Big Chess is Big Fun

March 17th, 2006

The missionaries were invited to a JAE Tagung (Young Single Adult Activity Day) in the Nürnberg Stake. We had a missionary activity where we drove to different areas and had the young adults for our companions. It was a lot of fun, and we had an opportunity to proselyte where missionaries rarely get a chance to go because no missionaries live in the area.

After the areas had all been visited, we were brought back to the place where the activity day was being held. We couldn’t really do very much because were were in the middle of nowhere with no public transportation, so we had to wait for someone to give us a ride back to civilization. During this downtime some Elders played volleyball or did other activities. Elder Adams and I decided to give the giant chess board a go. There’s something very satisfying about throwing the opponent’s captured pieces off the board.

Elder Adams puzzles over his next move.
