Ukraine Week 17: How many Book of Mormons?

Well this week has been fun and alot of the time was spent on the street doing a table of books. So on monday we got a shipment of ukrainian books of mormon and we got 8 boxes with 22 books in each box so yeah we thought we would be set for a while but man were we wrong. So our new thing instead of handing out english cards is we hand out books of mormon like they are candy and people eat them up. The funny thing about ukraine is that nothing is free absoulutly nothing so when we try to hand out books of mormon people try to pay us and we tell them that its free its free just take it and i think like 5 people have flat out just refused to take the book thinking that its a book and books cost money so that is always fun. So we have handed out about 50 books of mormon and man it has been such a high we dont even know what to do with ourselves we have already gone through almost 3 boxes and we just got them and we only did table of books 3 times this week well 4 times but the last time we did it on a saturday night in center and lets just say that we had to leave early cause people called the police on us Woopes. Well yeah doing table of books is like one of my favorite things to do i love it to death. 

This week was halloween and what did we do...... absolutely nothing i was kind of sad but i hope all of your halloweens were awesome but yeah. but the end of the night we ended up in a hanted house. So here is the story we have this one man in our ward who is less active and was recently baptized so we were trying to set up with him but like i have told you many times everyone here has the same name and his name was oleg and there are like 5 olegs in our ward and one of them is crazy and walks with a limp and also tries really hard to speak english but kind of fails so yeah so we have been out with this crazy guy on a table of books and lets just say we call him the shark cause he literaly chases down groups of 15 year old girls trying to invite them to english and so yeah funny nothing better that a 50 somewhat year old man to get you over the top. So lets just say we set up with this guy and he was just super stoked but we tried to set up with another guy but its was funny so we went over to this guys house and its this big apt. building where for some reason all the windows were barred and there was this 15 foot high fence up and we got there and called the guy and he said he would come out to get us and after 20 min of sitting there he called us and told us he was haveing a problem getting out of the building and my companion and i were like oh no this is a mental hostpital like we had thought earlier so we wait and talked about who on earth would baptize a mentaly handycapt man but turns out he live in the back building and he is not in the crazy persons house but his house was rather crazy.

But this week was also good i took the lead in having us talk and meet with members more and because the zone leaders were out of town the whole week we spent alot of time with roman listney and he is just the best we spent days with him doing missionary work with less actives but its hard to get meeting here cause none of the members want or have time to meet so i wish i had brother lloyds problem but we dont we are out on the street weither we like it or not we have to fill our time with something productive and so yeah we visited alot of less actives this week and really tried to get our branch list cleaned up so we could really start doing work here with all the less actives so yeah.

But yeah i hear the ellections are about to happen so once you know you need to tell me but yeah also i tried sending you a voice recording but it was way too long and the computer wouldnt let me send it. 

Kim I did get your letter and i loved it it was everything i remember about you but yeah i did get it. 
Alexis so yeah im really excited for you to get your mission call i know you will do great out where ever you go and it will be all good cause i will get home and then like 2 months later you will get home so not even a bad deal. 

Love Elder Naumann
