Belgrade is sick. It is literally the coolest city ever. And it makes it even cooler when you have a cool district and a cool companion!
My new comp is elder Winfield. He is an Australian and he is really cool. Hes into sports and stuff so it helps to have stuff in common. Also, he adds another Aussie to my comp list which is totally serendipitous.
Whitewashing has been interesting, we have gotten lost a few times, taken buses the wrong way and ended up in the outskirts of our area. Good thing other elders are available to guide you over the phone when you need to get places haha. We dont have any investigators, naturally, because we are reopening an area that nobody has been in since I went to Zagreb. But we had a few good conversations with people. Also, we had dinner at a members house, the first time of my mission! Woot woot! They were so cool, its the brothers that went on mini missions to Rijeka with Elder Lowis while I had my mini. Theyre sick.
Branch conference was this week as well, which was cool. I got to see my old mini missionary comp, and meet a lot of the other members in Serbia. Also another cool thing happened. Cacak, a city about 3 hours south of Belgrade was opened. And its even cooler cuz thats where my friends the Maccabees have roots! It was approved to open and get 2 elders there because it has the highest attendance rate in europe, 89 percent which is 8 out of 9 members. The members there have been holding weekly meetings in one of their houses and watching the broadcasts from BG. They are all so solid.
Good stuff is happening, I love it here, my comp is legit and the work is movin forward. Have a good week everyone! Love you all!
