Letter #15: Funny story of the week

Mirëdita Familje ime!!!!
How are you doing my loves?? Ahhhh.. I have missed all so much this week and I hope all is going oh so well with all of the crazy things going on at home! How is football going boys?? Lacrosse? I bet you are tearing it up!! Yeah. and speaking of tearing it up, me and Motra Hoover tore it up this week in Kosovo baby! We got 6 new investigators! WOOP WOOP! Yeah it has been a pretty exciting week! We have met all of our goals and surpassed some even! The Lord blesses you when you are obedient! That is a great lesson that I have come to learn more and more each week.

Let me tell ya a little bit about my week this week.. Oh what a stellar week it was! This week we had the amazing opportunity to go to Albania for our Mission Conference with the whole mission!!! Ahhh.. it was so much fun! After waking up at 3 in the morning and taking a 4 hour bus ride to Albania, we made it and had such a good time! The crazy thing is, when you think of a general mission conference, you would picture around maybe 100 missionaries, 200 or maybe even more! haha.. yeah, not mine! My mission, although it covers 4 countries now, only has 48 missionaries, 8 of us being sister missionaries! CRAZY OR WHAT?? Yeah.. I was trippin too! We are definitely the minority here, but it makes our responsibility that much greater! The conference was rad. President Ford, our mission president is the BOMB DOT COM!!!! Seriously. He is the best ever. He is from England so he has the coolest accent! I could listen to him and his wife for dayssss. Anyways, it was so awesome to be all together with everyone, fighting for the same cause of righteousness and bringing people to Christ. What a great calling we have here! 

Funny story of the week:
Me and Motra Hoover were street contacting and we said hello to this Muslim lady, all decked out in her head dress, long skirt, the whole bit, and she comes up to us, in what seemed to be a harmless matter, and started asking how we knew Jesus Christ was the Son of God. We testified that we knew these things from the Power of the Holy Ghost and SHE WENT OFFFFF!!! hahaha. I have never been so traumatized in my whole life. She was yelling her head off saying, "You are a liar! Muhammed was the last Prophet on the Earth and Jesus Christ is not the Son of God!!! When we meet again in the next life you will see that these things are false!!! BLAH BLAH BLAH... ahhhh. how sad I felt for this woman. She just didn't know a thing and is so completely confused. The people here are so brainwashed and are so ignorant of the truth. If only they knew that the traditions of their fathers were false! I will see that woman again in the next life and have to say.. Welp, I told ya so! haha. ahhh.. I am terrible. I will go repent right now. 
This is the beautiful Kosovan Sky!

Another highlight from the week. We street contacting this woman named Enime and met with her the following day with her and her daughter Vlera as well! And can I just say.. The Lord has completely prepared these two! They were asking so many wonderful questions and they told us that they would be baptized when they came to know that these things are true! Without hesitation they accepted the invitation and they asked US, "When can we meet next? Do you have a church service we can attend?" Oh yeah baby! Talk about a miracle! It was really special. We are meeting with them again tomorrow and I can't wait to see what things lie ahead for them! 

So I got an e-mail from Breea in France, and it turns out that she is teaching a family that is from KOSOVO!!!! Small world or what? I was dying! So Bree asked me to write up my testimony for them so the mother that doesn't speak a lick of English or French could feel the Spirit through my words! I felt so honored that she asked me to do so and so here it is!!! Enjoy! Maybe you could google translate it or something.. hahaha.
Mirëdita!
The military members are being transfered from Kosovo this week!
Emrinë ime është Motra Forte edhe jam një misionare në Prishtinë tash. Unë e dua Kosov edhe jam shumë mirënjohes për mundesi që unë kam të sherbej njerëzit ketu! Unë di që kët kishë, kishë e Jezu Krishtit të Shenjtorëve të Ditëve të Mevonshme është i vërtetë edhe që Jezu Krishtit është Birin e Perëndisë dhe Shpetimtari e botës. E di që ne të gjithë jemi femijet e Perëndise edhe një ditë ne të gjithë mund të jetojmë me Atë prop nese ne ndjekimi shembullin e Jezu Krishtit dhe pagëzohemi si të ka bërë. Unë shpresoj që ju mund të dini keto gjona gjithasthu me anë të lutjës. Ju duhet të leximi Libri i Mormonit dhe luteni për një pergjigje nga Ati Qiellor edhe unë e di që ai do të ju pergjigë. Une kam marrë një pergjigje nga Perëndia dhe tash unë e di për vetem ime, dhe unë kam marrë shumë lumteri nga kjo njohuri që unë kam. Degjo të Shpirt e Perëndisë edhe ju mund të dini c'farë është i drejtë. Unë thoj kët gjona në omër të Jezu Krishtit, Amen.

