It was a good week!
Last Monday we had another family home evening with our investigator family and the cool member family! We just like sit down and play some UNO and maybe some soccer and eat then at the end we always have a lesson. It’s sooo cool! I love having members with us when we teach! Their testimony adds so much to the lesson! But it’s always hard when people get caught up on these little things. Like the dad of the family could not get past the question about us having a Heavenly Mother. We spent like half the lesson talking about it. People just need to stick to the basics and get a testimony, THEN they can go deeper into stuff. But he’s looking for answers like that before he gets to the basic surface of our doctrine! Kinda annoying, but I have to work with it. It’s just another testimony builder for me because this gospel brings so much peace to me that like I just trust that in the end it’ll be ok.
Then on Thursday we had Zone Training and I got to see Zack! It was so sweet! He seems like way mature but we had a good old chat. It was awesome! Sometimes I still catch myself being surprised like wow him and Adam are out here. Crazy. But at zone training they came out with a bunch of new rules n stuff. They will be super hard to follow but it’ll be a great opportunity to receive blessing for doing what we’re asked! I’m excited! I was just thinking about like the Romneys and Money giving me a shout out and stuff and every week mom and dad telling me how proud they are. And I thought like, if everyone actually saw me out here every day, would they be as proud as they were? And so it’s like a whole new motivation factor to work like all my friends and fam are watching me every day! I heard something great at the beginning of my mission, “Be the missionary your mom thinks you are.” I just loved that. Really just gotta like be my best!
The best part of the week was for sure when we set a baptismal date with Marian!!! The 5th of September we will hold a baptismal program!!
SooOoOooOoo pumped!!! It’ll be great. We had a wonderful lesson on Friday talking about the plan of happiness and we added the baptism with it and we invited him and he is way excited!! He kept on saying “es musst klappen” like “it’s gotta happen” lol it’ll be awesome!
Please pray for Marian as he prepares for his baptism!!
And now with the bad news. Direct chatting is no longer allowed. That means we can’t like get on and email back and forth anymore. I was just gonna blow it off and not care, but I didn’t wanna rob you/me of the blessings that will come from following it. As long as there’s a rule I might as well follow it. Sheesh. The list is really piling up here.
And the cherry on top of this week, was on Sunday I was just chilling at church and all the sudden I see the Steins (my main fam from Bonn) walk through the door!! Ahhhh it was soooo cool! Such a great reunion!
They totally surprised me. They drove 2 hours just to come up and see me! It was cool cause I could actually understand them now lol. Back when I left I was fairly new and couldn’t understand them too well. Oh man I haven’t stopped smiling! Lol
But ya I’m good out here. Time is going by fast.
Love you guys thanks for everything!
