We received some great news which I forgot to tell you all about 2 weeks ago... oops, things have been busy:) but, We recieved the word that Germany is getting Ipads!!! Elder Bednar will be coming this friday to introduce them to us and train us on how to use them in our proselyting efforts! We are so excited #1 to see elder Bednar! and #2 to get ipads. Woohoo! It will be a crazy day. I wasnt' asked to play the organ this time, but Sister Roderer who I sang with a couple weeks ago will be. She is an AMAZING musician. my goodness. I will have the privilege of being the chorister for the Bednar Meeting :) :) :) So much less stress. All I have to do is wave my arm back and forth :D also, Sister Rodere and I will be singing another duet this week in church.
This week we found 2 new investigators! We were going by on one of our investigators because we hadn't gotten a hold of him for about a week. We went by at exactly the right time, and we were let in to teach a lesson to his family. His wife had been in Greece sionce we met him a couple wweks ago and so she sat in for the lesson as well. We taught her the restoration and she was so intrigued by what we had to say! She asked amazing questions and While we were teaching the lesson, the husband also bore his testimony of the book of mormon, and he isn't even a member yet! He was so worried that his wife didn't know it was true yet, that he was trying to convince his wife with his whole heart that it ws true. She isn't sure if it is true yet, but we invited her to read it and ask God if it is true. Sadly, they didn't come to church this week even thought we went early to take them with our bus tickets sionce we can take two extra people on the weekends. We think they were asleep and didn't hear the doorbell, because no one came to the door. Oh well, they will come next week for sure!
The other new investigator was found while I was on a split with an Elder in Wetzlar, so I haven't met him yet, but I hear he is wonderful, however, he might be a little crazy... Apparently he pulled out some marijuana at the end of the lesson! Yikes. We will see how this goes next week.
We also had another group of youth come up from Abu Dhabi United arab Emerates this past week to do a Youth Missionary Fireside at the Temple in Friedrichsdorf. It was such a joy to get to know each of them. We did it similarly to the one we did last week. One of the youth had prepared a talk about missionariy work to begin and it was beautiful. tHen we introduced ourselves tot he youth and each shared an expereince from our missiona nd why we decided to serve. We had 10 missionaries in attendance. Then we had a practice teaching with the missionaries section where each missionary was paired up with two youth and we taught them how to teach the second lesson. After that we played a missionary olympics game. At the end, we had a question and answer session where the youth were able to ask each of us a question.The youth were so excited to work with missionaries since there is no proselyting allowed in their country. Some of them hadn't seen missionaries in a long time. One of the youth leaders told us he hadn't seen a missionary in 5 years! We felt so honored to be able to work with them.
Well, I think that is everything for this week! I am trying to give as much detail as possible :) Oh yeah, we also had two street diplays this wek and our zo0ne gave out 50 books of mormon this week! yay!
I love you all :) :) :):) :):):) :)
