leader or AP. Personally, I like walking, I've trimmed down a bit because of walking. By the way, we here in 2nd Branch run every other morning, so we are exercising.
Jake, be safe.
Andrea, tell me about the WiiU.
1) (Did you d you survive the "Day of Liars"?) Yes
2) (You mentioned the Winders in your last email. That name is a blast from the past. Ask them if they are any relation to the famous Winder Dairy from Utah? Waaaaaaaaay back in the ancient days, when their used to be milkmen, we used to get milk and other products from Winder dairy delivered to a milk box that used to sit outside our back door. (Snap, I just looked them up on the web and they're still in business and still do home delivery!))
No, but I'll ask them.
No, but I'll ask them.
3) (Remind me how conference work's over there. Do they provide an Albanian translation? If so, did you watch the Saturday sessions on Sunday? And Sunday's sessions next week? Yeah, like I said, we just watch morning sessions because that's all we can watch without breaking the rules. We can watch or listen to the rest when we have free time.) Yeah, like I said, we just watch morning sessions because that's all we can watch without breaking the rules. We can watch or listen to the rest when we have free time.
Topeka's closed? What the crap...(traditional site of dinner after Priesthood session of conference)
Yeah, go Louisville! (College basketball)
Well, sounds like you'll have a fun summer going on. Wow, summer's coming (punches hole in wall). I'm gonna go on a limb that I'll spend my summer in Tirana, I've moved around a lot already.
Alright, well I don't know anything special that's going on this week, other than that we're going to Shkoder tomorrow with the ZL's to do zone training with the Elders up there in Shkoder and Montenegro. That means I will have seen every city in Albania that has missionaries except for Vlore. So, I gotta do a transfer in Shkoder (district meetings in Montenegro) and be a Mountain Zone Leader (go to Kosov twice a transfer) so I can go to every country on my mission.
Anyway, have a good week this week, and take care!
