Drake -- Tie Quilt

President & Sister Nielson had a Mission Reunion in Utah conference weekend.  They had a giant quilt with all of our ties that were cut when we said our goodbyes.
 Elder Harris couldn't bear it :)

Dear Mom,

Happy Birthday!!! (You can read this again tomorrow if you want...)

Something interesting. Women in the United States are always hiding how old they are and stuff. But in Poland, when you walk up to an old lady the first thing she tells you is how old she is!

"Hello there! I am 97 years old and I am still walking around!"

I have never seen so many grandmas walking around on the street until I came to Poland. They are ALL over! And it doesn't matter if they are 80, 90, or 110, they are still walking around the streets all short and hunched over on there little canes with their purse.

Anyway. Happy Birthday!! :) Haha

It's starting to get colder here in Poland. I am having to wear my coat, sweater, and hat. And yesterday I even pulled out my scarf!
Our investigator Ziemowit told us that some meteorologists are predicting that this winter could be the coldest in Poland in like 50 years or something! Uh oh!
Did everybody like the stuff in the package? It was sent so long ago, I don't even remember what was in it!!

We had Zone Training and I bought Elder Mikołyski's guitar. It's cool.
We found out that we won't be having Zone Conference at the end of this transfer.
Instead, we'll be having it at the beginning of next transfer. And it will be at the beginning of the transfer from now on.

Something intriguing.
And so I am kind of sad that we won't be having Zone Conference, but it's kind of okay because there is no one from my MTC group in my whole zone. And they are the most exciting people to see. So maybe I will have one in my zone next transfer.

I gave a talk this week in Church. In Polish of course.  It was 20 minutes long! It was about the Sabbath Day and keeping it holy. I think it went pretty well! My notes were just in English and I just translated them in my head. I think that translated is SO much fun!
I get to do it a lot.

Okay, well I better go!
I hope you have a wonderful week and a happy birthday!
