|Dooring the Catholic Church|
|Huge Catholic Church we visited last Monday|
Thanks so much for the package! It was amazinggggg. I loved it so much and the shirts also fit wonderfully so thanks a million times!
That is cool about President Miles' homecoming. Sounds like it was a really good meeting and that is so cool that you and Parker got to go. It still feels like they are just in Munich and he is still our Mission President, as we still have yet to hear from President Kohler. So weird, such a big change, and yet it feels like nothing has really changed at the moment. We do get to see President Kohler this week in Winterthur, Switzerland on Thursday, so that will be wayyyy cool!
Ah, that is so cool that there were so many General Authorities and just awesome people there. That is so weird to think that President and Sister Miles will just resume normal life after the mission. Dang, that is pretty crazy to even think about.
That is so cool about Grandpa talking about Germany. Pretty awesome that Parker was also able to help Grandma fix her computer. That really sounds like it was good that you stopped by to give them a visit! So cool that Sam had a bday! Dang he is getting old! He is 3?! So cool. Time flies, that is for sure. Way good that they are all happy and having a good time!
Speaking of time flying, Michael H only has 5 transfers left on his mission.... That is so weird. We have finally been having contact so that has been way cool. He seems to be doing amazing and having a blast.
My week was really good! We have done a lot this last week. We went to some really cool churches in Rottweil last Pday because Elder Wilkins really wanted to see some, and we got some good pictures of those. On Tuesday we had District Meeting in Schaffhausen, which was also way good. We had a lot of fun and it was Elder Wilkins’ first time in Switzerland on his mission. So that was also a pretty cool event for him. On Wednesday we had a mission cleaning day, so we deep-cleaned our whole apartment the entire day, and we sure needed it! This apartment has been used by missionaries for like the last 10 years - haha. So it was well-spent time cleaning the place. We ate with Familie Z on Thursday and gave their son a lesson as he is almost 8 years old. They want him to hear some lessons before he gets baptised. Then we tausched, and Elder Abd El Moeti and I were chosen to go to a school presentation to religion students who were around 15 years old, and talk about our religion. So we practiced our presentation Thursday with a non-member family and it went really well. Then after, we went to the ward and watched the football game with members. It was way good!
But yeah - I did get to watch US lose to Germany. Pretty slow game, but hey we are through. And dang, Belgium is really good. They won all their games so far, so I do not have too much hope for us in the knockout rounds. People go pretty crazy about this stuff in Germany. So I am hoping Germany wins the cup while I am here, that would be cool to say that I was here when they won it. But yeah, soccer seems to be getting more popular in the US. Or maybe it seems like it because the whole world besides the US is obsessed.
On Friday, we had the presentation to the students. It was really good and we gave out all of the Books of Mormon that we brought. At the end, they asked us questions for 45 minutes, and I had a student ask me if we owned guns at home. Haha. I got to talk about Dad’s guns, hah. The Young Women in our ward also cooked for us and ate with the missionaries in the church that night, so that was interesting.
I was back with Elder Wilkins on Saturday, and there was a Golden/Trainer meeting for our zone in Singen. So we got to travel there and participate in that which was fun. We also ate there and had a good time with the other trainers and goldens. Afterwards we had studies. On Sunday we went to church, and afterwards we had a Ward Lunch which was really good. Frau B came to church and it was a really good meeting. Then we did weekly planning and studies for the rest of the day on Sunday!
Today Frau B went shopping with us because she is way into health and wants to make sure we are eating healthy, so now we have 0 milk products in our apartment - haha. We will meet with Frau B again this coming Saturday. For Pday today, we are planning on playing some soccer and Elder Cavin will help us get better.
But I have had some pretty cool moments this week. Teaching the class of 50 students was really good. We were definitely led by the Spirit and it was a really good experience to explain what we believe.
I love you so much! You are the best. Thanks so much for that package; it was sooooooo awesome. I am so grateful for the best Mama ever! Thanks for all you do for us boys!
