We had a great week! But, every week is a great week on a mission :) Man, I love this city, and ward, and mission! It's the greatest! We said goodbye to elder Day this week, as we put him on a train and sent him off to the temple. Then we got to say hello to Elder Soup cube! Haha, his name is elder Bullion, like the broth cubes. It's so funny, everyone here has been making jokes about his name. But, I think Germans just do that with every name haha, I hear stuff about Oliphant all the time, and I love it! I love my name! But, we've been getting to know him and he's really funny. He was also elder Griffin's MTC companion, so that's fun.
We also had an amazing opportunity this week to learn from the leaders of the church in the missionary department. We had a worldwide missionary training broadcast where we learned from elder Bednar, elder Anderson, elder Oaks, and other members of the missionary department. They gave us a great reminder on repentance, and how we are called to teach repentance. These leaders didn't tell anything new. They told us exactly what we've heard multiple times, but the Spirit was so strong when they spoke, and their words rang into my heart, and I learned a lot from what they said, but more from what the spirit told me. I learned way more from the spirit than from what was said, and that's how it always is. It says in the doctrine and covenants that there is one teacher, and that's the spirit. He's the one that will teach us what we need to know, and he is the one that will also tell these German people that our message is true. And it is true! The church is true and I love it!
We did a lot of work this week with some of our less active members, and one of them came to church this week! Woohoo! I love working with less active member, I can just feel so much love for them.
Everything's also going well with Edwin, he still wants to be baptized in less than 3 weeks now! Woohoo! The church is so true! I know it, I live it, I love it!
Have a great week!
So cold!!! Grateful that we have a car!
