Family and Friends,
We have had a good full first week of the transfer here in Durrës.

Elder Ašler and I, with Elders Grey and Stewart headed to Fier for Zone Training. There I we received a wonderful training from Elder Palmer and Elder Bilodeau. The training was excellent. We have been asked to focus on inviting people to be baptized in the first lesson. I have personally seen great blessings come from this. We are very fortunate to be serving in a place where people are relatively open-hearted. It was very nice to see my former companions Elders Ostergaard, Price, and Bilodeau. Elder Wagstaff is training again up in Gjakova which is one of the more isolated places of the mission and I unfortunately will not be able to see him for some time.
We additionally are trying to make an effort to work more closely with members. We are fortunate to have access to a couple of prospective missionaries. We are blessed to have these future missionaries because their testimonies are very powerful in touching the hearts of investigators.

We have had a great time getting the new missionaries familiarized with the Ward. We stopped by the Pjetri Family together as a district afternoon and had a wonderful lesson with them. I love being with our district. We had a French toast and Risk party this morning for P-Day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself; winning helps.
Elder Ašler and I have another excited week ahead of us and we are excited to dig in and work!
With great love,
