Hey Family!!!So this week just flew by sooo fast. The weeks really fly by when you have change. And so with my new comp (Elder Stumpf) It's been a little different going from Training someone to Sending someone home after this transfer. But It's been really good. Im really excited to learn alot from him cause he just has so much experience. But yeah we are just learning to work hard and find those that are searching the truth.

Man probably best week of my mission. I know I always say that but this time I really mean it.
So first we got transfer calls on wednesday. President is keepin me here in Wrocław for my third trasnfer here! Im good with that cause i love it here. My companion is Elder Stumpf from Germany. He's a tall kid and a stud. Speaks better English than I do. But so we are pretty stoked to just od work this transfer! This is actually his last transfer on his mission. He's served here in Wrocław before. And so he was really excited to get back.
And then obviously we had the Poland Warsaw Mission Conference. All the missionaries. And all the members that could come were there! It was so amazing. On saturday we had a meeting with President Uchtdorf and he actuallly shook all our hands first and just kind asked who we were. hahaha it was super fun and super spiritual. My comp obviously got a hug cause he is German. But man so good the spirit was so strong as everyone spoke. And I could tell that President Uchtdorf really did have a calling from God. And he was an Apostle with those Preiesthood Keys. Pretty amazing. Something ill never forget for sure.
Something that really hit me was when he talked about our calling as missionaries. I love how he speaks cause he is up beat and really bold at some points in his talks. But then he will get really quiet and just lets the spirit sink in to what he is saying. It's so amazing. And he just really hit on how our calls to poland are not just by chance. But a calling from God. The spirit was so strong there. Everything he said was just so good and I just soaked it all up. In the End his testimony couldnt have been more powerful. He said slowly, "I know we have a Savior. He lives. I know him." It was just so good and I cant even explain it.
But yes everything has just been amazing. After the conference we had a train back to Wrocław that was about 7 hours total cause it was a little late. But we made is back.....
hahah everything was good til this morning we are doing language study.... and the washer (for our clothes) like exploded. really it sounded like a bomb when off. We go running into the bathroom and you couldnt see anything but we opened it up. And like all these pieces were broken and we actually layed it on its side and the whole bottom was blown out. so thats fun....
ahahha so not really sure what we are gonna do bout that yet. But uh yeah imma gonna call the mission office about this when im done here.
Everything really is great. And im just really excited to hit the ground running right now and find those that are searching for the truth. Im so thankful for all your prayers for me. I know that they help. And I know that we have a responsibility so share this gospel and repent and change our lives.
Love you all. Miss you all! But never been so happy!

So this week just flew by, like every week. But we were supposd to get transfer callsThis past week was really good. I dont know if I already told you guys about this guy named Mieczysław. But I met him on the streets about three months ago. And we've kinda met off and on. But he come to church a while ago and after I was talking to him and he was saying that he felt like only rich people come to this church and that these people are too good for him. And I was really confused cause there arent likre rich people in Poland. But as he was saying this our branch president who is just super humble and actually like disabled and on crutches comes up to him and like welcomes him and is just super friendly. Mieczysław was really impressed by that. And we've met with him off and on. But he has never taken a Book of Mormon cause he didnt see the need for it. A week and a half ago he finally took a Book. And we text him EVERY day and give him reading assignments. And have been meeting with him every week. So he really is our only progressor so far. But alot of exciting things are happening. The baptisms in this mission are really shooting up. So we are excited to find those ready to recieve it! but they actually moved it to and . So how its working out is if you are transfereing to a new area then you will just bring all your stuff into Warsaw for the President Uchtdorf Conference and then leave there with your companion. So I really couldnt be more exicted for this next week with The Poland Warsaw Conference. Its gonna be amazing to be there with all the missionaries and members. And an Apostle too.
Love you guys! Have the Best week ever! Im thankful for all your prayers! I know they carry me throughout my mission!
