May 25, 2015

Hey guys,

So this week we had cleaning checks. We cleaned our apartment and then the Bench’s came and checked out our place. They said it was all good but Sister Bench started trying to fold my clothes because apparently, I folded my pants wrong and she was trying to get my shirts out so she could iron them. We told her we do that in the mornings before we put the shirt on and she finally gave up. haha

On Tuesday we tried going by to visit less actives but no one answered their doors. After that we had English class and that went well. There is a girl here from Utah that’s going to school and she helped us teach. 

Wednesday we went to Unna because Elder Frickey is a district leader so he had to do a baptismal interview for an Unna's investigator. It went really well and then we went to a member’s house for dinner. They had wraps and it was delicious. We then went to Ward Council. It’s called Geminda rat here. 

On Thursday we went to the soup kitchen and gave out soup, coffee and water. It was a lot of fun. Then we went to Bro Kramer’s house and had lunch with him. He gave us Chinese food and then goulash and hash brown things. He always has a lot of food for us. Then we watched some old Joseph Smith movie with him in German and then shared a thought with him and then we went to Institute. Institute was good but our investigator didn’t show up. He is working three jobs and could not make it.

On Friday Brother Bench came back over and fixed stuff in our apartment. He was there for three hours.  We weekly planned and then went to meet an investigator from a long time ago. We showed up but he was stuck in traffic, so he never showed but we are meeting with him next week. 

On Saturday we went to Unna again because they were having a baptism and we were speaking at it and then doing service with them right afterwards. It was great because their investigator showed up and he got baptized! Afterwards, we went and helped a guy paint his house. It was pretty good but we all kind of sucked at painting. 

Sunday we went to church and afterwards we went to a members house for dinner. She had some meat thing called Rolladen, I think.  It was delicious and we had knodel (dumplings) and gravy and rot kohl (red cabbage)and then had a lesson with them. We also got a referral from them. Her son had some girl over and she said she wanted the lessons. And now it’s Monday and I am at the Church emailing you guys, and there is some guy next door sweeping his porch with no pants on. haha
Pant-less man next door

 I am glad that you guys all had a good week four wheeling. That’s good you had Adam helping get everyone out. He needs to build some muscle for snowmachining when I get back. haha  That’s cool your going on splits with the missionaries dad. Maybe you can go flying with the guy. He can teach you how to use the radio. haha  I don’t have any really cool mission experiences to share this week but I have been reading in the Book of Mormon a lot and I really like it. I used to think it was boring but not anymore. We listened to a talk called 17 Points of the True Church and it is a really cool talk. You should listen to it. I am sure Adam has heard it while on his mission. 

I don’t remember Brother Brown. That is cool he served his mission in Frankfurt.  What cities did he serve in? I am going on another split with Elder Watts in a few weeks, I think. We are working on less actives but they live far away and they are never home. We are meeting with Gerardo still which is good. Our area has Hagen, Ludenscheid and Iserlöhn. Germany is good. It’s a little rainy today but it’s good.

Well have a good week! I love you all!
