January 30, 2012

            Well this week was exciting. First of all, I lost my planner :( man I am a terrible missionary. I left it on a bus. Which is not the greatest because it just had like all of the plans, goals, and lots of numbers. But almost everything important I have already written in our area book, but it did reinforce the importance of keeping our records up to date. On a less depressing note, we tausched with the zone leaders this week. I went to Winterthur to work with Elder Alston, and Elder Sullivan came to Wetzikon. It was a lot of fun to work with Elder Alston. We met with S…….., a Catholic Priest who was (has?) an amazing testimony, but isn’t baptized, its a long story, anyways, we had a good lesson, and hopefully we helped him to understand why he only needs to worry about what God expects from him, not what others expect.
            Other than that we met with a lot of members. The stake president wants us to really start meeting more with the members and helping them do missionary work. The rest of the week was pretty exciting. We met with P……., our Jewish friend, and he was going to come to church on Sunday, but his rabbi found out and told him he isn`t allowed to go. psh... just goes to show whose church is true. Our mission president wasn`t worried about us converting to Judaism by going to a synagogue. Hahaha I am just bitter,  but it doesn`t matter, no unhallowed hand can stop the work, and sooner or later P..... is coming to church. Hopefully sooner rather then later, but we will see.
            Other spiritual experiences... oh yeah, the temple!!!! I love the temple. We did a session, and it was in German again. It is the best! And we tried to invite L……. and A……… C…… to baptism. Their mom said that first she needs to ask her church if that is okay... hahahaha man, what does she expect that her church will say?  But anyways, we are still working with them. Elder Williams met with R……. and P……… while I was gone. We did get 3 referrals in the last 2 days though. So we are excited to contact some cool new people.
            Anyways, I now have permission to go to the dentist, so I will go this week, but I am not sure how it will be paid for. The office said to just send them the bill, so they might be calling you soon. Unfortunately the mission doesn`t cover dental expenses, so we will see what happens. But this week will be an exciting one. We have transfer calls tomorrow, and then Wednesday Pres. Kopishke comes and meets with us! (he is the President of the Europe area, and he is German). So we will have a great week. Hope everything goes equally well in Zion!
