Week 73 – Ploiești, România

Well…first week in Ploiești. It has been good. I was thinking about my last few emails and I realized that they haven’t been happy, or at least I have shown a lot of the sadder parts in my missionary work, or in my life in general. I don’t mean to sound like a pessimist, because

Week 72 – Ploiești, România

Thanks for the wonderful email. It is kind of nice to hear about others struggling. Not because I want others to struggle, but I feel so alone in it sometimes. Which reminds me of what happened just yesterday and this morning. So…I did get transferred out of Brașov and into Ploiești to be a Zone Leader with

Week 71 – Brașov, România

Thank you mom for the wonderful reminder of this holiday. Mary’s perspective is one that we don’t really see. Meaning we don’t put ourselves in her shoes very often. She really had it rough. You said it straight forward. He was her best friend, and she had to go through the pain and grief of

Week 70 – Brașov, România

This week has been fun, and a little depressing. The missionary I am “replacing” is doing just fine. He had his appendix removed, and then was out of commission for about a week. He will be returning tonight, and I will return to my trio. It has been a fun week of “training.” I went

Week 69 – Brașov, România

I have a ton more videos and photos, but this computer at the internet cafe is really dumb. I am figuring it out, slowly. I decided to start a new goal, and that was to get at least one picture a day, until I go home. I thought that would help me remember some things,


Week 68 – Brașov, România

I have been engaged gosh darn it! I like to think that I am working hard anyway. I have been trying to up my game, and it has been amazingly hard. Not because I am not doing what I should be but because the temptation to sink even slightly lower than the bar I have

Week 67 – Brașov, România

A trio companionship is a very interesting thing. There are lots of things that you can not avoid because you are only with one other guy. Little things that involve communication. However, when you are in a trio, you seem to communicate more than a normal companionship, so things work out. We are working really

Week 66 – Brașov, România

This week has been a fun one. So naturally we find out transfer boards and we all freak out because it is crazy where people are going and balh blah blah. This week got fun early (in regards to transfers). We get a call from president on Tuesday and he straight up tells us one


Week 65 – Brașov, România

Dear wonderfulest family ever, This week has been so very interesting. Meaning we didn’t get out much. I was sad by that, but I swear, everytime we get our hopes up, or we plan something amazing, our heating goes out! Then we have to stay in our apartment while they fix it…for three hours. Ugh.


Week 64 – Brașov, România

Just to start this email, the reason why I am emailing you guys today is because two nights ago our heating went out. We had no idea, but we woke up in the morning yesterday and it was SO cold. So we looked at the “centrala” (our heating source) and the normal flame inside was
