A Day on the Beach

Tuten Gag Frühlings,

👹Hello my sons. I hope you're all doing close to fantastic. I'm doing pretty great if I do say so myself. This week was pretty solid. We were packed busy like we always seem to be. We did some good old fashioned yard work for a family in our branch who lives on like a farm and that was wonderful. They fed us well after and gave us treat bags full of American stuff from Trader Joe's, so I'd say it's worth it.

👹Today was sick. We went to Berlin in the morning and went to see the Berlin cathedral there. It was super cool actually, we enjoyed the time. They were also starting some service thing when we were leaving, too bad we couldn't stay.

Anyways then we went to a beach volleyball place with our zone and played some freaking beach volleyball. It felt like California so that was sick, but nevertheless my team was insanely good and we wrecked every other team. 

👹Zone Conference was on Friday, great time as always. It's a great time to get a good roast from President. He's pretty good at those, but he's trotzdem a legend. It also gave some good food there.

👹 This coming week, there's a holiday called "Christi Himmelfahrt" also known as Ascension in English. For some reason, the German men here take this holiday and turn it into the exact opposite thing as what it actually means, and basically drink their lives away hahaha. It gets to the point where it's too dangerous for us to go out, so we are gonna do some service in the morning and then go chill at home and read the Book of Mormon or something, do some sprach and call it a holiday. Maybe we'll get some alcohol free beer or something to celebrate the Ascension of Christ like a real German.

👹 Only fun, we won't do that. Oh  I forgot to mention something last week. Me and Elder Noland had a 45 minute discussion (argument) about whether an insect is an animal. He's pretty firm in his belief that an insect is an animal, and I call bull. Anyway, that was quite the discussion. Probably interesting for the Germans in the tram with us hearing two Americans discuss with each other whether an insect is an animal (which it's not).

👹 Anyways yeah that kind of sums up how things go around here. Elder Noland finally beat me again in chess, it was an intense match that's for sure.

👹 Well have a wonderful week I guess, bye
