Good morning everyone :)
I am currently sitting on the beautiful island of Bornhom!! Two days ago I hopped on a plane all by myself (such a big boy, right) and flew over here. I will be here for the next two days preparing and setting up for Folkemødet (an annual festival held here on the island) and then when the festival begins I will be playing with a band that I have put together to represent and bring attention to the church! I absolutely love it here! It's a beautiful place... it almost feels like a vacation getaway, although we're working as hard as ever to make sure it all goes well. We're expecting over 60,000 people to be there, so this could be a great opportunity for us. The church will also be holding a debate event on Thursday at which I have been asked to speak in front of thousands of politicians and press. The pressure is on!!
Yesterday I attended the branch here on the island. I spoke in sacrament meeting and the attendance was huge!! Tons of vacationers from America and what not. Really cool.
This last week before I got here was amazing though. Thursday was one of the coolest days of my mission! F's* girlfriend wanted to start taking the lessons, but she only speaks Spanish, Russian and Armenian..... well what do you know, my little brother speaks Armenian!! So we skyped in Ethan on the laptop and we were able to teach the first lesson together! (although he did most of the talking) It was just so cool! Two Elder Bradshaw’s teaching together. She loved the lesson and came to church again this Sunday. The Spirit was so strong and it was just so awesome to watch Elder Bradshaw teaching in Armenian! He's so good!
Anyway, I have to get going. Tons to do. Next week is my last email... weird.
I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
