Germany European Soccer Tournaments
So unfortunately, we have very little time at all for emails. I promise I will send a postcard home explaining more of what's been going on but I only have about ten minutes right now before we have to take a train and go.

This week we meet with Familie Bobi and talked about rescheduling their baptisimal date because we all felt  that we should wait a while longer. Next time we meet with them we will be able to plan out a date. They are however, still really excited about their baptisms and you can really see how the gospel has already made a huge influence in their lives. They miss Elder Field but they really like Elder Young a lot too and for them it was a confirmation that no matter who the missionaries are, that they all bring with them the spirit of the Lord (if they are doing what they are supposed to) and know that what we have is the most important message they can receive.

Last week we went to the Dachau concentration camp and that was a very sobering experience. This week we went as a district to Chiemsee which is a giant lake with an island in the middle where King Ludwig II (the guy who built Neuschwanstein) built another one of his many castles. It was a very good day for wearing Lederhosen.

There has only been three days in June so far where it hasn't rained here in Rosenheim, but when it doesn't you can really notice how humid and hot it is.

We got permission from Elder Miles this last week to watch the Germany Soccer games whenever they play during this European tournament going on right now. President Miles really likes sports, this tournament only happens every 4 years, and hardly any mission work can be done while its going on because everybody is watching it so that's why he said we could too. Germany is doing well, their next game is against Italy in the semi-finals. It's hard to sleep at night here because there are a lot of parties in the streets at night after they win the games.

Well I've got to go, I will talk to you all later.

Elder Bodily
Gott sei mit euch bis aufs wiedersehen
