This week has really good for us. My comp like I had mentioned last week from Cali from San Clemente so down south of me. Really funny he just told me his mom is from San Mateo and I was shocked because he told me that his mom went to the same high school as me. Go Dons! youngest out of 4. Hes a surfer kid. So Chhhhiiilllll bbbbrrrrrooooo. He reminds me of the buglers from a old classic movie 3 Ninjas. I couldn't stop laughing. Super funny comp and talks nonstop. But its cool I like it instead of me just talking to myself. lol. Sometimes I feel sorry because I just fall asleep when he talks to me at nites. I love my comp and can see him progress so fast in the mission. Easy for him to just click with the people here of Constanta so really excited to keep ourselves busy and have fun at the same time. We met up with Leo who is always making us laugh I keep telling him he looks like Kevin Hart a comedian. He gets really irritated but its funny. The lessons have been really smooth for us but seems to have a hard time understanding the priesthood authority. We look forward to cooking some Nigerian food with him this Saturday. TakeCareNow our other Nigerian investigator has been really good and progressing but we need to make some bold moves for him in order to come closer to our Heavenly Father. This week should be fun the start of English so we will be teaching the beginners and will have Zone Conference in Buch. I am super stoked and excited to learn more and how we can continue to better ourselves as missionaries. Our mission has been focusing on the Book of Mormon and making sure that the members read it before Thanksgiving. As a companionship we should have it done before our mission trip Mountains to Moves' Round 2 for me. It has not only strenghten our companionship but for ourselves as we feast upon the words of Christ and continue to find new things. So I challenge my family and friends to read the BOM before Thanksgiving. It gives us the opportunity to find more blessing but keep ourselves grounded in the gospel. And for those who say they don't got time. We got a church app and download away and read it. Lunch Break, Bathroom Break or even waiting at the bus stop for school. Where ever just read, if yall got time to scroll up with FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter or HauaAta with this PokemonGo thingy. Yall got time for Jesus. I say this to all the people here especially with all the Nigerians here they get a laugh at it. Thanks yall hope everyone is enjoying the summer whether at home. Keep ya posted next week.
Lets see quick recap' Transfer came out. Im staying in Constanta and my new comp is E.Boud from Cali. Super nervous at first but should be chill. Thankful for my time serving with E. Cowser such a humble and hardworking kid. Learned alot from him. Met up with so many Nigerians and members. Learned pidgeon to whole new level. lol. Leo and TakeCareNow probably my favorite two Nigerian investigator. Hopefully, this transfer I will push myself even further. For gospel principal taught SERVICE' which was super chill meeting people from the military base and students from states who are here for the Iasi program. Found out great news one of the military friend Brent told us about Lee getting baptized today in the states. I remember when I first came into Constanta my previous comp told me all about Lee. But he was out in Poland. He ended up taking lessons from the missionaries in the states. When we seen Brent he dropped the news on us at church and how he decided to get baptized. I was super happy for him. Our whole district was stoked for him. I didn't even meet the guy but super happy for him. lol. I saved a kid from sleeping in a locked car. Probably the most scariest thing to witness live. It just took me back at first because I was trying to see if I can help him but the heavy breathing fogged up the car. He was trying to write things but good thing his mom came. Thankful he was able to get out because he sweating like crazy but turned to me and said thank you and god bless you'. All I can say is good thing we were there at the right time. Shared the Mormon message video Lift in gospel principal', if you haven't seen it watch it. Its real good and gives us a constant reminder to lift one another at all times. Worth the watch.
Wherefore, be faithful; stand in the office which I have appointed unto you; succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees. D&C 81:5

Hope everyone will have a nice 4th of July with fireworks and all. Crazy to think 16 months out on the mission just flies by. Truly thankful for my time here and continue to put my all through my time here in Romania.
This week for us was another slow week. Lets just say me and cats don't go. I was already sick and got a bad allergic reaction to holding a small kitten. It ended up looking like I went in to boxing ring and fought myself with two black eyes and busted lip. Thats how I looked like for a few days. Thanks to CocaCola glasses for hiding the end result. So after recovering from that my comp and I decided to go hit up the Hotel Flora and just block knock the whole Hotel hoping that some Nigerian would listen to our message. We wanted to use the new videos for the BOM that issued out in our mission. But by the time we got to the Hotel the front desk told us "Everyone MOVE out" in my head we had to come up with something. I just hated being inside for a few days and all I wanted to do is just something or meet up with anyone. Luckily, we met up with Festos who is super chill Nigerian who loves the Lord to the fullest. And he respects how we share the message of God with people here. All I can say is Nigerian know the Bible in the back of their heads. Literally. There are times where I like freeze trying recollect what they just said and respond back. But thankful for companions who just burst out real quick. But Festos and his friends are really receptive and nice about learning about Christ. We hope to meet up with Marius this week and pray that he will get baptized by the end of this month. His mom always calls us and makes sure we pray for her family. Its really cool saying prayer with them as we end our nites. Loving the work and striving for more.
