After the activity, Elder Barlocker translated for President Miner and I translated for Elder Johnstun as all the youth got their Temple Recommends. I wish you all could have seen how happy and excited they were just to hold that piece of paper in their hands! It was powerful. They all got on a trainmorning and probably are just getting there today or even - multiple days on the train! All for the temple! That is dedication!!
Yesterday was a great Sabbath. Last Monday on our way to write home, a lady stopped us and asked if we were the Mormon missionaries. She then introduced herself as an in-active member who had just arrived to Sochi. We got her our information and she came to church yesterday! Seemed like she had a great experience, so that was an awesome tender mercy - it is not every day we get stopped by members of the Church on the street. Also our new investigator Nikolai, came to church! He was with us for all three hours but then did not have time to meet afterwards so we will see him later this week. Wahoo!!
Last night andwe are in early due to "Russia Day" celebrations. So happy Russia Day!! Until next week!
