Hello! I'm Elder Travis Skene. This is a blog created mainly from my letters while I'm on my mission for Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (The Mormon Church). I was called to serve in the Russia Rostov-Na-Donu Mission. This is so you can stay updated with what I'm doing.
I'll likely be gone from November 2011 to November 2013.
My mother and/or sister will manage this blog for me, if you want to contact me and don't know how you can send my mother an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey this is gonna be short but some cool stuff happened this week, an
answer to our prayers and fasts that have gone on for a few weeks, our
investigator who seemed to have vanished
without a trace a week or two before the baptism came to Church and
stayed for all the meetings! It turns out that what we thought was the
case, an unexpected problem occurred, he had been in the hospital for
some issues with his heart, and now he has to get heart surgery in a
couple of days and will be returning to Rostov after it in probably
about a month, and then we will baptism him assuming all goes as
planned. He came from the hospital just to come to Church and then went
right back, and many of the members here were very welcoming to him and
they based their lessons around helping him as much as they could as he
willingly read and participated with everything, it went pretty well. He
will probably go up to Moscow or another city up in the North for the
operation, and we will try to keep in contact with him, and before we
left we gave him a blessing with Branch President in his office, and it
went well. Other than that there isn't a lot to report this week, we
have just been working and have gotten a couple appointments and
contacts through the area book, but they haven't usually happened due to
a cancellation at the last minute. What can you do though, just your
best to try to keep working.
Thanks for everything, you guys have a great week and stay safe! I love you!
