Happy Mother's Day (A Week Early!)


Hey everyone! Another week is gone, it's seriously crazy! This week has been full of all kinds of interesting and awesome experiences! People on the street have been a little crazy this week, and we've had quite a week. 

We're still running into former investigators from a few years ago on the streets, and we meet people pretty much every day that have had some sort of contact with the missionaries in the past. A lot of them attended our English group a couple of years ago, or just stopped and talked with them for a few minutes! Yesterday we were out contacting on the streets, and we took a really random path down a street we don't usually walk on, and out of nowhere this lady came up from behind us and started talking to us in English. We found out she had met with the missionaries three years ago, but both of them got transferred out of Stavropol, and she just didn't know who the new missionaries here were. She invited us over to her house that was about 2 minutes away and we were able to teach her the restoration. She seems super sincere about everything, and said she would pray about it! It's awesome to see the Lord preparing people for us every day, we just need to be in the right place at the right time! 

This email will be a bit shorter than usual, we just had a pretty long conversation about our church while we were sitting here emailing at the internet club, and he should be coming to church next Sunday! We were able to Skype home yesterday, and it was seriously the coolest thing ever! I'm so grateful for my family and the knowledge that I have that this life is not the end. My family is everything to me, I love them dearly, and all I want for the people here in Russia is to have the same thing with their families! That's really all I have time for, but I love you all, and pray for you! It's great hearing from you, and I hope all is well with everyone!

Until next time,
