Okay so I am always going to be having my crazy headings because I am a dork. But its because the work in germany is really great. So many great people and I love their personalities. Everyone here just makes me laugh no matter what they say. Even though I dont understand about uhh all of it hahaha.So we have a few investigators right now and they are all solid. The first one is named Frau Wendler. We say Frau because she is a woman so you all know haha. She is amazing. She was christian before she first started meeting with the missionaries and it hasnet taken much before she has felt the spirit and really been able to see that the church is true. Her kids LOVE church and Love the activities and all the other kids and she is really wanting to get baptised. The only problem is that her husband and her are really fighing over it and he doesnt want her to. He is to hard harted to take lessions from the missionaries but we will keep praying that he may let her get baptised. She is trying to let him see the joy of the gospel to help him change his mind and we are so proud of her to stick in there even though its hard and she is fighting alot to stand up for what she knows is true! Its a testimoney builder for me to do the same.

This week was good and I dont have alot to say honestly because it went by so fast because right now we are completely re-finding and starting the program all over here in Dresden with the investigators. Its been great because we find for hours every day now and we talk to sooooo many people who wont even let us say "Hallo" They just say "Nay" as soon as they even think we are saying anything to them. haha. Stubborn but I love them. They are halarious.
This week we found 3 new investigators which is really really good and even though it was a super hard week and nobody wanted to talk to us, we still managed to find the people that we did and I know it only came from the faith and hard work that we put into it. I know that wednesday and thursday we didnt find anyone and it was rough because we went finding for probably a total of 12 hours those two days and didnt find anyone. But then friday came around and we prayed and prayed that a miracle could happen. Then the first session of finding didnt go well again. It had been 2 and a half days of nobody talking to us. But then we kept going and finally that night everyone decided to talk to us and we got to give out two book of mormons which is super hard to do. And they seemed really interested so hopefully they read it and call to find more out.
I dont have time this week to write any more than that so I just want to say have a good week everyone. And even though at times your life seems hard or confused why things dont go your way, you will find out everything happens for a reason. I know that through our faith and perseverence though that even though things may seem hard in the moment, we will find success in the end. It was a great first week. I have learned so much in one week. I have a lot to look forward to! Have an amazing week!

My week has been super long. I finally made it into Germany and its been fun! My first day here in germany I had to go out with an elder finding and it was so hard to understand anyone. Thats if you can even stop them on the street. The people here are halarious and most just give you the hand, say "nein" and walk off. haha. They dont really care to much but thats okay. Me and my companion just laugh because its halarious how some people act. Here in germany its gorgeous. I love how green it is and all the amazing old buildings and places that look ancient.
The food so far has been amazinggg! I love it and I cant get enough döner. haha. döner is bread with sauce and vegitables and lame and is just a amazing food. nothing better so far.
The "real" Mission life is much better than the MTC. We get to go out and really be free haha. Its great to be able to go out and eat. Or go out on the streets and talk to anyone about the church. Its soooo hard to speak though here in germany. Its impossible to understand anyone because of the speed and dialect of where we are here in Dresden and the accent is nearly impossible to adjust to as well ha. Its hard but I know that I will recieve help with that as I continue to have faith be obedient and work hard. I cant wait to see what me and my companion elder slinker do in this next week with finding people. We pretty much had to start from scratch and it was hard. Also we havent had like anytime to find people this week so we are way excited for that!
Love you all and take care! Have an amazing week! :) Bis Montag!
