February 3, 2014, Hamburg

Dear Family,

We have 2 baptisms planned for the 15th and 16th! We're hoping and praying that they will go through! We're going to do everything we can!

            This weekend was crazy; let me tell you a little about it. Our train left from the train station at 6:28am on Friday to Berlin. We set our clock for 5:15am  and it didn't go off!! We woke up at 6:00am, and threw our clothes on and ran to catch the bus leaving at 6:10! We barely made the bus and it's a 20min ride to the Bahnhof, …and the bus driver was taking his sweet time! We're like, “Come on!” We were praying like crazy that we'd catch that train. Well he made it in 15mins to the Bahnhof and we barely made it with 2 minutes to spare, ha-ha. That was so stressful! We then bought shaving stuff in the Bahnhof and shaved at the church in the bathroom, lol.

On the way home all the trains were canceled and were replaced with a bus. So we bought our ticket and ran to where the bus was leaving from (a completely different train station) and just made it in time. The bus driver looked at our ticket and said...ja,  Deutche Bahn does this a lot!  You can't ride with me with that ticket. We just looked at him in disbelief. He told us to go talk to DB information. So we went all the way back to the main train station and the man luckily gave us our money back for the ticket...but now it was like, 7:30pm -  no trains back to Hamburg. So, we had to stay the night in that AP's apartment lol. Ja...Abendteuer (adventure) :J Oh and we were running around the whole time carrying the sisters boxes of Books of Mormon, lol.

   Thanks for your emails, and I'll do everything I can these last 2 weeks to finish strong! Mom, I haven't spent money yet, but probably will today. Kass, thanks for the email, and I hope things go well with the      P-90X ha-ha! Charlene keep being you, you're awesome! 

I love you all,

Elder Luening
