Hello Kinder Eier
Also, na? We had a pretty legendary week, as usual here on the Havel. I'd say the highlight had to be Friday, interview day. We got up bright and early with our wonderful new haircuts, and got dressed all nice to look pretty for President Fingerle. He looked quite nice with his new haircut as well, might I add. Well, when we were at the train station ready to head back to a great city, we notice not only our train was delayed 30 minutes, but it had a notice by it saying, "not stopping at: _____, _____, _____, and Brandenburg."
So, we had to ride it to Potsdam and get off there to sleep overnight with the Elders there, because we were literally stuck. We then found out that a tree had fallen over on the tracks, because of some severe weather (Unwetter) there. There were small tornados and microbursts... We even were blessed with a call from the Hof Elders (Connor Noland, der teufel & Swag daddy Hansen) asking if we were safe, because they had heard about the weather in Brandenburg. So that was pretty fun and exciting.

I was privileged to give a talk yesterday in Sacrament meeting, my first from my mission actually. I thought it went fairly well, until afterwards when my sweet caring companion roasted my german. Alles klar though, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?🙁
We had a pretty neat service project on Saturday where we all stood as living bait to be eaten alive by mosquitoes, quite a good time. No, we did some good stuff though as we removed obstacles in these mini creeks to help the water go through. We were also blessed with some potato salad (Elder Oliver's favorite) at the end.
Well, let’s switch it up. Try reading in the Bible and the Book of Mormon this week, good idea huh? Cool.
Oh, and I didn’t want to forget to thank you for all of your prayers for my niece, Eva. The surgery was a success, and she is recovering fast and got to go home from the hospital two days earlier than expected.
