Back to the Heat

It has been a pretty good week here in austria! but it has been crazy hot! Ties may look good but they make you twice as hot as everybody else. Because of the heat nobody outside likes us, Plus everybody is taking their 3 week vacations right now so nobobdy is home. But we have done a lot of really good area book work and we set up a few appointments with less actives in our ward, one of which sounds like he really wants to come back to church but just has some questions to be straightened out before he does. He invited us to all you can eat chinese this friday so we hope that will be good. It can't go that bad because there will be chinese food.
Parker apparently tried to send a bunch of pics
but this is the only one we got.
B----- is making a lot of progress. We gave him a blessing to help him with his stress because he has a lot going on right now and he loved it. He has also been doing a really good job of keeping his apartment clean which is really hard for him because of his disabilities. He still hasn't figured out a date quite yet. He really wants his family to be there along with some of his friends so he is trying to figure out how he will do that.
We met with g---- again this friday. It was...... ok. She was really aggressive and thought that we are sexist because there are no women bishops and she wouldn't listen to us at all really. Her concern comes from problems that she has with her overpowering boyfriend so she is sensitive when it comes to womens rights. We also think that one of her problems is that she felt really stongly that the church is true but it would be really hard for her to change her life so she tried to seek out problems in the church to make it seem less true. But that just made her more angry when we helped her understand that the church is in no way sexist so she built a bit of a wall between us. It will probably just take some time before she is willing to listen with good intent again.
We met with a guy named T------  He is probably the laziest speaker ever. he barely even opens his mouth to speak and just mumbles so it was somewhat tough to understand him. But we gave him a book of mormon and he said that he would read it through and he seems sincere and open so we think he will be a good investigator.
Everything else is going really well. We have been having a lot of fun and we are working really hard. It looks like the reunion was really fun and i'm sure that bear lake is awesome! It was nice hearing about stuff! talk to you all next week!
Love you all!
