To answer to your question, the office...
It is so great! I love it here, the environment is so great, the other three elders are so funny! Basically Monday to Friday 10-5 the office is open, just like any other office, and then after five we can go out and do missionary work. We are teaching quite a few people, but I've not gotten to know many yet. My position is more or less supplies, and what I do is basically anything that isn't tickets or finance. That means everything from cars, mail, orders, to drivers liscences. We don't deal with visas and stuff like that, and I don't think we do apartments either. Otherwise we BOTH are still learning what our job is, and writing it down so people will know in the future. We do kind of trade off comps, actually we are a four man companionship, and we trade off who goes to which lessons. Like i said, I love it so much! Elder Meiners and I are super similar.
The appartment is right next door to the office (next door in the building), and its pretty big. The four office elders in the apartment are me, Elder Meiners, Elder Leinberger, Elder Stähle. So far we're all great with each other.
Man, the time has been flying by since coming here to the office! I can't believe it's allready been a week since our last pday!
Here in the office it's definately diffferent on different days. Our job is basically, in addition to all the vehicle and supply and device stuff, to do all the other random stuff that pops up. That means we do a lot of crazy stuff! Like helping sister Kohler. Usually it's lessons or other field trips in the morning, then we come back in the afternoon and evening and enter in whatever needs to be entered into the computer, and then we take care of packages and other stuff around the office. I guess we could be better organized though.
I'm definately learning things about myself here, like what I might enjoy doing one day as a career.
We're going to be getting the missionary christmas packages ready for everyone. We've already recieved two packages (one a week ago, and one today), so it's already starting!
The three hours for procelyting are sometimes not enough. We usually go during the day to lessons as well, and when we don't manage to get the office work done then we do that in the evening, since we were teachign lessons all morning.
We are more or less teaching everyone who needs to be taught though, it helps to have four missionaries. The other ward's elders can help, but I don't think they need to usually.
The november date for P will probaly have to be moved back, since he's not been coming to church, but we had a really great lesson on Friday with a member, where we discovered that his month ticket can get him to the church by nine on Sundays, which means he hopefully will come this week!
I'm lookiing forward to going to the flea market again this week! And to getting another package through customs at leibzig this week (customs are rediculous!).
