The Force Is Awakening

It was the second to last week for my first transfer in Siegen, and this is how it all went down:

Monday was P-Day as usual, what wasn´t usual about the day though was we had a lunch appointment with some older members in our branch, and helped them configure their tablet with Apps from the Church.  Tuesday we traveled to Dortmund for district meeting, which was about finding people, and after that we visited the member who was in the hospital to see how he was doing.

Wednesday was interesting, because we had multiple appointments teaching about the Restoration of the Gospel.  The first appointment was with an older German man, who has met with missionaries before.  It turned out to be a rough appointment, because he was completely rejecting us, but we didn´t dare let him have the last word.  Immediately after that, we visited a shop run by the African lady who knows us, and she had us sit down and preach to a guy who was there.  So we taught about the Restoration again, and it went way better than before, and I could feel the truthfulness of what my companion and I were saying (plus it was in English, which makes things even easier.)  In the evening, we saw a news report about a news team that followed a Mormon family in Germany, and explained some stuff about the Church.  It was ok, could have been better, could have been worse.  Thursday we visited the member in the hospital again to help him out with some odds and ends, and visited the African shop again, and sat down and taught the Restoration to three guys, who were all willing to listen to us.  It was great!

Friday was the usual planning for the next week, which was followed by us finding a member who fell out of contact with everyone a while ago.  He´s moved to a different city out of our area, so he´s gone now, but somehow we caught him as he was visiting a friend in our area.  We also had dinner with the senior missionary couple who runs the branch.  Saturday morning we helped our American investigators move a fridge, and taught a little about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we also visited a member in a developmental center and talked about Christ.  Sunday was fast and testimony meeting in Church, and we closed the week by visiting the member in the hospital.

Now it´s off to the final week of the transfer!

May The Force Be With You
