Week 78 – Ploiești, România

Ploiesti_Hike_04_1200I wish I could tell you a lot about what happened this week, but nothing happened this week. The news is that I will stay in Ploiesti, and serve with a new companion. He is just coming out of the office, and so i will electrocute him back into action. (The office tends to hurt peoples motivation 😉 ). I just want to work super hard. I think that the biggest thing was that I posted pictures this week. There was a lot of pictures to post, and I still haven’t posted the videos yet. I still need to do that. I hope that you guys liked the pictures. There was a few parts on the hike that scared us. We got really freaked out with the running water underneath the ice/snow we walked on. I think that we were happy to sit down on the train. I will have to tell you all about the stories when I see the pictures because, most of these things can only be told in story format. And seeings how I will have two years worth of pictures and stories, I may go on and on and on. I hope you guys won’t mind. I am glad that we have this kind of technology. I like being able to look back and see the growth in myself, physically, and seeing the really cool landscapes and people that I have served with and around. It is so cool!

Ploiesti_Hike_07_1200I really don’t have any other stories. I had to give a 20 minute talk on sunday. So I prepared really hard for it, and I spoke for over 30. oops. I think that made the last speaker a little mad. He had less than five minutes. I had a lot to say. It was really good though. I talked about healing. It was really cool. I love that when you are given an assignment you accept it, but with a frown on the inside, but then you realize that you needed this opportunity to learn about what you will talk about. It was one of those, and it felt really good. I think I am coming out of a funk too. Something about working with a dying companion again makes me feel like I should be packing my bags and heading home in a few days too. it is also hard when you area so close as well. Ugh. I am going to keep working and focus in. I will try to write more next week as well. We are just finishing up things with Elder Speyer. Life is still so good, and I am glad that you all are happy. That means a lot to me. It is so vital to me that we choose to be happy, and have faith in the future. The Lord will take care of us. I feel strongly about that. I love you all!

Love, Varstnicul Nick Oldham
