February 4, 2013

Dear Mom,
                This past week has been awesome. Like planned we went to St Moritz for p day and watched the world championships for bobsled and skeleton. It was pretty cool. Anyways I also went to Zürich on Wednesday to lengthen my visa so that I can stay in Switzerland. I can`t lie, it is really weird not to be going home next week. It has now been officially 2 years since I left, and next week Elder Rosenvall and Elder Jacklin and Elder Esplin from my MTC group head home. Aren`t I lucky that I get to stay? Anyways on to the spiritual good stuff.

                This week was awesome. Yesterday was fast and testimony meeting, and all of the testimonies were about missionary  work. I absolutely loved it. (Oh a shout out for Trent Howard: Sasha from Switzerland says hi. He says he played on the PG soccer team and knows you.)   Anyways back to the spiritual, the lessons with Benjamin are going great. We were able to talk to him about Sabbath Day observance and the Law of Chastity, and everything is going awesome. He understands it all and wants to do what is right. We also had a great appointment with Bruno Leber, a guy from Colombia. At the end of the appointment he gave us a hug and told us that it really helps him a lot that we come and visit him and share the gospel with him. That was really cool. 

                Other news... Yuri is struggling. We aren`t really sure what we can do to help him, and Pres. Miles suggested that maybe he needs a break from our visits. So we’ll probably explain that to him this week. Hopefully it will help him get his head on straight. 
                Other than that, we had a finding day in Richterswil, and ended up going door to door for a long time, but we found a really cool lady. We rang at her door and through the speaker she asked who we were, and we said  that we are missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ and she said Of the latter day saints? the Mormons? Come in. Turns out she knows a family that are members and she has a lot of faith in God, and has a lot of family difficulties. We had a really great lesson. It was awesome! 
                Well I am not sure what else there is to say other than the church is simply true. And missionary work is simply the best! Have a great week!
