This week we had our Halloween party at the branch. It was really fun and a lot of non members showed up! We carved apples and played the Oreo minute to win it game, relay race of wrapping people in toilet paper like a mummy and the game where you tie a balloon to your leg and try to pop others without getting yours popped and the donut on a string game (well actually bagel because we're in Russia) and bobbing for apples. The took it over and did a great job.
A lot of miracles this week! This man was outside on the street passing the church and for some reason just came in and we taught him a lesson and it was way good and he said after the lesson "maybe God sent me", he doesn't know how right he is. Another one was we had forgotten a book that we needed for a lesson at the church so last night we went there to grab it and one of the members in Angarsk was there with his friend teaching him about the gospel, we got there and taught him the first lesson. If we didn't forget that book we would have never been there to teach Mark's friend. Oh and Nikolai is going to get baptized this Saturday!
Me and Elder Lyman have been speaking only Russian from 1-9 everyday. It's hard and requires a whole lot of hand actions but I think it is helping my Russian improve a lot. And bought a muffin pan! English practice wasn't as good this weekly as the past weeks because there weren't as many people there as there were missionaries and we had the question of the day "how do you deal with your problems" we thought people were going to say exercise or listening to music or something and we were going to turn it into how we can turn to God and he will help us but people started telling us about their problems and were basically venting haha but it was good!
We were walking and saw a Panda bear on the side of a building and it was wearing a Chinese chef hat and was cooking Chinese food so of course I thought it was panda express but when i went and checked it out I was deeply disappointed when it was only a sushi place. A bird landed on my shoulder as I said in the picture I sent you! We didn't even have any food and all the pigeons surrounded us. They are everywhere in Angarsk.
I am going to buy my coat today! I love all of you!
