WEEK #21 IN TIRANA, ALBANIA

On top of the Pyramid of Tirana

November 10, 2014

Family and Friends,

I hope you have had a great week and happy elections! We heard the great news from one of our families in 3rd Ward and all of us Americans here are rejoicing.

This week flew by. We have been working very hard to get our investigator Sulejman ready to begin preparations for baptism. He is showing great progress and we are excited to help him make these steps.

On Monday last we took our investigator Ledi to the Institute Offices for Family Home Evening. We learned 15 minutes after the class was supposed to begin that the teacher was not coming. So Elder Richards and I taught the Family Home Evening class. That was a fun opportunity to get to now some other members and investigators from the other side of the city. One of the younger ladies who took part was baptized this past weekend.

Throughout the week we chopped up a tree we felled in Alfred Abdullari’s back yard and met with Bishop Zela and his family for a lesson at his home. I love Bishop Zela. When I was in Tirana last year he was the 1st Counselor in the District Presidency and then when the Stake was created he is put in as the 3rd Ward bishop. He is one of the most up front and good people you will meet. I am so blessed to be here in 3rdWard.

Today for P-Day we finally climbed the Pyramid at the center of the city and went to the Rogner hotel for lunch with Elder Opper and Elder Griffiths from 1st Ward. I loved spending time with them. Elder Griffiths, a trainee has a smile from here to Rome.
