The Life of a District Leader

It has been quite the week for my companion and I.  Being a District Leader sometimes means helping out others in the district, and there has been a lot of that going on.

After a P-day of shopping, emails, and miniature golf, my companion and I went out to try to get into contact with some investigators before they left for vacation, and we were successful.  The next day we had district meeting, and a split with the other Schweinfurt companionship.  During the split, we were able to visit some investigators, and we were able to share a message about believing and knowing.  I know I felt the Spirit at the end of the lesson, and I am pretty sure the investigators felt it as well.  That was a good experience.  I then ended up having an hour and a half long phone call with the woman who has had alien contact.  We´re still working on trying to do a church tour with her.

The next day we split back, but not too long after that the other Schweinfurt Elders called asking for some help.  So we ended up going to their apartment and baking snickerdoodle cookies with them. They then later delivered the cookies to a part member family in the ward.

The following day I went on another split; this time with an Elder in Würzburg.  There we shortly visited an investigator, and attended institute, which was put on by the senior couple in our district. The next day we did some service for a member in the Würzburg ward.  When we split back we went out to eat together at the Schnitzel place in Schweinfurt that gives a lot of food.  Then Saturday my companion and I got another phone call from the Schweinfurt Elders, requesting help.  They had been going through a lot of stress, so later in the day we allowed them some time to cool down and ate dinner together.  Sunday we had the Stake President visit our ward, President Schwartz, who was the Mission President when I first came to Germany.  It was fun to see him again, and have a little bit of interaction with him.  The rest of the day was spent planning for the next week, because we didn´t get a chance to do it earlier in the week.

Every day is an adventure in the mission field!

Lots of food is good
