Staying in Krivoy Rog, Hiking and "English Overtime"...

We just went through transfers again and I am still going to be in Krivoy Rog. I've been here through two transfers and I'll be hitting my third here. I'm super excited to be staying in Krivoy Rog. It's an awesome place, with some awesome people. Just about all of the missionaries will be staying here, except for a few. I'm excited to continue to work with Elder Houghton. Our different skills and talents compliment each other and we work really well together. We have been going on a lot of adventures with our investigators and teaching them while on these ventures, it's been fantastic. One of those ventures we were invited to go out on a hike with a wonderful family and we found some giant cliffs. We are now teaching the family. That’s just an example of some of the fun we have been having. 

 Our finding this week has been well. With the weather a bit warmer and with us being a bit more visible due to the lack of suit jackets, people have been giving us some weird looks. Elder Houghton and I have been using this to our advantage. When someone stares at us, we smile and ask them how they are doing. I won't say it works with everyone, because it doesn't, but it has worked a few times and we have made some new friends and have some new appointments. 

Our new investigators this week have a some potential and one actually came to church. So things are going well. We have implemented a new little thing to help finding. It's called "English overtime". It is after our sports night and we go to McDonalds since it's one of the most popular parts of the city and we just speak in English. We missionaries change back into our white shirts (since we want to show we're normal people). We did this last week and got a lot of new contacts from people who just saw that we were having a good time. 

 I don't have a lot of words this blog, but I can compensate with pictures.

Love you guys!
-Elder Cody J.