I love you all so much and I am so grateful for all of your love and support! You are the best and I pray for you every day!!!
Have such a lovely week and remember that your missionary in Kosovo loves you BIG TIME!!!!!!!

Keep Smiling and Read your Scriptures!
ps. Check out John 15:16-19 :)
Love Motra Forte

Letter #14: Its that time of week again! :)

Hey, hey baby!!! I want to kno-o-o-o-oh, if you'll be my girl!!!
(This song has been in my head all day!) haha.

Pershendetje toke!

What's up lovely people? I hope all is well back in America! Ahhh. I heard about the tragic events that are going down in Boston! WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE WORLD?! I thought I was coming to serve in the "war zone" but apparently, America is the new war zone! How tragic. 
This is the city shot from the top of the fortress!!!
Can you count all of the mosques??
The Albanian word for mosque is Gjami! haha.
I got your fabulous package family!!! Thank you so much for treating me to good! I am too spoiled.. That is for sure! Thank you for all of your love that you put into each and every item! Ahhh.. Mom, thank you for all of your time and effort you put into your sweet packages to me and for finally making the boys right me! haha. It was such a joy to receive their letters and to hear how they are doing! I hope your vacation was good! I can't wait to hear all about it!
This week has been such a fabulous one! We have had such a great week! Definitely one for the books :)
Some of my weekly highlights:
* GUESS WHAT?! This week we received a shipment from Albania and now we have pictures hung up in the church! They are so beautiful and the church is really feeling so much more like a church now! I have always taken the pictures and furniture for granted in our beautiful church buildings at home. Here is Kosovo, our church is just a building with two rooms for teaching, a kitchen, and a chapel where we have our sacrament meetings, and every other event at the church! haha. It's kinda crazy, but its all that we have here! Once we get 80 active members here in Kosovo, we can build a real church building! How cool will that be when they get a REAL church building here! Ahhh.. I cannot wait for that day! Right now we have about 15 active members, but that number varies each week! Kosovars are pretty flakey and don't really understand the importance of church. We are doing our best to build up the church here and to establish strong roots for the church to blossom here! I feel so lucky to be a part of the building up of this church. I know that the work is moving forward here in Kosovo, and as I continue to put my faith in the Lord, He will direct me to the people that are ready to receive His Gospel.
All of the roofs are red roofed! Its so beautiful here!
This is me taking it all in! Isn't the city gorgeous?
There is a stream that runs down the middle and bridges
that cross over in leading to the Gjami!
* We have been trying all we can to help our investigators progress here. It has been quite the difficult task, because right now we feel as if most of our investigators are stagnant and are not progressing. One of our investigators that has been progressing however, is this incredible girl named Dardania. She has been meeting with the missionaries for 5 months now and has come so far! This past week there has been a special spark in her though that was not there before. It is physically evident that the Spirit of the Lord is taking a place in her heart and helping her increase her faith and progess in the Gospel. She has been praying to receive an answer to know that the church is true, and it has been a difficult task for her as the Spirit is a difficult one to recognize if you have never felt it before. We have been trying our best to help her learn how to recognize the Spirit, and we shared D&C 9:8 with her to help her realize to process in order to receive an answer. It really helped me as well to recognize this process, and I know that if we all have faith, and study out decisions in our life, the Lord will give us an answer! Please pray for Dardania that she might receive an answer that the church is true and that she might have the courage to go against the Muslim culture here and decide to be baptized! We need all of the blessings we can get!
This is the fountain in the middle of the city called the
fountain of health! haah. Aparently if you drink from it,
it will give you good health and make you healthy! haha.
I didn't drink from it in fear that I would get sick! ha.
*On Friday night, we had a talent show with the members and it was such a success! So many of the members participated and is was such a good time! Lots of our investigators showed up and shared their talents with us as well which was so good to get them acquainted with the members and for them to feel of the Spirit in our church! Some of my favorites were this cutie named Valmira, she is 18 and she is a black-belt in Karate! She showed us a few of her routines and it was so rad! Fidan, one of our investigators showed us his sketch book containing his art and it was so good! Then at the end, Fidan, Valmira, and one of Kosovo's first members here, Donika, did a traditional Kosovar dance! It was so fun to watch! At the end of the show, we all danced traditional dances together and it was so much fun. This is what is it all about! To get people to get a glimpse of the happiness that our church brings to them. THIS IS THE PLAN OF HAPPINESS PEOPLE!!! We have the truth and how lucky we are to have this knowledge to share with the world. We need to always being opening our mouths. One realization that I have come to already here on my mission is that I NEVER want to stop being a missionary! We can all be missionaries until the day we die! We have an obligation to share what we know with others, whether it be our neighbors, our friends, our families, our co-workers, whoever will listen!!! This is such a great blessing that we have and everyone deserves to know the truth.
There is this awesome tunnel that I'm sure was used for
all kinds of purposes in war! How sweet is that?
*On Saturday night, we had the opportunity to go play soccer with the branch at the embassy housing, where a cute American Family in the branch lives, and it was the BOMB!  The Embassy housing is literally like a "little" America over here in Kosovo! It felt so good to feel a little bit of home there! haha. It felt so good to play soccer again and to enjoy it with everyone here! Soccer/Futbol is their sport over here and everyone is so good at it! 

