Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is God, and beside him there is no Savior. Great is his wisdom, marvelous are his ways, and the extent of his doings none can find out. His purposes fail not, neither are there any who can stay his hand. From eternity to eternity he is the same, and his years neverfail. For thus saith the Lord—I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end. Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.

We Had Another Baptism

So this week has been CRAZY!!! But still epic. We had a BAPTISM!!! Two, to be exact! :) Their names are Anna and Jozef. They are 11 and 10 and are AMAZING! I love them so much!
Taking over the Don Valley area is not easy. I don't speak much Slovakian and we've faced a little adversity, but there is no doubt in my mind that everything is going to work out for the best. Basically, I'm learning how to speak better Slovakian REALLY fast. Haha.
Sister Harrop is great! She and I are really getting along and she is going to be a FANTASTIC missionary!! She is already amazing!
So, today, for p-day, some elders have been DYING to see me break something with my martial arts skills. So they found a 'bit of wood' which is actually a PLANK and they want me to break it. I don't know if I'll be able to, but I'm gonna try my best. :)These little elders are far too excited about it all. It's pretty hilarious.
Well, this email is short. I'm terribly sorry. This whole telling you what happens day by day is going to be alot easier when I'm home and I can just tell you stories. Or read my journal to you, which I have written in everyday of my mission so far. Anyway, I love you all so much!!
