The box.

This one time we found a box. It was a big box. We took it home with us. We love our box.

You see, we meet for church above a store called Neptun, it sells refrigerators and washers and all kinds of electronics. We kept meaning to grab one of their big refrigerator boxes and finally the opportune moment came this week. We have great plans to make a street contacting display. I'm sure it will attract attention...just carrying it back to our apartment got quite a bit of attention. It be fool proof!
Hana got baptized this week! If you have read any previous weeks you will know her  as Ana. It was a pretty awkward moment for us when she went in to get her baptismal interview and Elder Morava asked her name and she corrected his "Ana" with "Hana". Awkward. 
The baptism itself was quite an adventure. We went to Durres because they have an actual font with warm water (since she is a little older and was concerned). Elder Foster drew us this map (I wish I had a picture to show you...) It actually worked pretty well but one of the members we brought with us had called someone else and thought she knew where we were going. Anyways we ended up stranded on the side of the highway on the road to Tirana. Luckily the Branch President came a rescued us. An hour late we made it and it was a beautiful service. She had the biggest smile on her face coming out of the font. Then we somehow we made it home. (Hana stayed to visit family). It was a great day.
Speaking of getting lost...we also got lost going to Cerëm. Turns out there are 7. Luckily it was a warm day. Luckily we had a lot of lessons planned in Zhamë and EVERYONE got to hear our story of getting lost. Its not 'sister stereotypes'... I think its just our personal talent. Good thing we are usually in Lushnje which is so small its almost impossible to get lost.
We also had Motra Training this week. It was fun to be together with all the sisters. I can't believe we have 23 sisters in our mission!! When I first got here our group almost doubled the number to 14. Its exciting!
I love getting e-mails from my friends that are serving missions all over the world. There are miracles happening all over the world...the Lord truly is hastening his work. I see it happening here. Next week we have our STAKE conference. Wow. I love it. 
I can't believe it is March.
