Testimony Meeting in 3 Languages

We finally got in contact with that kid we had the date for, too late for him to be baptized, that was supposed to be on Saturday. But we should be meeting with him sometime in the next few days. Other than that, not really anything new. We had a few member visits with the branch president. He takes us with him to translate. We were at a member's house and they fed us sarmale. I usually don't like the sarmale, but this one was different. instead of wrapping the rice and meat in pickled cabbage, they used grape leaves. Let me tell you that it is a night and day difference between the two. I have a hard time stomaching the cabbage stuff, but the stuff with grape leaves actually tastes alright.

We had a lesson this week. But it was with this 70 year old guy who has been investigating the church for like 10 years. His story is nuts, and we are pretty sure he's a little nuts as well. He had his records removed from the Baptist church because he didn't believe what someone told him there. And now, he just calls missionaries all over Romania all the time. But we went over to his house. He was super nice, had a lot of snacks and soda. We showed him how to work the tablet and camera that his kids gave him, and after that we had a little Gospel discussion. We probably won't go over there again, he's super nit picky about every little thing, and his main thing was why we don't use wine and unleavened bread for the sacrament. Some people and their ideas I suppose.

Church on Sunday was cool. We have a few members here that go to Italy to work and then come back to Romania for a bit. They brought a few of thier friends from Italy, who are also members. And it was fast and testimony meeting, so they both got up and the member translated from Italian into Romanian during sacrament meeting. And, during priesthood, something similar happened when they said stuff, but after it was translated into Romanian, I translated it into English for our branch president. We had 3 languages in our meetings on Sunday. How was it in just English for you? haha. I could actually understand some of the Italian too. Crazy learning another language.

That's about it for the week. we find out about transfers this week on friday, I'll probably stay, my comp is probably leaving though.
