Tranfere calls are in and I am extatic. (keep reading all the way to the bottom.)

Hello every one and how are you doing? Well as I said Transfere calls came in and I will tell you latter were I am going so you will have to wait and see.

Monday:
For Monday we basicly just watched movies again because the other two elders were still sick. After P-day was over we had a lesso with Angelina. Some cool things from that meeting and the baptism is first; when she got out of the water she was crying and we found out it was from joy in this meeting. We asked her how she felt afterwards and she said she felt like her past life had been washed away and also the little devil that used to be on her shoulder (figurtive, you know like the angle on one a devil on the other tempting you to do stuff) was gone and it wasn't tempting her anymore. That was really cool. After this we began to teach her how to conduct music because she recived the calling to conduct the music during sacrament meeting and she knows nothing of music. So that was basicly the entire night and the other elders came to help as well and she can finally wave her arm around in a semblence of the time signitures. Anyway it was fun and afterwards we went up to bed.

Tuesday:
After studies we had a meeting with ILina (I captilized the L on purpose so you would know it was an L.) She is the english student that valintina had fellowshiped. We met at her house and lets just say she isn't living to great right now. She is living in this hotel wich is basicly either 8 X 14 or 10 X 18 cement room with a seprate bathroom. Despite this she had decrated the place really nice and it looked really good for what she had to work with. The meeting went by great and after it we had a meeting with Vera (real name vyara which is faith in bulgarian.) She is a 14 year old english student that has been coming to church for about 2 months strait but we couldn't teach her because she is too young and we need parent permision. We met with her this time to see if she does have parent permission to be taught or do anything and to teach her if she does. Well she doesn't have parent permission to be taught but she always gets permission before coming to church. So we schedualed a meeting with her and her family for friday. Oh and mom you would like this she has 5 sisters and no brothers and she is number five or the second youngest. After meeting with her we took care of some finacial stuff that took the rest of the night and then had cleaning. Vera came with two of her friends that we latter found out were her sisters (all of the friends that she has been bringing to english and activities have been her sisters.) Angelina also came to help out. Valintina wasn't too happy because she takes cleaning as her own personal job eventhough her calling is just to make sure it is done. With all there help we got a lot done and accomplished. After cleanning we watch the testaments with all the kids and then parted ways and went to bed.

Wendsday:
After our morning studies we had district meeting. District meeting was fund and after it we went to Budepeshta which is a really good restruant for the last time together. After eating we had a language our and then called some people. After this we tried to find someone but is was a false addres and we couldn't find her. We then went to meet with the Lazarovie family but they were sick and we didn't get to meet that long but they did say if they were better on sunday they would come to church. After them we had to catch a bus to sofia because Elder Corless needs to pick up his lichna carta (bulgarian social security card.) We got into sofia around eight a clock and went to the office elders apartment and crashed for the night.

Thursday:
After our morning studies (boy that is getting repetitive) we went to the mission home to drop off our stuff and then got stuck there because Elder Corless' mother had sent him a refrall and because of some record mix ups and other stuff it took him and the senior office couple a couple of hours to find were the refferal was and which missionaries were the closest. I spent my time helping the AP's (Assitants to President) take apart a chair during this time. After this we went to pick up the lichna carta to find out that they had changed there process and we now needed our passport to get the lichna carta instead of our old one. So we went to a nearby sweet shop to get something to eat. It was really good. and then went to the mission home and picked up a bunch of stuff that we needed back in Pleven. We then caught a 1:30 bus back to Pleven and got back just in time for english. English was fun and we taught them some english idoms. After english we Elder Rowden and I took care of some tasks that needed to be done and then it was time to go to bed.

Friday:
First thing we did was go to slaviyanavo to visit a Nickolie and Iveta. It was fun and we shared a spiritual thought with them about tithing. They also made us beans again, I don't know what they do but those beans are delicious. Also I learned how to knit from Iveta. Yea now I can knit! Anyways after meeting with them we came back and met with Ilina againd and she commited to pray and start a regular reading scheadule for the book of mormon. After meeting with her we had our meeting with Vera's family. Vera picked us up at a bus station near her house and then took us to all of her friends that she wanted us to meet. She was really excited to have us over and she told us to invite her family to church but to not mention it was her idea. We eventually got to her house and met her entire family. They were a lot of people and every one was there but one of her sisters who was married and in greece. The family was a lot of fun and we got along great. They also had a dog whom had had puppies on sunday and they had named one Ewell and David and we got to hold our conterpart puppies. The night ended really cool though. They grow herbs and sale them which is the only thing that gives them enough money to support there entire family. So they have there own schedual and we were trying to have the father agree to come to church. We shared a spiritual thought about how the loard rested on the seventh day after the creation. A little while later the father said that he had been thinking about that and that if the Lord rested on the seventh day then he would too and that they would all be coming to church. That was so amazing and awsome. Vera was supper happy too. That was the coolest thing that happened the other cool thing was that they had slaughtered a pig awhile ago and we got to eat off of it. After the meeting with them we had to go back home. He had all of his daughters walk us to the bus stop and then we got home and went to bed.

Saturday:
Saturday was fun. We had english first thing and we basicly told them were we were going and then went over some more idoms for the day. After english we cleaned the library closet and then had lunch. After lunch we made some calls and then went street boarding with the other elders. Something really cool Angelina came to help as well which was amazing and really fun. While street boarding almost everysingle person I ran into spoke english perfectly. It was really weird but pretty cool anyways. After street boarding we came back home and went to bed.

Sunday:
Okay now this is really cool. When we went down stairs to open the church for sacrament meeting the Lazarovie family was there. It was really cool because they had come but also kind of awkwared because we had to set up church while they were there. Well all was fine we got church set up just like normal. Sad thing though Vera came and said that her family couldn't come because something came up but that here dad promised to come next week. So I guess that would be fine but it would have been cool to see the numbers double because they would be there. Church went just fine despite it being fast sunday and it was only us missionaries that bore testimonies but that is normal and fine. After church we took care of some tasks, had dinner, and then went and met the Nickolovie family. They talking on skype with their daughter in greece so we got to see her and get her information as well so that was good. I really like that family and I am said they are in such a bad situation. After meeting with them we went home to bed.

Today:
Today we are watching a little of confrence while putting some CD's together with our pictures and then we are going shopping for a bit and then watching some movies.

Okay now for the big annoucement. I am going to serve for the next two months with Elder Morgan in a city that you will all reconize. The city of two names and one of the best places on earth.
