Walking in a Winter Wonderful
Elder Mazzei and I had a wonderful week this week. We were able to meet with one of our investigators from Africa, and he bore powerful testimony of the changing affect of the Book of Mormon on a person's life. It was astounding to see how someone who is not even part of the church can recognize that God speaks to us, has always spoken to us, and will always speak to us, and that we are continually getting revelation today from the Lord in order to be able to bring to all His children the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I HAVE MORE GOOD NEWS! I also had an INCREDIBLE experience! Ever since I read the book, The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, I've wondered what the treat Turkish Delight tastes like, because C.S. Lewis makes it sound like the most delicious thing ever. Well, news flash, IT'S INCREDIBLE! XD Elder Mazzei and I were going by on people for the bishop, and we needed to use the restroom, so we stopped by a turkish candy shop and the owner let us use the restroom for free. I don't know how many of you have been to Europe but using the bathroom for free anywhere outside of your house in Europe is a once in a lifetime MIRACLE. XD So we bought candy to say thank you, and I was not disappointed at all. The Turkish man there was super open to the gospel too, so we would like to go back sometime to buy more sweets and talk with him some more.
On the fourth of July, I was on exchanges with Elder Potter, and we went to Neukoelln to meet up with a guy I had found in our contacts. Not only did we find two baseball fields in Neukoelln (nowhere to be found otherwise in Germany), but we also stumbled upon the memorial for Gale Halvorson, the Candy Bomber! It was so cool. And the place we were in in Neukoelln looked a lot like parts of Utah I had been in. And the craziest part about it all is that we had all these American experiences is that they all happened on the FOURTH OF JULY! XD crazy...
We also had the wonderful opportunity of being able to go to the temple on Saturday and do a session. What a blessing the temple is. If you haven't found time to go in a while, I would invite you all to go. It is such a blessing. :)
Today Elder Mazzei and I went to Potsdam again to see castles again.
Something that Elder Mazzei and I have been doing lately is meeting with members who've invited friends to eat with us. It's been a wonderful opportunity to talk about the gospel and about life in general in a very natural setting conducive to conversation.
I think that's all for this week.
I know that when you Look for the Lord you will find Him. :) He's waiting for you.
