Bishop calls us up and says "I want you to visit this member, she is less-active." We went over to her house and she had recently gotten married. Her Italian husband didn't "speak" Albanian or English. I say "speak" because he understood what we said but he couldn't speak and sometimes his wife translated for us! It was so weird! He was speaking to his mother-in-law, she doesn't speak Italian, and he doesn't speak Albanian, but they were both talking in those languages and the crazy part, they were having a conversation! IT WAS CRAZY!!!
I was at the church, I looked out the window, into a courtyard type thing, and I saw a cat sleeping there! So of course, I went out there and looked at the cat. It then woke up, and abruptly ran away! 2 days later, I saw it again and I tried feeding it but it ran away again! So... the reason why I told you this story is because, if you were a cat, what type of food would you like?
It was raining so much this week! For 2 days in a row we got super wet! For the first day we were trying to wait for the rain to lighten up a little bit... but it didn't... so we just walked through it! The 2nd day we remembered an umbrella... or you could say someone forgot an umbrella at the church!
Our Homie Klaus and Aleks (Alex) are getting baptized this week and I am excited! My sons passed the sacrament! N* AND B*, passed the sacrament this week! You have no idea how cool it was to see both of them pass the sacrament, for the first time! It would be as if you had twins passing the sacrament for the first time and you taught them how to do that! know what I am sayin!?
Skyping the family was cool too! I love my family!
"Believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them." Mosiah 4:10
It isn't just about knowing what the Gospel is, but we must apply in into our lives like King Benjamin said.
I have started to grow a love for the scriptures and all they teach me!
READ THE SCRIPTURES!!
Love you all! have a great week
Elder Michael Ueston
