Monday July 1st

Jordan's e-mail to us this week started out with "This week was a great week, I am really pumped to be a missionary right now!" Sounds like he is enjoying himself! They were finally able to watch the missionary broadcast this weekend and he said they enjoyed it a lot! He said every morning him and Elder Kroff get up and recite their purpose in English and Bosnian. Their purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through Faith and Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end! Remember how their mission president challenged them to get to 10,000 church invites in June? Well they got 10,431! Jordan and Elder Kroff got 159 in one day! President Rowe was very happy with them and he will be in Tuzla on July 7th so Jordan is excited to see him.

Jordan and Elder Kroff had to spend 4 hours moving today because their year was up and apparently their landlord kinda sucks too. He likes his new apartment though and he really likes his new landlord, especially because she can speak English! Also, the Adriatic North mission is growing! Starting July 28th, Montenegro will be a part of Jordan's mission! Jord and Elder Kroff didn't have a ton of success this week because everyone they talk to says they are Muslim, even though they don't practice it. He also has a lot of the older generation telling him that they don't believe in God because God wouldn't have let the war kill thousands of people and destroy their cities. Another way Jordan and Elder Kroff have been working hard is by teaching beginner and advanced English classes every day! Jordan says he likes doing this a lot because it helps him with his Bosnian since that is what language he has to teach in.

Jordan was VERY happy to learn that the Jazz drafted Try Burke and 2 other very talented players on Thursday also. He is mad that when it looks like the Jazz will finally have a decent season, he won't be able to watch! But I will be sending him play by play details of every game :) Jordan asks that everyone please keep Jasmina in our prayers because she is still having a hard time with smoking but she really wants to be baptized still!
