Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for your email. I'm always glad to hear about what's going on at home. Things are going well here in Prishtina. Reading the Book of Mormon is going really well. I'm at about Alma 12. It's really awesome reading from the Book of Mormon with so much intensity. It is really awesome how it all is molding together. It's really awesome how many new insights I'm getting out of it. It's really interesting to see how many blessings the Lord promises us if we are obedient. Reading from the Book of Mormon has really helped me have a greater desire to share this message with others. It's such an awesome experience! That's too bad that Hap {Jacob's great-uncle} passed away this last week. That's also really sad that Abel {Lood, long-time member of the Princeton Ward} passed away. How old were they? I know that Able was getting pretty up there in age. That's too bad that the weather has been really cold. The weather here hasn't been too cold, but it's been really snowy. We've probably gotten about six inches of snow this weekend. It makes it a little difficult walking around the city. The roads aren't plowed as nice as they are in Minnesota, so roads are super slushy. Rachel, I hope that you have a good time at the Pinewood Derby. {She made a car to race in the open class.} I know that I always enjoyed the Pinewood Derby.

So this week was a good week. This week I had to go to Gjakova one last time on Saturday. I had to go to do the year-end audit, it was pretty fun. I got to talk quite a bit with Elder Hydrick and Elder DaBell (senior missionaries who conducted the audit). However, it was really nice to be in Prishtina for church. It was really nice to be able to see a lot of the same people that I knew from before. There were some armed forces personnel from local military bases that joined us for church. It was really awesome to be able to talk with them. We were able to find a new person this week named Kosmos. He was able to come to church as well. He is a university student studying computers and he's really intelligent. We've only been able to meet with him once, but he has a lot of potential and interest to learn more. When we talked with him on Sunday he had already read through the introduction and the testimonies in the beginning of the Book of Mormon. He's a really great guy, and I have a lot of hope for him. This upcoming week should be pretty exciting because we will be having a special missionary broadcast on Saturday and exchanges with the new Macedonian Zone Leaders. I'm pretty excited about that!

Thank you for all of your love and support! Ju dua shumë kalofshi bukur. Javë të mbarë!

Me dashuri,

Elder Watson
