Yeah, I missed your email from last week because we had
to email way early in order to get to Bremen. Last Monday we wandered around the Bremen Weihnachtsmarkt and I managed to get presents for
everyone there. I just finished putting the packages together so I`ll
mail them out this week. If you're not counting I sure am! I will be
calling home 5:30 pm my time which should be 10:30 am Louisiana time.
We're only allowed to talk for an hour but I figure it just means I'll
be talking everyone's ears off when I'm home to catch you all up on fun
We have met with XXXXXXX a bunch since that first time. We are
actually going to her tomorrow for lunch and then the 22nd since she is
super scared the world is going to end on the 21st so the first time we
met with her we made out an appointment for that day and then one of the Christmas days (Germany has Christmas over 3 days) we are going to her
house to eat and celebrate. XXXXXXX is probably my favorite person in
the whole world here in Bremerhaven. She is just so funny and so cool.
I'm not sure when I will get the package you sent but I would guess
sometime in January, since we have a meeting every month. We just met
with the mission president on Wednesday and thats when I got mum and
dads package. Thanks for sending me something for Christmas!
No worries about Bruder XXXXXX. He showed me his calendar yesterday
and the day that he picked to be baptized again, January. He is
very excited and not giving up on this goal. I was able to talk to him this week on the phone
and he said he was grateful for Christ. I asked him why, and he said
because Christ died for him and gave his life for him even though he is a
sinner and Christ made it possible for him to have an eternal joy. What
an amazing testimony coming from someone who had no testimony of Christ
before. We're making progress!
I hope you're staying relatively stress free. I can't
wait to talk to you next week! I love you bunches!
