Things are warming up!

Hello all family and prijatelji
This week has been an... interesting week.
For one the weather has been still cloudy and rainy, until today!!!!!!!!! It is very very very very very sunny outside right now!!! It is wonderful. For the next few days it is supposed to be up to 10 degrees Celsius, like 55, almost 60! Spring is definitely coming. The flowers are starting to bloom. It is good though since this winter was not at all as bad and long and snowy as last year. It is just Pust next week, and it will be strange to have a festival  to ˝scare away the snow˝ when there are flowers and grass all over the place.
We had a Zone Conference with Croatia on Wednesday where Elder Charles, a newly called area seventy came and taught. It was an incredibly spiritual experience in which we learned so much personally on what we can do to continually improve and become the best missionaries and people we can be.
This week for the work, we have had a lot of great success. The biggest of course, are with the 15 year old and 17 year old friends. After not having a lot of contact with them throughout the week, we met with them on Friday (Elder Burdette and Simon actually as we were on exchanges) And taught the gospel of Jesus Christ (Faith, repentance, baptism, the holy ghost). In it they taught about the example Jesus set for us in being baptized, and invited both of them to be baptized themselves and they said yes! They are set right now for about 3 weeks. They have been regularly to Church as well, and even came to a youth activity with us on Saturday where the branch youth met, had a lesson and lunch, and then went go carting. It was a great day. We are incredibly excited for them!!!!!
Otherwise this week should be a more normal week than last, or not, we shall see. You never know if you are going to get a call saying... yeah... we need you to come down to Zagreb this Friday... You never really know what is going to happen, especially as you are a leader.
Hope all is warming up at home.
Be safe and strong!
