I appologize for being a day late. But there simply wasn't any time yesterday. Since it is a rule to email family every week, I get to do it today.
This last week was fun. The Weher is pretty nice right now for Ukraine. Spring is just right aroun the corner. I can feel it and I can see it in the people here.
We had a great exchange with the Zone Leaders where I was with Elder Western, And Elder Konstantynov with Elder Heybol. It was fun and we got to talk with a lot of cool people. We also got to meet with the Pahilkos and teach English. Elder WEstern and I both lived here in eastern europe before our missions teaching English with he same program, so we were able to work a little better with each other than peherps others might. But we taught the two kids of Brother and Sister Pahilko who was recently released as the Stake President here in Kiev to Serve as a Mission President in the Saint Petersburg Mission.
We had the chance to give service to Katya and Sasha by helping them move furnature aroud since they moved from the smaller to bigger side of the house they were living in.. and guess what? Katya finally finished her Diploma! Hopefully she will have time for more imporant things right now.
We had a Zone Conference today with the Zone Leaders, Sister training Leaders, Assistants, and President and Sister Packer. It was awesome and we talked about having a vision for where and what we want to see in the future our branches and wards becoming. And we also talked a lot about how to make English lass better and how to use the talents of us missionaries and of members and investigators. Elder Konstantynov and I are oing to start up a Knitting class here soon. So watch for pictures!
Besides that we had a pretty average week. But one thing that I have seen more of is that if you want a miracle to happen. You pray in faith and then act. do what you can to make it happen. And then it will happen. This is an If, Then statement. IF you ask in faith with real intent (meaning you intend to act), THEN the miracl will happen. Often times we either don't pray for it and just expect it to happen or ask with our doing anything. In the words of President Packer and is one of our new Mission Satements, "You get what you go for."
