A pizza

Funny story: I met this one guy who started speaking to me in English. He said he learned all his English from movies and listening to Eminem songs!! Killed it. 

Our friend Arjan will be getting baptized on the 13th and he has a super cool story:
This member felt a prompting to buy a pizza and to give it to someone. She didn't know who. She went walking around and found this really old guy (Arjan's dad) and talked to him and gave him the pizza. That next week he came to Church. We talked to him and went to his house the following week (he lives about 30 mins away). We met his family and his son Arjan. Arjan loves coming to church, reading, meeting with us, and wanted to be a member. We told him he had to stop smoking if he wanted to be a member. 
We have been teaching him for about 7 weeks now, he has stopped smoking and is ready for baptism. He now is helping us and has brought 2 of his friends to church which is awesome! I am so grateful that member felt and listened to the prompting of the Spirit. Because of that God is welcoming one more soul into his kingdom!

This week seemed very good! We started english course and it is awesome!!  I bought a sweet watch this week. It's been raining a lot, and we had a Zone Conference in Fier. Just a normal week.

Spiritual thought:
This week we went "area book contacting" and we called this one person who really seemed interested in meeting us. We met them the next day and turns out they live about 1 hour away and don't have a lot of money for a bus to come to Elbasan, but they were here for a funeral. It was amazing how the day that we went area book contacting was the perfect time for us to call them, we were definitely blessed by the spirit. Also she said that her and her family had meet with the missionaries 3 years ago but couldn't be baptized because they lived so far away and couldn't come to church, but she had been reading the Book of Mormon for 2 and a half years, and with in the last 6 months stopped, and said she had waited for us to call them again. We definitely were blessed too be able to meet them and were inspired to call them.

I am grateful that we have the gift of the Holy Ghost to guide us and to help others. I know that God lives and this is his church! 

Love you all!!
