Elder Summers is going with me to the Alpine mission, sein face ist sehr schön, oder das is was Elder Johnson (in meine Distrikt) hat gesagt. Elder Reed is learning greek, aber es ist schwer. We speak english to each other and help each other practice, but we then go to different classes and are in different districts. Elder Reed is the district leader of the Greek district, and its only him and two sisters in that district. We have a lot of fun together though. Elder Reed seems to have a bottomless appetite for knowlege, I can barely share enough math, science, lord of the rings, star wars, song lyrics, book plots, and video game histories to satisfy him, surprisingly. I still have a few facts up my wrinkly sleeve, though, so I'll be able to hold him off, probably. I'm still enjoying classes, although it gets hard to concentrate sometimes. We don't unfortunately get to speak german all day, but we do as much as we can. We teach "investigators" in pure German though, which is really fun. We have one untersücher that is Muslim, and disagrees with everything that we say. Es ist schon spas auch.
Our P-day is on Wednesday, and we usually email, do laundry, play football (soccer, we're in England, remember ^_^), get a haircut, or go to the store. we also go to the temple in the mornings most P-days in the MTC, and the Preston temple is sehr shön, it is a medium sized temple, but they use two rooms for the endowment, as opposed to the just one in small temples. Its also got this great marble and gold theme going, all the floors and walls are made out of marble or a really nice dark wood, and everything else is pure gold, or it looks like it. If the church has pictures of the inside, you should take a look! It might be the most beautiful I've ever seen.
I've learned to pray in German now too! Zum Beispiel, "that I will be able to learn the language and have the spirit with me on my mission." would be something like "Bitte hilf mich Deutsch zu lernen, und bitte segne uns mit deinem Geist"
Anyways, just a scripture before I go, I found it while preparing to teach an "Investigator" that was Muslim.
"34 Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true;"
"35 And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge, and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God. "
Have fun! Auf wiedersehen!
