This week was great! We're getting ready for transfers, which means that one or more of us could be leaving Khabarovsk sometime soon. Kind of crazy! But we've been working hard to make sure everything's ready to go if some of us leave.
Eugene and Denis are doing amazing! They've both had their priesthood worthiness interviews and they'll be getting the priesthood this coming Sunday! Elder Gee is currently thinking about calling them to be sunday school teachers, which I think would be awesome for them. We're all still thinking and praying about it, but I'll let you know when we know! Also Eugene gave an AMAZING talk this sunday. He already has an incredible knowledge of the gospel and studies all the time on his own. We also were able to give a member named Valeri the priesthood this last week! He was baptized a while ago, but went inactive soon after baptism. He's started becoming active these last few months, though, and we're super excited to have him! He's very smart and speaks incredible English. He helps us a lot with the language and he's all around an awesome guy. We've had some amazing progress with our priesthood these last few months, and we're excited to keep working and building up a strong priesthood group here in Khabarovsk!
We also had Thanksgiving this week! It was a blast. We searched everywhere for a full turkey, but no dice. It's ok, though! taking a cue from Christmas Story, we found a full-on duck in a supermarket here, and used that instead! It was AMAZING. Duck is vastly underrated, in my opinion. We also made a big bowl of mashed potatoes, and the sisters made a cake. It wasn't quite up to American standards but we all had a ton of fun and the food was great!
We're not learning about transfers until tomorrow, so I'll let everyone know if I'm staying or going next week.
Have a great week! Love you all!
Elder Lawrence
