Let's put a wasp in the freezer...

Hey, thanks for deciding to send a package, it is always appreciated. Yeah, this new place Bad Homburg is pretty sweet, my comp, Elder Braithwaite, from Highland, UT is way cool, he dies in 2 transfers, so I might end up killing him as well as my trainer, oh well, it doesn't bother me very much. We have some pretty sweet investigators lined up and hopefully we will have some baptismal dates by the end of the cycle. One guy totally told us that he does NOT want to get baptized, but we are still meeting with him, because he really does not understand it, that will be fun. That baptismal date for Nathan Muldez is on the 22nd, so I will not be there, but its all good. My last comp will take care of it all I am sure, he is training, so that will be good for the golden as well.
Today we caught a wasp, and stuck him in the freezer, so that he goes unconscious, and he did, and we tied a string around him and flew him around, it was fun.
So, cool thing today, we were part of this movie that the area presidency is making for the new area presidency, so a few companionships in the mission were picked out to be in these different settings to record mission work, it should be on the church website at the beginning of October, so I will let you know about that, I wore this sweet tie for it, with a diamond in it, so yeah...Today was pday, of course, and we played the game carcassone, and it is way fun. Random...yeah. Cool stuff about St. George, and that is crazy that Timmy is now 5 foot 8, good for him. Awesome about the Packers, they are gonna go all the way...I can feel it. or maybe the Cardinals. Keep me updated nonetheless.
So, yeah, that is almost all I got for ya this week, thanks for sending the package, I will definitely be waiting for it. Until then! Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz

Transferred to Bad Homburg...

Sweet stuff about all of the news from home. Matt has my room now? he better enjoy that bed! that thing is sweet, and my xbox, if the xbox live is reactivated, still use my gamer tag, and try and get the new set up for it, but if not, don't even worry, i will do it when i get home. WEll, big news for me, I am getting transferred to Bad Homburg, it is only like 15 minutes away on the Autobahn, but it is in another zone, and a ways from this sweet ward here, so, I will definitely miss it, and the members here.
So, just a heads up. Our investigator Nathan Muldez, 9 years old from a part member family, is going to be baptized by his dad on Aug 22, and we just finished teaching him all of the lessons last night, and he will be ready for it by then. We made him a sweet gospel study guide to help him with knowing all of the stuff, it was kinda tough teaching him, but it worked out in the end. Off to new and hopefully better things in my new area, so yeah. Such is the life of a missionary.
My suitcases right now are huge and heavy, I am definitely going to have to lighten the load before next transfers, and for sure before I get home. By the way, I bought a hair trimmer the other week, and it is sweet, in like 5 haircuts, it pays for it self! gnarly! TEll dad that I love him especially, and that he needs to get the NFL package...just kidding, I did hear that Favre was really retired now? We shall see, poor guy.Today is the last pday I will have here in Wiesbaden, and one of the last times I will see Elder Curtis, he is leaving to go home, he is done, he is a way cool guy, and I will miss him alot, but so its, If I ever do go up to Utah again after I get home, I will have some visits to make to people up there. WEll, that's all I got for ya' today, take care family, and thanks for being ready to send pictures, even when I am not, I will send them before christmas, I promise, because all of my cards will be used up by then, and it will be time to buy another one! Alright I love you all, and tell chloe I say hi, and rub her belly for me. Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz aka Mooker

Missed Elder Bentz' last letter

Dang, I totally sent that last week too! oh well. Fun stuff about Matt having to get a job and stuff, and Steve doing all that, and David Snow having a baby! sweet, that guy is pretty cool. too bad about the NFL package being so expensive, I heard that Michael Vick is reinststed into the NFL, but nobody wants him.

Well, this week was pretty cool.we didn't have too much stuff to do, but I did go on a split, and we had fun on that, and last night went to a sweet member appointment, who later took us to the commissary on base, and I bought a lot of fruit roll ups, so sweet. Nathan is doing well, and tonight we are going over the 10 commandments with him, and other stuff, we are making a bunch of picture books, and stuff to help him stay focused, and to help him understand and retain everything, so it is going well, but it is way harder than I thought it was going to be to teach a kid. Stani did not come to church again, and has not been reading, so it is getting kind of tough with her now too. We did meet this one pretty cool kid on the street the other day, who decided to give us his information, and we can't really decide WHY he did it, our approach was not anything special, and he started out by saying that he does not believe in God, but we got his number, so we shall see, I hope it goes well, but nonetheless, we need to do some hardcore finding to get somebody new too. So pray for us in that respect. Well, I am trying to think of something else to write, and I even asked my comp if anything cool happened this week, but alas, I have will have to wait 'til next week to get something new. Thanks for writing family, I love you all, and am thankful for your efforts in remaining a family. Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz aka Mooker
