It's Getting Cold. . .

Hey Mom!

Well, this week was kind of a hard one. Elder Brown and I kind of went crazy just not knowing what to do since it is getting cold and it is getting more difficult to come into contact with much of anyone, but we are fighting through it. 

Monday was pretty good. We went to Neu-Isenburg to buy a couple things for P-day, and then came back to Langen afterwards for a member appointment. As we were in Neu-Isenburg, we saw Rosel Von Stauß, that investigator we had. She told us that she was going to the Philippines this next week for a few months, so I will probably never see her again unfortunately. We invited her to continue reading in the Book of Mormon, so hopefully the missionaries can help her when she returns, or even while she is in the Philippines. We had that appointment afterwards with the Mühlmann´s, which was good. 

On Tuesday, we went to Sprendlingen to try and find people, but it didn´t work out too great. There was one old guy that said he had no interest but then turned back around and put his arm around my shoulder, putting his face right next to mine explaining how he left his church years ago and then came back in 2008 or so. It was kind of awkward. We later went to the Schwarzes (not the mission president) for dinner. We talked with them about going about and doing good like the Savior. On the way there, a man approached us and said he had met with missionaries before. We got his number and made an appointment for Saturday evening.

On Wednesday, we went to Erzhausen to try and give away a Book of Mormon, and we were there for over an hour and a half and probably saw 4 people on the street. We probably won´t be going back there any time soon. Later on, we went by on the Millers, that family from a while ago that Sister Mühlmann introduced us to, and we caught the wife at home, but she was the only one there and had to leave anyway. So we will go by again this week. We ended the night participating in the missionary prep course for the ward and then had our correlation with the ward mission leader.

We had district meeting in Darmstadt on Thursday, and after that went to a restaurant called Vapiano for lunch as a district. It is way tasty. I had a split with Elder Phelps in Langen when we returned, and it was alright. We didn´t have the most eventful day in the world, but we did deliver invitations to a ward acitivity to members and also had English class.

After splitting back on Friday, Elder Brown and I had our weekly planning session. In the evening, we had our Bible study course at the church, and a small number of members came. 

Saturday was a really good day. We woke up early to go to the temple, which was really great. It was the first time in over a year since I was there. They don´t have the new film there yet; they haven´t translated it into German yet. I got to take part in confirmations after youth in the ward were baptized for the dead, which was cool. We did a session afterwards. After the temple trip, we went to Groß-Gerau so that Elder Brown could get his Patriarchal Blessing. It was a cool experience to be there for that. When we got home, we pretty much had only time for studies. We went to the church for that appointment with the guy from Tuesday, but he didn´t show up.

Yesterday was a good day. We had good church meetings, and then went to Peter Rojas´ place for lunch afterwards. We taught a lesson about the Book of Mormon, and then when we were done with that, we hade a dinner appointment with the Kempeners. We talked with them about forgiveness, and it went well. We ate a lot of food yesterday haha.

Well, that was about it for the week. I hope you have a good one!

LG, Daniel
