A GREAT week!

First off about the mishhhh, its going great over here; brussels is
the promised land; truly the place of milk and honey; i love it here.
Me and my comp had the best numbers in the zone this week; nooot
bragging ha just sayin things are going well.  we have been meeting
alot with Collette (black lady from congo i think; but has lived in
belgium most her life) and her daughter Gracia; and everytime we go
over to give them a lesson they invite their whoooole family; they are
all super cool; kids and sisters and grandchildren all that, its too
bad that all of them besides collette and gracia are not in our area
but we pass them on to the other elders, a couple lessons ago we got
talking about baptism and priesthood, when i started talking about
priesthood and how its necessary for baptism i got a little choked up,
its been a while since ive felt like that, how we can literally trace
our priesthood straight back to Jesus Christ, very legit.  So there
were about 12 africans and me and my comp in this tiny room, juuust
too much fun; its great stuff.  a week ago me and elder D prayed to
know what date would be good for a baptismal date for them; we both
felt it should be March 3

So the next time we met with them we invited them to be baptized on
march 3, Gracia was pumped and wanted to, she would get baptized
tomorrow if she could; loves the church the gospel and wants to serve
a mission, but collette was like "can we pray and get our own
response?" so we said yes of course; but i was thinking; oh geeze shes
gonna pick some date like 6 months down the road and keep putting it
off, but at church yesterday after amis de l'├ęglise class she came up
to me and said that Prayer is real and she will be baptized this
weekend; wooow how cool; so we have two baptisms coming up this
weekend and hopefully their whole extended family will follow; they
always come and love the lessons so they i think they will. But its
going to be a hard week; satan will be working double time; so we will
see them as often as possible

Some of my favorite people on the mission are the senior missionaries,
no lies haha we have a senior couple missionary companionship and a
German sister senior missionary companionship in our ward, i  love to
talk with the german sisters; they just crack me up? theyre pretttttty
old but they do tons of great stuff

food is great; Elder D makes us Pasta alot; which is great and
naturally he is very good at it; I make AMERICAN food; potatoes; beef;
lots of eggs, butter; lardons and cheese all beautifully mixed into
one pan then covered in ketchup afterwards, ha but he loves it and i
love his food so its all good in the hood

a couple days ago in the metro there was an accordian player; playing
for money; (theres tons; always romanian or bulgarian) i think he
could just tell i was american so he started looked at me and started
playing Oh say can you see; yeah your not supposed to give them money
usually but i just haaaaaaaaaaad to give him a tip for that

Ive been reading up on the apostasy so i can DESTROY catholics, and i
had all my weapons ready to absolutely flatten all their false hopes;
but then i decided thats not cool haha i just feel bad for them (but
not for muslims or Jehovahs witnesses) theyre looking for the truth so
i cant complain; even if they freak out about it, its all good; just
invite and move on

what else is schlobus up to?

and thankyou for everything else; much love, tell mariah to email me back

"red eyes red eyes red eyes; i didnt expect to see you so... spoon!--Jeffrey!!"
