Hello y'all hows it going

So this week was great. We have been working really hard and we have been seeing so many miracles because of it. The Lord truely does help us and he cares enough that even when we are having hard times with whatever is going on in life, he will be there and will tell us to keep going and hold on.

This week I had the chance to go back again to zvolen on an exchange and work with Elder Brown again and that was really fun we worked hard all day and bought small wooden slovak flute things to learn how to play together. Even though we are not to gether for now hopefully we get to jam out on them together some time. 

We taught some amazing people and have met with one man everyday except for when we were in zvolen. we are teaching like crazy and this week we had some members with us in our lessons and holy crap i love teaching with people. I mean it is one thing to be the missionary and recieve that revelation of what to say but it is another thing completely to watch and know the interest and concurns of someone and see a member start testifying of the exact thing without preknowledge. It is truely a way to open everyone up to the spirit.

I have taught people outside and in our new building in bratislava and everywhere. Elder Garner works really hard and he is such a great missionary he has kept me busy and we are starting to really understand everything here so it all is going great. 

sorry its so short but we have a lesson soon and i still have to write our mission president.

I hope that you are all wonderful. and that you know that i am so grateful that I know you. I miss you all and hope you have a wonderful week.

Hello everyone, 

This week I got to travel back to the far off land of zvolen and experience one best moments of my life. 

This is ondrej he was baptized this last saturday i had the chance to go back because I got to teach him all last transfer. I had some of the most amazing moments with this man and he is one of the best examples that i have of being a follower of christ. Even when he know he did not understand everything he know that baptism was the right thing and even though he was nervous he went through with it. 

I love this man and i would never give up my relationship with him for anything. 

This week was good i got to get used to my new area old city and let me tell you it is weird being back here. I love it and the members are excited that i am back and everything is great but it is weird to be back and i do miss the small towns. I dont know if i could ever live in New York or any big towns i just dont think it is me. I mean if the Lord tells me to okay great.

anyways Elder garner my new companion is a really hard worker and he helps me stay in line. I love it so much. High light so we got back from the baptism and i was like holy crap that was just way to fast i wish i could have stayed and starší Garner was just like well lets go to work and so we did. then we found a man and his family and exchanged numbers. that night we text us and asked if we could meet on sunday. we met and we are reading the bible in english together and teaching him. then we met with him today and we already have a meeting set up with him tomorrow morning. he is awesome. 

we have been working really hard and we have already seen a lot of blessings from it. it has only been a week.

anyways we have to go soon and i still have to write president McConkie so that is it for this week.

Happy easter to you.

I hope that you have all enjoyed easter and conference and everything i am half way there. We will be watching conference next weekend and i am so excited for what i have heard of it so far. I am sure it will be amazing conference is like chirstmas for missionaries it is great.

This week we didnt get to see our investigator enter the water of baptism but he does want to be baptized still just not quiet yet.

this week we got to see some amazing miracles come to pass from our leaders suggestion a talk that was perfect for someone až do talking with a man that has wanted to investigate our church for a long time. 

Sunday we had an easter meal with a member and some of her friends and we were able to talk about christ with them it was so great after we went tracting and found some great people for our english class. then we contacted a man that we had walked past earlier and he was like i was looking on your website for your church time i would really like to come and see how you work. we talked a little longer and exchanged numbers he is such a cool guy and speaks great english as well. It was a miracle and had we not contacted every house that we had on plan and talked to everyone that we did we may not have been there at the time he was there. It was so cool to see the Lord show us that he cares and really is putting people in our way i love it so much. 

thank you for every thing that you all do for me it is amazing and all of your examples i love you all and miss you

4-13-2015 Zone Leader

So I am writing this letter from Bratislava old town. That is right I am back in Bratislava. My old district leader and i are now here and zone leaders. It is crazy and definatly not what i expected but i felt that I would return some time, and now here i am.

I Lord answers prays but not when you expect them. I know it is for the best though because this is part of the Lords plan so here i go again. 

General Conference was amazing and I loved everything that i understood. we had a wonderful time getting to watch part of it in Zvolen and part in Banska Bystrica and it was awesome. I loved every part of it and on sunday on our train ride to banska our investigator asked us a question and we told him to think about that and listen really closely to conference and guess what he got the answer he needed. I get to go back for his baptism this week end I am so excited.

I hope that you know that i love you all and miss you so much. I also would like you to know that I know God works in mysterious ways some times we dont understand but always his way is the best. I am really excited to get to help these people progress here back in my first city and that i get the chance to help every city i have been able to serve in. 

We saw so many miracles the last week of the transfer. We found that man a week ago that was looking for the church. Also last monday we talked to a women who wants to believe in Christ but has found it hard her whole life. He daughter lives in africa and was converted to christianity there, and she saw how it helped her daughter and she tries to live according to it. we gave her a Book of Mormon and she said that she wants to give it a try but that she will come to church when she is ready. we didnt exchange contact but that is okay with the Lords time and is his way she will come to the truth. 

We figured out general conference even though it took all day long. however we still got to watch it and it was in slovak on saturday and because they still didnt have it in slovak for sunday but they did have it in czech we got to watch that in czech and i understood a lot of it so that is good. 

well i love you all. I miss you. and i know that Lord will protect you.
