T-4 days till the temple


Well this week was just fantastic. Again, we met with our favorite Russians, and were treated with some very nice Russian food (and tons of it). And had with them a nice little lesson on prayer and how they do it as Muslims and we told them how we do it, but all in all we had a grand time. We're looking forward to our next lesson with them

Our next legendary family also invited us over this week--the Arabic one. We came over and nobody was home, but the kids were out on their bikes, so we went and asked them where everybody was. Since they had also no idea, we went to the Spielplatz and played a game of soccer in which the little boys destroyed us both. Afterwards, we went and checked and the rest of the family was there, so we got to say hi and make out an appointment for them not to forget this time.

We also met with another couple people this week, nothing too crazy eventful though. We finally caught our friend from Africa who had a lot of potential and we were able to finally make an appointment out with him, so we're pumped about that one.

So it's finally here!

This Friday we are making the trip out to Freiberg for the temple!!! I'm super excited, but it's really about the new convert and not too much about us, but we're still pumped, because neither of us has been in the temple since we got to the mission a loooonngggg time ago (for him). You will hear alllll about that next week for sure, don't be too excited.

That's about it for the week to be deadly honest. Today we went out to Oranienburg, where the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp is, and my oh my that was neat. It was crazy to read all the stories about the people who were murdered here, and people who escaped barely--neat stuff. I will drop some pictures here for your enjoyment.
