Zone Conference with Area Seventy Elder Charles and his wife.  He taught in Berlin and Hamburg.  This is the Hamburg Zone Conference.

We met with probably the most famous investigator up here in the north.  She is Polish and she loves to cook food for the missionaries.  The bad thing was that me and Elder Glissmeyer were in Hamburg just before because he had a doctor appointment and we decided to eat there.  So we weren't really that hungry.  The other elders that were with us each weigh about 130 pounds so neither of them can eat that much.  I'm happy to say that we did finish th soup and all the polish dish that she made.  But that was probably the most food I have ate in my life!  She is a really nice lady and funny fact is that she absolutely loves Cuba.  She goes there once a year.  This time she brought back a shirt of the Cuba Rebel for my companion.  It looks pretty funny but it's pretty much a shirt supporting communism, so he needs to be selective when to wear it! 

Stacey and Elder Glissmeyer, he goes home this transfer and we had a killer exchange!

We have driven everywhere for appointment, exchanges, and all that.  However, bad news for the companion ran into a smile pole and it totally bent the axel to our car in in the auto repair for  a week.  That was sad.  We did get to go to Wacken.  For those of you who don't know, its a little town of less than 2,000 people.  But it's also home to the world biggest outdoor heavy metal concert.  75,000 people come to this place every year, it's nuts, everyone knows about it.  It had been going on for 24 years now and tickets for next year are all sold out.  So we had to stop in a shop and get some t-shirts there.

 We taught a couple of people this week.  One of them is really making progress and we are working on getting him to do the basics, ya know, scripture study, prayer, and coming to church.  Church was fun this week...nobody was there and I gave a talk and played the organ.  We also did a lot of service for some members and afterwards they fed us some good German food.
