Cagrilanlar Coktur, ama Secilenler Azdir
Many are Called, Few are Chosen
* E. Russell was dropped off at the mission home today, he's headed home tomorrow morning, so it's just E. Heck and E. Muncy in Florya "it was pretty rough saying good-bye to him, E. Havens, and E. Yazzie. I grew pretty close to them and hope to see them after my mission."
*A very interesting Saturday--it was the night of a pool party and the friend has been a friend for over two years and the party dates have changed a lot, and he didn't show up to the party right before the ship out to Germany last year. So, 30 minutes before this pool party was to begin, he hadn't shown up and E.Havens was crushed- he's been helping him the whole time he's been in Turkey. So, by a miracle, some of the volunteers were able to remember where he goes to think when he's down. Five of the volunteers went to look for him and he was there! He came back with the volunteers and the pool party happened! Back at the pool while all of this was happening, President Davis explained what was happening and bore his testimony. E. Muncy and E.Mattress were put on the spot to talk to the congregation and talk to and teach them, "on the spot, no warning, no prep. It was a very special night and a testimony builder."
*Exchanges in Izmir went really well--great to work with E. Johnson! "It was suuuuper hot, but I love Izmir!" This Thursday is the 18 month mark!
*Thanks for all of the love and support.
