2/6/2011 Year of the rabbit - It's been positive celsius outside!

Hello family and friends!

This week wasn't too exciting, but everything is melting here. Not only that, but the winds have been pretty crazy the last 2 days.

We met with Susanta(our investigator) this week. He's from Sri Lanka and grew up budhist. We're trying to get him a testimlny of Jesus Christ. He just seems too caught up on the facts.

We also met with our Landlady and read a pamphlet with her. She's nce... a little odd, but nice.

I made another batch of cookies this week and they're already gone.

On Wednesday, my companion made me senior for the day and had me do all the phone calling and such. It was good for me but a little on the scary side.

Then we had a split the next day where I visited an investigator in the hospital of the elder I was on splits with, the man had had a stroke. We also visited a less active's home and she had some inappropriate pictures on the wall along with some budhist art..yeah. She went through my photos and she saw the one where Ashlyn is holding a rabbit and said how cute it was, that it's the year of the rabbit, and that eating them is bad. I withheld the fact that we raise them all for meat.

This Friday we get transfer calls so that will be intresting. Kharkov had 6 branches that were combined (so now there are three) and when an elder asked President Fry when he was at our district meeting last week something about transfers he said, "Sometimes 1 + 1 doesn't equal 2.), which he took from me at our district meeting with him.

This week we're planning on making a huge pot of borshe that will last us 4 days... that will be good for the digestive system. But hey! It's been Positive Clesius outside!!

Love you all! Have fun out there!
Elder Russell
