Well now that that is finished let me go on about the rest of our week. We did a lot of contacting while walking around to other apointments and to answer your question grandpa we do surveys to stop people than afterwards we share a short message with them and give them a pamphlet and maybe a book of mormon if they are intrested (this by the way is how we got Mapko (Marko) and one other investagator (He?? (Neli)) who I will talk about later.) This is what we do most of the time while contacting and I can almost do it on my own as long as they don't ask questions than I am doomed. Luckly I have my compainion with me who can speak the language so he can take care of the complicated things. We want to do Letter of Refferal tracking (were you get a letter by a member, make many copies, drop it off at a block, come back a couple days or weeks later and use the letter to introduce your self,) but we haven't been able to set up an appointment with a member to write one. Secondly we are working hard on getting permision from the city to street board hopefully we are allowed to. Now on to H??? (Neli) we met her when we had finished tracking on an unresponsive block and had a very long meeting with a couple that only wanted to talk with us. They were on the third floor so when we were done we didn't want to finish the block but I told my compainion we needed to and he agreed so we did. The rest of the block wasn't fruitfull but if we hadn't finished ???? wouldn't have been out side of the door and we wouldn't have been able to meet her. We gave her a book of mormon and set up a meeting. At the meeting she told us that she had been having a very hard time in her life lately but whenever she read from the book of mormon she felt better. In the meeting I bore my testimony (with out knowing the previous I usally get an update from my companion after the meetings) in which I told her how reading the book of mormon will make you happier and you life easier because it has mine. We then had her pray after the meeting and she said that that was the first time she had prayed infront of somebody in her intire life and that she was going to right it down in her journal it was so important. We also have one other set of Investagators I already told you about (??? ? ??????? (gosh and Haydiyalka)) they are intrested in getting closer to christ so we gave them the book of mormon in our first meeting and since then every time we have walked up to there house they have been gone. So we left them a note this last time saying we will come back tuesday at 7:30 but if they don't want to meet they need to call us.
Well that was my week other than I got to listen to genral confrense in english this week and there were some good talks and I loved Elder Uchtdorf's joke on "what does it have to do with planes." Sorry about the pictures I will try to pick it up but it is hard to get them all in the computer but I figured out how to pick and chose them now and know which ones they our so that shouldn't be that much of a hassle any more. After that long spiel I am kind of written out and all I have left to say is the language is coming ( I was on fire this week with it! Yes!!!!) Kenzie, Katie get along and have fun at Sadies. Don't worry about me and money I am not going to go out of the way but if you want a christmas present I need the previously mentioned information. I think the money thing is a great Idea for a present (but packages our very welcome too just make it a group packege to save money. Oh and don't insure it above 20 dollars and just lable it school supplies or somthing because if you don't I have to go through costums to get it and it will cost me a ton and I may not get it.) Something intresting about bulgaria: one Haloween is brand new here and they don't know how to celibrate it, two on New Years they do have fire works but they don't shot them in the sky they have wars with them. The weather is chilli here right now but not two bad espiclly after it rained for two weeks strait. I am in the middle of the country and apparntly it doesn't get that cold here in the winter. Tell me about your selfs.
