Well, this is the final week of the first month of 2015, that's very very exciting, time seems to have picked up right where it left off. It felt a little bit like time slowed down and basically stopped during Christmas and stuff, even though the days seemed to go by too quickly, time just sort of slowed to a halt which is what it does every year and then it's over and you wonder where it went, it's kind of a paradox, but without fail time has picked up a again and we'll be ending January here pretty soon and then February will be beginning. It has really hit me lately that I'm coming home soon, and it's scary because I still feel like a young missionary and I still feel like I have tons of time. Even though I really only have 5 months, which is not a lot of time considering where we started, with 25 months left. I think it will be weird to come home but it will also feel natural, but for the next 5 months it doesn't matter, I just need to focus on what I'm doing now and live more in the moment, it's something that I have started doing, just living in the now and enjoying the little things and what's going on in my mission now, rather than always looking towards the future.Well this past week wasn't extremely eventful, we just worked like usual and we found some cool people, Elder Boam had an exchange with the zone leaders and because they didn't want to come twice they just had one with Elder Sharp and one with Elder Boam. Elder Boam was able to go to Bratislava and see how work is over there and see the city and stuff and he was pretty excited about that. He talked about it fora long time and I'm sure he will be talking about it a lot in his weekly letter home haha but it was fun. I had another exchange with Elder Brousseau and that went well, we did some good work and found some really cool people. Actually this past week, on Friday we talked to these 2 young guys and it was actually kind of a miracle we talked to them because we were chasing this one woman with a stroller down and we were on the other side of a river but there was an entrance to this park and we were hoping she was going to turn towards us so that we could contact her but then she never did and we just decided to talk to these 2 young guys instead and they stopped and they gave us their number and said we could meet. The best part though was that they were from Trstena, and I asked them if they knew and paneks and they said they knew a lot of them, so probably at least some of them are there still. Other than that we helped a man on his house that he's trying to prepare to sell and that was cool it actually looks pretty decent up stairs but the downstairs is a giant mess, but the man was extremely grateful for it. We also just taught our investigators this week and they're doing wonderful.