*Today we went to a town called Prizren that happens to be the oldest city in Kosovo! It was SO awesome and so old! When I think of old Europe, I think of Prizren. It was beautiful! We hiked up to this war fortress at the top of the city that looks over everything and it was so beautiful! One of the Elders that came with us counted all of the mosques at the top, and guess how many there were just in Prizren... 36 MOSQUES!!! Can you believe it? It is incredible. We have quite a work to do. I can't wait for the Gospel to reach all of Kosovo! After the fortress, we walked around the city and satisfied our touristy needs, visited a mosque, and then went to this ancient Turkish bathhouse that is centuries old. It was pretty rad! I sometimes feel like I am walking around in a postcard here.. It is so awesome!
Anyways, I hope all is going well back home and that you are safe! I pray for your safety every day! Pray for me and I will pray for you! We need all of the blessings we can get here in Kosovo! 
Keep your heads up and remember that your favorite missionary in Kosovo LOVES YOU!
Love you always,
Une te dua shume!

Letter #13: Souls to save..

Miredita my beautiful people!!!
Kush jeni? A jeni mire? Une shpresoj qe te gjithe eshte shume mire ne Emerik!
The cute members and our investigators eating cookies
after church for my birthday! :)
How are things on the other side of the world?! I heard through the grape vine that North Korea declared war on the US!!! What the heck is going on people?! Geez.. well I sure hope you all are safe and doing well! First of all I want to say thank you to all of you for your love and birthday wishes!!! I loved them all and you really made me feel so special! :) IM 20 BABY! No longer a teenager! Woo Hoo! My birthday this year was slightly different than the rest, because it really isn't about me at this time. I am so focused on the people here that I didn't have any time to think about myself! After church yesterday we ate cookies and the branch all sang to me and ate with me! 2 of our cute investigators, Ermira and Aferdita, even got me a little present! They are the cutest and nicest people here ever! I love the people here with my whole heart!


I am so happy that Jordan's graduation went so well!!! CONGRATULATIONS BABY BOO!!! I love you. 
Another shout out for the week: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMO!!!! YOU ARE 15 TOMORROW BABY BOY!!!!! I am so excited for you and know that your favorite older sister in Kosovo is celebrating for you on the other side of the world! haha. I love you bud!

So this week was a good one! One of much learning, strengthening, and diligent work. This week I had many little tests that really strengthened my faith and helped me to remember my purpose as a missionary out here. I have come to a knowledge of the importance of being exactly obedient. I know that when we are obedient, the Lord really does bless us and will guide and direct our feet when we ask him. When we don't follow the guidance we are given exactly, and deviate even the slightest bit, we can end up somewhere we didn't want to be. I have come to realize the importance of these things this week and I know that as I continue to strive to magnify my calling as a missionary and be exactly obedient in all things, the Lord will bless me, and bless the lives of those here in Kosovo. 

