In my first week, I gave out a book of Mormon to a Greek for the first time in Greece for me. It was quite the event. I labored here for 4 months and didn't get to do that much, then in my first day of knocking, I get to give one out. Then this week we visited a less active and invited her to church. She came and to our surprise the other elders had been visiting her every week and committing her to come and she didn't. But we visit her once and she comes. We were really excited to see her in Church. It's been a good week.
This week has meant lots of changes for me. I am now back in Athens. I am in the area called Halandri. Its in the north. It was formerly closed for a few months and that has made my life rather difficult. We are starting from scratch. We don't know where anything is and we have to figure out something so we don't get lost. My new companion is 6 months out. He is from England as well. His name is Elder Deeley. Together we have the most e's in our names of any companionship. He is really cool. We have spent most of the day cleaning our new apartment. It was a mess from the last elders leaving in a hurry. Otherwise my week was really good. We finished strong but I miss Pafos. I gave a presentation on America for family night. It was fun.
