The Latest from Elder Paul : )

Dear John,
Wow, this week has been totally crazy and this next week will be even more so. We did SYL (speak your language) all day on saturday and all day yesterday. Im starting to really get a good grasp on the language and I'm loving it. I want to leave the MTC right NOW! only about four more weeks left...in less than a month i will be on my way to the Motherland. Apparently Elder Uchdorf was hanging out at the MTC yesterday and elder Ablett and i just barely missed him. There are two new districts in our zone and the new native russian district just came in today...so sundays from now on are not going to be nearly as small. I taught a lesson for district meeting last sunday...it was about finding people to teach, but i put a big emphasis on shepherding.
The more I learn and read the scriptures, and the more i find out about Russian culture, the more excited i am to go to Moscow and to be a shepherd.
Thanks for all of your love and support,
Elder Paul
