Hey y'all! Well... I have dreamed a dream! But, I wasn't that special. More important is that one of our investigators also dreamed a dream! He recently moved here from Spain, and we've been teaching him with the Spanish speaking sisters in Berlin, through Skype! His name is Edwin, and right before I got to Erfurt he just walked into the church on Sunday and wanted to have a better relationship with God. We've been teaching him for a while, and this last week we invited him to pray about being baptized. Well, he did, and that night he had a dream where he saw himself going into a pool of water, and going all the way under. Then he got out and went into a big white tower. God totally answers prayers!! We just need to have faith and a desire!! Edwin is going to visit his family for Christmas, and then when he comes back, in January, he's going to get baptized!
So yea! Other than that, We've been super, super busy this week! We've had to run to and from several appointments because we don't use the car in the city, and if we waited for the train we would've been late! Haha, it keeps us in shape! We're teaching lessons every day, and we've had a few service projects too! I Love Erfurt, the only Problem though is that everything is super spread out! We have less actives and investigators that live in the middle of no where, 50 km away! It's really hard for us to teach some of them, and it's hard for them to progress because they can't come to church. We met with another man who lives in a tiny little village called oberhof, 40 km south of Erfurt. He really wants to come to church and be baptized, but he can't find a way to get to Erfurt right now :( it's really sad, but we know that everything will work out! God wants all of his children to have the blessings that come from baptism, ALL OF THEM! It doesn't matter where they live! But, judging by how fast the work is going here, we're going to be opening up some new wards here. The other elders on our ward just got a media referral from a woman and she's going to be baptized in a few week! Jawohl!! This next week we're going to Berlin, again, for a zone conference and we're all really excited about that. Also, the Christmas market opens up this week, so I'm about to have no more money... Woohoo I love you, have a great week! LG Elder Oliphant
