June 4th

Hey Mom!
Haha I can't believe it's June either, summer is already here! It's so nice though haha, we were getting pretty tired of the cold. Pres wants us to try studying outside the apartment, and one of the best options is in the parks. Not so fun when it's freezing haha!
The Lip Sync was a success! Haha nice work, it sounds like you kinda put the team on your back this year! I expect videos at some point. I'm hoping that the snowman costume was more fun than all the preparation haha. Either way, feel better soon! Have Noah go and get your Diet Coke today haha!
It was way fun to see the DeMordaunts yesterday! They were awesome haha, super fun, chill family, and made sure to get pictures for all the moms, and they brought some Kraft Mac n Cheese and Reeses. What more could you want? They're actually gonna be hooking it up again today, they're taking Elder Kriser and I to the Jewish History Museum and then out for lunch. Haha we're super excited, they're awesome!
Our week was pretty sweet. We were able to have a good bit of meetings with a lot of investigators. It's pretty crazy how busy we've been lately, it's almost hard to keep track of everyone. But it's been great, and our lessons have been sweet. We're working with one guy, trying to help him get a job. He's just a really humble dude, but he's had a lot of problems with work ever since he moved to Poland. This week we got the members involved, and they just took over! It's sweet, they just took him right in. Taking fellowshipping to the max haha.
Going back to what I said earlier about studying outside, basically the idea is to be seen by as many people as possible, as often as possible. We're working on getting our name out there, and we're specifically focusing on young people. Lately we've spent a ton of time on the Warsaw University campus. It's been pretty sweet, we've been talking to a ton of people that are just chill. Usually when we're out doing regular finding, we stop people on the street, and they want you to get to the point really quick. Lately we've basically just been chatting with people, and they get to know us and the Church, but we also get to know them. It's weird, cause most of them are about my age, and if we weren't missionaries, we could honestly be hanging out with some of these people. Just last week there was this girl playing the ukulele on the street and we sat down and talked for a while. Since she was playing the uke, it got a ton of people's attention, and we talked to a bunch of people that came over to listen. Same thing happened on Saturday, a guy was singing in front of the uni, and we just handed out flyers for our English class. A lot of people stuck around for a while, and we were able to have some cool conversations (plus we basically got a free concert, the guy was good haha).
Speaking of concerts, we are in for a treat this week! The Piano Guys are gonna be in Warsaw tomorrow, and Elder Kriser got us VIP tickets through family connections. President Turek is gonna be there too, and we even got to invite some investigators. It's honestly awesome, I can't believe we got so lucky! We're going to a concert with our Mission President!
This week Elder Kriser and I got started on a thing called the Bring Sally Up pushup challenge. We're doing it twice a day. It's pretty brutal, you should have the boys try it haha!
That's pretty much all I got this week, love you Mom! Once again, feel better soon!
