|Elder Acheson at Krujë Castle, Albania|
September 30, 2013
This week has been filled with a lot of good work. The Missionary Routine is finally setting in and I feel wonderful. Tirana is awesome because there are always more people to be found, taught, and baptized. There is no shortage of work for us.
Aside from Maliq we are working with our other investigators continually. We are dealing more with the problems associated with our investigator with the mafia boss uncle. That is still stressful because he can’t read his Book of Mormon at home because his family at home has to report anything out of the ordinary to the uncle. Reading a religious book is a red flag. But we are still trying to figure that out.
|The beautiful Krujë Castle in Albania|
Today, as a district we went to a town called Krujë about an hour north of Tirana. Krujë has the beautiful castle that pops up if you Google search Albanian Castles. The town is a small tourist trap with the Castle of Skandërbej, Albania’s national hero. He is like the George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Queen Elizabeth combined of Albania. I’ll write about Skandërbej in some future email. At Krujë, we visited a Gjami or Mosque high in the mountains and the castle. I also had my first bartering experience in getting an antique razor from about $30 to $5 and had the guy repair it for me. A small success.
