Ukraine Week 21: Random Exchanges

Well this week has been a fun one filled with surprises and I have loved every min of it. So on monday we went to a family night with a less active family who is starting to be active again and they were cool they have a problem with their lifes that the husband doesn't want to go to the temple and get his endowment and then ultimately get marred, the wife is a return missionary who actually served extra long because she was so good. So we had brother Roman with us and is made the husband download priest videos of his old friend who just became a priest.( I think I have told you his story right?) well if not ask and i will be glad to tell you. 

So after that meeting my back had been hurting but not too bad because when my back hurts I put on the back brace I brought and feel much better. so on tuesday we  went over to this one less active lady in the branch who wanted to get rid of her sewing machine that is from the 50's and still has a crank petal and so we did that and my back still was hurting but I didnt worry  about that too much. 

So on Thursday we got a surprise visit from some of the other missionaries in the mission from a place up in kiev and they came down and one of them was a kid that was in Elder Tribetts group in the mtc but had to go home, But now he is here and we saw him for a second and then had to go. We had a lesson that day with volodia and that was awesome he has been reading the bom and knows its true and before he gets baptized he wants to finish it but as soon as we get ihor a member who was his childhood best friend on the lesson it will be game over get in the fount.

We then on friday convinced the zone leaders to get elder tribett on an exchange with Elder ward was his name and they had a blast they went out with roman and had a blast visiting some people in the branch and everyone loved elder ward soo much. So I was with his companion Elder jacox and he was a really cool kid and defiantly fun to hang out with, we contacted mostly the whole day except this meeting with a man we met on the street about 2 weeks ago on exchanges and his name is Yuri and so we had a good lesson with him he thinks that our church is true.... Along with all the other christian churches so that was fun but let me tell you about his story so me and elder Hansen ( zone leader ) were on exchanges 2 weeks ago and we contacted this man and he has one fake eye and is about 46 and we stooped him and he knew who we were and said yeah I have some friends like you from Israel and Utah and then he spit out the name Spencer Rogers..... Yes the Spencer Rogers we all know and love and call bishop.... So another random meeting with someone from the Rogers past. So he is a doctor and writing a play about moses and he speaks english and he told me the story of when Bishop Rogers was in France I think dancing with his dance group and then how he lived here. Right i know crazy and totally random so i will tell you how that goes. 

So something funny about Ukraine is that there is a holiday for every day of the year almost and there is a day for almost every named person in ukraine so Saturday was day of roman so that was a fun day with him.

Im so sad you didnt find the black ship I hope its not lost forever or else all the children in the world wont have presents.
So erik im interested to hear all about your interesting "friend" my companion thinks that she is black or not a member but i really dont have any idea what mom could be meaning by, I might need to be open to changes sooo email me something about it ok. Oh and where are you trying to go to school? 
Macey also you should tell me where you really want to go to school too?
And Josie Good luck on the tryouts im sure you will do great. 
shawn im glad you are doing better in school and that you are having fun with your new gun and dont shoot your eye out........

So i have a suggestion for all off you if you want to stay caught up with all things missionary in my life go to the mission web i think or something close to it. President writes us weekly news letters with really interesting things in it and this next week we have mission conference in Kiev and that will be a blast cause we are going to the temple afterwards and im really excited.

Love Elder Naumann
