November 18, 2013

Hey everybody!

85 degrees..... I can assure you that it is not 85 degrees here haha. I can imagine that that is nice though. It's getting pretty dang cold over here. Getting closer and closer to the 0 mark on the thermometer (Celsius of course, but still...) Probably won't be too much longer before we start to see some snow. We'll see though.

We did get to go to the temple on Saturday, which was awesome. We actually went up pretty early in the morning and did confirmations for a baptism session. It was a ward temple trip so it was just us and members of the ward. So that was sweet. Two Americans doing confirmations in German of people with French names... it was beautiful. But then we were also able to do an endowment session with all the adult ward members officiated by our branch president and his wife.. so that was pretty cool. 

I did receive the first birthday package and it was wonderful. The Take-5's are already gone. 

That's sweet that Stake Conference had a lot to do with Hastening the Work... ours here in Heidelberg did as well. It's pretty nice to be a missionary now and have that as a resource in our interactions with members. It'll be interesting to look back down the road and see how these changes take shape. Pretty exciting. 

Well, it was good to have some good news about BYU sports... I'm glad the basketball team is looking good. I miss BYU basketball probably more than football. Crazy that the season is already starting up again. That's too bad about Todd Christensen... dang. 

But yeah, this week was good. The temple was a highlight, but we had fun. This is the last week of the transfer... which is insane. Time goes so fast. But we have the opportunity tomorrow to meet with President Osguthorpe, the General Sunday School President, tomorrow for a missionary meeting. It's just Frankfurt Zone, Langen, and Darmstadt districts so that will be pretty sweet. We're excited for that. 

But other than that, I hope everything is going well, and that everyone has a great week.
