Hello all, what another great week that we had in Uzhhorod! I will start by saying that the weeks are just flying bye, I don't know how they pass so quickly! This week was so great!On Monday, after internet, my worst fear came to pass... not really! But my uncles will appreciate this story. So, like people know, if you have ever eaten steak with me, I don't usually cut my own meat, I am a baby and I have people do it for me, well Monday we had a District lunch and since I can't read the menu, neither can Sister Garrett, the Elders ordered for us. We got steak, they totally laughed and watched me struggle to try to cut my own food, in my defense it was a butter knife I was using. I just thought I would share since everyone made fun of me at home, telling me that I would go on a date one day and make a fool of myself, don't worry it wasn't a date, I was just with 4 Elders. No big deal.
Oh, and this week the lightbulb in our kitchen was taken care of, thank you to the Elders. We didn't get time on Monday, so we figured, hey we will just wait until next Monday. They found out and went and bought us a lightbulb. Poor Sister Garrett got to climb up onto the counter to put it in. Let there be light!This week we did a lot of contacting around trying to get some new investigators. Right now we are only teaching S, which is getting harder and harder. She still has that guy living at the house, that is the only thing that is keeping her from being able to be baptized. Hopefully soon we will get a breakthrough with her. She is just so wonderful, I want her to have the blessings that come from baptism in her life. I just love that lady, our little Ukrainian Mom. She asked me the other day if I was sick because I have lost weight. She told me that if I keep losing weight I am going to go home and my mom is going to wonder why no one fed me and loved me when I was in Ukraine. She is just the best.
This whole week was just great! No super crazy adventures, but it was so fun! I just love it here!
We are truely seeing miracles here! Heavenly Father loves his children!Until next time!
Because of the letter I received last week from the Mission President I am going to have to start blocking out the names of those Karissa writes about and will can not post pictures of anyone from Ukraine, so I will just post pictures that have Karissa in them, which is not very many.
Apparently, my name Karissa has to Klarissa in Ukrainian because I guess in the Russian version of Ponoccio? I don't know it that is spelled right, that is the name of this evil monster type thing! I have 4 people tell me that this week when I tell them my name is Klarissa in Ukrainian and Karissa in english... so I am stickin to Klarissa only! and P.S. I changed my nametag in Ukrainian...I am not сестра шанесі, it is the more correct way to spell it because of the way that we pronounce it.
