Someone is putting on a little weight!
Hello again!
Another week is gone just like that!? Darn. Time goes by way too quick out here. I don't even know what day it is sometimes. It was a pretty good week though! It is starting to get pretty cold here but it hasn't snowed yet. They say that it doesn't snow too bad in Konstanz because we are so low down and close to the lake but it is already way cold! All that snow looks like a lot of fun! We had a pretty good snowball fight while we were leaving the church in St. Gallen because there is a good amount of snow there and that was pretty fun.
From the pictures, it looks like everybody is doing pretty well and having a lot of fun like always! Those kids look bigger and bigger every week! I bet that everybody is having fun with the christmas stuff starting up and being able to eat candy canes and watch christmas movies all the time. We went on a walk with some members and their friends yesterday after lunch, and we walked into the woods a bit where santa claus was and he was giving all of the kids cookies and stuff. It was pretty fun and festive. We are also getting a lot of invites for the holiday season! We don't know exactly what we will be doing to skype but I will make sure to let you know exactly what is happening.
This week we will have a christmas conference in zurich with all of the missionaries in switzerland and we will have a white elephant party, and have a real spiritual christmas conference. That is also when they will be delivering the christmas packages so no worries. I will get it this friday for sure.
We had a pretty cool lesson this week. We found this guy a few weeks ago and we have been trying to make contact with him for a while and we finally got an appointment set up for last friday. We asked him what his expectations where from us and why he wanted to meet. He told us that he has been searching for a long time to find answers to his questions about God but he couldn't ever ask because he lived in muslim countries until about six months ago. He has been writing down his questions for years and we were already able to answer some of them. He was so happy to find people who have the answers to his questions and he just got excited about it. It was pretty cool and we will meeting with him this week.
We also found these two kids playing basketball outside of a school so we asked if we could play, and although basketball has never been one of my strong points, it is ok because I am in europe and they are worse here. We had fun kicking there butts and they will be bringing some friends to play this saturday. It was pretty fun and we hope that we can make it a pretty regular thing.
I took some pictures of the city and of the lake last monday so I will make sure to send them if this computer doesn't get to angry at me this week.
Overall, the last week was way awesome and exhausting as well! We are working really hard and setting high goals everyday. We listen to a lot of christmas music at home to, so we are getting excited for the season, just not for the snow. It will be pretty cold.
Well I will make sure to let you know about the whole skyping situation so that we can talk in a few weeks! I hope that you all have an awesome week! stay safe with all that snow on the roads! I will talk to you all next week!