Motra Hoover made me this cute sign and
hung it in the church! I love her!
 
This week I was reading in Mosiah and came across a few great verses in Mosiah 2:22-24. They talk about how we are so indebted to our Savior and how we should serve Him and keep His commandments in all things. It then says, when we are obedient, we will be blessed immediately and we will prosper! How cool is that promise? We have a responsibility to the Lord and that responsibility is to follow His commandments in all things and to strive to do the best that we can, because we owe it to Him. I  have really been trying to use my time wisely out here, because I realize that it is such a short time that I have to give all of my time, effort, and energy into this work. I owe it to Him! There is NO time to waste! I got souls to save!!! Pray for me that I might be able to be guided and directed to those that are ready to hear the Gospel here in Kosovo.

The gorgeous waterfall!
Not the best pic, but you kinda get the idea! 
This week I went on exchanges for the first time, and two sisters from Dures in Albania came up to Kosovo for the day! Motra Hoover had me teach two lessons by myself with this other sister, but I basically conducted the whole lesson. It made me realize how much I really can do on my own, and how much I really do know! Although I didn't understand everything that was going on, I was directed by the Spirit and I said things to my investigators that I didn't even know I knew how to say! It was such a cool experience. I have without a doubt seen the hand of the Lord help me here in Kosovo. Although these first few months of training are tough, I am learning so much and I have had to rely on my Heavenly Father to help me! I can't do any of these things without Him! 
The beautiful country-side on our drive to Peje

Today for P-day we went out to this rad place town about an hour and 10 minutes away, close to the border of Montenegro, called Peje that has this amazing waterfall! It was so nice to get out of the city for a few hours and to see God's beautiful creations! The waterfall was seriously raging!!!! So much water! Kosovo is absolutely beautiful in the spring time! I never want it to change. After the waterfall, we went to this fish restaurant next to the falls and I ordered Grilled Trout! Dad, you would be so proud! It literally had the head and the tail and I peeled off the skin and ate the whole thing! It was actually wayyy good.. haha.
I hope all is going well in America and that the North Koreans don't bomb the US!!! That would really suck.. 
I will be praying for you!
Love your favorite missionary,
Motra Forte xoxo

Letter #12: We are as the Army's of Helaman :)


My beautiful family and friends!
Another week has come and gone SO QUICK!!! This week was conference and I was able to watch the two morning sessions live here at 6:00 pm while is was 9:00 am or something like that in Utah! So rad.. I felt so lucky that I was able to watch some of it! My perspective is completely different watching conference as a missionary and it is so cool to realize that the church is literally all around the world and we are all directed by an amazing modern day prophet that receives direct revelation from our Loving Heavenly Father! He loves us all so much that we doesn't want us to sit in darkness. We are able to receive light and knowledge from our Heavenly twice a year!! How cool is that?!


Here are all of us Prishtina missionaries at
Ylli's fshat called Bruce :)
It was like little house on the Prarie, Kosovo style! 
This is Ylli taking Elder Roberts down to the bees before
he got stung! hahaha.
This week I was able to go to this amazing 70-year-old member, named Ylli's, awesome fshat (village) called Bruce out in the middle of nowhere! It was so rad. We went out there with the Elders and with the senior couple here, the Jones, to give him a lesson and the help him out around his land a bit! I literally felt like I was in a movie. Ylli completely lives off the land, has tons of trees that produce different fruits through out the year, and has tons of bees that he gets the honey from to support him. He lives in such humble circumstances with a tiny little 2 bedroom house that is hardly livable, but he is just happy as can be! The few members here are truly inspiring and the gospel is all that they have! It was so cool to see the place that some of these people come from and to really get a better understanding of their backgrounds. As we were walking around his land, we took us to the bee hives, i think they are called, and he could only take one at a time down amongst the bees.. luckily he chose one of the Elders, Elder Roberts as the guinea pig. haha. Ylli warned him not to freak out and to walk slowly to not disturb the bees, but even then, a bunch of bees landed on his forehead and tried to sting him. All of the sudden one flew in him mouth and stung the inside of his lip! AHHHH. Ylli quickly got him out of there and took us to his well to wash it out, but the water is so contaminated here, we aren't even allowed to drink it! haha. We told him no and he didn't understand, but its President's orders! haha. It was so crazy and I am sure glad that it wasn't me!!! haha.

