It's been another great week in Wien and I can't believe it's time again to write. Really the days fly by so quickly. It seems we're always running from appointment to appointment and next thing I know another week has passed by. So crazy! So my apartment is special. We're a four Sisters apartment, meaning we have two companionships! It is SO much fun. The other Sisters serve in the Wien 1st Ward and are really great. Sister L is on her last transfer (she started out in the Berlin Mission but they called and asked her about three months ago and said the Lord really needed her in Wien... in a completely different mission. How crazy is that?!) and Sister J is about 10 months in. They both speak really good German and are really fun to be around. Our apartment is decent sized, one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, and living room. The funny story about that is that we have bunk beds in our bedrooms but they're so squeeky the Sisters before me couldn't sleep. So they moved all the mattresses out to the living room. So we have a sleepover, pangea bed night every night which isn't bad at all. I think the EP (Ehe Paar - missionary couple) has been meaning to get over and fix them but it's been a couple months haha. But, even with four beds and four desks in our little living room, we manage well enough. Honestly, we really don't spend much time there so it's not that big of a deal.
My companion is 21 from AF, UT and studied Biomedical Engineering for 3 years before coming out here. I cover all of the English speakers in all of Vienna so my area covers like half of Austria. Over 2 million people live in my area. haha Inside my area boundaries, we have about 20-ish German speaking missionaries. So it's way cool.We have a bunch of investigators but the main ones right now are: J, C and L, R and A. J is from Peru and speaks no English. She speaks Spanish and so we use Sister G in our ward (she speaks like 5 languages) to translate for us as we teach her. Her Baptism is scheduled for July 7 but, we think we'll have to move it back because she might be working. C and L are from Ghana and have 3 children under 8. Very Christian and are kind, sweet people. R is 19 and is African but, he grew up in England and has lived in Wien for the last 3 years. He's super awesome and is totally ready for the Gospel. A is 20 and has a boyfriend and a 2 year old daughter back in Romania. A and her boyfriend really want to get married but, they can't until their Visa comes through and they don't have enough money to travel all the way back to Romania to get married so they call each other husband and wife and act like a married couple. We had a baptismal date for her because we thought she was married but, then that came out and she's not willing to live the Law of Chastity. So we'll have to wait until her Visa comes in! Hopefully, very soon! We have others but those are the big ones we've been meeting with alot.
P.S. I found out it only takes like 1 week or so for letters (if you send them to my address) and 2 weeks for me to get a package haha ;)
