It feels like its like Thursday right now, this week went by so quick. We traveled yet again west over to Tirana, Albania for Mission Leadership Council, where we talked about asking for more referrals and having less pride, more charity. We're finishing up reading the Book of Mormon for the 2nd time in 2 months, and we were all worried that President would drop it on us to ready it again in a month. He did, but this time he's giving us 6 months, and also all of Preach My Gospel. President Weidmann is easily one of the best people I've ever met in my life. I think you've got to be a special person to supervise the work of so many 19-20 year old kids for 3-years straight, being forced to work with them. And President Weidmann does it with so much love and inspiration for us.

We came back to Skopje and led the Zone Training, which turned out pretty decent. There is an elder in the zone that only speaks Albanian, so someone was live translating in the audience, and it was way distracting.

We all went over to the Waterman’s house, the embassy family here. They're such good people, holy cow. And they've got the sweetest little kids.

That's about it for the week! I hope all of you enjoy yours. I just checked our phone, it turns out it was off, and the APs called 4 hours ago probably asking for numbers. So gotta go!
