Mission Tour and Member Finding

I finally got to visit my first castle!

For Pday we went to to the Schloss Neuhaus castle, which was about a 20 minute bike ride away from where we live.  With school back in season, there were a lot of students hanging around the area.  It feels like we will be seeing a lot more kids out now that school has started.  We even had some come up to us and ask about our name tags.

This week we continued our assignment from the branch and sought out those who were on the member list.  Unfortunately, about 99 percent, it seemed, moved and their telephone numbers didn´t work.  So now with this assignment over, we will be focusing our efforts on finding people!  That is neither mine or my companion's strongest trait, so it will be an interesting time, but I believe we can do it.

The highlight of the week, however, was the mission tour/zone conference we had.  We were visited by Elder Patrick Kearon of the first quorum of the Seventy, and it was a great experience.  He was fun to listen to because of his British accent, and he was actually a convert to the church, so it was interesting to hear about finding from a a guy who was found on the street.  It was definitely a big spiritual and motivational boost, and we all got to shake his hand, which was cool.  It was great!
