Good day, acquaintances.

Well, this week was a crazy one. We started off this week with a total of 0 investigators with a baptismal date and ended with a legendary 3 investigators with baptismal dates.

Let us go through them. Jason, he is a son of a member in our ward, who we’ve been meeting with quite often and playing sports with every week. He is trying hard to find an answer for whether or not the church is true, and if he should get baptized. Well this legend decides to take the 2nd of December as a date for him to get baptized, as he searches further and further to see if the church is true.

NEXT on the list, we have our legend Georg. He is an older gentleman, but he has got quite the young sense of humor might I say. He is getting married, and then gonna get baptized about a week later, how legendary. He reads in the scriptures about an hour a day, and isn’t even a member yet! That’s a pretty solid roast to all of you who ain’t got time for that. An overall legend.

Last but certainly not least, we have our friend Richmond from the wonderful country of Africa. He’s very new to Germany, but has family members in our church and realllyyyyy wants to be baptized. He has already fought against his job to get Sundays free, and he was finally at church on Sunday as well! If all goes well, we can probably get our legend baptized on the 1st of December.

Overall, I am super pleased and satisfied with how well the work is going here. We continue to find new people to teach every week, lose a few every now and then, but wow, it’s wonderful. Anyways, enough with the sappy stuff.

We had the chance to go out with some „future missionaries“ on splits this week which was fun. It was good to have a solid conversation with someone who can tell me all about the new xbox games coming out and which ones I gotta play and which ones I shouldn’t. No, but he was a legend. We met ourselves with Georg, drank some God-sent peach tea, some less God-sent weird cake things, and he had a great time getting a taste of the mission life. He did wonderful, also gave out his first Book of Mormon out of many to come.

On our mini splits, we were standing in a bus back to the church, and I heard a small family speaking English. Now friends, in Hamburg, hearing English isn’t so rare. But bear in mind, even though not many speak it correctly, there are other countries where the people speak English that can be living in Germany. For example: anywhere in the UK, many parts of Africa, Canada, usw (etc.). This family though was speaking the real correct English, I could just feel it. I headed down towards them and was straight up with them. I started off, „Excuse me, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I couldn’t help but notice that you guys sound very American.“ Of course they were, and we got to have a solid American conversation with two people not from Utah. Wonderful.

In any case, the work here is walking beautifully, and it’s amazing to see the power the gospel and the Book of Mormon can have in changing people’s lives and bringing them closer to our Father in Heaven.

Stay lit this week boys.
