Another day, another transfer

Hey y'all! 

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 :)
