November 2, 2011

Wednesday is interview and meetings day for couples around here and it is a zoo!  Things begin with couples arriving at around 8:30 and it's like a busy foyer outside the Stake Offices only nicer.  Couples bring cookies and cake which they did this morning and Brent had already made a banana loaf, so there was lots of visiting and joviality going on - lots of fun, but don't try to get anything important done because you can't concentrate!  One of the meetings is a language training meeting which is great - we NEED it.  I even worked hard on preparing a prayer because last week, they called on the sister that arrived here a few months before us and she couldn't do it - I didn't want to be in that situation - but, guess what! they called on her again, but this time she was ready.  We are improving a very little bit though.

Elder and Sister Andros were gone the whole afternoon which left us to fend for ourselves, but it was very quite and even some of our computers were off-line for about 4 hours - only two were working, so it was just as well that there were not more people needing to get online.

Most all the Greek people we spoke to today are VERY upset about the condition of their country.  I really feel sorry for them.  I really feel that the ordinary Greek person is not to blame much.
