Halloween Week

Well this week has been so full of wonderful things I don't even know where to start.  Basically it is really all about N..  She is amazing if I haven't mentioned it before.  She is so ready to hear about the gospel and she is making so much progress in just the week and a half since we have met her.  She is so wonderful.  I love her.  And we get to see her every day!!!  It is just the best.  We are working on getting her in contact with the missionaries in Bochum where she lives so that when she goes back she knows who they are and isn't so surprised and everything.  We talked with her today about that.  She has had almost all of the lessons. We are just teaching her the Word of Wisdom this week and a few other things.  But she really just accepts things really well. But not in a way that she is just blindly following.  She likes to study the topics before hand so that we can have a discussion. And she basically teaches us and just asks us the things she didn't understand.  She is so prepared.  We just have to figure out a few things so that she can be baptized either here or in Bochum.  We set a date with her though!!!  It is going to be the 28 of November most likely.  We just don't know the location yet. Never had that problem before.  haha. We are working closely with our Mission President so that we can make things happen.  It is going to be a wonderful day when she is baptized.  She is really amazing.
We are also going to meet with her boyfriend this week and get his date reset.  He has been really busy with work because one of his coworkers is leaving and even though he has no experience he has to take over his work load.  So he is trying to learn all the things for his coworkers job.  So he has been really busy.  We hope he will have time for us this week though.  He is also really wonderful.  They both came to a baptism of one of the kids in the ward this past weekend.  And they both just loved it.  They also both fasted for the past Sunday and really want to follow the things that we are teaching.  The great thing is that even though S isn't meeting with us right now, N tells him everything that she learns and he tries to learn things from when he has some spare time in the evening.  So he is doing ok, we just need to help him come back to us a little.  haha.  
We also met with a new man this week.  We met him a few weeks ago at his door. We gave him a book of Mormon and he said he would take it but most likely not really read it.  We went back this past week and he is in 1 Nephi 10.  He said he thinks it is interesting and wants to read the whole thing.  We are hopefully going back this week.  :)  He is really cool.  He has a catholic background and wants to learn more. He doesn't believe that the catholic church is true.  He is wonderful.
Frau B is doing good.  Just kind of at a standpoint right now.  Her family now has book of Mormons and some of them are reading.  She just doesn't want to come to church and take the next step, but she is reading the book. So that is really good.  We are just hoping that she comes to church this next week.  
On Halloween we were with a member and normally there are not that many kids out trick or treating here since Halloween isn't the biggest holiday here.  But they ran out of candy since last year no one really came.  It was funny.  They were rummaging through their pantry for candy.  But some of the kids were not dressed up.  They just knocked on the door for candy... Really funny actually.  But we had a good time with them there.  We ate Leberkäse.  You can google that.  It tastes really good.  It is kind of like American hot dogs but waaaaaaay better.  It was a really good Halloween.  Next year will be strange.  
There are so many other blessing that have happened this week.  Really you can see the hand of the Lord in your life if you just look for it.  I love you all and hope that you have a wonderful week!!!  Try to talk to someone about God this week and help them know that He loves them.  I love you all!!!
