First, we spent the day with a guy from our advanced class, Bozina. He is a social worker and he informed us a while back about a charity that was underfunded and needed donations so on Thursday morning we spent the time with him buying hygiene items to give to the charity. It was a group that helps mentally retarded kids in the area, which is super cool because people here pretty much move out of the city into the boondocks if they have any children with disabilities because they don't want them seen. Its pathetic. Anyway, we just loaded up and it was great! We took them over and the guy there was super chill. Then, we spent the rest of the day with Bozina that we were in Podgorica. We had lunch and we got him to say the prayer on the food which was super tight! After lunch we had to get ready to go. My companion gave me a euro cut because my hair was getting long on the sides and then we jumped on a plane to Belgrade.
In Belgrade, we stayed at the ZL's apartment. Lowis and the greenie went to the other Belgrade elders apartment and the Novi Sad elders came with us as well. We had to get up and leave around four in the morning to make the drive to Zagreb and be there by 9. So we decided that was going to be really annoying and instead wanted to stay up till then. Elder Fisher, one of the Novi Sad elders, has a greenie and the greenie went right to bed around 11:30ish. Then me, him, Hixon, and the ZL's Jacobson and Neilsen stayed up till we had to go. It wasn't even bad yet! But then we started falling asleep on the drive so pretty much we all just yelled and shook each other to stay awake. It was awesome. Also we didn't have food in this time so we stopped at a gas station and I got a snickers! But then we got to conference and it was super rough staying up during it but we managed it. It was definitely a bonding moment between us 5, and now we're pretty much the furious 5. But yeah 32 hours no sleep, a 2 hour nap, then the rest of the day! I crashed so hard that night and felt amazing the next day. So yeah that's the adventure of the week I'm still here for now!
Everyone have a merry Christmas it's a great time of year, even when people think that Christmas is in January! Live it up have a great week!
