Albania hospital

This week was really interesting. I was with the mini missionary for 5 days. He had to do a lot of passport stuff and go to the "hospital." and stuff like that. 

We went to this one hospital and imagine a high school chemistry lab, all the chemicals out on a table, on a metal table, and with medical tools all over, then to top it off, the walls were kinda falling apart. It really made me grateful for American hospitals! **don't worry mom there are other hospitals that are good**

Church was only 1 hour this week because we went to an Albanian funeral for a sister. Funny story, we were going to visit her but we didn't know where she lived. Looks like we don't need to know anymore. ;) but serious if you feel a prompting to visit someone you should!! 

On Sunday night we found this guy who had met with missionaries before, his name is Kujtim, he is awesome, he lives really far away but we hope that we will be able to meet with him because he is so awesome! He said he knew the Church was true and remembers some Elders from a while ago! 

Spiritual thought:
This week I really liked what Alma said in this scripture:

Alma 34:9 "for it is expedient that an Atonement should be made; for according to the great plan of the Eternal God there must be an Atonement made."

Not many people understand how amazing the gift of the Atonement is! Since the beginning of the earth, God had a plan to have Christ Atone for us so that we all can live with him again. 
I know that God lives and through the Atonement we can be ceased of sin and be able to have endless happiness with our Savior and best friend.
