With tracting, usually it's in apartment buildings, so we usually ring on what are called domofons. I attached a video I took of one my third transfer. Basically how it works, is you stand outside the apartment building and enter in the number of the apartment you want to call to, and then they'll answer and you can talk back and forth. We usually go with the approach something like "Jesteśmy z Kościoła Jezusa Chrystusa, i dzisiaj rozmawiamy z ludźmi o Jezusie Chrystusie", or "We're from the Church of Jesus Christ, and today we are talking with people about Jesus Christ". Then if they want to listen, they'll either listen over the domofon, or they'll let us in. We'll usually talk about how Jesus visited the people in ancient America. It's good.

I think that I passed my 100 day mark this week. I don't know how I feel about that. It feels way too fast, but at the same time, I feel a little like I have always been on a mission. Elder Hadfield sang sto lat to me, but switched the lat for some case of dzień. I think that that was the day of the silliest rain storm of my life. We have been finding people from the Area Book and visiting them and then knocking on the doors of their neighbors recently. We went out to find this one guy who lived so far out of the city center that his house was in a forest. He was nice, but not interested. Then we were waiting to go back to the center on a tram when it started to rain. It soon became some of the hardest rain that I have seen for a long time. We were under a cover, so we were safe. We got on the tram, and we were going on our merry way through a torrential downpour. Then all of the sudden the rain stopped. It had only been like 10 min. That wasn't even the silly part. The sun came out and there was a beautiful sunset. We got off at a stop to switch trams, then suddenly there were trams that shouldn't have been there going down the track. I guess that the 10 min rain had flooded their tracks. It was all types of ridiculous. I can't support it. I don't think that it has rained since then.
We taught English on Saturday, and I thought that It was bomb. The most people that we have had come to a Saturday English class has been 2, and last week we didn't have anyone. This week there were 5 people. It was insane. They just kept coming. We started with a prayer like normal and then had everyone describe their favorite movie. It ended up that a lot of the favorite movies were really sad, but I found a way to only cry a little bit. After that we played a game where we had one person go out of the room and we picked something that they had to draw and then we had to explain step by step how to draw it. It worked really well. We got some great drawings out of it. Picasso would have been proud. After that we had two people stay for the Religious discussion after the class, and they liked it a lot. Four of the people said that they were going to come back next week and the other one said that he might go horseback riding or something. I'm pumped. It was a good English class.
