Hey guys! 

This week was good! We played ping pong last week on Monday and that was awesome. Turns out we have a ping pong table and everything here in the church. We met with Alli and had an awesome lesson and then went and contacted a bunch of people at night.  

On Tuesday, we did some former investigator go- bys and no one really answered the door so then we had English class with Daniel.   It was better.  I think he is learning a bit more.

Wednesday, we had district meeting it was good and then we had to go out to a members house for lunch. We had rice and chicken stuff. It reminded me of chicken Washington. We then hit a bus back to the church for geminda rat. That lasted a while but was really good and then we went out contacting for a bit.  We need are trying to contact 38 people every day to reach 1000 people by the end of the transfer.

 On Thursday we had an appointment and the dude didn't answer. Then we went around doing go bys and contacting. It went pretty good.

 Friday we got a survey from the other elders in our district that we can try at doors. It was really good and we got let in a door! We asked this guy about his religion and he was really nice and said he would love to learn more but he is going on vacation for a few weeks. So we will definitely go by again when he is back. Then we were supposed to have a lesson at the church but our guy never showed. So then we went to this other man’s house and he wasn't home. He was a former in our gps so we went by earlier and he said to come back by in the evenings.

Saturday we did our studies and then we basically got on a bus rode for two hours (actually it was three different buses) went to a members house for lunch and then we had to do the same thing on the way back and then we went to Kramer’s. It was basically a day of bus riding. Oh and at Kramer’s we were playing catch and I threw the football over this wall in their yard.  I went and rang the bell and I told the guy I threw the ball over the wall but I guess the word for a wall inside your house is different from the one outside so he was a little confused and started talking in English. Haha. But it was all good I got the ball back.

 On Sunday, we had church. I had to give the opening prayer in sacrament. I was nervous so the prayer was a little short. Then we went to a members for lunch. They are a funny family they have a little 1 year old who is running around saying hello to everyone and giving us handshakes and high fives. He also really wanted the iPad when we started playing a video on it. Haha.  It was a fun time.  We did more contacting that evening. 

And today we are going to the zoo in Dortmund. Sounds like you all had an eventful week with helping at colony. Glad everything went okay. Alli is an investigator we have and so is Manuela. They are both really cool.  I have noticed meeting so many different people and so many different missionaries that everyone really is different and has their own views on everything. That's awesome the church is helping out all the schools. I think it will be a great example to the rest of the community. There is not too much service going on here. We had those two projects back in Jena but here I have only helped Brother Kramer’s son move. I guess this Friday we are helping another family move.

Investigators are good. We do see interesting stuff here. There are a lot of homeless people who ask us for money. We also see people playing random instruments. I have seen a giant triangle guitar guy and a guy with a silver guitar. Yeah, I see Interesting people all the time. There are people that we call pfand pirates because when you buy a drink they charge you pfand for the bottle and you bring it back to the store and can get 15 cents or so and so when people throw the bottles away these people go digging through the trash everywhere looking for bottles. Hah it's crazy.

Well I love you all.

Love Devin
