Life is great! This was a great week. We had Zone Leader council this week which is always amazing. The spirit is always so strong there and you leave a better missionary. Also we saw a lot of miracles this week. The first is a man from Kurgan. He called us on Friday and asked to meet with us that day. He is less active but is great. He moved here to Ekat and is working. He hasn't had any interaction with the church for awhile and he just had the feeling to call and meet with the missionaries. Elder Olsen knew him because he served in Kurgan so that was a great connection. Hopefully he will return to activity. One more priesthood holder in the branch would be great. The next miracle is we went to go help a less active do some service and her cousin was there. She listened to our spiritual thought and was really interested and took a Book of Mormon. She wants to meet again so that was great. Also we were walking home a few days ago and right before we got home we decided to go a little further and walk past our house, go in through the gate on the opposite side and talk with the people we saw walking over there. At first everyone rejected us but then a man walks around the corner and is really interested and super nice. We have a meeting with him and hopefully his family tonight! So the Lord is really blessing us with some promising people to teach. :) Haven't had a chance to meet with Sasha's family again and his mom hasn't been to church again. Hopefully next week she will come to church. :) Oh yeah sorry I didn't write yesterday it was a holiday here in Russia and all the places were closed.

Elder Zhdanov's package did come and I'm sure all those things you bought for his b-day would be great. Send it all. His size is definitely a large. Maybe mines a medium but idk. I still were my large shirts and they seem to fit okay but a medium might be better. Elder Zhdanov says hi and that he loves you all! :)

Thank you for all that you do.You all are in my prayers and I love you soo much. Continue to walk in the light, hold on to the rod as tight as you can! :) God loves you!!!
From Russia With Love,
