Hey you (dad voice)
Another happy week out here in Germany. Sometimes I forget I’m even in Germany. It’s so great here I love this place. Life is just good right now. Kinda gives the feeling that something terrible is coming. But that’s a silly way of thinking. I don’t think God gives us blessings just so we can anticipate something to ruin it. So I guess I’ll just enjoy it while I can.
Anyway, this week was way good. Lots of meetings, though. Not as many opportunities to go and talk to people and teach, but still a solid week. We had 3 out of 6 days this week taken up by meetings!
On Tuesday we had a big zone conference and that was way special! The theme was the gospel of Jesus Christ. All the presentations were just on point! It’s funny that sometimes I just get caught up in all the fancy bells and whistles of the Church. But in the end, what really matters is our faith in Jesus Christ and his teachings. Without that faith literally nothing productive could ever get accomplished in the church. It’s nice to finally have that one place where I can go for any question. I feel like for my whole life, the places I would turn to for advice is mom, dad, friends, but never God. And now I still go to them for advice, but I added Heavenly Father to that list and have seen such a change in the way I view trials and changes! Just feels good.
Then Wednesday we went to go by an inactive member named Bruder Gross. He’s actually a way cool guy and loves Cowboys and America. But as we walked in his house was filled with a cloud of smoke and a bottle of whiskey on the table. Way sad. We tried talking to him about his conversion and stuff but he wasn’t really having any of it. It’s hard to help people some times but everyone makes their own decisions. I’m just here to try and help.
Thursday we had a sweet young men’s activity at the Lipke’s house! We only have like 4 young men but it was still pretty fun. We just played cards and chatted about life and all the good stuff. I just love the youth of the church in Germany. They are so different from the rest of the kids here. It’s so cool to see! Like they just don’t act the same. I love seeing kids being faithful at such a young age cause I just like wasn’t like that and it makes me so happy knowing how much better off they’ll be for sticking true to what they believe!
Then Friday was way sick. We had no appointments planned or anything so we just got to go hit the streets for the only real solid time this week! We talked to some way interesting people. Some had like already investigated the church like 30 years ago and some are refugees! It’s sad though cause we aren’t allowed to teach the refugees until they have a permanent home in Germany. So we got a lot of potentials so we’ll see what comes out of it! Then Friday night a member wanted to take us to a light festival! It was soooooo dope loved it so much. I’ll send pics.
Then on Saturday and Sunday we had stake conference… And you all know how that goes lol. So ya life is just great. Can’t really complain a bit. Just a happy kid.
Well thanks for all the love you’re sending over here. I love you all a lot.
See ya soon enough
