Germany Week 45

This week was pretty crazy, mostly because Friday was spent going to, partying in and coming back from Frankfurt where we got to sit and listen to Elder Bednar for about six hours. It was amazing, but it was kind of a long day because in order to get there on time we had to catch an ICE at 5:12 in the morning, so we had to get up even earlier. The actual conference was amazing and super duper spiritual. Let's see if I can remember anything especially cool without looking at my notes, which I left at home. Hmm... He told us we were super weird because we were a bunch of 20 odd year old sitting there on a Friday for six hours talking about how to use technology to spiritually uplift people's lives instead of whatever a normal 20 year old would be doing at that time. It was also way cool to just see how he taught. You see, he didn't just talk to us, in fact he really didn't talk all that much. Mostly he would say one or two things about it and then just ask for comments and what we were thinking. It was especially interesting because before we really started he made a clarifying declaration that he wasn't going to play a game of "Guess what's in my head" but that he actually wanted to know what we were thinking, and not just get us to say the answer that he was already thinking. It was way great, but I'll just leave it at that because there was way too much to even scratch the surface of what he said.

As for the peeps, M and K still seem to be doing pretty well, they've still got things to figure out, just like everyone, but they still seem to want to know, and that's what matters. As for the random guy, I have no idea what happened to him, he lives in Wesel's area after all. But last week because of some crazy Versp├Ątungen we were waiting for the Zone Leaders so we could split with them at Bahnhof when a 20 or so year old kid walked up and asked us if we were Jehovah's Witnesses, and we said no and then he asked us if we were Mormon. At that point we were pretty impressed and then he started asking us more questions, took a copy of The Book of Mormon and agreed to meet with us later that week. On the Scheduled day we waited for him at the Church, and he called us to say he couldn't come. I was just happy that he had called us. What's more, he actually came to church on Sunday, listened to a lesson afterwards and agreed to meet again this week. Should be epic.

Well, those are definitely the highlights of the week.
Have a great one!

Love you more!!!
