How is UTAH? Aw have fun camping and seeing everyone and tell everyone hi and I love you all etc. <3  Oh as you saw, I have a black (PURPLE) eye.. from playing basketball with some little 8-yo djalls (two Ls not one.. google translate both lol) at a branch picnic. It was so fun though hah worth it. Actually I had no idea how bad it was so I did some handstands later oops pretty sure no one believes me that my dad's a doctor. Also got stuck in an elevator for 20 min lol! but I'll write more later! tung tung talk more later ju duam!!

Photo taken just after Madi got her black eye, sent from the Hydricks (missionary couple in Madi's branch)
so yeah this happened.. let's just say I'm not too popular among the Muslims around here. jk this was from playing basketball w/ some little street boys at a branch picnic at the park on Saturday. WAYYYY worse in person (I also have a nice scar on my nose from something else right) 
 like I said, it looks nowhere near as bad (scary/disturbing) in pics! kinda like heavy makeup @ a distance lol 
 trying out my new cam hahah.
btw I have LOTS of pics for you this wk :) 

oops don't have much time.. today had an amazing p-day at the beautiful Liqeni batllava, it was bukur fare! but this past week was FILLED with incredible lessons and exhausting walks seeing so much more of this sweet city and all sorts of experiences and conversations and emotions haha and basically never a dull moment out on the mish! I LOVE the people here, the branch/ members of course and also the friendly and sincere friends I've made (who will get baptized one day... plantin' seeds for the time being), and I have gained so much respect for Islam since living here. I LOVE the Book of Mormon, I enjoyed reading through Moroni 7 again, such a Kapitulli i bukur and I've been studying the crazy Old Testament too, fun to re-read those classic bible stories, but get so much more out of them this time around.
Oh and listening to "Lord, I would follow thee" I was really touched by the lyrics. Go listen to it. :)

got stuck in an elevator for 20 min... w/ the elders bc they came with to teach about priesthood.... 

JU DUAM!!! Kaloni bukur fare ne jutah! enjoy hiking and swimming and camping and cousins and bej te fala secili aty! <3 and GEZUAR DITELINDJEN Isypoo.. are you feelin' 22? ;)

love you guys! Thanks for the incredible examples you all are. Flasim javen tjeter, tung tung!!
