We had a pretty good week this last week. We had a lesson with a family, the Meckels, on Monday. We talked about praying in the family, and it went pretty well. On Tuesday, we had an appointment with a potential investigator that we had found named Herr Pfau. He was a nice guy, but was really indecisive and was hard to get answers to questions from. He accepted some of what we taught him though. We tried to set up a return appointment with him, and he said call back in June. I hope he turns into an investigator at some point. On Wednesday, we had our usual appointment with Sch. Doerlitz, and afterwards had our first English class and also a fireside at the Krause home.
We had a really good lesson with Raymond. It took around 3 hours, which was ridiculous, but he is starting to consider baptism and has been reading in the Book of Mormon and even marking scriptures. We taught him the first half of the Plan of Salvation, which he liked except he was kind of against the opposition in all things stance and thought it would be better if there was no devil or if we just never learned about him and only had good influences. We tried to resolve his concern, but it is one of those topics that we will have to study about more in order to resolve it completely. We had another lesson that night on the street, which was cool. Friday consisted of a really long district meeting since there was an additional hour about training. Afterwards we had a district finding day here in Gera. We found like 4 potential investigators in 2 or 3 hours, so it turned out ok. After that, we had a lesson with a member who previously had her name taken off the records of the church. It was really good and she wants to start living the commandments again, we just have to follow up and help her actually do it this time.
We had a split on Saturday with the other Gera Elders. I was on a split with Elder Waterboehr. We had an appointment with their investigator, Elisa, who is dating a member. We taught the Gospel of Christ, and it went really well. We then had lasagna afterwards. Yesterday was not super exciting. After church we had to do our studies and our weekly planning, which took most of the day. That is pretty much all that happened this week.
Well, I feel like my emails just get shorter and shorter, but time is starting to fly by so fast I forget a lot of the details and there are also 4 elders here so that puts some pressure on the time we spend emailing.
I hope you have a great week! Love you!
