Somehow, it always seems to rain on District P-Day


Today we have planned to go to a lake nearby and see a castle, but of course it is raining. Will we let a little water falling from the sky disturb our plans? Of course not! Sometimes I get really itchy to just go somewhere else (I've been in Munich since February, cities are fun, but tiring) so I'm really glad we are headed off to have an adventure today.

This upcoming week Sister Roffler will go to Bern to have the interview to get her visa. Unfortunately, Sister Pingree and I will not get to go with her :( I'm still holding out hope that at some point on my mission I will get to serve in Switzerland. Keep your fingers crossed!

This past week we've been a little sick, but we still managed to do some good work!

H, our investigator from Morocco, is having a hard time right now with the legal proceedings regarding who gets custody of her son. I'm so impressed by her faith though. She always says "I know God loves me" no matter what is going on in her life, she holds on to that sure knowledge of God's love for her.

We were also able to teach W again this week! She has been super busy with her school work, but this week we were able to teach her a lesson with one of the members from the 4th ward there and then she came to church on Sunday! We did splits so Sister Pingree could go to the English speaking ward with her. She also promised us that she will really read her reading assignment :)

One of our other lessons that went really well this week was our lesson with the B family. They are a less active couple in our ward. We taught about how important scripture study is. We asked them if they would like us to make a reading calendar to help them read the scriptures every day and they said yes! It's been amazing to see how much they have progressed since we first started meeting with them.

One thing I have noticed this week is that as a missionary, it is best to be out working. We had to cancel a couple of our appointments because we were sick and while I know that we need to take care of our bodies, it was not very fun to sit at home. I don't think I realized before I came on a mission just how happy it would make me to be out working and helping people come closer to Christ all day, every day.

Ich hab euch lieb. Ich weiß, dass wenn wir das tun, was Gott von uns erwartet, wird er uns segnen.
(I love you. I know that if we do what God expects of us, He will bless us.)

  1. I hope you are feeling better and I am glad that you don't let a little rain mess up any plans :)

    I love the faith of the Sister you are teaching from Morocco and that she knows she is loved and that Lord knows her personally.

    I was also touched by the family that is doing more scripture study. WE have really tried hard to read every night before bed with the kids and then do are own private scripture study and it truly is amazing how much more you feel the spirit and have the strength to meet the challenges that come your way.

    Keep up the great work!!! The lane Family
