Woche 33 und 34: das Leben!!!

  Mom note:  The last two weeks have been weird when it comes to emails from Elder Albrecht, they are being cutoff by a notice that is being attached to emails on the missionary server.  I'm hoping it will get fixed soon because last week I got two lines and this week I got lots more but still not his full email.

Woche 33 und 34: das Leben!!!
Monday, we really just relaxed. We have been just going so fast with everything, it was nice to take a small break.

Dienstag bis Sonntag both weeks
Well, we actually did the same thing everyday! Well, we went by on former investigators and went dooring. I learned the principle of time and patience these couple days. Many of the people we went by on said they had interest and would love to start meeting with us when they find time. Some people just need time in the conversion process, because it isn't just about baptism.

Monday was fun. We were with the Schwarzwälder Family for Family Home Evening. It was fun. We ate some awesome Tacos. Then we shared a spiritual thought with them. So we took a 50€ bank note and asked want we could possibly do with it. Many things came up, like candy and food and games and the such. Then we asked who would like it. Of course everyone rose their hand. And then we crumpled it and asked again, everyone's hand still left in the air. We then threw it on the ground and stepped on it. Everyone still waiting to see who would be rewarded. We then continued to talk about all of the ways this bank note could get dirty and filthy and yet no one was phased. They all realized the bank note kept its worth. We then explained that Heavenly Father sees us in a similar manner. He sees us sin and get filthy and do many wrong things in life. But he still sees our value and that it has never left us. Just like how we wanted the 50€, Heavenly Father still wants us, no matter what. He will make us fresh and new.

Dienstag bis Sonntag
Tuesday we had our District meeting in Schaffhausen finally. It was way good. We talked about the importance of strengthening our testimonies and how we create an atmosphere for people to grow their's as well.

This week was awesome. We saw how small the world becomes when you are on a mission. We went by on a former investigator one night. She let us in and was really nice. She didn't have any interest. She was stuck to her faith and wasn't moving anytime soon. but she told us how she shared the building with her three sons. Well, one of them walked in and it turns out he is pretty interested in what we were talking about. And then we were out finding a couple days later and we got talking to this man. He was way interested and told us to come by his house. We went further and then he walked to us again and asked if he gave us the right address so we could come by and stuff. Well, it turns out that he is one of the other sons. Crazy at how everything works. Even though the woman didn't have interest, her sons do!
