Germany Week 86

Dearest Mum,

I feel like this week is best summed up in a scripture I read this morning, namely Ether 2:7, where the Lord tells the people that He's not wanting them to stay where they are in the wilderness, but to go to the promised land, because Bonn is the promised land. And it's pretty much just because the members are the best ever. Yesterday morning we were leaving Geminderat, which we had right before church, and I was saying hi to people when one of our Neubekehrts, C, walked up to me a little stressed because he had brought a family with him, but they only speak Persian and, while he speaks good enough German, he didn't feel comfortable translating and he couldn't find H, the guy who usually translates. But that's just because he was in Geminderat with us, so then we solved all that and he helped them out and then made an appointment out for us to go help him teach them. (Not entirely sure how that works, since we literally cannot communicate at all. From what I hear about the other Persians that recently got baptized, basically Hamed just teaches them and then we help Hamed make sure he taught them everything.) So that should be epic.

Anyway, the rest of Sacrament Meeting was also epic because we had the Testimonies in literally four different mother tongues. Super cool. I feel like other stuff happened this week, but the stuff with C and H was the coolest so it kind of blotted out everything else. But I'm still out on a limb with my Visa and with those other referrals, so yeah. But hey, Church is true and members are awesome and can make anywhere into the Promised Land. But especially Bonn.

Love you more!!!
