Borders.... Trains.... and sub machine guns
Well my computer crashed and so i have pretty much lost all will to re write everything that i had on here before. so sorry. But i will give you somethin to read i guess.
Well the weather has finally cleared up and im pretty stoaked about it cause for the last 2 months it has been nothing but crap weather every single day. But yesterday was amazing and we put some good miles on my ecco's. So ya life is good as of yesterday haha, but oh well. We had zone conference last week in krasnodar that was awesome cause Elder Lawrence from the area Presidency was there and he gave me an interview. haha he was sweet and he gave some bomb talks. And his wife was probably better than him haha, she talked about the 12 tribes of israel. And not going to lie i dont think i have ever taken so many notes in my life! The lesson was great. But I talked to Elder Lawrence for a while and he said he knows John's Dad pretty well and i guess they sit next to each other during conference and stuff. So i told him to say hi for me haha, im sure they get lots of hi's from people all around the world but oh well. And he also said he will be giving the opening prayer at Priesthood session so be on the look out for him. he is a stud. So all of that was pretty fun.
oh ya thank you grandma and grandpa wright for the package :) it was a christmas package full of socks and underwear :) if you guys wanted to know hahah :) thanks :)
Other than that we had a Visa trip. Which sucked. One of the elders from krasnodar bought our train tickets to Rostov and he pulled a dumb tard move and bought us 3rd class train tickets. Which the 3rd class consist of wooden benches and heaters that are so hot they will start a fire if you put your bag on it. So we had a 4 hour train ride from hell. And that is exactly what it was haha but it was alright, we just made fun of him for buying the wrong tickets haha he felt pretty bad but we were just teasing him. But then the next morning we had our visa trip across the border, i smuggled ella's flat stanley across the border and took a pic in ukraine for her. Me and the other elders were talking about it and we are pretty sure ella is going to have the coolest flat stanley project in her whole class. Cause she whent to Russia/and ukraine. Pretty bomb eh? haha ill attach some pics for her, anyways but we had a good time and nothing whent too horribly wrong. we were detained for about an hour and a half on the border freezing my butt off. But they ended up letting us go with nothing wrong. Russian Police suck. they were just trying to be jerks. ya then we got to the ukrainian border and they wouldnt let us through. so i had to get in an argument with the border police. they kept telling they wouldnt let us in just because they didnt like us. so we threatened them with a phone call from the embassy. and finally after some name calling the border controll boss guy came over and he told the border officers where to shove it and we got through. I dont know why but borders and Elder Wright dont mix very well. Oh well.
Well then finally we got back to sochi and we had our church meetings and i had a talk about the light of christ which is my favorite subject so that was pretty easy and after sacrament some of the members came and asked me for all of my refferences. And mom yes i did get a new BOM in russian. they put out a new translation which is amazingly better haha. the old one had so many mistakes it was rediculous. anyways so now its all better and i have a new triple combo bom, pearl of great price and D and C. so ya its pretty bomb and i used it on sacrament and eveyone was blown away with the new translation. It has changed so much that we have to change the sacrament prayers. so ya thats how big the new translation is haha. but its better. But anyways nothing too exciting has been going. other than the drunk lady on the street yesterday. she came up asking us weird questions and finally i was getting sick of her and she stuck her hand out to me and said give me some money! so i stuck out my hand and said no, you give me some money haha. :) it was pretty funny then she slappend my hand back and told me some naughty words haha. then i asked her if she had been drinking and she nodded. and i asked her if it was vodka or whiskey. and she laughed and said it was vodka and that whiskey is for americans ahha. i laughed pretty good. But that was all the funny stuff that happened. ill attach some sick pics of the sunset and flat stanley for you guys to see. but i better go. i love you all
Dont Die please :)
