Woche 43: Oops...
Well, last week I failed to tell everyone if I am staying or not. Okay, so here it is. I will be staying in St. Pölten with Elder Wahl. Only change is our area name. We no longer St. Pölten2, we will now be known as St. Pölten A.
Monday was P-Day! Yay! Well, we had a member appointment with the Schildböcks. They made us some amazing Schnitzel with an Austrian potato salad and some rice. And then we also had a lesson with Sister Zettl. She is from Ivory Coast, so when we told her that a temple would be built there, she was so excited! It is so different here than it is in America. When they go to the Temple, they go for an entire week, because it is so far away. I was reading the small info boxes for the three countries being blessed with a Temple and one said that earlier the closest temple was 12 hours away, and then a one day trip and the last was 1000 miles away. The church is growing at an unbelievable rate and spreading all across the world!!!
Tuesday we had District Meeting. We talked a lot about the companionship of the Holy Ghost. How we learn from him and how we can be directed by him. One important thing is to listen with Spiritual ears! And then we ate at Herbs. It is some Wiener Schnitzel restaurant and we ate Cordon Bleu Schnitzel there and it was massive. It was about 600 grams! It was huge and I ate all of it plus half of the Sister's who sat next to me, haha...
Wednesday went by on some people. Unfortunately no one was home and we got lost!!! But we found our way back.
Transfer Day! Well, today we were in a trio. Elder Wahl and I were with Elder Jakobi because Elder Seamons left for home! But, today we had another lesson with "M". She is so awesome! Well, today she expressed a lot of different concerns so we just promised all of the different blessings that come from this wonderful Gospel.
Friday we helped move some furniture at Sister Sindls and then after that we had an amazing lesson with "I". We talked about the Family Proclamation with her. She loved it and agreed that the Family is so important and that parents have such an important job and role in this world. We then extended a baptismal invitation. She said that she will look for a date! How exciting!
Samstag und Sonntag
Saturday and Sunday we pretty much went out to find and go by on people but again no one was home and all of our appointments fell out!!!
