We've had a pretty good week. We found a new investigator named Yevhen. He's pretty darn cool. An older gentleman who's met with missionaries before, but never really actually heard all the lessons. He's the head facilitator at some multi-company rental building.... and EVERYONE there knows him. He only had one concern.... aparantley, apostles don't exist anymore. Prophets, cool. Apostles -- no. That kind of stuff doesn't happen now-a-days. I've never run into that before on my mission. Weird.
As we finished up the restoration, he looked really intently at us and said, "I need some more of those books. Can you bring me another one next week in Ukrainian?" Sir yes sir. His biggest worry about getting his friends to call us is that we'll run out of money on our phone. #REFERRALNATION
We also spent a lot of time with our new converts this week. There were just four baptisms in this city not too long ago, so there's a lot of new convert lessoning to get a movin'. One of my favorites is a young man named Bohdan. He's got some sort of learning disability, but he's HILARIOUS. He explained all of the animal noises he can make for a good 30 minutes while we played chess with him after a lesson. He's the best. Also, he keeps Elder Ferbey awake during school by whispering every few seconds, "Hey... don't sleep. Listen to the bible...."
Gotta love these people.
These week, we also spent a lot of time with Elder Hubbert in our companionship, because Elder Lemons went with Elder Ferbey up to Rivne to do exchanges with the Zone Leaders. Elder Hubbert's super power is baking pie. So... we ate a lot of pie this weekend. We also took some to our new convert, Yeva. She was very excited about it.
And... lots of other fun stuff happened this week, but I've forgotten a lot of it. Things are moving WAY TOO FAST.
Anywho-- I love you all.
I'm so thankful for all of your support and care. I wish you all the best of weeks!
Don't forget to do the big things -- Read your scriptures, say your prayers, and go to church! Your life will be way better for it.
