A Little Bit Of History

My companion and I had a pretty good week for the final week of May.  We saw a lot of stuff happen!

Monday was a holiday, so we changed our Pday to Tuesday.  For the holiday we tried to talk with people on the streets, but because of the holiday, not many people were out, and it rained.  For what was something like an hour my companion and I were trapped under a bridge with two other people who couldn´t really speak English or German.  The reason for being trapped was because my companion forgot his umbrella, and didn´t want to get soaked in the rain.  Even if there was a language barrier, we did try to communicate with the other people under the bridge.

Tuesday was a quiet Pday, and some knocking on doors in the evening.  Wednesday was district meeting, and afterwards I drove to Nürnberg to start a split with zone leaders.  Returning to Schweinfurt, the zone leader and I met with a family we met earlier through knocking on doors, and we were able to share a copy of the Book of Mormon and invite them to read it and pray about it.  Towards the end of the week, my companion and I drove to a member´s house that lived far away.  There we learned about his family history, and things about WWI and WWII.  It was really cool to meet with this older member, and hear his stories, some of the stuff he was saying was incredible to hear, and then he had pictures and articles as well documenting the story of his family.  After that really cool appointment, we returned the car to the senior couple in Würzburg, that we were borrowing the car from.

Saturday we had our first cleaning check in Schweinfurt, and then later ran into the senior couple that came down for the check when we were out trying to talk to people.  They were out seeing the sights.  Sunday was quiet, especially because it is vacation time in Germany, so a lot of members were not at church.

So that was the week!  I would say it was a good time, and a lot of good things got done.
