Well, I once again am a little pressed for time.
We only have an hour
left of P-day and still need to get groceries across the
yeah, I have to hurry.
Monday was my birthday P-day, which
was a lot of fun. After the games
and festivities, Elder Moore and I had FHE
with the Clemens family.
They are cool and they are big BVB fans, so I like
hanging out with
On Tuesday, we went to get Elder Moore's visa

some contacting and also had English
Wednesday was our last district meeting with Elder Waterböhr in

later on went by on a less-active member and
had a short lesson with him about charity. The end of the night
spent in ward council.
Thursday consisted of getting permission

city, going by on a less-active member to drop
off brownies for his

On Saturday, we had a lesson with Manuella before the broadcast of
women's session of conference was played. It went well. We also

broadcast of the Saturday morning session of conference.
On Sunday, we
saw the Priesthood, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday

conference. I really like the messages that
Jeffrey R. Holland, Randall L.
Ridd, M. Russell Ballard, and Gary A.

which date would be the best, but he really wants to get baptized.
gave him a couple days to think about a date and then to let us know.
hope he gets baptized while I am still in Germany, but if not, it is
end of the world.
Well, we had a good P-day today. Because of travel
Paderborn Elders overnighted with us again. So we had a P-day
and just played a bunch of games. It was good also getting to
Elder Isham, the new Elder in Paderborn.

PS Our P-day
will be on Tuesday next week, so don't expect an email till
