Good morning everyone!
We had a pretty uneventful week in Celje, but it was (as always) a good one.
Monday was a very relaxed p-day, and Elder Petersen and I went to the mall to get a few things we needed for the apartment. It was nice to not really have anything to do and just wander around the mall for a bit.
On Tuesday we did a lot of tracting and contacting during the day, and then had a really great lesson in the evening with one of our investigators. We talked with her about the Book of Mormon, and she told us that even though she doesn’t really understand all of it, she feels something good when she reads. We talked about the Holy Ghost, and tried to help her understand exactly what she’s feeling. She’s definitely a prepared investigator, and told us she knows the Book of Mormon is from God and that she would be baptized. The only problem is that she lives in a little village about an hour and a half from Celje (she comes to Celje for school each week), and that distance would cause a big problem with coming to church. We’re still meeting with her though, and I’m praying for some kind of miracle!
On Wednesday we had District Meeting in the morning where we talked about teaching people the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and then spent the rest of the day doing finding. We decided to tract a few big apartment buildings in the center of town, and it was… well, it was tracting 🙂
Thursday was a much more exciting day. We got up at the crack of dawn to catch a train to Ljubljana, and then spent the rest of the day there at zone conference. Conference was great, and we focused a lot on helping investigators progress and on finding and contacting families. I got some good ideas for things we can do in Celje, and left conference feeling great. It was also a blast getting to see the rest of the zone again.
The rest of our week was fairly uneventful. Tracting, contacting, and all those other good missionary things. One thing that made the week especially good was the fact that Slovenia is getting VERY green. The hills look like someone laid a big green carpet over them, and I’m told it’s going to get even greener in the coming week or two.
Overall we had a great week, though I guess I just don’t have too much to report! Elder Petersen and I are getting along great, and we have similar personalitles and ideas. We just work together well, and I’m really enjoying the time with him.
Well, I think that’s everything. The Lord’s work moves forward in Celje, and I just feel so blessed every day to get to be a small part of it. I love you all, and hope you’re having a great week. I pray for you often, and can’t wait to hear from you.
