WEEK #13 IN FIER, ALBANIA


(Elder Acheson's camera is broken and no new photos to share.  This editor is recycling earlier photos from his mission.)

This week has been a good one for us here in Fier. Elder Matson and I had a consecration week were we only spoke in Albanian to one another. I feel that he and I were blessed throughout this week because of our efforts. We had a new invitation to try and meet with every investigator every day. We did our best to do that and I feel that we were very successful in those efforts.

We have a new investigator named Piro. His son Dhimetri (12) is a a member as well as his wife. We visited them about 5 times this week and saw some great progress. He has learned with missionaries before and he has read the Book of Mormon. We have challenged him to get baptized and we are working together slowly to get him to that point.

We are also working with a couple. Their names are Krenar and Elsa. They are English course investigators and we have been doing 50% Gospel and 50% English with them. They started only wanting English but they are excited to learn about the Gospel. Endrit, the Elder's Quorum President, has been very helpful with their lessons; he also speaks English very well.

I was assigned to be the new Gospel Principles teacher about 30 seconds before the class began after sacrament meeting on Sunday. I am excited to work with the investigators and recent converts. I am very happy to have a teaching call here in Fier. 

On Monday we went down to Vlorë for Sister White's birthday. We had lunch and walked around a bit. It was a nice day that we were able to share together as a district.

I love you all and hope to be able to report an even better week next week.
