"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 April 14th email

Hey what's up?  Well, yeah, yesterday I was sustained to be the 1st Counselor to the Branch President in Lushnjë.  I thought I made it far enough to avoid having to be in a branch presidency. But, it's only for a month.

Zone training went well. The missionaries really seemed to enjoy it.  We worked hard on it.  I think there will be one more mission conference, (before he comes home) and that will be it.

The work has been a little slow, especially since we had to give them (additional companionship) some of our work, but we didn't have much to give.  
No, I don't teach lessons at church, at least now right now....

Hardest part of driving stick?  Just consistently stalling out before figuring it out.  It will take a while. I wonder if I can still drive it....(Mom is going to teach Jake to drive the Corolla)

1)  We start with Sacrament.  Lushnjë here is only 2 hours right now for the moment.  No Sunday School.

2)  No.  Americans really don't come to Albania for vacation.

3)  Heck no!  I don't want to.  I want to say I did missionary work the old fashion way!  (Don't know.  This is a question from his dad and cannot get clarification at this point.)

So, yeah, I'm 1st Counselor now.  We'll see how that goes.  Also, our investigator, came to church yesterday and really seemed to enjoy it!  He's progressing very well!  He's on a baptismal date for April 26th and we're really excited for him! Otherwise, we have been doing a ton of finding.  A lot of traveling to outer villages for retention work.  So, we've been busy.

With the baptismal font, we have sort of a stair case that we climb in and out of it.  I'll send a picture sometime.

Andrea, hope you're having fun.

Jake, don't get too bored.

Eric. (?)

Alright, have a great week!  be safe!  Don't do anything stupid!

Ju dua shumë!
