Well, it's a beautiful, cool morgen in Deutschland, and I'm chilling in a little shop, with a sniff (as dad would say) of cigarette smoke, writing to you all!!
Oh, where to begin!! It's been a complete whirlwind, but an awesome one at that!
I'll start at getting to Germany, because I honestly can't remember before that... just lots of packing at the MTC.
Sothe 28th was traveling- all day.
It's kind of crazy that right now ALL of the sisters are training- my trainer is now just in her third transfer, and that's pretty normal as there are just lots of us here. But she knows everything, so I'm lucky.
And then had a meeting with the GML, which is their ward mission leader. It's sweet to have that direct connection to the members here and our investigators.
We're going to see the Brandenburg Gate this afternoon, along with that famous column that's in the city square, type place. I'm so excited!
It's been a blessing being here already. Ha, although I don't understand much, nor can I speak much, or know my way around, but I feel comfortable here. I don't know how else to explain it, but I do. And the few things that I am already able to understand, I know it's because of my Father in Heaven, it's not me. Most of all, I'm so blessed to be here! I have an amazing trainer, amazing leaders here, and the people here are just the best. Blunt yes, haha, but awesome.
Well I love you all!! Thanks for all of the support, truly! And sorry if this email is scatter brained, I feel like brain isn't all organized quite yet, ha, so sorry.
Fun Things about Germany/ Mission I've noticed so far:
-Chocolate. OH MY. It is amazing. I will find a way to send some home!
-The mission president is pretty chill with what we can listen to, so we've been running our Frozen DVD in German non-stop. Made me think of little Nali when "Let it Go" came on.
-Buses, Grocery Stores- just silent.No one talks to eachother. Just a German cultural thing. Ha, it's pretty funny. And we get a lot of fun looks with our tags too.
-All the windows here open outwards, or inwards at the tops. I always think I'm breaking them everytime I open one.
´-The sun sets atin the afternoon, so I worry that we seem like creepers, trying to stop people on the streets in the dark. But it just adds another fun element to the work.
-Our little apartment is right near the airport, so we have huge 737 right over our place every 10 minutes or so. I think it's pretty sweet, actually
