|This is where I live...wow!|
We also set up a Facebook page for the "Heidelberger Missionare" this week with one of the Young Women. It’s going to be sweet. We have been going to member houses and asking them to post a Mormon message, or add friends, and we have also looked up a lot of less actives, potentials and investigators. It’s great. We are going to have the Young Single Adult’s post about Institute and invite their friends. We found a potential this week by having her add us on Facebook, and she said she will come to Institute on Thursday now. It’s pretty cool.

We also were able to meet with Kristin for the first time this week. She is the girl taking the class about Mormons, and she had so many questions. We taught her at the Taylor’s house, because he is the Assistant Teacher for the class. She wants to learn why the Restoration was so necessary and about the Plan of Salvation, so we are excited. We are teaching her again on Thursday.Another cool thing happened at church on Sunday. One of the bishopric came up to us and told us that there was a girl in sacrament that we should go talk to. Apparently, her friend was studying at BYU and she had gone to church with her one time while she was still in Germany and liked it. She liked it so much that she looked up the address here and decided to come again. She wants to learn more, and so we are meeting with her Thursday before Institute.
Seriously, I do not know why or how we are being so blessed, but interested people are literally coming to us. I feel like members are introducing their friends to us and people are walking up to us wanting to learn more. The best part is, these people are NORMAL. I feel like it is the missionary curse that the only people (most of the time) that you talk to on the street or unterwegs, and actually talk back to you, are the unusual people. But all these people are normal. The bishop and ward are so excited that I feel like it is just a domino effect and they are willing to help out even more. This week is going to be great. We have so many appointments that we are having a hard time scheduling them all. That is a problem I will gerne take.I love Heidelberg. I feel like while I am in this area, it truly makes me understand why I am in Germany. I would live in this town forever. The ward, the people, the city, everything, is just so amazing
|Sister Pederson put on my Snuggie and|
wouldn't give it back. My Snuggie is amazing!
Pick a good one.I love you all! I hope that you have a great week, and that you enjoy yourself in whatever you do. I know I will. Also Taryn, I have no clue how to say sunflower oder Willowtree. For some weird reason, those are words I haven’t thought to study during language study. I should probably change my focus....
|My 6 month mark...crazy!|
January 24th was my SIXTH MONTH MARK. I have been out six months now! It is absolutely crazy to think that. We are celebrating by going and getting döners.
