I MISS ELDER PETERSEN!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
well this will be a crazy letter.
well frist off my new comp is elder keown! he is suuper awesome!!!!! we both kind knew we would be comps!!! we are loving it! we are both super young in the mission so we dont know russian good at all! he is 2 trsf ahead of me so im thinking we will both grow soooooooo much these next few months!!!! he is such a hoot!
so we had like no lessons this week. it was really hard. but on the up side i did buy a SICK russian bible and some russian swag!!! we took a trip to some of the temples and it was super awesome! my debt card would not work however…. but we are moving into a new aprt today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhohohosdhfoasidfho i am soo pumped!! cuz its wayyy nice and going to be way fun! we are still in the same area and they are just cloing our old aprt down cuz it has so many issues. (mold)
we have a new investigator we tought on sunday!!! his name is vitali. we just found him on the street durring the new year i think and we just met up! he is way solid and pretty into it. i had no idea. elder petersen would be pumped! we tought him the first and asked if he would like to be baptized and he said “ehh im pretty into this it feels good but i wanna study more” it was siiiick!! and we got him to pray at the end!!! it was a really great lesson! and it was nuts cuz now its just me and keown and we dont know russian so its a trip trying to teach lol! we got back to the aprt after the lesson to eat some din din but when i walked in there was a WAYYYY hard smell! it was like hitting a wall! i RAN to open the window and a alarm started to go off and a robot girls voice came on saying “warning….warning… carbon monoxide” and i started seeing sparkles in my vision and we ran out ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!! we did get the window open and we just stood out in the hall and our neigbor came out and asked what the smell was and we told her “gas” and she was just like eh….okay. and left lol it was funny. but i left the stove top on durring lunch…… and it was on for 2 hours……
i had to call the pres and tell him what happened cuz we had NO idea what to do! he told us to sleep at the other elders aprt and said “well elder lambert… did you have any good lessons today? yes. well then i guess your only punishmen is you have to sleep on the floor tonight lol” it was way funny i wish you knew him! he reminds me SOOO much of papa john! but spanish. so yes i did end up sleeping on the floor cuz the word got out and no elders would let me have a bed… ;( lol so my sleep sucked last night! but we are all safe now!!! some crazy crazy crazy stuff has gone down this week. i cant say it all but my testimony of the lords hand in our lifes is stronger then ever!!!! he is always reaching out to keep us safe.
