He's an 18-year-old lad called Bartek. He used to meet the missionaries about 6 months ago when Elder Dooley was being trained here. He contacted us and asked us if we could meet again. He wants to meet so he can work on his English but he has an interest in the church and its teachings. He wants to find God and 'meet him' as he says. We've taught him some things and then last lesson we just asked him straight up if he wants to be baptised. We promised him that he may not understand now why it's important but that we'll teach him and help him understand. So yeah that's Bartek. We're meeting him again tomorrow.
I had to give another talk at church yesterday and do the translation too. I was told on Friday that I was speaking but Saturday was busy so I prepared during studies before church. It was just about personal prayer. I talked about 3 principles of prayer, making them meaningful, praying for others and I can't remember the last one. I'm far from fully conversant but I can speak and understand good now - but not in any topic. We had dinner at the Gladuns house on Friday night, it was good and we spoke about the economy of England and about Trump and all that, I could understand it all you know but it's hard to keep up in words with the conversation.
We went shopping this morning at 6a.m. There's a huge Tesco not too far from here. We have exchanges In Warsaw with the AP's tomorrow evening to Thursday. I've already organised an early morning game of footy on wednesday. There's going to be 10 of us elders there. On Thursday we have a big zone conference with Elder Johnson of the area presidency coming to visit. Then on Friday we have the leadership meeting so I'm not even going to be in Lublin barely this week.
I'm going to get a haircut and maybe buy some new things today. We're also going to go out for lunch. Love you all. I'm doing well. I'm healthy and I'm enjoying myself. I'm confident with my Polish now which takes so much pressure off. Life is GOOD!
Have a good week.
