It's getting Warmer

No Cześć Wam!

Well, this week was weird, we had to move apartments on Thursday. I can still go to the other apartment and grab mail, but I have two companions now.  Elder Bokinksy has been having problems with his knee so he is now in the Office so he can rest it. Which really sucks because he is one of my favorite missionaries out here.  I have spent the past 6 or so months around him. We grew really close and have been become really good friends. Reminds me a lot of Derrick, so love the kid.  So that was a weird day. But something amazing happened this week, our old Baptismal date Franciszek, who is having problems with tithing finally set up with us so we could talk. At first he says that he isn't ready to change or maybe just dosn't want to anymore.  I didn't know what to do, so I sat there quite. Me and Elder Dodge where silent and then we started asking questions, inspired questions. And we felt we should read Ether 12:6-22 and talk about faith, miracles, and trials and it all made sense to him. He started thinking...he even said I want to know this is true.  I am so grateful for the spirit because without it, he would have been gone. We had two great lessons with Robert. ( Cześć Robert! Mam najdzieję że wszystko jest w porządku w Czechach. ) He is doing good. He went to the Czech Republic for vacation. Everything here in Poland is good, finally getting warmer. Not wearing a suit coat today! so that's cool. And you all asked about Conference.  I was not able to view any of it I am waiting for the Liahona to come out. I heard it was great! Everyone send me something they liked about it so i can be looking for it when the Liahona comes out next month! I read this in my personal study this week in the Book of Mormon and even if you aren't Mormon it has a good message its Alma 26:28-30 

 28 And now behold, we have come, and been forth amongst them; and we have been patient in our sufferings, and we have suffered every privation; yea, we have traveled from house to house, relying upon the mercies of the world—not upon the mercies of the world alone but upon the mercies of God.
 29 And we have entered into their houses and taught them, and we have taught them in their streets; yea, and we have taught them upon their hills; and we have also entered into their temples and their asynagogues and taught them; and we have been cast out, and mocked, and spit upon, and smote upon our cheeks; and we have been bstoned, and taken and bound with cstrong cords, and cast into prison; and through the power and wisdom of God we have been delivered again.
 30 And we have suffered all manner of afflictions, and all this, that perhaps we might be the means of saving some soul; and we supposed that our ajoy would be full if perhaps we could be the means of saving some.
So pretty much it's a really good missionary verse of course like 30 is, but honestly, we are giving hard times in our life for a reason. Weather you believe in God or not, he has stuff in store for you. He wants you to learn and grow and accomplish stuff. He puts hard things in your way just so you can grow. If your having a hard time and thinking nothing is going right here is a quote from President Uchtdorf "When necessary the Lord will even carry you over obstacles...." I love you all thanks for the support! hope your all having fun, you all alraedy know i am. Keep the updates coming and we will talk to you next week!
