We met the new mission president and his wife and they are amazing! I already love them so much and I'm excited to be working with them. He invited us to do 3 things at the end. The last commitment was about staying with our companion and praying for them in every prayer. Every prayer. As missionaries we pray a lot: before each of our studies, before we leave the apartment, etc. At first it was a little awkward and just kinda funny to pray specifically for each other in each of our prayers. As the week went on we got more creative in our 'asking blessings' for each other. Somehow it just makes you more committed to each other. I don't know how to explain. But its fun.
Also, the new mission president may or may not have bribed us all with chocolate...and it may or may not have worked...haha just kidding. But he really did bring this HUGE Toblerone candy bar. So good.
I forgot to mention last week but when Ramadan started all our phones got a mass text wishing us a happy Ramadan. We thought it was pretty cool. We don't even send out texts in Utah for General Conference. There are a decent amount of food places that close down during Ramadan. We also started cookie finding (handing out cookies with pass along cards) before we remembered that it might be a bad idea...luckily the one person we gave them to happened to be Christian.
4TH OF JULY!! Happy Birthay America! We definitely had a 4th of July party and it was super! We had a lot of members as well as investigators come AND some real live Americans that are here in Kosovo on interships and such. Imagine that! So legit.
One of our investigators called us this week simply to tell us that she had done her reading and really liked it! It was awesome. Our other investigator got the book of Mormon just over a week ago and she's already in Alma and loving it. It just makes me so happy! Seriously. It makes me happy that they are happy and love something that I love so much. If that makes sense. Basically we are just all happy and love the Book of Mormon together. Kaq.
I love being a missionary!
