April 21, 2014

Hey hey hey!

Happy Easter everyone! I had a good one here in Germany. A lot of stuff is the same (Easter bunny, chocolate bunnies, eggs, colored eggs....) but there is some kinda different stuff. Karfreitag (Good Friday) is like the holiest of German holidays... so we weren't supposed to really proselyte on that day. But we visited a member and her husband and had grüne soße, a dish that a lot of Germans make on Grün Donnerstag. It's basically sour cream mixed with some herbs and some hard-boiled egg and served over potatoes... it's pretty good. They don't eat meat on that day, or those days, I don't really have it all figured out. But then on Easter Sunday we went to a family's house after church and ate the Easter bunny! Haha we had rabbit... it was interesting. Really good though. And then today we were at a member’s house again and had Schnitzel.

But yeah, that was all a lot of fun. There isn't a super huge load of new info to share... basically just trying to make stuff happen. It's a challenging situation here, but I'm having fun. We had a street display in Friedberg on Saturday morning and it was really fun. We had a table set up for kids to draw Easter pictures and we had a TV playing Mormon messages... it was cool. Not a whole lot of tangible success, but it was a lot of fun and it's basically good whenever we're out in public here. And we had it on the main street in Friedberg which is really nice and there were a bunch of fruit carts and other food vendors out so it was really fun.

But yeah that's honestly about it. I hope everyone had a great Easter and knows I love them!!!

But anyways, love you guys!!
