don't know what I disbelieve more, that their was a fire next door, or that you guys went to the knew Superman movie without me. But really that is crazy. I hope nobody got hurt or anything. Was it like huge? Are their pictures of the reckage? Crazy buisness.
We had some cool experiences this week. Mirjana, the gypsy who has been taught by missionaries for like 9 years and told us in our first meeting that she would never ever be baptised. We gave her some chapters to read, left her with a prayer, came back a few days later and decided to give her a baptismal calender. Just in case she changed her mind. And guess what? She did, before we even said it she asked if she would be able to be baptised on one of those days. It was pretty awesome, neither of us knew what to say we were so surprised. So now its just seeing if she decides to keep this committment, because she's really awesome. Her big issue is she wants to be baptised with her husband, not without him, and he isn't at all interested. So...we'll find a way around that little problem....
We had another cool experience with the 'Jackson' name. So like always people stop us and know that we are American because of my name. But this time we were getting on a bus, they stopped us asked if I was american, I said yes. They all started freaking out saying they love America, and they asked me to smile. Which I very awkwardly did, and all of them go 'OH! So American', so apparently not only my name, but also my smile is all American. And then they gave us some cake, it was really nice. People from Algeria, and Morroco, and the sorts just love us. It's cute.
And! I actually got told I was progressing on my French, so whew! Apparently it is happening, because no lie, it really doesn't feel like i'm progressing a whole lot of the time.
