Germany Week 49

As for my week, it wasn't very interesting. Oh wait, it was, really just Sunday though. Our one awesome investigator, J, dropped off the face of the earth a while ago, but last Sunday one of our amazing members, M2, asked for his number and got a hold of him. He then invited him to these Mini-fireside things he does every once and a while and he came! What's more, yesterday, M2 brought him to church so we once again officially have contact with him and are going to meet with him on Tuesday! The JAE's in this ward are hammer.

Other than that things are pretty normal. M seems to be right on his way to getting baptized and everyone else seems to be doing pretty well too. I feel like this is a pretty lame email, but I really can't think of anything else to write so...

You're great!

Love you more!!!

Germany Week 48

Sounds like you have all been having quite the life up there with all that rain. Over here the weather is still just trying to decide if it's winter or summer. Maybe it will figure it out soon.

Well, transfer calls were on Saturday. I'm staying in Duisburg with Elder Bean. In fact our entire district is staying the same, moreover the entire North half of the Zone außer one person is staying the same. It was kind of crazy. It was also crazy because we're getting a new AP, and he's in his seventh transfer. Poor guy, he hasn't even ever been Zone Leader, or been outside of Idar-Oberstein and now suddenly he has to help lead the mission. But from what I heard from his trainer, Elder Tolson, he should be awesome.

As for everything else this week, I'm not too in touch with everything that happened here because I was basically in Wesel the whole week. Because of some crazy circumstances earlier in the transfer we had to do both of our splits with them last week, and I went to Wesel for both of them so I didn't end up meeting with most of our investigators. However, from what Elder Bean says it sounds like they're doing well.

Well, have a dandy week!

Germany Week 47

Dear Sis. Mom

That was dandy. I don't really have much else to say either... I mean all I did after our Skype thingy was go home, eat dinner, and go to sleep, so... Anyway, it was great to see you all and to (sort of) meet Anna and just be all around our family and jabber about absolutely nothing. But that leaves me with nothing to say now because as we established yesterday, our entire family is great at communicating.

So... I feel like I should make this longer, but I have nothing else to say, so... Peace! Have a marvy week!

Love you more!!!

Germany Week 46

May the fourth be with you too. We were actually going to celebrate that today by going to a giant Star Wars store in Mönchengladbach, but then we found out that it's closed on Mondays, and we were sad. Now we'll just have to figure something else out. Oh well, at least Jacob, Kyri and Logan can have a richtig gut Star Wars day.

Well, as for all the peeps, unfortunately none of them showed up to church yesterday, but we have gotten in contact with all of them and we have appointments for this week. Also, we had an amazing lesson with J, the kid we met at Bahnhof, this week. We taught him most of the restoration and when we talked about the First Vision the Spirit was super strong. At the end of the lesson we asked him to read and pray and specifically to pray to know if The Book of Mormon was true, and if Joseph Smith was a Prophet. To that he responded that he didn't need to pray about the last bit because he already knew it. Joseph Smith was a prophet. Needless to say Elder Bean and I had no idea what to say to that. Eventually we just ended up saying something about how God can also always reassure us once we already know something, and basically were just super happy about the whole thing.

Well, that was definitely the most exciting thing in my week. It sounds like your week was great, and you should make this next one great too!

Love you more!!!
