It has been an exciting week in both Rostov and Krasnodar!
We had some great, powerful lessons this week! We met with Grigori and we were able to teach him the Plan of Salvation! He already had a really good understanding of it from his Christian background and accepted it quickly. At the end, we asked him to pray and afterwards it was visible that he was feeling something so we asked how he felt and he said, "good and peaceful." He then said that those feelings were telling him that he is in the right place. It was powerful to see him feel and recognize the Spirit for himself!
We have been re-teaching Zhenya the missionary lessons and that is going really well. He says he knows the Church is true but has not received an answer quite yet about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. He is reading the Book of Mormon daily though and feels the Spirit when we meet, he is still making great progress and has become a great friend of ours!
All ofI was in Krasnodar with Elder Prescott from my MTC group and we had a great day. We met with some less active members and had powerful lessons about Church attendance and they both commited to come to Church !
We then got to see Yegor who I worked with a lot while I served there and he was all grown up and has a deep voice! He told me he missed me so much and told me all about the temple trip the youth went on last summer and how it changed his life. He is such a good kid and it was awesome to reunite with him!
That is about it for my week! I love you all! Thanks for all the love, prayers and support!
