I love that you can remember all the people we teach.
You're doing a better job than some other people who are in the field!
We had an amazing appointment with XXXXXXX and her Mum and Dad this past
week. XXXXXXX is the best joint teach except that she isn't baptized
yet. We have an appointment to eat Abend Brot (supper) with her tonight and help
her take all her Christmas decorations down because she can only raise
one arm. The other one was injured really bad in an accident she had
when she was younger. Her Dad is skeptical but it s a great start to get
him open to the gospel. Her Mom loves the plan of salvation pamphlet as
well. Her parents even told us that we should all go to the restaurant
that their other daughter owns, have lunch there and teach their
daughter and her family. We are really making a difference in this family's life. It's so neat! XXXXXXX is probably my favorite person in all
XXXXXX is doing good. We have been calling each other back and forth
but he hasn't set up a time with us so that we can meet again. We keep
trying. It's hard because when he was in the Christmas market he couldn't
go anywhere so our appointments were always fest (fixed) but now he doesn't
have to work there and he is back to being a normal person. I'll keep
The weather in Bremerhaven is great. The north sea really is a
miracle worker for keeping the weather here normal. On friday we did
ride our bikes all over captivity (Dorum to Midlum then Midlum to Wremen) and of course we were always riding against the wind. It was so
strong I felt like a dog could have walked faster than we were riding
it. It made for some good exercise though.
Yes, I come home to Atlanta May 1st. I will be getting your Christmas
package on the 10th if it has already arrived at the office because we
have zone training meeting. We have started a project in our mission to
read the Book of Mormon from January 6th to April 6th all the way
through. Want to do it with us? I'll be sure to send you the schedule.
President Kosak wants to become a ''Book of Mormon mission'' and so we
will all be reading it together. I'm excited to do it as an entire
mission. You can really notice the difference it makes in the work.
I'm so glad that you got to be there for Diana's Sealing. What a neat
experience. No, I haven't been to the temple since last December. I'm
kind of going crazy. You are only allowed to go to the temple when you
serve in an area close to the temple. There was a rule with President
Pimentel that if it got to your last transfer and you still had not been
you were allowed to go so hopefully sooner than later I will get to go
again. I did go in July with the Halberstadt branch for Baptisms but I
did not do an endowment session. I have no idea what will happen. One of
us (Sister Dean or myself) are bound to move because 19 sisters are
coming in next transfer and basically that means everyone has to train.
Our area is so ginormous though we are hoping that maybe we will be able
to split the area and both train here. We will see.
I'm way proud of you for doing so well at work. Keep it up. Make sure
you and Michael go ahead and plan dates to go to the temple because
other things are sure to pop up if you don't set the dates in stone yet.
I love and miss you! Have a great week!
