2014 Feb 10 email

Holy geez, Dave's a dad.  (Cousin)  definitely not mature enough to be a dad yet.....  Just kidding, that's awesome!  So, uncle-in-law?

I don't think there's a college in Lushnjë, it's so small I don't think it could hold enough people.  I think most Albanians try to go to Tirana for college, it's the capital and there's more job opportunities there.

1)  My cardio has been going well, at least with what i can, I try to do as many jumping jacks and the occasional jump rope.  I've even tried running in place a few times, whatever I can do.  Yeah, I can definitely run a lot more than I used to, at the end though was when I really started to get tired out

2)  No, no one can afford to do it.  (Don't know)

3) I believe so!  (Again, don't know. Sorry)

Ok, well this last week something pretty cool happened.  So, back in October when i was in Elbasan I was teaching this family and eventually baptized the mom.  Well, her son turned 8 this week, so I had the opportunity to go back and baptize him as well!  It was awesome being back in Elbasan, definitely the best city in the mission.  I'll send a picture.  Also, Elder Foster was able to go to Durrës and baptize someone he taught when he was there as well.

So, yeah, other than those two kids, a lot of our work has pretty much disappeared.  It's been interesting.  It's been tough.  

Also, dad, I think I now understand everything you had to do as Bishop.  Yesterday the Lushnjë Branch had the audit, and that was miserable!  Add Clerk to a calling I will not wish for.  It took about 3 hours.....  Everything went fine, just a lot of sitting.  Otherwise, it was a good week.  

Jake, where are you?  (No email sent)

Eric, you too? (No internet now)

Andrea, nice on the basketball!

Well, that's about it.  Have a great week!  Be safe!  Don't do anything stupid!

Ju dua shumë!

Elder Palmer
