We had a nice and fun dinner with Roma on Saturday. He's a good cook and a great friend! He made this mushroom stroganoff stuff and chicken, and I realized that I didn't really learn how to cook on my mission.... just forgot what good food tastes like! ha ha
I don't even know what other souvenirs to get here. ha ha. Well, actually I can think of a couple. Maybe Cody and I can get some lunch in JFK terminal too? I'll see Code-man before you all! ha ha ha!
Don't worry, I wear my hat, Mom. I just took it off for the pictures that Roma took as my hat comes down over my eyes almost, and you can't really see my face if I wear it sometimes. We had fun throwing snowballs!
We had a great meeting with another investigator talking about the Plan of Salvation and he asked many great questions, especially about repentance and baptism. He also promised to come to church. Met with less actives and had them share their testimonies with us and talked about what a testimony is and what baptism testified of. They also said they would come to church. We called everyone the night before and reminded them to come. We offered to stop by and help and they all said they could make it there themselves... But no one came to church... I think that is the hardest thing to get people to do in Russia, and espeically here in Petrozavodsk. I don't know what we could be doing differently... We'll continue to try to improve to see more success. It still goes back to what President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, "Just do the best you can do and celebrate the good that you were able to accomplish."
Well, I've got to write a letter to President and want to say a quick "See Ya Soon" to Codes!
I'll write one more time, and see you in a week and a half! Love you all! Can't wait to see you! You're all in my prayers!
