This week has been pretty good! Pratteln (my new area) is doing really
well! It is a little cold, but it is slowly getting warmer.
Montag- we went shopping on the German side of Basel to get everything
for the Month. After that we went to the church in Basel, and wrote
emails. In the evening we had dinner with Bruder Rudschuck, and his
girlfriend. It was really good, and we got to know them quite better.
He is going to get baptized on the 22 of April, but he needs to get
Dienstag- we had district lunch where we all brought stuff to make
Tacos. After that we had district meeting. It was good to meet the
district, and it was nice to get to know the district better. Then we
got home, and had the Thompsons (a mission couple) repair one of our
doorways in our apartment. After that, we had a lesson fall out, then
we had a lesson with one of our investigators, Jose. He is from
Cabinda in Africa, and is really nice! He just needs to accept
commitments. Then we had another appointment fall out, but this time
with a member. We decided to go dooring, and found a really cool
family from Afghanistan. They let us in, and we shared a message about
the family. They enjoyed it, and actually invited us to come back to
Mittwoch- we went to Rheinfelden, and went by some potentials, less
actives, and did quite a bit of dooring. We were able to have a couple
lessons, with return appointments, so hopefully we can go make some
progress with them. After that, we studied a bit more, and then taught
some investigators German. In the evening we ate Raclette with one of
the Wiesner families. It was supper good!
Donnerstag- in the morning we had a lesson with Issam in the library.
He is from Tunisia, and also has a baptismal date. He already has a
testimony of the Book of Mormon, he just needs to understand the
principles, and doctrines more. Then we had lunch with a member. After
that, we went by a potential that wanted a Book of Mormon in Aresdorf,
and left her a book with a note, because she wasn't home. After that
we had two lessons fall out, but we made some calls, and had dinner
with the older Rudin family.
Freitag- we studied, then had lunch with the bishop, which was good
because he wasn't at church on Sunday so I finally got to meet him. It
went really well, and we were able to talk a lot about the work, and
the ward. Then we had weekly planning, and had a lesson with a member,
and an investigator named Annette. We tried to go by a potential after
that, but her husband wasn't home.
Samstag- we had 6 lessons fall out!!!..... But it was still ok,
because we played soccer with some investigators, helped and elderly
women mover her chopped wood into stacks, and had a Skype meeting with
the zone leaders, and other district leaders.
Sonntag- after church, we had a member appointment with Issam there
also. It was good to get a relationship going between him, and the
members. :) after we taught about the life of Jesus Christ, and the
atonement. After that we had a lesson fall out, so we studied a little
bit, and then had dinner with the Stahl Family.
