The Hun's are leaving in 3 weeks!


This week has been pretty great! We had our first Skype lesson with a Hungarian member, so that was pretty exciting. The manager person who gets the contacts all set up didn't think he would have enough people until last minute, and he only gave the other Hungarian district like a five minute notice before their lesson! We went after them, though. But for some reason, the other people doing Skype apparently thought they were only doing a lesson with the other district, and didn't know we were coming later, and only one lady stayed on. To be more convenient, after the sisters taught her, us elders gave her a lesson as a foursome. It was really hard, since we didn't know how to give each other cues to say things, because we are all used to just teaching in companionships. But it was a good lesson -- we talked about faith,  and different things that we can do to grow our faith. 

Six new Estonians arrived in our zone yesterday, four sisters and two elders. I haven't met them yet, but they seem really nice. It has been really fun getting to know the new Fins and Albs. 

The Huns are leaving in 3 weeks! Then we will be in the real world. It's kind of hard to comprehend! When we first got here, the Estonians had about three weeks left before they left to Estonia. It's crazy to think that we're in the same position.

I've got a calling! I'm music coordinator for my branch. I pick out all the hymns on Sunday, and I coordinate who will be the pianist and chorister for different meetings. We all sing in the languages that we are learning, so there are only about 30 hymns that are in all four languages (Estonian, Finnish, Albanian, and Hungarian) but all of those hymns are pretty well known.

P.S. when I refer to people like "the Fins" I am talking about the people who are going to Finland, same with the Huns, the Albs, and the Estonians (they really don't have a cool name). Just in case you were wondering!
