Tell Ben he did a great job with the testimony! That probably doesn't mean much coming from a greenie, but I love it! I'm saving that one for someone special. I'm glad you had fun at camp, but it's so lame that there weren't any pranks! What's the point of camp if there's no pranks?? But that battle does sound pretty awesome. You know I would have been all over that! I'm working on a list for things in the next package, I'll let you know when I think of everything.Alright this week was awesome!!!! First of all, last monday night we played volleyball with Nastia and her friends again. Stanislov, the 9 year old kid who played with us the first time came back, and this time brought like 5 of his friends haha so they totally crashed the game and took over but it was hilarious. The kids here don't really get volleyball, but they sure love to try. Also Ukrainian girls LOVE to take pictures so we took a bunch of group pictures with us and the kids. I don't have any on my camera but maybe I can get them somehow.
Tuesday President and Sister Lochhead came which was so awesome!!! We got interviews with President Lochhead which is the greatest. We just get to talk about anything that's on our mind and ask any questions we have. My problem is I never have any problems or questions to talk about, but it was still good. Then we spent some time talking about Chapter 10 of Preach My Gospel (teaching skills) and it was so cool because President was teaching us about teaching skills by the way he was teaching, so it was like teaching-ception which was the greatest. Then Sister Lochhead came on a lesson with us and went contacting with us! It was so awesome!!!! Sister Lochhead is the epitome of being bold and loving at the same time. I don't know how she does it. Our lesson was with Albina and her husband who speak perfect English so that was in English and she helped a lot. It was so funny, she just kept saying "you two are going to make such good mormons someday" haha. They were a little suprised by that but I think they knew it was a compliment. Then we went contacting and Sister Lochhead marches straight up to this lady and starts talking to her in English so Sister Erekson translated and it was so cool. Sister Lochhead got this lady, Ivanka, to start talking about her family and she really opened up. They also found out that Ivanka reads the bible every day and Sister Lochhead promised her, "if you love the bible, you'll also love the Book of Mormon" which is totally true! I've never thought to say it like that before. Anyways, we gave her a Book of Mormon and a Liahona and she said she's definitely going to read it every day, and we actually got her phone number so it was a really good contact! Sister Lochhead was so excited! It was only her 3rd time going out with the sisters and she was loving it! Tuesday night we had youth night and we had 7 non-members there which is crazy! It was so fun. Youth Night is definitely my favorite night of the week. We play ping-pong, uno, phase 10, skip-bo, and group games like musical chairs, signs, etc. It's so much fun, and I don't even have to speak Russian to become friends with people. I love it.
Okay that's it for this week. This Saturday the elders have a baptism so we're super excited for that! It's gonna be in river because we don't have a font, so we both get to see a baptism in a river this month! The lady is the sweetest lady every named Galina. She loves us. She asked sister erekson to write down my and sister campbell's name so that she could learn them. She has been practicing them all week and came up to us at church yesterday and said our names perfectly...it was the cutest thing ever! Her husband is also going to be baptized in a few weeks, he just isn't quite as prepared as Galina was. She's read the Book of Mormon 4 times. She is amazing. Okay well that's it for now. I love you and miss you! Have fun with Adam and Stevie! Don't melt in Nauvoo. Have fun without me!!!!
