Wow, yesterday I celebrated my 19 month mark! I can't believe how fast the time has flown right by! I love it so much! The transfer also just ended, and I've already had to say goodbye to elder Bakly. He's currently on a train headed off to Freiberg, and then back home. And, the best part is, I'll be staying in Erfurt! Woo hoo! And my new companion will be Elder Powell. He's pretty young on the mission, but I've already met him a few times, and I'm really excited to work with him!
This week was pretty good. We've been working with a woman, Petra, who moved here a few years ago from the Czech Republic, and she is so excited for the gospel! We taught her this week about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and when we gave our testimony of His Atonement and resurrection she started crying. She wants to be baptized next month! Let's hope all goes well there!
We also had a Zone training meeting in Jena, where we talked about the work, and what we can do to get more baptisms. Elder Weber is getting transferred, I'll miss that guy. Hopefully we'll have a little more time together, but we're both just running out of time. It's so crazy how the time flies by! That's why we use every minute, and don't waste a single bit of it!
The church is super true! I love Erfurt, I'm so glad I'll get to stay for at least 7 more weeks(7 week transfer!)
Wish me luck!
