Since Sister Wadsworth is leaving, things have been super crazy these days. Our schedule is packed full but we won't complain about that at all! We are really lucky to have so many members who love having us over and taking care of us. I have started teaching Margerette Reißig piano, so that has been really fun.
Erik is doing really really well! His mom is also making a lot of progress and will be going to the temple this month. I love seeing how excited and motivated she is to make this next step. We meet with them at least once a week and she always makes us something to eat and then explains exactly how to make it haha. I love how down to earth she is and also what a great mother she is to Erik.
We met with the Telidis family twice this week! Sister Telidis' parents were in town, so we ate lunch all together and then taught the family. We also met yesterday and got to teach while Sister Telidis' husband was there. He is greek orthodox and we talked a lot about how our religions vary and how they are also similar. We just really like him a lot! He LOVES having the missionaries over and we love this family. It was also interesting because when we got there and were just causually sitting around talking, a priest walked right in with a bucket of water and an olive branch and got our heads all wet and blessed us.
We had a short but great appointment with Sela. It is quite an adventure even getting out to her house. And then we thought we were going to be stranded there until 10 at night..but thankfully a bus came and we made it safely home! She has been reading the Book of Mormon all on her own and even highlighted it and asked us a ton of great questions! We found out that Patrick is actually a member and her brother is also a member. She is sincerely searching for truth and I pray that we will be able to continue teaching with the Spirit so that she can recognize that it is the truth!
I had a cool experience on an ubahn earlier this week. We were just sitting there on our way to an appointment and a girl sat next to me. I just felt like I should talk to her but I honestly didn't really feel like it because we were soaking wet and exhausted and running late to an appointment, but I really felt like I should, so I did. All I did was tell her that I liked her ring and then we got a whole conversation going from there! She is from palestine and is here studying all by herself. She doesn't speak German and has been here for 4 months and she told me I was the first person to ever talk to her on an ubahn-yay for being a missionary! She said she would love to meet with us and is interested in learning more, so I hope we get an appointment with her sometime this week!
Today we are going to Bonn to hike to some ruins of a castle for Sister Wadsworth's last pday. I am going to miss her a ton and am nervous for the change, but I think it will all be good! She has taught me well and now I get to teach!
Love you all!
