This place was made for me :) Well the MTC did nothing for my Russian…..LOL! Church was SOOO crazy! I have no idea what’s going on. I’m like a little boy here! But, I guess while some guy was bearing his testimony, he said he could read minds, and it was a gift given to him from God…haha! Everything you thought would be to weird for life IS in Ukraine. No joke. The missionaries have to crack down cuz they give lessons on our heavenly mother! ha-ha, it’s crazy. People will pray like, “dear father and mother in heaven…” haha weird. We get trashed on all the time for being from the states! They say “americans fwords” alllll the time! We went contacting for the first time…..wow! Haha, so insane! This is what I said my first time..”HELLO!” He didn’t even look at me and just kept walkin, ha-ha! Well that went on for about 15 minutes, then one stoped! ”HELLO!” “What do you want?” “Good morning”….
“Where are you from?” “We are missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ and we have a message about happiness!”….end of contacting, LOL!! It’s alot of fun!! but I am much better now! I got some peoples numbers and what not! It’s crazy.
So, the plane!! I gave away a Book of Mormon to a Russian lady! She was super old and didn’t like us much, but she had a Bible, and I talked to her about some good verses in John, and she said she would try and read the Book of Mormon, LOL. The next Book of Mormon I gave out was to a HARD CORE PIMP KILLER! No kidding! I could write a whole letter about him! He told us his whole life….from his baby being shot to death, to him killing people for money, to looking for hookers, to wanting to change his ways, to his first kill as a 16 year old!! Ahhhh! Soooo nuts you guys!! He said he will buy us dinner when we land cus he really liked us, so we got his number and everything! We said we don’t know if we can that night but we will give you a call to meet up!! We asked if we could help him with anything after we got off the plane (cuz he REALLY opened up to us) and he said he needed some money picked up, and he would give us 10,000 eur for the job! SO NUTS…..but yeah I could go into so much detail about that guy! ha-ha
Right now we don’t have any investigators or anything good like that! We do have a lesson with some members tonight, so that should be fun! I have to take the lead on teaching them about the Book of Mormon. It’s gonna be nuts. I hate Russian! LOL! But I have 110% faith I’ll get it sometime!!! Just pray for me kkk??? Hmmm….What else???? Our room is off the hook!!!! Everything is all Asian, and we have a deck that overlooks the city! We are on the top floor, so its TIGHT to read scriptures on the roof and watch the misty city! :D All the milk is in bags here…it’s weird… The toilet paper will rip you up!! It’s party streamer!! Like no joke! Go to the store and buy some party streamers and that’s what we get! LOL!! Lots and lots of sour cream! The food is really really good!!! Just what I thought it would be!
