 pic is of me Swicegood, White and Odyseuś a member here in Bydgoszcz, we all wore our split ties!

Rodzina i Przyjaciele,

So i have been informed that there is a super funny Kevin James movie out called Here comes the boom? i hear it came out maybe a year ago but is funny. is that true? but anyways what a week. To start off the week it was a little rough prosyliting on the streets this week. alot of people in Poland either are JDUBs or Catholic or hate God and have recently been reading stuff on science. And its been frustrating because, all they want to do is sit there and argue about this and that and how science proves jesus false and everytime i go and history have stated that they traced evidences of things that happened in jersulamen back when jesus was here. but they go uh...i never read that i dont believe its true, so i got ah ha! so read this book to find out if its true and they just leave. I have aruging and hate feeling like i am forcing people, but hey its the work and i love it! Me and Elder Swicegood on thursday since we had nothing planned decided to take the day off and go see a movie...haha just kidding, we did what is called an English Fast. its where you speak polish the entire day. we didnt do the entire day but whenever we were outside we did nothing but polish and it was so fun. it was good for him, he is such a hard working missionary i am way lucky to be seriving with him. but now to the weekend maybe my mom has already posted pics of the weekend from sisters Kageles blog but this weekend was fun. We started off doing a sports saturday. of course only one member shows up the kageles oldest daughter and one investigator. but they came so we played a little touch football, and i taught everyone how to play a really simple touch rugby. it was fun. elder white is the only other athletic one who was playing so it made it interesting. Elder Kotter being the love able spaz that he is was loving rugby so i converted one person to rugby on my mission. But then we had the humbling oppurtunity to serve. Sister Kagele helps out with some program that helps serve people not really sure but she had the missionaries a little while ago help out and they asked for us again. so we went to this house, this family was given this place for free by the state but the state didnt remodel it or anything. it wasnt even live in able. it was bad. so we went and helped out did some dry way took part of the wall out and yeah it was cool. they were so grateful but the father told us that we were like angels. It was cool to see a quick diffrence. But my highlight of saturday had to have been the phone call from Krzysztof in sosnowiec. He was baptized! i wasnt able to attend but Elder Hubbard and Anderson taught him and he was baptized. Krzysztof called me and we talked and he bore his powerful testimony of the atonement and the book of mormon and told me how grateful he is for me. It was so cool. His entire process is the definition of the atonement. the lord blesses the ones who are ready. then sunday in church we had fast sunday. i got up and bore my testimony and i always get nervous speaking, that i told the congregation that "Mój Dziadek jest Prorokiem..." meaning my Dzia Dzia is a prophet, but i wanted to say that "Mój Dziadek jest Polakiem..." meaning that my Diza Dzia is polish...yeah super funny but then i fixed it saying that all of us are prophets over ourselves but as members of the church we should follow the phrophet over all of us and thats Thomas s Monson. Yeah its 21 months later and still make polish mistakes. hard language. hahaha but it was a good laugh.then after sacrament meeting me and swicegood taught the young men and womens class becaus their teacher wasnt there. It was so hard they just sat there and looked at their sorry to all my leaders for being a punk back in the day. but it went well. We met with a man named Marek. he is a funny guy. he sits there and listens but always trys to finish my sentances so i looked at him and was like marek we are much be best friends because your finishing my sentances...he starts laughing and he is really liking what we are teaching. will met with him on tuesday and will extend a date to be baptized. so pray for that. then we did culture night. we went to the kageles house and made polish food and then watched 17 Miracles. Have yall seen it yet?? If not repent and go see it. Its so amazing, i love how during all the hard times they dont pray for it to go away but for a way to go through it. faith is so important. weather it be true or not, faith brings people happyness and a understanding of things. the lord really does love us, watches over us and wont let us fall, he is our foundation. Build on the rock of the lord and be a wise man, i love you all and hope you all are doing good. I pray for you and miss you all. Love yall!

Elder Harris
