November 9th

Well folks,
Sad to say that our dear friend Nan is heading back to Bochum this Saturday.  It is very bittersweet.  It is sad because we love her.  Not only because we meet every day, but also because we have become best friends.  We spent basically all of our p-day together today.  She will leave a huge hole in our hearts, but we are going to keep in contact.  She will be baptized in Bochum on the 28 of November is the plan.  And she should have no problem making that as long as she meets with the missionaries and goes to church when she gets there.  Which she is nervous about it but we are coaching her through it.  It is really good though that she is going back now so she can get to know the ward there before her baptism.  It will really help her.  Unfortunately we will not be able to go.  It is about 5 hours away by bus and isn't even in our mission.  But we will be there in Spirit.  She is going to have one of the greatest experiences of her life.  We talked with her the other day about the Temple and talked about how she can help others come to the knowledge that she now has and she was really excited about it.  She is also excited to go home and help all her friends to meet with the missionaries.  They will just love her there.  She just gets it.  We will seriously miss her.  But it is better for her.  She can't get baptized here due to the fact that she has no house here.  She is going to go back eventually and after prayer we feel that she needs to go back.  It is really good.  Today was our last p-day with her and we went to a castle and walked around and took a lot of pictures.  She is awesome.  We will meet with her until Friday, she goes home on Saturday.  But then her Boyfriend will have more time to meet with us.  haha.  We ate Chinese food with them on Saturday and it tasted really good.  Chinese food in America is not real Chinese food.  We had a wonderful time together.
We also had  great time at MLC this week.  We learned a lot from President and we are trying to improve ourselves so that we can be better missionaries.  It was very uplifting and I am so glad that we were able to go.  In the morning we played some sport with the other missionaries.  We played Foosball and it was wonderful.  I am terrible because I haven't played in so long.  But after we played some touch rugby as well.  The grass was wet and I slipped and did a total belly flop.  My shirt can prove it.  It was fun though.  It was nice to see the other missionaries as well. 
Things are great here.  Our people are progressing and even though Nan is leaving us we still have a lot to do.  We are working hard and I am so grateful for your love and support.  I hope you have a wonderful week!!!!  Love you!!!
