Ok so this week we got all the new missionaries and they are great and kind of crazy. the reason for the title is that there are so many of them 64 that everything has goten so crazy and kind of stupid we got them all on our floor and we only have like 12 showers and like 3 of them dont work so needless to say we wake up early so we can get a shower. but its cool to have all those new guys so that we can teach them false things like telling them how to say happy new year and tell them it means hello. but for serious they are really cool we got 3 new kiev missionaries their speaking russion but still they are cool. one of them got in here 6 days after graduation yes highschool graduation and he is still 18 and will be for a year and his sister is in the mtc going to norway and his parents are about to come in, in 2 weeks for the mission pres. seminar yeah mission pres. and they are going to spain yeah kind of crazy but he is fun. ok so this week me and my comps. sang in sacrament meeting and it was really good, elder nielson doesnt know how to sing he really wants to but doesnt know how to he wants to sing tennor but i made him sing bass because it was the only way i could make him sound alright and elder pockrus sang tennor and i sang melody. and it was in ukrainian which was way cool. ok mom before i forget my district is 9c and we live in 12m and we have class in 8m and our branch pres. is pres. cranny. so nothing really exciting happened this week but me and my comps. decided to do something about 2 weeks ago and they are winning it was to keep the same tie on every day untill they got a letter and i got a package i thougt i would where mine for like 2 days because you keep telling me your going to send me a package and then nothing so its been about a 2 week fast from a different tie but i still love you. and i love your letter everyone else in my district doesnt really get dear elders so their usually mine. ok so i litteraly only have like 4 weeks left until im in ukraine and its kind of freaky because we have started to do syl for 3 days in the week and moving up every week and we did it yesterday and it gave me a headache not fun at all but i knew alot more than i thougt. ok so yesterday we had a speaker who is giong to Russia as one of the quoram of the 70 he was really funny and he was a very powerful speaker. ok because there is nothing else to talk about i will tell you about our investigators so first there is tamara and she is a 74 year old woman who is kind of interested in the gosple but is kind of resistant but we have a baptismal date for her but we wont have enough time to teach all the lessons. we also have an investigator named illya he is fun loving and is really cool we have a baptisimal date for him too he said he had a dream and wanted to be baptizeds so we said cool our teacher said time out and we talked about if an investigator says they want to be baptized we need to do something more than saying cool but we didnt understand what he was saying so we responded to what we heard so yeah fun times we teach about 8 times a week kind of streasfull. well yeah other than that yeah we sat in class for 100 hours a week and learn the gosple in Ukrainian. yeah im still a missionary and i serve the lord. I love everyone even you erik. Elder Naumann out
