"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."

2014 Jan 27th email

Wait, seriously???  No school and no exams?  Jake, as a junior, you are incredibly lucky.  Andrea, that's a good start to your exam life.  Man, I had to do them every year for 5 years......(We had no school last week.  Started with Martin Luther King Jr. Day and then 4 snow days.  It was exam week and by Thursday the county decided it would be best to just cancel exams......)

The branch is getting better!
Yes, we do still teach English, but this week will likely be the last week.

Yeah, Colin (a friend serving a mission) told me already when he goes home.  I think he was shocked at how early I will be leaving compared to when I began.  Not my fault....

1)  Honestly, nothing really in food.  In dialect, they use a couple different words than in other cities, but that's about it.  (Difference between Tirana and Lushnje)

2)  Branch work's good.  What happens after church Sundays is that we do the online stuff for tithing and expenses, and then we wait for President Spaulding to be done with interviews, then he pretty much tells us what work to do during the week.

3)  We actually just played on Saturday with members!  But they only know how to play soccer, so it was rough. (for Scott who prefers basketball)  No, only Elbasan and Durres church buildings are normal church buildings, the other buildings are for rent.

Andrea clearly has the coolest 14 year old trip of anyone by far, just saying.....(family tradition)

Anyway, Elder Foster and I had another good week lesson-wise.  From what I learned being a Zone Leader in the South, if you don't have at least 20 lesson a week, you're not working hard enough.  The work in our zone is just going so well right now, we're just excited to be the zone leaders over it, and it's also fun when we present our work to President Ford each month.  It's been fun.  (What a great thing to hear from a missionary!)

Well, Christmas was over a month ago, why is time flying?  I don't feel like I've been a missionary for a year and a half at all.  Maybe 6 months, but that's about it.  That's ok, there's still tons do do, we got that stake to get ready.

Anyway, have a great week this week!  Love you lots!  Be safe!  Don't do anything stupid!

Ju dua shumë!

Elder Palmer
