German General Confernece

Hey everyone

General conference was amazing! I got to listen to it in English (yeah
for my Muttersprache) I still can't believe we have three new
apostles! They seemed to mention following the Holy Ghost a lot and
keeping the sabbath day holy. I still haven't watched Sunday
afternoon since the time zones are so crazy. I always find it funny
how there seem to be overarching themes in each conference even though
it not planed.

This week was a little chaotic, in stake conference they kept saying
how much of a blessing it was to have missionaries in your home.
Suddenly we had a lot of member appointments. Hmmm wonder if there's a
connection there.... Our members here are great I love them all. We
visited a member that lives pretty far away. At the end we asked if
there was anything we could do to help him. He looked at us straight
in the eye then said " you can do missionary work in my town" I was
expecting something boring like "I need help moving boxes" but no, he
just wants us to do what we do every day just in his town every so
often. No problem we can do that.

Where going to try to start a gospel principles class so that our
investigators and new converts get a good solid foundation. All we
need is just approval from our branch president. I'm excited but super
scared to be teaching a class in German. I can understand the book in
German (after reading the chapter three times in English....) but I
have no clue how to teach in German. Let's just say I might be
inviting a lot of member to come to help answer anyone's questions.

Fun story, we missed our train to get home from General conference
last night, so we had to wait another hour for the next one. We got
home about 11:20 pm last night. I'm just loads of energy today.
Loads... :|
