Directly from the email:
This week was pretty good. We have a less active member that we are working with on coming to church. He has been looking at anti literature on the internet. We can tell it's eating at him, but he won't admit it. He's a great guy, though.. Oh! I meant to tell you every Saturday morning we play socer with a bunch of guys from all over the world that work at embassies or are generals stationed here. Our branch president works for the US embassy, so that's how we were invited. It has brought a teaching opportunity, he is a German diplomat!. It is really fun playing with all these guys and establishing friendships with them..
