July 7, 2014

Well another week in Leeds! I love it here. We have been doing a lot more finding lately and it has been a lot of fun. We found a Slovakian family! The Bodnars. The father is from Hungary and the mother is from Slovakia. They are incredible. Me and Elder Jensen were walking through a pretty dodgy part of our area and we saw a man sitting on his porch and we approached him. He didn't speak much english but we communicated well enough to ask us for a picture of Jesus Christ. We told him we would bring him one. Anyway me and Elder Hobby were on exchange and we went by and his family was there and it was one of the most powerful lessons of my mission. The son Richard spoke a little bit of english, but mostly we just taught them out of the Book of Mormon in Slovak and google translate. Even through the language barrier the Spirit was so strong. Part way through the lesson the family was trying to explain something to us but we couldn't understand. They invited us upstairs to the top of their tiny terraced house and they showed us 3 of their 5 children who were in bed, severely handicap. As we spoke to them we were able to testify that this is what they need in their life. This is what they were looking for. I will never forget that night.

Well I am doing good. I am happy. I love being a missionary.

Love all of you.
