1. We are now a Dugtrio! I wonder if it had separate personalities...

Don't Forget to Chew Your Fufu

Hi everyone! How are you all doing?? 
I'm really sorry I haven't been writing much, please keep our family in your prayers. For this last week, Siostra Lerch and I have been joined by Siostra Allowitz because her companion needed to leave early for school. We're doing well and have 3 new investigators: Vlad, Ewa, and Rafał. On Saturday, we had the Sisters' conference with women from Łódź, Lublin, and both branches from Warsaw! We had to get up early and hurry to get to the mission home on time, it was a blast! Friday, we went to Komorów to visit Dennis with the Elders and had some time, so we heart-attacked the Tokarzes and tracted. During that time, we met Christopher who is married and is into yoga. We love Dennis!! He taught us how to make fufu, it's so good! 

Sorry, we've run out of time, but have a great week!!

Conference with Sister Lerch and the Retallicks. Sorry to say I've forgotten my camera, but I will post more next week!

General Conference!!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay, we were sick, but are doing much better! Please pray for Sister Lerch though, she is still recovering. 

Update from last week: Sunday were able to go out o Komorów which is a pretty little town outside of Warsaw to see the Tokarz family. It was an hour and a half train ride (the WKD station is my favourite by far!) and when we got there, we had no idea which direction to go because we couldn't find a map specifically for that town, but we looked around the station and found a display map of the city. After writing down the directions to the Tokarzs' house, we took ourselves a scenic walk. It was long, but pretty. We had been calling all day to confirm our arrival, but no one would answer. We were really confused because we'd been invited out, but after praying, it just made more sense to leave our bag of of goodies just inside the gate. We had brought some plastic eggs with candy inside, a copy of Beowulf for one of the sons and nail polish along with a note and schedule for the upcoming General Conference. We then took our journey back into Warsaw knowing that everything would be okay, and later in the night, we got a call from Sister Tokarz thanking us for the gifts! It turned out that she wasn't home when we came, but the family was just so grateful that someone thought of them on Easter! 
The rest of the week was spent at the doctors' because Sister Lerch has an ear infection, she couldn't sleep because it hurt so bad, but the Elders once again pulled through for us for blessings and helping us with our groceries. I am so grateful for our district! Please pray for her recovery!

This weekend has been a blessing to the end of a hard week, because we've been stuck inside, but we were able to get our extra studies done! 

How was Easter? Have you all been able to watch conference? Sister Lerch and I went to the Wolska chapel to watch it as a zone and we ended up meeting some friends there as well! What a happy reunion! So far, my favourite talks were by Neil A.Andersen (about kids), Mervyn B. Arnold (Less-actives), Bonnie L. Oscarson (Families), D. Todd Christofferson (Fathers), and Dieter F. Uchtdorf (Monuments of Hope/The Lost). I love hearing from our prophets and apostles! You know, it is just astounding to me how much G-d knows. He knows it all, from the beginning to the end, and moreso because He understands what it means that there is no beginning and no end! He knows everything, and most of all, he knows what that specific person we are trying to help needs. I love you all so much!! 

Romans 8:28- " And we know that all things work together for good to them that love G-d, to them who are called according to his purpose."

'till next time,
