Woche 64: Finden, was?
Monday was Interviews with President Kohler(our mission president). We were up in Vienna. That is why the email came on Tuesday last week, and not on Monday. But Interviews were so good! We also had District Meeting during the interviews. So it was roughly three hours long. So long! We talked a lot about the Book of Mormon during the District Meeting. We talked about how it can answer our soul questions. In essence, the Book of Mormon is God's word, and absolutely amazing. It is super awesome that God has blessed us with a second witness of Jesus Christ! But my Interview was also good. chatted about the work and the district for a bit. It was really good! And then we went to Herbs. It is a restaurant and the real name is Schnitzel Wirtschaft. No one really knows where the nickname came from, but there are theories. Anyway, we had these huge Cordon Bleu Schnitzels! Haha, so much cheese! And then we went home. Well, we actually got stuck at Wien Westbahnhof (Vienna West Train Station). Our train got delayed because of the mass amount of refugees coming in. There were so many people there! But we eventually got home.
Tuesday was P-Day, weird... But, we really didn't do anything special. Just the usual stuff! And then afterwards we had a small meeting with President Mauch (our branch president). We talked about missionary work, and about using the building more, and stuff like that. It was good.
On Wednesday we took a journey up to Krems an der Donau. Well, let me tell you, there were a lot more people out and about there then in St. Pölten. Even though St. Pölten has a larger population. But we went finding and dooring and went by on some people. It was a pretty good day. Oh, and Krems has a beautiful City Center. and there were so many Americans and Canadians there! It was kind of weird seeing what Americans were like. So much different! Of course, not in a bad way! And we also found a super nice lady! She invited us over sometime to give her the Book of Mormon! Awesome!!!
Thursday was super awesome. Well, we went by on "A", and he was home! We gave him the Persian Book of Mormon. His brother was even home as well! So we had a pretty good religious discussion with him about the differences between Islam and Christianity. We talked a lot about Jesus Christ, especially being the Son of God. It went pretty good. And then we later went by on Herr "S". We gave him a Persian Book of Mormon a couple days earlier, so we talked a little bit about that. We talked about where it came from and why we have it! It was super good! Good day!
Friday was our planning day! We planned for the coming week. And then we also went out finding! It was pretty good! We also found another guy! He was interesting. Kind of complained about wars and America a lot, but we told him about the Book of Mormon and he gave us his number to call him and set something up since he is going on vacation! The Book of Mormon has so much power!
Saturday we went to Herzogenburg. We went by on someone we found last week. Well, she said that she needed time to read because she didn't read a lot. We tried to explain our message to her and that it was alright that she didn't finish, but she insisted. So we will try in a month or s, she was still nice though! Well, we continued to door in the surrounding area. And then we eventually came back and it was raining. We had to take of business at the church, so we did that.
Sunday was great! Church was good like always. It was fast and testimony meeting, so we got to share our testimonies over the pulpit. It was nice to hear everyone's testimony. It sure did strengthened mine. Oh, and "M" came to church as well! So that was way cool! And then the Mauchs drove us to their place and we ate lunch with them! We had the European Version of Tacos! It was still good though! And then we ate Yogurt. They are so awesome! And then we saw a billion more refugees in Vienna! And with all of these people wearing signs with the languages they speak. It was crazy! Well, that was my week!
