Family and Friends,
Hello from stormy Durrës!

We have received a large storm system from our friends up north and are enjoying a in-door P-Day.
Today we have enjoyed a wonderful excursion to the Durrës library. That may sound boring, but I can assure the reader that it was anything but boring. We had a look into literature from the communist regime. I flipped through a book printed by the communist government called "Shqipëria e Re" or

But we have had a great week in Durrës on top of a great P-Day. We found an excellent Seafood restaurant: Restaurant Riçard (Richard), which incidentally is right next to the Library.
|Elder Acheson sure loves seafood!|
Hekuran is on his way to being baptized. He has borne his testimony to us and we have shared some touching spiritual moments with him. He is excited to share the gospel with his family. He brought his niece to a lesson and she wanted to begin receiving the lessons from our sister missionaries her in Durrës. I am very excited for Hekuran's growth in the gospel.

Just today, we ran across a man in the street with whom we had appointed a baptismal date. We came to the conclusion after he disappear, that he had died. He is an older gentleman but we ran into him and we are excited to begin teaching him again.
I love my city, my companion, my people, and my mission. I am excited for all prospective missionaries who will soon be joining the ranks of missionaries in the field. It is such a sweet experience.
I love you all and hope you have an excellent week
