So, just like the subject says, we got transfer calls this week. I will be staying in Erfurt (yay!) but, sadly, my companion Elder Griffin will be leaving. Tomorrow he'll get on a train and had down to Zwickau. Honestly its not too bad, he's still going to be in the same zone, but I'll really miss him. He is a great guy. Haha, at first he was a little different, and really short, but after our 4 months together I'm amazed at how big of a heart such a little bit can have. He's wonderful, wonderful!
My new companion will be Elder Bakly, and Elder Greaves is still in my district.
This week we had a lot of fallen out appointments. Remember the new Albanian family I told you about that replaced the other one that got deported? Well, this one is leaving too... So no more Albanians for us but, we did find a new investigator!
We were out talking on the street and we stopped this group of people. They didn't really look like the type of people to accept the gospel, (you know, dreads, lots of piercings, tattoos, etc) but we stopped them anyway. At first the group saw us and kind of laughed and then walked away, but then one of them stopped and asked us to tell him what we were doing. We quickly taught about the restoration, and then he told us that the night before he had prayed, and asked God to help him understand more about him. We met later in the week, and when we introduced the book of Mormon he got so excited! He loved it, and he's really excited to learn more!
The church is true! Sorry for the speedy letter, don't have a lot of time.
Have a great week!
LG Elder Oliphant.
