A hike up a mountain!

Elder Schow and Elder Karl
hello everyone sorry I have been terrible at writing a blog! So this week was super cool! It was a holiday on the 15 th of August and no one was outside! So my companion elder Schow and I decided we would walk to the village right beside Colmar which is about 4 miles. So we walked there and once we got there we arrived into a wine festival. Haha it was beautiful but mostly tourist so we looked up and saw a huge castle called "Des trois château" and that was about another 6 miles up through a giant vineyard and through the woods.. Let me remind you that we are in church clothes. But my companion and I feel like we should go up this mountain. So we started our journey to the 3 castles and as we are walking we keep eating grapes off of the vineyard. About half way up we meet a family from Belgium. They were trying to get to the 3 castles as well but were a little lost. So we decided we would all go up together. They were confused why we had white shirts and ties so it was a great time to explain what we do and about the church. And also because I live in Brussels, Belgium for about 4 months we talked a lot about that! Fast forward 2 hours and we all make it to the top! It was incredible that the Lord gave us a prompting to climb up a mountain to teach a family from Belgium! Also the view was amazing you could see all the same villages around Colmar and also Colmar itself.
So we hiked 12 miles on foot to get to this mountain in church clothes... 
They asked us how we got their from Colmar we said we walked ... They asked if we used buses but because it was a holiday there were none so we told them how we have been walking all day. They thought it was incredible and had a lot of respect for what we do! It was so awesome! Also we have a 22 year old French girl that we teach now! Her name is Manon I might have said it before but she is awesome! She has a baptismal date for the 27th of September! It's crazy how fast time goes and that I will be home Ina couple of weeks!
I love you all! ❤️
