So I'm finally recovered from this ridiculously inhibiting sickness, and I'm now back in action. Hooray! I was a little sad to lose the beard, though. Thanks for thinking about me as you played that song :) . We didn't actually do it, I guess they just did it last week for Ward Conference while I was sick. Ah well, it's the thought that counts, right?
Stake conference was pretty interesting--I even got to translate for it! Elder Sindylek and I tag-teamed it, and I'm actually starting to enjoy translating. It was set up like this: all the Slovaks had earpieces, and then the translator had a microphone to speak into as the English people were giving their talks. Everyone who had an earpiece heard whatever was said into the microphone. It was a neat thing to be a part of. I also rode the bus there with the Slovaks, which was fun. They would speak in a mix of Slovak and Roma, which I'm beginning to understand pretty well. They like to joke around with each other a lot, and I even got some of the jokes they made in Roma. I was so proud to sit with them all during stake conference and represent the Sheffield 4 branch. I think it opened a lot of members' eyes to how big it actually is, and we only had a portion of the branch there. I think the Slovaks liked it a lot as well, and I think they now have seen that this church is here in Sheffield more than they thought, too. The talks were all very good, and everyone I talked to said they had a positive experience there. A few of our investigators were able to attend, as well, which made me really happy. They all enjoyed it, too.
There's not a whole lot to tell about this week thanks to the chicken pox that I've been stuck with, but the one day that I had something to tell about was pretty great. Thanks for the letters you've sent, I really enjoyed all of them. I'm glad you enjoyed my letter to all of you as well :) . Talk to you next week, and I love you lots!
Z mojho srdca,
