How's it going this week? This was a good week for me. I got a new companion and his name is Elder Bliss, he's a great guy and I'm happy to serve with him.
We went down to Bucharest last Wednesday and I got to see a lot of my missionary friends and got to contact together. Most of the people sang while a few of us (who didn't or can't sing) contacted the people who watched or the people passing by. It was a really cool experience because I was pretty much on my own to talk to the people I contacted. I'm at the point where I can speak just enough so that people don't walk away because they think I don't know any Romanian. I had some trouble really trying to say exactly what I wanted to say and understand everything but I am finally starting to communicate with people, which is a great experience. I also got to speak English with people too, which was REALLY nice haha.
That afternoon we met this Irish man who was traveling to Bran and has been traveling without sleep for about 27 hours or something. He was really cool and we talked with him the whole 3 hours home on the train. He said that he had met some missionaries like us in Bulgaria. We set him up to be shown around Bucharest by some Bucharest Elders. He didn't really seem to be too interested in the church, but it was really cool getting to know him and hopefully we planted a seed.
General Conference this week was definitely the best one I have seen because I actually watched and took notes on just about all of it. We haven't been able to see the Sunday night part yet because it played in the middle of the night last night.But I was able to see it all in English which was nice. They had two separate rooms for Romanian and the office for the English. Unfortunately our investigator was too tired from work to attend, but we are hoping to meet with him again soon!
That was pretty much my week. I am continuing to keep trying to work hard and make the best of these two years while I am here. Hope you guys have a great week and I'll talk to you next week!
What is General Conference?