So can I just tell you that I love the culture here!! I forgot to mention that Albanians and Kosovars are SUPER touchy and all of the girls give you three kisses on either cheek to greet you and to say goodbye! I love it.. haha. Everyone is so loving here! They might be hard-headed and stubborn as can be, but they are very loving! A funny side note.. So the  men here are so obvious and are always cat-calling at me and Motra Hoover, mostly because we are American, but yesterday this guy made the LOUDEST kissy sound and both of us turned, then he gave us the most awkward, BIGGEST wink I have ever seen! Both of us just turned away and started busting up! It was so classic. Men here are ridiculous. Quick your cat calling, put your pig boy pants on, and come talk to me.. about the GOSPEL! hahaha.
We took a picture with our hairstylists after we got a
hair cut this morning! classic. Do you like the new due?
I cut off 2.5 inches!

*Another little side note for dad: So American music is always playing in the stores and other places, and thats how a lot of the people here learn English.. Anyways.. I got a hair cut today and at the salon they were playing the Scorps baby!!! "Still Loving You" was the song and I couldn't help but reminisce! I am such a rock-n-roll girl at heart.. haha.I knew you would love that! ;)

This week was pretty rough for the work. People here are just so set in their Muslim ways and claim they have to keep the traditions of their families. We had tracted into a family here that seemed pretty interested, named the Buzakus, but the last time we met with them, they told us that we were welcome to come back and visit as guests anytime, but that they weren't interested in our religion. It was rough to hear, because they have SO MUCH POTENTIAL!!! Oh well. Hopefully we planted a seed and they will have another opportunity later.
Elder Roberts gave Ylli an American Flag tie to match his
and they both wore them on Sunday! Ylli and most Kosovars
LOVE America! haha. Its so funny!
 It is so hard starting a church in a country, because it is hard for the people here to see the vision. They don't realize that the church has 14.7 million members around the world, and that if the church gets big enough here, we will be able to meet in an actual church! I just have to have faith that if we are faithful and constantly prayerful, The Lord will direct us to His children that are prepared to hear His message at this time! I wish I could just yell from the roof tops, "All of you Muslim people!!! There is a Plan of Peace from our Heavenly Father through His loving Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, and He wants you to come to Him!" , and then magically BAM!!! everyone will believe in Christ and get baptized, but unfortunately it doesn't quite work that way.. The Lord has His ways and has His timing. Everything will happen here in this country in the Lord's timing! I have faith that one day the church will thrive in Kosovo, we just have to work on strengthening the faith of the members as a strong foundation for the church!
It has been pretty rainy and cold most of the week!
This was today with my rain-boots and umbrella :)
Missionary work is quite tedious.. I won't lie, but I have, without a doubt, seen the hand of the Lord here in Kosovo. It is so amazing to see the change that has come over all of our members and our investigators as they strengthen their faith and testimonies in Jesus Christ. I know that this is the Lord's work and that He wants all of His children to come unto Him! He is just waiting with His arm outstretched to these people, patiently waiting for them to come unto Him. I feel so honored to be a part of this work and to be able to see the great change that the Gospel brings to people's lives. The church is so true. No buts about it! And each day I learn more and more, that rings more and more true to me! We cannot get through this life alone.. WE NEED HIM. We have to be strong and withstand the evils of the world. We have to share the Gospel with everyone we meet, because everyone needs to have an opportunity to know the truth! 
I love you all so much and I so appreciate all of your love and support you have given me!
Have the best week! :)
Love your missionary,
Shauntel, Sister Forte xoxoxo

Letter #11: A marvelous work.. :)


Miredita Familje?! Kush jeni? Une jam mire dhe Prishtina eshte shume e bukur. Une e dua Prishtina dhe une jam shume lumter me sherby ketu! Une ju dua dhe une lutem per ju cdo dite! 
DISCLAIMER: The following message may include very poor English, so forgive me :)

