April 30, 2012

                Well guess what? this week was awesome. And the first reason for awesomeness is...
S________! Our investigator from Tibet. Man he is so cool. His German and English both are limited, but he is learning them both ridiculously fast. He has an amazing desire to learn and is super humble. On Tuesday we brought him to institute, and he had a great time hanging out with the young single adults, and it was cool for him to develop some friends. Then Sunday he came to church and after church we took him to a family’s house, the Bradys. They are from America, and their 19 year old son just came from BYU to spend a month with his family before he goes on a mission, and he helped us teach S_______. It was really cool to see.
                2nd reason for awesomeness: R______. We met with her on Saturday, and we talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ, (that is faith, repentance ,baptism, Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end) and we got to repentance and she told us that she wanted to be baptized but she didn`t know when. Man, that is every missionary's dream. So we set a baptismal date with her. Unfortunately something happened at her apartment so she couldn`t come to church, but she is doing good.
                Third reason for awesomeness: A cool family from Eeretria. So few weeks ago we visited a family from Eretria. The mom had interest, but she can`t speak English or German, so we couldn`t really communicate. But we went again, and this time her 16 year old daughter was there, who was able to translate for her, and the daughter had interest as well. They couldn`t come to church yesterday, but hopefully next week they will be able to come to church as a family!!!! Yeah, families are the best!
                Anyways, that is just a few of the reasons why this week was awesome. I am really enjoying my time here in Bern. It is crazy how fast time is passing by. I swear when you are a kid a day feels like forever, but man, the days are flying by now. But Elder Sanderson and I are working hard and are really focused on finding those people that the Lord has prepared for us. And man, there are so many of them. I hope you are all doing well, and I hope you have a great week. I love you!!
