Translation Squad

Things here are really good! Its weirdly warm right now.... its been like 7 degrees Celsius (mid 40's), its super foggy, and has been raining a lot. This whole transfer we have been sifting through the wheat and the tares and trying to find the people who are really prepared for the gospel. We have been getting more and more successful as we have just worked our tails off.

We have a couple that we met in Pizza Pizza (Canada's knock off of Little Caesars) about a month ago, that we have just recently been able to get in contact with. They are super cool!  When we first talked to them they wanted to volunteer in our church and help out in whatever way they could and they even offered to help us translate for the others who don't understand English. The funny thing is is that only one of them can translate... the other needs translation himself hahahahha, But that's ok because his wife can help and we have an investigator right now that is a legit translator so that would be awesome.

The couple is also finding out what religion is for themselves and our ward mission leader (Brother Andrei Ardelean from Romania) laid down the law on how they will never find out what religion is for themselves and what our services mean unless they read and pray about the Book of Mormon.
Elder Casdorph and I thought that was a little over the top but he responded very well and is like BFF's with bother Ardelean! And his wife is making so many friends with out us inviting the members to do so! We told them afterwards "if you have any questions just to feel free to ask us", and they said "ok thanks! but to be honest I have so many friends here I'll probably just ask one of them!"
They are so great and they love coming to church!!

This was just one of the major tender mercies we have seen from the Lord.

Love you all and hope you are all doing well :)
