Well, another transfer down. Man the time just goes by too fast. But, there aren't going to be any changes in my district, we're all staying together! Yay! Haha, that's the first time on my whole mission that my district hasn't changed at all after a transfer, weird. But I'm excited to stay in Erfurt with elder griffin. We get along pretty well :)
So, the work. This week was a lot different, we had several appointments fall out, and we weren't able to meet everyone in our teaching pool, but we managed to use our time by visiting some of the older less active members in the ward that haven't been coming to church for a while. We had a lot of very spiritual moments with them. We visited this one sister who it turning 86 in two weeks, and at first she wasn't very happy that we came, but she let us in. We shared the new Christmas video, a Savior is born, with her, and at the end of our lesson she started crying and said a prayer for us, thanking Heavenly Father for inspiring us to come help her, because he knew exactly what she needed, even when she didn't. It's wonderful being able to see the lord work through us to help these people!
Another example of this comes with our investigator, Edwin. Honestly, I've never met anyone in my life who is more prepared than him. He is making so much progress, and every time we meet with him we can see his faith in Christ growing. I'm really excited for him, and for what the gospel will do to him and his family. Next week he'll be going to visit his family in Spain for Christmas, and he'll be there till the new year, but when he gets back we're going to be having a baptism, and hopefully we won't have to fill the font by hand this time ;) Well, I love you all! Please pray for me :)
