July 16, 2012

Dear Mother,
                Well, this week was interesting. Let’s start with the cool stuff. First of all, Elder Sanderson was transferred. TO München! He is going to be the next Assistant to the President. (Not assistant president.  That’s a joke for everyone who has watched The Office) and my new companion will be.... Elder Sonne. He was Elder Sullivan’s companion in Zollikofen, and I am excited to work with him :) second cool thing. There was a baptism in Interlaken, and we went. And it was cool. Because all baptisms are cool. The End.
                Now the learning experiences that we had. Namely 15 fallen out appointments. Which at least for us here in Bern is an obnoxiously high amount of fallen out appointments. Luckily this is the Lord`s work, so if He needs or wants us to have 15 fallen out appointments, then who am I to complain or to say that we could use our time better? But that doesn`t mean that I love it.
                Hahaha actually this week was hard, but not as hard as I made it sound. It was difficult to have so many fallen out appointments, but the Lord blessed us a lot. We met with I_________ yesterday, and she will be able to come to church next week, and that is a HUGE blessing. I am really grateful that the Lord heard our prayers. As well a really cool member, Jallow, from Ghambia, got his visa extended so he can stay for at least 2 more years, and that is really a cool blessing as well.
                Well we are busy today because its Elder Sanderson`s last p day, so we have a lot to do. But I wanted to give my testimony, that Jesus is the Christ. He is the son of God, and He has invited us, over and over again, "to come unto Him", to follow Him and his example, to say and do the things that he would say and do, and to become "even as he is". He has promised us that if we do so, we shall have peace in this life, and eternal life in the world to come. Of this peace, and of the capacity of our Savior to provide such peace, even in our turbulent times, I testify, in his Holy name.

Elder Terry
