General Conference was this last weekend, and we watched most of it at the church. We brought our tablets with earphones so we could listen to it in English. We stayed up Sunday night to watch the Sunday afternoon session at home. (several time zones away) We love General Conference weekend, as it is a time that we can listen to inspiring counsel and instruction from our church leaders. When we prepare ourselves, we undoubtedly hear messages that seem to be just for us. We are looking forward to our Liahona (Ensign) magazine next month, which includes all of the talks given at Conference.

We are heading to Zadar this weekend, and will be able to see Elder and Sister Dever. They are the senior couple serving there and will be going home in July. Sister Dever is an excellent cook, and I've tried out some of her recipes. I started a mission cookbook, and I'm adding recipes from some of the senior couples. There are quite a few good cooks here in the mission, including the Mission President's wife. I have quite a collection of recipes and it continues to grow, thanks to their willingness to share.
Transfer announcements are tomorrow, and the actual transfers will take place next week. We know that we will lose one of our Elders. We love them both, so it will be hard either way. Sister Higgens has arrived in Karlovac. We have two sisters going home next week, so for now they are a threesome. We all went bowling on P-day at a new bowling alley in Old Centar. Bowling is different here. The pins are on strings, so when the ball hits, they tend to flop over rather that fly around. After your ball is thrown, it's funny to see the pins being picked up and dangling on strings in the air, until the ones that were left are set back down.

The word of the week is: proljeće (pro lee eh tsay) which means spring. Don't forget to roll your "r".
