Monday we went to the Doko Zentrum. It's a museum about the War, and Hitler, and such.. The design looked a lot like the Holocaust musuem in D.C. except that it is locacted right were stuff was going down! Lesson Learned: Accept people for who they are. We are all different, that's what makes the world such an interesting place!
Tuesday we were able to teach Ozal. He is awesome! He is from Istanbul. He speaks Turkish, Greek, and (not very much) English. Unfortunately, I don't speak Turkish or Greek.... you could see how this might be a problem. But no fear Google Translate came to our rescue! That website is legit :) I could just type everything in and press a button and a lovely robot lady would say it aloud in Greek! It turned out to be an amazing lesson! Lesson Learned: Technology rocks. When used correctly, it can be used for so much good!
Wednesday I went to Coburg on a split with Sister Goodrich. Man that place is gorgeous. We had the opportunity to talk to some students at the Technical school. This made me realize that this is the first fall since 2000 that I haven't started school! Lesson Learned: I am able to sleep on an Bahn, Bus, or Train! A very useful skill haha.
Thursday I had my first Coburger (I'll send a pic) Lesson Learned: Coburgers are delicious.
Friday we were on the go all day long! And everyone wanted to feed us. We had breakfast with one lady we are teaching then at our next appointment we were surprised with fries and chicken wings! Yummm :) And then we had a super fun party with the young women in our ward. Let's just say there was Veggimite involved..... (The pictures really say it all) Lesson Learned: Veggimite is not a plesant smell... and the smell increased when you wash it off...
Saturday we surprised a member for her 60th birthday! She is just the sweetest lady and I'll never forget the smile on her face when the Lindgrens, Elder Ward, Elder Allen, Sister Madsen, and I walked in with flowers singing happy birthday! Lesson Learned: It's the little things in life that mean the most.
I love y'all! Remember, it all boils down to love. Love for our neighbor, love for our family, love for ourselves, love for our Father in Heaven.
I wish you all a Joy filled week!
