This is a photo of Reese at the Chemnitz Innenstadt, the weekly market in the middle of the city:
Reese reported on visiting with several investigators and on an FHE with some ward members and recent converts that he said was a “fun way to finish P-day.” He also said on Wednesday they had a district meeting at which he “gave a short spiritual though in German. That was pretty tough. Then I went on my first Tausch, or exchange. I went with Elder Rückaure to Mitweida. It was pretty fun and we met with a cool potential investigator. We talked all about the Church and Elder Rückaure, a native, was able to answer all of his questions. Good thing he was native. Elder Rückaure is really cool too.” Friday, he wrote, “was a really good day. We started out going to the Tierpark [the Zoo] again, and did some more service. I think the Elders in Chemnitz have always done service there. We went to McDonald's after because we had coupons. My first American fast food since I have left haha. I ate a lot, but it was tasty.” Saturday, he said, was “not as good” because “3 of our 4 appointments fell through.” He then said that “Sunday Church was good. I passed the sacrament. I slowly understand more and more. We went with [a member family] to their house for dinner. It was a traditional German meal--Rotkohl, Knödeln, and a big turkey leg. It was pretty good, but so much food. I wasn't able to eat it all, probably because I was sick and my stomach shrank. Dessert was this interesting custard thing. It was still good. The boys [in the family] are really cool. We played Skip Bo with them for a little, then went to the Uni[versity] for some potentials. Not much luck there, except we were able to give a BoM to someone. That was pretty cool. He read the introduction right in front of us.” As Reese wrote his email, he noted that “[a] lot of the Elders from our Zone are here in the Internet Cafe. I am not sure what we are all going to do, but it will be fun.” Finally, Reese said: “It is fun to be learning German and more about the gospel.” Overall, it sounded like a positive week.
