Woche 55: Und es war heiß
|The Wien (Vienna) Zone the day they received their iPads|
Monday, well we met with a new friend of ours! "M" is a friend of a member who moved to America a while back... Well, we talked about the Restoration and why one was necessary. We testified that Joseph Smith really did see God the Father, and Jesus Christ, His son. And then we went dooring. We met some really nice people who said we could come back, later... And then we went and tried to visit a Castle, only to find out that it's private and people live there. Kind of a bummer, but oh well...
Tuesday, we had District Meeting in Vienna. We talked about love and the Holy Ghost. We discussed about love, and how it is so important in this work!!! We need to love, love, and then love some more!!! Like the scriptures say, we are absolutely nothing without Charity.And charity is like the ultimate love!!! So if I can't just love somebody, then wow... And then afterwards we stocked up on some German and English Books of Mormon!!! Wooh, more! And then we went home to drop them off, study a little bit of German, and then went out on the street to do a bit of finding, and we totally found someone who has interest in the after life! And then Brother Bauer, our GML, took us to his home, fed us, and then we discussed some things about missionary work.
On Wednesday we went to the north part of St. Pölten. It's called Pottenbrunn. We met someone new there, but he doesn't believe that he can ever believe in something... But he just loves the missionaries. And then we went to Aggsbach Markt. We are teaching the Chinese Family at the members house. It was a really good lesson. We finished the Restoration Lesson. We explained Joseph Smith's story, and then we talked about the Book of Mormon. Well, the brother, told the member, his sister, that he never doubted that the Book wasn't of God! It was awesome!
Thursday... Well, we doored some more in the neighborhood right next to us. We actually met a few different people who were interested in eternal families or in prophets! And then we later doored out by the city Forest... It was pretty, but no one wanted us there. And then it got like super hot... not as hot as Missouri, but with no air conditioning, it might as well be. We have one tiny fan... But it's all good, I haven't died yet.
Well, on Friday we went out to the Chinese Family again. We taught the Plan of Salvation. They all had questions about the after life, so we answered them and explained what will happen and how we need to prepare for it. And we also asked if they read in the Book of Mormon the past days. Well, they didn't all read it. But the brother did, and he said he knew it was true! He shared an awesome experience with us!!!
Samstag bis Sonntag
Well, Sunday we got a new Branch President. His name is Brother Mauch, well now it is President Mauch. But, he like 29, but I am super excited. And at church, the partions were opened for the first time!!! Well, because of guests, but it was a great reminder of where we wanted to get to! And then after church, we went out finding. We were about to pass some guy, but we stopped as he was passing us and he stopped. We asked him a couple a questions, explained some stuff, and he said we could share a message with him right then and there! We went to a bench and explained the Restoration. We explained Priesthood and Angels, and the Godhead. But he agreed to meet with us the next day!
Well, it has been super extremely hot here, but I love it because I get to be on the Lord's Errand!
