Week 12: Some Graveyards and Burnt Pancakes

So, this one's gonna be pretty short, folks. Sorry about that.

Tuesday was All Saints' Day, and so we went to visit some graveyards and see all the flowers and candles people had put out by graves. Most of the graves here are really big family graves written in plenty of different languages like Hungarian, German, or Hebrew. It was cool seeing how much people respect their deceased.

At some point this week we made American pancakes. They were pretty good, except for the fact that most of them were overdone. The first one was solid black on one side. Elder Jex was the one to turn on the stove, and I was the one to actually cook them, and I had no idea how high he'd turned up the stove. The pancake was way past overdone by the first time I even thought to check it =P We threw that one out.

Yesterday in church I of course bore my testimony in sloppy Serbian, and taught Sunday School with Elder Jex in more of my sloppy Serbian. Other than that, it was a pretty regular week. Sorry for how short this email is.

Your homework is to read Ephesians 6. It's one of the chapters that talks about the whole armor of God. Verse 19 is one that sticks out to me a lot right now. We each need to open our mouth and share the gospel with those around us, no matter how scary it is.

Have a good week!
