Well, another merry old week in the Christmas Capitol of the world! I love Germany at Christmas time, it is literally the best! We've been able to do a lot of work this week with the Christmas initiative, #EinErrettorIstGeboren and we've seen some really positive feedback from the people here from that video, and the message behind it. Everyone here loves Christmas, and it's one of the only times where all of the people here actually think about Christ and go to church!(except for the members, they're doing that all the time 🙃🙃)
We haven't had a ton of time to share the Christmas initiative with people in finding, but that's just because we've been teaching a ton! I just wish we had more time in the day to find, teach, baptize and keep!
Things are going really well with Edwin. He's preparing himself for baptism, but this week he'll be off to Spain to spend Christmas with his family. We'll have one more lesson with him, and then he'll be gone until January. It has been such an honor to work with him, and to see his faith grow. Also, I've started learning Spanish so I can talk to him better! El evangelio de Jesucristo es verdadero! Estoy agradecido por el Evangelio! Haha :) if any of you Spanish speakers have any tips, let me know!!
We also had a zone conference, where we got our Christmas packages! I got mine, but I haven't opened it yet, it's just sitting under the Christmas tree.
I'm super excited for this week, and I'm just super happy! Oh, I also sent my Christmas package today, so I hope you get it soon! Hopefully before Christmas!
Love you! LG Elder Oliphant
