“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.” Joseph Smith, Jr.

Week 2 - Krakow
How's it going?
Hope everyone is doing well. This week has been pretty good. Poland
We are outside quite a
bit doing tracting and stuff, but luckily we have 3 new investigators that we
are teaching lessons to, so we don't have to be out in the cold as much as we
otherwise would have.
One of them is named
T. She is progressing well and has a batismal date on the
28th. We have high hopes that she will make it.
Then we have
D. D a pretty cool guy that we have been teaching. I'm
not sure exactly when his baptismal date is, but we are working hard to help
him out so he can make it. We have high hopes for him as well.
Then we have A.
We found her this week as a result of English class and have had one lesson
with her with a couple more scheduled for this week. She is Catholic and
promised to read the Book of Mormon, so it sounds good so far. So things
are going well. We are definitely busy and plan on staying that
I can't believe that it
has already been almost two weeks here in Poland. Time is continuing to
fly by. Our district gets a long super well and stuff. The senior couple feeds us every Sunday with some members and stuff, and that's good. We make spaghetti and chicken and rice and kajobasa and pierogi. It's pretty good. I don't really know how to describe our apartment because I've never lived in one before. It's nice I guess.
Starszy Pettit has been in Poland for almost 5 months now. His Polish is pretty impressive.
we were sweeping snow (they use brooms here for the most part apparently.
I bet you can imagine how well that goes) and I was using a broken broom.
Events transpired, and it ended up slicing part of my hand open. We went
to the doctor and they cleaned it out and stuff. I was worried I might
need some stitches or something, but it has sealed up nice and is healing good,
so that's a good sign.
But stuff is definitely
going well over here. Hope things are going well back at home too.
I love you all, and hope you have a great week!
