Wednesday we went to a less active member´s house who is confined to his home, and picked up a shopping list from him. We ended up having to go to three different grocery stores for this member (he used to be a chef) and then rushing over to an appointment with our American investigators because the shopping took longer than we thought it would. The appointment afterwards went well however. Thursday was unique because we drove from Siegen all the way to Frankfurt, to trade in our car we had with a newer one. That trip involved seeing the first snowfall of the season, and struggling to find a parking spot in the busy streets of Frankfurt. It lasted all day.
Friday we had our usual weekly planning, and afterwards going back to the less active member´s house and doing his dishes. We also were able to visit the African shop and got into a discussion about the gifts of the Spirit and living as Christ would. Saturday we went to the member we helped on Monday and spent a little bit of time at the self reliance program he put on (the whole reason for us cleaning on P-Day in the first place) and switching out the new car with the senior missionary couple's car. We also went out to get some shoes for an investigator to help him get to Church, and visited a less active family with a member. Finally, on Sunday we had our American investigators show up to church, and we invited them to baptism for the end of the year, which they accepted! We also were able to visit a member after church and help out in writing an email in English.
In summary, there was a lot of service this week, and also setting two baptismal dates!
Giving in to the Force