Motra Forte and the Kosovo Flag! SO SWEET!!!
How are my lovely family and friends?! I hope all is well in the U.S.A. and that Obama hasn't let it burn to the ground already! haha. So all is well here in Prishtina and I have learned so much this week. It is unreal to recognize the hand of the Lord in your life when you are obedient and doing the things you are supposed to. I have had to rely on the Lord a lot this week as things have been pretty tough with my understanding and teaching ability and what not. I have really come to know that My Heavenly Father is always there and listens to every single prayer. He answers my prayers and I know that if I continue to have faith in Him, I will be able to conquer any obstacle that comes my way here in the mission field! 
This is the view from our window!
It snowed this week on Monday!
It's finally starting to warm up a little bit though!
Its so funny because all of the Missionaries here in Kosovo (there are 6 of us) call this area of our mission "The Promised Land"! haha. This is because all of the members here are so incredible and have such great faith. I am so impressed at these people's great faith as many of them are going against their families and the cultural norms and doing something that they have come to believe is true. Everyone here has some crazy war story to tell and their families have been heavily impacted by the war. The Elders have this awesome investigator named Kristnik from Gjakova which is 1.5 hour away. He started telling me about how his house was completely destroyed in the war, and then he proceeds to pull up his sleeve and expose these bullet wounds on his arm! These people have literally been through the wringer and they so desperately need the Gospel in their lives to heal those wounds.
The people here love America!
There is a statue here of Bill Clinton because he helped
to end the war here in Kosovo.
I'm super shiny in this pic, but this is the Serbian Orthodox
church that is completely vacant and is not in use,
but the Kosovars cannot knock it down or the Serbs
will attack and there will be serious conflicts!
UH OH..
  Kosovo is a 95% Muslim Country so pretty much everyone we teach here is Muslim. The Prayer Call sounds 5 times a day from each Mosque here in Prishtina and it is so crazy. The culture is so different here, but it is so beautiful. Most of the people here don't even believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God or the Savior of the World. It is such a privelage for me to be able to tell these people for the first time that they have a Savior and Redeemer that made is possible for them to return to live with God again! And although a lot of people reject our message, I don't get discouraged one bit because I know that this is the truth. If anything I am strengthened by people rejecting it and it gives me more incentive to work harder to share this message with as many people as possible here. So many people here are ready to hear and to receive the Gospel and it is so amazing when we find people that are willing to listen and have been searching for the truth. The Lord definitely prepares these souls to receive us and I have no doubt that he is directing this work here in Prishtina. So many crazy occurrences have happened that are almost "too good to be true"! Like, crazy things that could not be possible without the help of the Lord. This Tuesday, one of our lessons didn't show up, (which is a common occurrence here in Kosovo! Everyone is so flakey!) so we moved our schedule around and decided to go study at the church. Five minutes after arrived, 2 different investigators randomly showed up for a lesson! We weren't planning on teaching them, but we whipped out a spontaneous lesson of the Restoration, committed them to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized and they both accepted and committed to a date! Ummm.. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!! The Lord put these people in our path and they were ready for the invitation!
Me and some man.. haha.
I have no idea who it is or why he is important..
but I took a picture with him anyways! 
So a little bit more about Prishtina. It is pretty much a college town and everyone is always go, go going! EVERYONE smokes, so I always smell like smoke. I hope I don't get lung cancer from all of the second hand smoke!! haha. I need to wear a mask or something.. haha. There is pretty much a Mosque on every corner and there are so many Muslims here. You would DIE. The other day we were handing out flyers for Easter Sunday and some people would read the invitation in disgust, crumple up the invite and throw it on the ground. There are quite a few die hards here, but a lot of people claim to be Muslim because their families are, but they don't practice it. It makes teaching hard because so many people are set in their ways, but little by little we are bringing Christianity back to this country.
I am so happy to be a part of this work and to be able to learn so much from the wonderful people here. There is such a great Spirit here and I can feel the Lord hastening His work! I love this Gospel and I know that it really is the word of God. It makes me so happy to be able to bring this happiness to others and to see their perspectives change on life! I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and I am so happy to have celebrated Easter yesterday to remember His ressurrection! I know that we will be resurrected again to live with our families forever! I am so grateful for this knowledge and I love all of you so dearly!



Sorry for the novel! I feel like I have so much to say every week!

Love you to pieces,
Love, Sister Shauntel Louise Forte
