We had a really fun time this week, and we learned a ton! First of all, how was that general conference, huh? I always knew that German was a special language :) haha! Go President Uchtdorf!!
But, really, what he said about God being able to take someone in ruins, that may look completely hopeless and destroyed, and rebuild him into someone great is so true. The atonement is for everyone! This talk also had special meaning for me, because I actually had the opportunity to serve and preach the gospel in Dresden, the city where the beautiful Frauenkirche is. I'm so grateful to be serving a mission in this blessed country.

This week we also went on exchanges, and I got to do one more great exchange with Elder Weber. Haha, we've been in the same district for such a long time, that this was our 6th exchange! Mensch, sechs mal! Das ist doch verrückt, oder? I love Elder Weber, he's a great elder. On this exchange we went and visited a few of the older sisters in the ward who are too sick/old to regularly come to church. We wanted to share a message with one of them about feasting on the words of Christ, but when we got there the other member that we came with just started talking and talking, and we didn't get a word in! He talked for 45 minutes strait! Haha, crazy! I love older people. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot from Elder Weber.
One more week of the transfer, it's gonna be good! Love ya!
P.S. My companion and Elder Seegmiller are doing "monkey week" where they're only eating bananas
