Just a small email this week! Wow, you sure know how to write a lot, ha-ha. I'm very grateful that the Lord is taking care of all of you.
Things in Hamburg are great! We are having a tough time finding people, but naja, story of the mission, J!
S is basically a member already. He came to church for his third time in 3 weeks and loves the members. He fits right in and has such enthusiasm and excitement for finding the church and this new family. He believes Joseph Smith is a prophet and loves the things that he's learning in the Book of Mormon in his personal study. He's on fire, and feels the spirit every time he meets with us. He shared with us last week that the time when he felt he should leave the church he was attending he opened up his Bible and read Ezekiel 12:1-8. He said it was like God speaking clearly to him and instructing him. He's really excited for his baptism! On Aug 18th, 3 of our investigators will be baptized. It's very exciting! Elder M and I are doing great with teaching together.
Oma and Opa are doing great too. They've both been to church these past 2 weeks, and we are now meeting with them weekly for Mittagessen and for a lesson. They've also befriended S, which is great! We're bringing him with us this week to their home for lunch and a lesson.
We're working on getting the ward excited for missionary work. We have a ward activity this week which a couple members are already planning on bringing people to. We also have a church tour planned and will be teaching the first lesson throughout the tour J!
I love you guys. Thanks for the emails and letting me know how you're doing!
