Well, another week gone by. And with this week, comes another
transfer. We got our call on Saturday, and it was so suspenseful!
Elder Drazin and elder Hall had both been in their area for more than
7 months, so, naturally, they both wanted to leave. However, they also
didn't think that president Fingerle would white wash their program.
Well, they were wrong. Elder drazin is going to Halberstadt, near
Hanover, and elder Hall is going up to Heide, above Hamburg. I've
really enjoyed my time with both of these great elders. We've become
such good friends, I'll miss them. Elder Teuscher and I will be
staying together! Yay, first companion that I've had for more than two
transfers! And I trained him too, what? Haha, that's cool. We're
excited to stay here :) Dresden is such a pretty city, and our ward is
fantastic! A few more fun facts for the new transfer, one of the
sisters programs is closing, we're getting a new senior couple in
Dresden, and I'm the new district leader! Needless to say, we're all
hoping for a good transfer together.

So, the week. We've been seeing a lot of great success lately. As you
may know, there is a big conflict in the Middle East, and refugees are
pouring into Europe. This is good because these people are humble. But
most of them are Muslim, And we aren't allowed to teach them unless
they have a visa. It makes it hard when you have someone who wants to
learn and progress, but for their own safety they can't. It's really
hard. We just have to trust that God has a time, place, and purpose in
all things, and he will help them.

We've been really trying to work with our ward, and find activities
that we can do with them that can help them share the gospel with
there friends, so if you have any ideas let me know!

Sorry for the lame letter this week, we don't have a lot of time
today. We have our last p day with the other elders and we want to
enjoy it.

Bye, love you! I pray for you!
