Chinese Food in Germany

I went on a split with our zone leader this week. That was cool to see
him in action. Elder Crittenden celebrated his year mark, and got
transferred to coburg. He leaves on Wednesday. My new companion is
Elder Blau..... Hmmmm interesting name and that about all I know of
him. I'm excited that I get to spend more time in Paderborn. The
branch here is amazing. We had quite a few member appointments this
week. It's great that I can now understand all of our members.
(Including the older ones that I swear speak a different German) I'm
getting to the point where I can understand a lot, but at the same
time I tried to street contact and someone asked me what language I
was speaking..... Hmmmm might have to work on the accent.

We got to teach this guy in the area who says he doesn't want to be
Mormon, but he asked us about our view on the after life so we'll
answer. We had a member present and she not a great testimony, she
shared a bit about her conversion and how at first she didn't want to
be a member either. Hopefully our next meeting will go good.

For Pday we went to a Chinese buffet. They had peanut sauce! I forgot
how much I love that stuff!!

Sorry for the short email this week I'll try to write more next week.
Any question or writing prompts?

This week while studying charity I realized how important it is and to
receive it we just have to pray. (Moroni 7 is a great chapter to read
about it, especially the last five or so verses)

Thanks for all your prayers and emails
