North German Beaches!

 Moin moon!
This week was a pretty good one!  We found a family and they are super awesome and really interested.   We actually knocked on their house about 2 weeks ago and we exchanged phone numbers after finding out  that the Mom actually was best friends with a member when they were both younger and she went to primary activities with her and church as well.  So we called her this week and made an appointment.  Her son and daughter were there too.  They are 15 and 16 years old.  Her husband was at work, but it was a great lesson.  The kids even said they wanted to come to church again and the mom was like yeah, your guy's church is much better than ours.  At yours anyone can speak and it's much more lively.  The mom has knee surgery this week, but we are going to meet again in a week or so.  They said they would read in the Book of Mormon and pray about it too!  Hopefully  everything goes well for them.  We taught another investigator but it mostly involved my companion fixing her computer.

Most of this week was actually service, but that's okay because service is good too, and Jesus served lots of people while he was on the earth.  Most of our service was preparing for our ward party which was a huge success!  We went Watt Wandern (German word) in another huge tourist city Busum.  There is no translation for that, but in the beaches by the North Sea, the tide recedes really far.  Because of that, when the tide is out, you can walk across kilometers of "Watt".  It is a typical North German thing and lots of people were there.  We brought a football with us as well and tried to teach all the kids how to play, but Germans don't really understand how to throw one.   There were a ton of less actives there (5) but that's a lot cause this branch is tiny.  We dug up a big worm which was kinda freaky but also kinda cool and all the kids had a blast there!  Plus we had a barbecue afterwards and I ate so much steak and good food.

In case you are wondering, we actually went to 2 beaches this week.  The St. Peter Ording Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Germany.  Wow that was gorgeous!  And the second one was in Busum, another really popular one.  Sadly, it's not beach weather soon but we might go up to one in Busum on a PDay because it's close.  This week we have Stacey, the polish lady who feeds us so much food.  I will let you know how it goes.  Have a good week everybody!
