Hey hey hey!
Well, the winds of change have come and gone, and Elder Griffin left with it :( I miss him a lot, he was a great companion. But, with him leaving comes a new companion, and adventure! I'm now serving with Elder Bakley. He's from Montana, he loves the Bible is a huge zelda fan, and is going home in 5 weeks... He's super old on the mission, so we're going to get work done!
We spent most of the week trying to get Elder Bakley acquainted with the area, members, investigators, etc(which is really really hard because it's a huge area) but we did a pretty good job I think.
The best part of the week was definitely Sunday. So a few weeks ago Elder Griffin and I were going by on a few less active members here in Erfurt, and we went by on one, and when we went by on one brother, we found out that he was mentally handicapped, and his family used to be in the church, but they removed their records. The mother invited us in, and we stayed teaching them. Everytime we go by we have just the most spiritual lessons. Yesterday we talked about the first vision, and it was one of the strongest spiritual experiences of my mission. This woman used to have a strong testimony of the gospel, but through time it stopped growing and she lost what she had. But, it's still there! We just have to help her refind it, and the spirit is helping us so much! #ChurchIsTrue
Other than that not a whole lot happened. But we had fun, and we're excited for the coming week!
Love ya! Stay classy!
