Week 41 April 4th, 2016

Hey everyone!

Well this week was... Interesting... But conference was great as always. Loved it all!!

Well let's get to it!

Monday started off with a BANG. Elder Peterson and Matis spent the night because we were gonna do an exchange the next morning. Now, here is where things get crazy. I normally let Elder Rogers cut my hair, and he does a good job, but Peterson has been bragging ALL WEEK about how many good hair cuts he has given. So I said what the heck why not.. So I am sitting patiently throughout the haircut and we are near the end. The next thing I know is: "Oh my gosh!!!" I thought it was a big joke at first, however after seeing the facial expressions of Elder Rogers and Elder Matis, I knew it was far from a joke. I hopped off my stool and sprinted as fast as I could to the closest mirror and I saw it.... ONE. HUGE. SHAVED. LINE. RIGHT DOWN THE SIDE OF MY HEAD. I was honestly speechless... If it weren't for Elder Petersons hysterical laugh, I would be outraged. But when you hear it, it just makes your day 100x better gosh dangit. And it's too short to cut all the way around still. So I have been wearing a hat all week and taking lots of fish oil pills. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise because I heard those pills are mega healthy.

ANYWAYS! Tuesday we went up to Oldenburg and played indoor soccer. I miss soccer so much. And being in shape because I was absolutely dying. 

Wednesday we had our last district meeting of the transfer because next week we have zone training meeting. Crazy how fast these last 6 weeks have gone by! Hopefully our district won't change too much..

The rest of the week we tried to get the work rolling but its tough. Not a lot happening right now so we really need to figure something out. I am grateful for conference this week, I really needed it. I felt like so many of the talks were directed for me specifically and how I myself can be better for now and for the future, as well as helping these members and people of Germany as best I can. I feel like sometimes these people just simply aren't doing the simple things that can make big differences in their lives. Huge example, coming to church. COME. TO. CHURCH. This is where Elder Miller is learning patience. Regardless, I love these stingy, cranky people, and just like Elder Mervyn B. Arnold said, I will never give up on any of them, no matter what:)
