Hey Mom!

This week was a little slow, but it was still good. We met with Charles again, and taught him the Plan of Salvation. He agreed with everything that we said, it was just hard for him to understand a lot of things since his native language is French. He is still making good progress, and hopefully he will make his baptismal date. We dropped off a French Book of Mormon for him a few days ago, so hopefully he will read in it and progress even faster. He didn´t make it to church this Sunday because he was sick.

We also met with another investigator. We have discovered that he is quite well taught in Jehovah´s Witness beliefs. For that reason, he disagrees with a lot of what we say, but we always make sure to invite him to pray and find out for himself, which he seems willing to do. He didn´t come to church either, which hopefully changes this week.

Besides that, we didn´t have a ton of appointments this week because of Karneval, which is basically like Halloween and Mardi Gras all put into one holiday that lasts for a week or two. There was not too much celebration in Solingen; the big Karneval cities are Köln, Düsseldorf, and Aachen. We spent Rosenmontag (the big Karneval day, which was today) in Bonn because there it is much more family oriented and there are not nearly as many people just getting drunk and going crazy. It was pretty fun. There were a bunch of floats driving through the city with people throwing out candy and random stuff to the crowds. We did not get back until recently, and the city is pretty much shut down for the holidays, so we had to do our emails at the church.

Besides that, we met with a few members, and on Sunday we met with Sister Wüstehube, who is originally from South Africa, and then the Glosnickis, who are really cool. Bruder Glosnicki has been a member for about two years and used to be a professional skater, which is really awesome. But that was basically the week.

I hope everyone has a great week! Love you!

Liebe Grüße, Daniel
