"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 28th email

Well, this was an interesting week.

So, yeah, our work is to find and help prepare those to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood and become Elders.  High Priest is not our work.  So, this last week, the focus was to meet with all the Bishops/Branch Presidents and EQPs to discuss possible names of people in each Branch/Ward.  So, we traveled to every city in Albania that has missionaries.  We spent one night in Lushjnë and one night in Durrës.  So, yeah.  We've made a schedule of which cities we'll go to each day, and tried to make it in a way so that we can drive smart and not waste a bunch of gas money driving to and from Tirana every day.  So, this week, we start meeting with these people.  Because we were so busy meeting with Branch and Ward Leaders, we only had time to teach 3 people lessons.  So, it will be good teaching again.

1)  Yeah probably.  (Mark question-don't know)

2)  Same as always.  Probably at 6. (Don't know)

3)  Yes, Elder Tanner and I have run every day since I got with him.  When we sleep in Tirana there's a lake we run around, and that is at least a 5K.  And when we stay in Lushnjë we do a lap around the entire city (it's that small).

So, this last week I actually had the opportunity to attend in what was probably my last baptism.   Elder Bilodeau and I found him street contacting.  He was incredible from the start.  Our stake President here said the goal for Lushnjë is to find the future bishopric counselors and Elder's Quorum Presidents.  I am convinced that we found one of them.  He is probably one of the most humble people I ever met.  Right after his baptism, the Branch President came up to me and said, "he needs to get the Melchizedek Priesthood ASAP."  Well, we're on it.  So, that puts it on a cap of 12 baptisms, which I'm happy about.  Not 1000000000000 like Eric, (who served in Africa) but I can at least remember the names of all my converts.  Anyway, I'll try to send pictures of the baptism.

So, yeah, another week of traveling.  Hopefully things will go well this week. 


Have a great week!  Be safe!  Don't do anything stupid!

Ju dua shumë!

Elder Palmer
