April 14,2014

Hey so this week will be kinda short because I have to send some pictures home to my family, but here we go.
I am now here in Nitra. at first it was really weird. The appartment is a good one but it only has carpet under the coffee table in our living room, but we do what we can to keep it down for the neighbors, you know me blasting mo tab. just kidding but we do have a huge sound system that we have music playing on some times, not loud though.
Anyways we had a good first few days. We found a new potential each day for the first three. One is named miroslav and he is way cool. He believes that we all have Godly potential, which we do. The next lesson with him is plan spasy and I am so excited, it will be a great lesson.
My new companion is Elder Ringger, he is a great guy and has been out only 3 transfers more then me. He is from utah but has lived in New York and seattle. He is taller then me and well you will see in the pictures.
Anyways, we got to watch conference this last week and I watched the priesthood session and half saturday afternoon in english because no one can. We meet in a little apartment space where we only have two rooms and a bathroom, but we are hopping to fill it up so much this transfer that we have to get a bigger place to fit all the new members. We had an investigator come to the sustaining part of conference then he had to go so we are going to watch the talks about family with him some time. He is great. Well I am doing great here hope all is well there.
s laskou,

April 7, 2914

Yep thats right I am in Nitra now and ready for a great transfer.
From what I have seen of this town it is beautiful and one that is great and ready. I have now moved from the smallest "worst" apartment to the largest "Best" in slovakia for missionaries. I only say that because that is what every missionary has said. I really liked my last apartment, even though it was small and was a pain to keep clean, it was where I was trained and it really seemed like home to me. I havent seen this new one yet but here is what I know it is one of the only, if not the only, apartments that has AC in the hot humid summers of slovakia. The Lord has blessed me in my time of need :) Because the summer months are right around the corner.
I don't know much about here yet but I do know that there are some amazing people that are ready to hear the gosple. My companion Elder Ringer is a great elder and is the District leader. This will be quiet the fun tranfer.
For those who are wondering, I havent seen confrence yet we will be watching it this next weekend over the internet while the ward members watch the slovak translated version. I really hope that we get to watch all the sessions. It will probably  be at the church house, which is another small apartment sized place that hopefully by the end of this transfer will have to be changed to a bigger place because there is to many members for that small place.
well I better go. I hope to know how you are doing and that you are enjoying the Lords hand in your life because he is there and he will never leave you.
Remember when life gets to hard to stand, kneel, you will be closer to heaven anyways.

s laskou,
