Homies liftin' weights like a forklift!

This week was great but my time kinna be short so I'm going to need to
make this one short!!! We had an awesome week, but I'm just going to
hit some highlights of it!!:
-our apartment has no hot water, all good we are tough boys
-we met with our homeless friend again, found out his name this time!
-we met with Karlheinz again, had a super sick time
-we got Turkish food
-talked to some drunk people on the street
-traveled to the very top of our area
-got soaked in the rain
-it's been raining for about three days straight
-I can't think of anything, so I'll just end it

Well I'm sorry for the crappy weekly, I'll do better next week! But to
make up I got a bunch of pictures! Have a good one!

Another week another dollar

This week was super great!! We had an awesome zone conference on
Monday and I got to see some homies from the mission!! We learned a
ton about the restoration and how to better teach it! The restoration
means so much more to me now and I'm so glad to be able to share it
with others! I encourage you all to study it more deeply!

Well I'm low on time and really the only thing I can think of is a guy
named Sebastian! Just some background, he just got out of jail from
being in it for 2 years, he has nothing, no one, his family lives in
Poland, and no where to go. One random day a couple weeks ago he rang
our doorbell and asked if we could do anything for him, we told him
nothing but give food and talk about Jesus. Which is amazing! But he
needed a lot of help. Fast forward to yesterday. Elder moon and i
decided to go home early for dinner because the day was dragging on
and we were just getting turned down. We got back to the apartment and
low and freakin behold, Sebastian had just barely rang our doorbell.
We talked with him for a bit and he was doing so much better since the
last time. He is still looking for a place and food, but has a job
lined up to start next month. We taught him the message of the
restoration and it was so spiritual! The Spirit was booming and we
were sitting on a bench outside of a Toyota auto sales.

Im so grateful to be here and be able to see the Light of Christ in
people's eyes and the Spirit work through us. It's amazing and i hope
that everyone can experience it in their life sometime! It doesn't
matter if your a missionary or not, member or not, or even a people
person or not. Everyone has the Light of Christ and everyone can
always share it with others! That's all the time I got so I hope
everyone has one freaking swaggin week and makes it a good one!

The church is true, the Book is blue, and Jesus loves you

Ok well this week and a half was really long and a ton happened, but
I'm going to keep it short today!!

First things first, our investigator, Amir, will not be getting
baptized this Saturday. Sadly he hasn't got an answer quite yet and
isn't ready, but I know he will be baptized soon. The only thing he
hasn't been doing is praying for that answer... which is kind of a
important.. so pray that he prays! He just lacks the confidence to say
one, but I know he will get there.

Besides that we had a great week! We had a split with the Zone leaders
which was awesome as always! We talked to a ton of people on the
street about that awesome blue book and sadly not a lot of people
wanted one, but there are definitely people that do! This morning on
the Bahn some random lady just walked up and asked for one, we gave
her one and she just got off right there... it was way crazy!

The work has been going really good here though and I'm still loving the
area so that's good! I'm low on time so I just wanna tell you all how
much I love the Book of Mormon! It's crazy that a simple book can just
change a persons life! I can't believe there was a day that I hated
that book. Well looking back that is a lot like how Germans/other
people are! I hated something I never even gave a chance. That's like
hating a food for no reason and then when you try it it's actually
your favorite food. (I was just thinking about food and that was the
Analogie that popped into my head, so don't hate). But for real
though! It's so true and I will always read it, for the rest of my
life. No other book is worth reading to me nor do I want to waste time
reading a different book when I could be readin that one! So give it a
try if you haven't, and read it! If you are reading it, stick to it!

I will catch you all next Thursday!
