Woche...: Someone remind me! Montag On Monday, we did some shopping for Elder Ashcroft. We also went to the Weihnachtsmarkt(Christmas market). That was tons of fun. And then, I bought my 5€ gift for the Christmas Conference on Saturday. I got a Snowglobe, it was pretty dang good! And then we went down to the Erlacher's. They are so amazing! We had Grilled Cheeses with ham and tuna and stuff like that. It was great. We also had some British drinks. Don't remember what they were called, but they were British. They are also taking care of the three cutest Egyptian kids! They are just adorable!
Dienstag Tuesday, we didnt have District Meeting! So the morning was normal! And then we went out to go by on some Referral. He works at some Pawn Shop thing. So that was real cool. He was super busy, so he said to just call. But later, we met wit the Persians again! We met with one of the Ward missionaries, Klaus, and a different Persian member. Well, he talked almost the whole time! It was so hard to take control, especially since it was in Persian! But, it ended well. We then had GMK with only half the people. But it went pretty well. Mittwoch Wednesday, we met with "WS". He was the referral from last week. We brought Bru. Obermayr along this time. They got to know each other and then we started! It went extremely well. We taught about God, Prophets, Jesus Christ, and the Great Apostasy. We are all on the same level. He also already believes Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true! He is amazing and so prepared! And then we went finding after that. Donnerstag Thursday, we started our exchange with Wels. I went on over to Wels with Elder Stahle. He is super cool. We went finding and stuff. Both of our lessons that day fell through. So we walked for a bit with our joint teach, Daniel. He is 17, and super nice and cool. And then, I later ate Bratwürstel with Sauerkraut and Semmel. Sound Austrian enough? Haha, it was amazing!!! Freitag Well, Friday, the other two appointments also fell through. So we went finding some more! We asked people how they celebrate Christmas! Apparently what I ate last night, is super Oberösterreichisch(Upper Austrian) to eat on Christmas Eve... Hmm... Haha, but it was cool. Samstag Saturday, we had Christmas Conference in Salzburg! It was awesome! I loved it, a lot! We talked about the new Christmas Initiative. The Videos, and Jesus Christ! It was super good. We also watched this film called "Silent Night." It talks about the origin of the song. Way cool, especially since it was filmed in the Salzburg area, and we were in Salzburg! Talk about fitting!
Sonntag Sunday was church. Went to choir. Sang. Had the rest of church. We had 8 Persians come. We have 10 investigators, not including three children, 3 active members, and 5 less active members who speak Persian. So many!!! But it was great! We then went to the Miesbauer's after church. They speak in Austrian High German at home when we are there. So not full out dialect. Elder Graham didn't catch what one of them said about tea, so I translated it for them. Tey were all at awe, because of my amazing Austrian German understanding skills, haha, but it was a great time together!
