I have made it safely here to Timi all the way back to the West. Over a 14 hour ride from Constanta to Timisoara. Through my long train ride. I really hate cricket life. So I ended up talking with two cool people Elena and Carmen who are from my first city Arad. I shared with them my purpose why I am here and my experience thus far. Good thing they work down in Timi the next few weeks.Had to go down to Buc and drop off my comp. Lol. Really gonna miss the kid Elder Lemon. But he got it and he will be with one of my previous companions which they should do some solid work. Really sad to leave Constanta. But super happy to be here in Timi with Elder Dunkley. He is a really funny elder and loves to have a good balance of work and fun. All and all getting the lords work done is very important.Really cool miracles happening here Bianca a investigator here has great desire to be baptize soon. So all yall keep her in your prayers. She has been coming to church the past 2 weeks and loves the discussions we taught about this past Gospel Principals class. Very interactive or somewhat argumentative discussion. lol. But I love it. She loves the temple and the things we do in our church. We just hope that she continues to make step by step commitments to taking the next step. The members here are pretty interesting. Reminds me of the Sibiu branch but the women here are super involved in missionary work. One member in partiuclar is super funny. Sora Nedelcu is the first member here in Timisoara she knows everyone and their business. But one really cool thing about her was how she found the church with previous missionaries who had served here. She shared an old photo album with her family told her story which was really cool to listen. But the previous missionaries who have served here still keep in touch with her Sometimes its just funny to listen and let her do her give us the information about the members and less active. This past Sunday we had close to 15 people at church and nice to meet everyone and build off a relationship quick. And nice to celebrate my comps bday this past Sunday. 21' lyfe. Made banana pancake and Ro'sMommySyrup (past comps recipe). But I am looking forward to the work here and see the progress in the people we meet with here. This gospel truly changes lives for me I have seen it within my family. Having the desire to share my story with the people here can click off and go so far. I love it because it allows me to be personal and have them open up and lift there spirits.
