we sent Elder Ormsby this pic with our family letters. His response:
holy smokes, will you stop feeding that boy miracle grow!!! That is so cool, man he is way tall, they both are. That is really cool about the discussion at grandma and grandpas house. well gotta go
(then in a separate letter)
Haha, gotch ya. Well, being in a two man city can get stircrazy, so forgive me of my little prank. Unfortunately your packages haven't arrived yet. I wonder what the UK one will be.
We have been trying to get things in order here in Deva and it has been a little slow. Being called as branch financier (Mom's note: Branch Financial Clerk) and also 1st assistant (Mom's note: 1st Counselor in the Branch Presidency) has put some other duties on me as well as being a missionary. We hope to get the ball rolling and there are some really cool prospective...posibili simpatizanti...possible investigators.
We teach English and after we have a spiritual thought. This last one we gave everyone a copy of the Book of Mormon and asked them to read in it with us. Then as we finished and stood to take them back, one of our students asked us if she could keep the book. Uh ya. Then another woman asked if it would be ok if she could take it as well. Uh double Ya. Hopefully it goes somewhere. Then we were at internet and a young man behind me taped my shoulder as I was watching the Bible videos of Christ. He asked if I liked them and then went back to his business. I had such a strong feeling that I needed to talk to him and give him one of our cards about a documentary? Emisiune. It took me another 5-10 minutes, but God knew what he wanted. So we talked a little bit and he knows a bit about our church. We are going to meet up on Friday and hopefully talk a little bit more about what he watch. For those who know Romanian or just want to watch it the site is www.mormonii.ro and it will be a link on the left side. It is actually really good, although the music is kinda weird. but what to do.
Hey what is this, you skyped the Fs before you skyped me??? Well see if I send you any pictures today haha. Love you all and I am thankful for your willingness and love that I can feel everyday. Miss you all a lot and I cant wait to talk to you in May. I know that God lives and that He has a plan for you. Always remember that in your times of need and trial. They are all for your good D&C 122. Listen to Elder Bruce R. McConkies final talk and you will know how much our Savior loves us.
Oh,. the Love Magnet will LOVE this pic!
There are a lot of beautiful churches in Romania.
Elder B knows a few tricks!
More proof that he knows how to cook.
The missionaries have to brush their teeth at the kitchen sink - the only place in the apartment with filtered water. It looks like a nice apartment.
Elder Ormsby has commented that there are a lot of dogs in Romania. Some are very big. It is hard to tell how big this guy is, so we'll just have to trust Elder Ormsby's judgment.
