Air Conditioning

is a blessing from heaven.

It has gotten hotter, but luckily it hasn’t been nearly as bad as last summer was (so I’ve heard). I have enjoyed sitting inside a nice air conditioned room all day rather than roasting outside. Although my tan is going away already. But I don’t have any girls to impress, so it’s probably a good thing. I’m trying to keep the girls off me, and I’ve already had a girl try to seduce me once and that was enough.

So basically, not a whole lot happened this week. I did lots of boring office things. We wanted to try to get out of the office more, but there was a mission wide youth conference, so everyone who could answer the phone was at that.

This weekend was district conference. And it will be the last one for a while. They dissolved the Dnepr district, so now every branch in our mission is just directly under the mission presidency. The church grew really quickly when it first opened, but it spread out really fast and a lot of people fell away and now there are numbers, but not activity rates to match. It will be great to have all of the district leadership able to strengthen the branches. two of the three branch presidencies were organized as well. So the branch I’m serving in has a new branch president, I am very excited. The old branch president (who, fyi, was interviewed on that Faith Reborn special about Ukraine…the very last people), moved to Kyiv a while ago, but they haven’t been sure what was going to happen with the district, so they didn’t know who was available to be called. In short, President Parhomenko had been coming back every weekend from Kyiv just for church and then going back to be at work on mondays. It was really hard for him. The district president is now the 2nd counselor in the mission presidency.

That was basically the only exciting thing that happened. We went to Puzata Hata (pot-bellied cottage), a restaurant with Ukrainian food after district conference on Saturday with a bunch of missionaries. It was really fun, and the food is amazing.

I hope you are all having a good week!
