Dear family and friends! These recent weeks have been amazing! The spirit of missionary work here in Kiev is amazing! I enjoy to be with these people every day!
This week we had an amazing goodbye-meeting with our Mission president and his family. It was great! They shared with us a lot of wisdom about how to righteously (according to God commandments) and successfully live your life. What I liked the most is that we should become agents and really give our best! The Klebingat family have been for us a great example and led this mission with excellence!

we had a reunion picture with our district from the MTC! 😀

we had a funny service idea, beat rugs for free
his week we dedicated to be a spiritual week. We want to focus on the blessings of doing missionary work, which is having the Holy Ghost (what is that?) with us. We do this by eating to every meal something spiritual too, for example; Liahona, Generel conference addresses, Mormon Messages, Bible Videos or other uplifting material. That is really cool and helpes a lot! You should try that out! 😉
Have a great week and enjoy living your life! You are the architects of your happiness!
and last, running today in the morning with my comp 🙂
Love, Elder Drewlow
Dear Family and Friends,
This has been an exciting week! We did a lot of cool stuff and enjoy the time here! That doesn’t mean, that we realaxed or mission is easy. In fact the mission is very hard, but we are here not for vacation or to take rest. Every day is filled with meetings with people who want to know more about the Book of Mormon, about the Church, we help people in gardens, cleaning up. We visit with church members to give them something to eat, spiritualy. Every day, we are here for the people here and that is beautiful. We are represents of Jesus Christ and we do what he commanded us to do:
“…wherefore, follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do.”
2 Nephi 31:12
Some pictures of this week:
Even though of our good time here, I got sick, a week ago (and yeah I’m already fine again 🙂 ). It was because of stress, weather change and somehow also a lack of eating healthy. Frequently prayers to my Heavenly Father helped me to overcome this time and to again see how blessed we are here. It is dangerous in times of discouragnes, demotivation, even tiredness to look down and complain about your circumstances. Looking up to our loving Heavenly Father and faithfully doing everything that I possibly can, helps me finally to get up and to smile again.
I just thought about how cool that is, that we can just turn to someone, when we are having a hard time! We don’t need a phone, nor money, or anything to get in contact with God. What we promise to people every day here is, that they can find true peace and happyness, just by faithfully turning to God.
Do you need someone to lift your heart, to give you comfort in a hard time? Call him up!
