This is Halloween

The end of October snuck up this past week, including Halloween!  To start everything off, P-day was spent looking around at shops, including going to IKEA just for fun.  In the evening we talked  and did some planning with the senior couple involved with our branch.  Tuesday we drove up to Dortmund for District Meeting, and said goodbye to a sister missionary who would be transferred out of our district into another area.  Upon returning from Dortmund, my companion and I helped out two members in our branch do home teaching.  Because of that, I got to meet some more less active members in our branch, which made for a good experience.

Wednesday we set out to explore the region of Siegen that contains the University and see if there was anything we could do for missionary work.  We also helped out a less active member with shopping and then visited the African shop.  Thursday we worked on former investigator records and in trying to find these people.  In the evening, we met with a part member family that has South American roots.  This was the first time we met with this family because they were on vacation earlier, so it was really cool to get to know them.

Friday we were asked by a less active member if we could pick up a cabinet she bought from someone in the city.  We were able to do that, and also build the thing for her, which ended up taking a lot longer than anyone thought it would.  Saturday was Halloween, and we kicked off the day meeting with an investigator, and we had a cool experience where we asked the man we were meeting with if his wife would be interested as well, and she ended up getting involved in the appointment as well!  After the meeting, I attempted to make brownies for an appointment later in the evening, and right as the brownies were finished, I somehow managed to drop half of them on my right hand, burning a few of my fingers.  I spent some time with an ice pack on my hand after that.  In the evening though, we were able to visit a less active member family and we showed them how to carve pumpkins and talk about the importance of church.  Finally, on Sunday it was testimony meeting, and after church we went with a member to visit an older member who can´t get out of his home too much.

Let the Holiday Season Begin!

Halloween Fun
